Blackmagic Design today announced that Protist Lab Films built an innovative 6K camera setup mounted to a microscope using a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K digital film camera to shoot microscopic single celled protists, some of the Earth’s smallest creatures. The videos are edited and graded using DaVinci Resolve editing, color grading, visual effects (VFX) and audio post production software.

Protist Lab Films is run by former water lab technician and sound engineer Fabian Weston. After 25 years as a sound engineer and music producer working alongside some of Australia’s best musicians, engineers and producers, including working in house at the famous Albert Studios, Weston returned to his passion for microscopy and the fascinating creatures that microscopes reveal.

Weston started Protist Lab Films a few years ago with only a microscope and his phone camera. He was familiar with Blackmagic Design from his years in the music and entertainment industry. After an industry friend recommended Blackmagic Design, Weston began looking at its extensive catalog of options. He soon discovered the extent to which both hardware and software from the Melbourne based company could assist him in his work at the microscope.
