""Blackmagic Design today announced that colorist Tony Dustin of Hollywood-based Technicolor used the DaVinci Resolve Linux non-linear color correction system for color grading work done on Paramount Pictures/Relativity Media?s critically acclaimed feature film "The Fighter" directed by David O. Russell. The film stars actor/producer Mark Wahlberg, Amy Adams, and recent Golden Globe winners Christian Bale and Melissa Leo, and is currently in theaters nationwide.

"Using the DaVinci Resolve system to give the film a rich, realistic look, Dustin worked alongside Russell, post production supervisor Christopher Kulikowski and cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema. Together, they created an atmosphere to illustrate the grittiness of the boxing gym and the authenticity of the Boston-area working class against the backdrop of Lowell, Massachusetts, while also capturing the intensity of the professional ring. "Russell wanted "The Fighter" to feel as genuine and powerful as the original story, Dustin explained, so we needed to make every shot look human, not processed."
