2019 is going to be an exciting year for EMAGIC, promising cool regular contracts locally from some meetings we have had already. We are also content investors for two video-heavy projects, which will be about creating regular, engaging and fun content for users. It’s all hush-hush for now, but keep your eyes peeled for launch updates! For the second year running, we have been commissioned to produce and deliver a film for cinema. This will be delivered as a DPX sequence, which if you don’t know already, is a cinema-specific way of delivering files. We may only just be looking at locations now, but we’re already looking forward to getting suited and booted for another premiere!
This year we are also pushing out 3D like never before. We have invested in new technology that renders animations and CG elements over 12x faster than before, allowing us time to get creative and think about camera angles more. On top of this, we have partnered with a render farm, enabling us to render more cost effective, time-saving animations and CG Sequences.
Dear all filmmakers, we just launched our new LUT pack!
We love the way that colour grading can change the mood of a shot completely, or draw the attention of the audience to certain details. Also, retaining correct colour detail in skin tones can literally make or break a grade, So most of the LUTs in this pack retain skin tones, obviously all grades can’t do this, for example, the Saving Private Ryan grey-blue look would look weird if the only reds and pinks were visible in faces.
Those of you that shoot in LOG format, that love the way we colour our videos, can now purchase a pack of 21 premium looks that we use on our client’s videos. Autumn has inspired our recently created LUTS, as you may have seen in our location postcards (check out our previous blog post!) and we love muted deep greens or blues and oranges that really pop. But don’t take our word for it, see them all for yourself here:
We like sharing our knowledge and contributing to keeping the standard of work in our industry high. Making our favourite original EMAGIC LUTS accessible is a great way of sharing cinematic colour.

Do you love what you do?
Here at EMAGIC we have a passion for film and you can see that in our work. To keep that creative fire going, we shoot our own projects where we have full creative control over all aspects; composition, colour grading and narrative. Inspired by the beauty that autumn brings with it, we’ve been exploring contemporary framing and the capabilities of modern cinema cameras when it comes to dynamic range and capturing detail.
Here are two postcards, focussing on locations in Lichfield and Bristol in autumn.
