Blackmagic Design today announced that DP Zak Mulligan used its Pocket Cinema Camera 4Ks to help capture FX’s new docuseries The Most Dangerous Animal of All. The series also made use of DaVinci Resolve Studio for color grading, which was completed by Partner and Senior Colorist Shane Reed of Los Angeles based post production studio Apache.
Based on The New York Times bestselling book of the same name, The Most Dangerous Animal of All is a four part documentary series that explores Gary Stewart’s search for identity. As Stewart searches for the father who abandoned him, he believes his father is the Zodiac killer, one of the most infamous serial killers in American history.
Mulligan and his team had a tight production schedule and a modest crew but wanted to capture several angles for each interview setup, so they chose two Pocket Cinema Camera 4Ks. Mulligan also found the camera’s cinematic image quality especially useful when capturing the right look for the footage.
“The Pocket Cinema Camera 4K was immensely helpful due to its small size and an image quality that punches well above its weight class,” Mulligan concluded. “Our main challenge was getting the coverage we needed with a small crew traveling around the country. The price, weight and size of the Pocket Cinema Camera 4Ks easily filled that need.
