Blackmagic Cameras and Michelle Pizanis
Two of the year's biggest films are "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Furious 7." Both movies had some of the most amazing action footage ever shot. They both contain action and stunt scenes beyond what seems possible to shoot live. And they both had Michelle Pizanis working on them.
