‘Being Evel’ Traces the Legend of Evel Knievel

For his documentary Being Evel, which examines the life of American daredevil Robert “Evel” Knievel and reflects on the voracious public appetite for spectacle, director Daniel Junge shot more than 60 interviews to accompany a range of rich archival materials. The film’s interviews were conducted in greenscreen studios so that each could be composited later with archival footage and effects.

Each interview was shot from various angles with four Blackmagic Cinema Cameras, then composited into a single unique backdrop for the film. Once the interviews were shot, both new and archival footage going back to the 1950s was converted using a Teranex 2D Processor. All footage was sent through the Teranex unit, where an initial color balance was completed, and then footage was converted to 1080p. Final color correction took place in Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve.
