WORLD NEWS Call Me Maybe video spoof resolved B lackmagic Design have announced DaVinci Resolve 9 was used by New York City based colourist and online editor Juan Salvo for finishing and color correcting the wildly popular Cookie Monster music video spoof of the Carly Rae Jepsen song Call Me Maybe. Directed by Josh and Jason Diamond of the Diamond Brothers and produced by Jim Muscarella for New York based production company The Hidden Fortress, the spoof was created to support an already popular tweet from Sesame Street and quickly became one of the most popular viral videos in the United States. In order to capitalise on the popularity of the tweet and the viral nature of social media, the project needed to be completed within only a couple of days, and Resolve 9s speed, efficiency and acceleration of the overall color correction workflow were essential to meeting the incredibly tight deadline.

But sending camera crews to news hot spots, especially in remote locations, can be difficult, costly, and even dangerous. Vizrt recently launched a new service called DigitalGlobe Online that gives Vizrt customers access to DigitalGlobes vast satellite imagery library. Part of the DigitalGlobe Online service is FirstLook, a faster, more cost- effective way to capture events from around the world. www.vizrt.com TV-BAY MAGAZINE | 09
