We had the chance to speak to Grant Petty of Blackmagic Design at this year’s NAB conference. It was as much of a conversation about technology and innovation as it was a conversation about human nature.

In today’s episode, No Film School’s Jourdan Aldredge speaks with Blackmagic CEO Grant Petty to discuss:

  • Developing the URSA Cine with a post-production mindset
  • Zero-cost options from Blackmagic for beginners
  • Why Grant doesn’t like to compete with others
  • PYXIS camera and its features
  • Creating products that lend to an efficient post-production workflow
  • Exciting new changes and updates to DaVinci Resolve 19
  • Grant’s opinion on AI and the future of editing
  • The moment he fell in love with color correction
  • Feeling lonely and misunderstood
  • Why you have to be a ruthless, yet empathetic product engineer
