Horsepower Under the Hood: Producing Graveyard Carz in 4K
Bringing Story Sense — and a Few Surprises — to a Show About Craftsmanship That Defies Instant Gratification
StudioDaily discovered muscle-car-restoration reality show Graveyard Carz back in 2011, when Springfield, Oregon production company The Division had just begun shopping the fledgling program around for TV deals. We checked in again in 2013, as the show revved up its third season on Discovery's Velocity channel. Back then, it was an interesting case study because the show was riding the trend of using relatively inexpensive DSLRs to get a high-quality, cinematic look in HD. Today, the show airs internationally and is shooting its latest season more lavishly, capturing 4K with the Sony F55. Executive producers Aaron Smith and D.L. Watson of The Division Productions filled us in on what's changed and what's stayed the same.
