Fremont, CA - August 21, 2014 - Blackmagic Design today announced that the music visualizer for Owl City's newest track, "Wolf Bite," was shot on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera (EF) and color graded on DaVinci Resolve 11. The video is one of the first projects in the world to be finished on the newest version of DaVinci Resolve.
Following hits like "Fireflies," "Vanilla Twilight," and the Carly Rae Jepsen duet, "Good Time," Owl City's latest track, "Wolf Bite," comes from the recently released Ultraviolet EP. The video for "Wolf Bite" features people dressed as wolves riding bikes and dancing throughout the streets around New York City. Shot by Director of Photography Tim Buttner and directed by Andrew William Ralph, the video contains dramatic artistic elements, harsh and low lighting and a number of visual effects.
"When I spoke with Andrew leading up to the video shoot, we talked about the look being pretty artistic and open, considering he was going to do some stylized animations over it," said Tim. "The first thing he asked was for me to shoot the moon; however, the full moon had just passed. Luckily, I had shot the full moon over the winter in RAW at 24fps on my Blackmagic Cinema Camera for my own purposes. This gave us a great shot of the moon to start with and set the frame rate for the project."

It's my great pleasure to introduce the latest design change to the Tim Butt 2 Productions website: the Homepage! I throught about changing the design back to a more simple design for a while. As much as I loved that you got so much on the homepage... I felt it was too much. There's still plenty going on on the new home page. There's the new Featured News Headlines area, the Slider remains, some new Homepage Buttons have been added, and finally the HTML5 Animation.
So what's the deal with the Featured News Headlines area? This is just a place where the latest and most important news items will be featured. Not every news story will make it here, so you still have to check out the news section, however it's the place to see on first visit that news is happening. And, unlike the news section, it's not tied to a SQL Database because I'll personally update it with the news I feel should be featured.
There's no change to the Slider, which will continue to feature the latest and featured videos, but the Homepage Buttons now will function in a similar manner for Featured Photography and Artwork. This is so that visitors can get a brief glimpse at whether I've recently done any new photos or art and can quickly navigate to see it.
Finally the HTML5 Animation is going to be a place for me to channel my new craven to do web animation. I will be adding a portal in my Visual Arts Section to more HTML5 Animations as I complete them. However, on my homepage I intend to start doing special homepage animations. Maybe the seasons... maybe something else. It will be a fun surprise that I look forward to sharing with you.
