Behind the Curtain of Blackmagic Design with President Dan May

If you are an avid listener of this podcast you know how much I LOVE Blackmagic Design products. From giving away Davinci Resolve for free to releasing a 4K Pocket Camera with RAW, Blackmagic is truly in the corner of every filmmaker. Their motto is…

“Power to the people!”

I always wanted to know how and why they make such amazing products for filmmakers at such ridiculously affordable prices. Today’s guest, Dan May – President of Blackmagic Design, would be the man to ask. I go deep into the weeds on how the company works, why they make their products so accessible to so many people and why they care so much about the little guy.

Just to clarify, no I was not paid for this interview at all. I really wanted to get into the mind of one of my favorite camera and post production companies. We also talk a little bit about gear.

Enjoy this rare look behind the curtain at Blackmagic Design with Presient Dan May.
