Blackmagic Design today announced that the feature film and Australian streaming service STAN exclusive “The Spy Who Never Dies” was shot using two Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K Pro digital film cameras, with visual effects (VFX), editing and color grading done on DaVinci Resolve Studio as part of a major shift in production operations by independent production house Rhythmic Films.

An action comedy, “The Spy Who Never Dies” follows the story of world class spy Brad, played by Paul O'Brien, who falls for a seemingly normal veterinarian named Veronica (Georgia Walters). Hijinks and action ensue as Brad tracks down Russians with stolen hypersonic missiles and battles a mysterious character called Trident who is bent on revenge, all while trying to build a ‘normal' relationship outside the spy world.

Despite being Rhythmic Films largest project, production for “The Spy Who Never Dies” was hamstrung by the COVID pandemic, forcing the Wollongong, New South Wales based production house to creatively rework its film operations to compensate for tough new close contact rules. This included shooting the feature film in blocks due to COVID shutdowns, using the time in between to rebuild rigs to strip away unnecessary parts to ensure that limited on set time was used with maximum efficiency.
