Cotton StrapShot EV1 Holster
Cotton StrapShot EV1 Holster
Photographers need to be ready to take a photo at a moment's notice, but must be diligent in protecting the expensive equipment they are using. Ditching a lens cap for a cheap UV filter reduces the time it take you to go from camera off to click the shutter. Camera bags are chosen for their ability to keep gear safe and how easy they allow you to access that gear. If you are of an adventurous mind and spend your time hiking through the woods, casting a line in a river, or any number of outdoor activities, you face the same two problems but to more of an extreme. The Cotton StrapShot EV1 Holster is here to lend a helping hand. Read More

Recreating 300's Epic Cliff Jump Shot By Fractal Visuals
Recreating 300's Epic Cliff Jump Shot By Fractal Visuals
Few shots were more iconic than the epic cliff jump shot in Zack Snyder's 300 when Leonidas is traveling to meet with the Ephors. The seemingly unreachable ledge that may just be within grasp, given the proper motivation, stuck with director John Byron Hanby, IV and 10 years later he was lucky enough to be able to pay homage to 300 while Fractal Visuals was making a short film to Silversun Pickup's "Ragamuffin." Hanby walks us through the process of how his team at Fractal Visuals accomplished the epic jump. Read More

Content Insider #521 - Visible Flight
I always believe that less government is better but the recent ruling that you don't have to register certain "classes" of drones just doesn't feel right. The idea of anyone, everyone throwing a drone in the air without some ground rules on what they can do, can't do and what type of training they need is a little cause for concern. Somehow it just feels like the new freedom will come back and hurt people who use them to take exciting shots and make a living doing creative work. I could be wrong but still believe that kids who get theirs (ok dad got it for him) should get training in the rules of the road and regulations/requirements. Just hope his playing doesn't impact the M&E industry or business across the board. Read More

There was something for everyone at NAB the way things are moving so rapidly. So we'll break down our discussion over several weeks...it's easier that way. TV is still where most people watch their content they just do it in a bunch of different ways. And thanks to all the online services that are cropping up there is new stuff to watch. That's good news for filmmakers as long as they can establish the right relationships. Yes that's the tough part but not half as tough as being a cable company and watching your "this show at this time" numbers shrink. Fortunately they also own the last 100, last 10 feet to the house so they have to shift their business model. Things are changing so fast you really don't want to go to sleep tonight because when you wake up....BAM!!! Read More

I like free stuff as much as anyone and that's certainly true of video content. I even like the idea that someone is willing to underwrite my watching the content. Part of the reason is that I know most of the people who prepare that content for consumption are independent creatives not the "big company" - Netflix, Amazon, Sony, ABC, BBC, you name it. I'm glad TDO was told to go pound sand when he asked for a "little" ransom to give back Orange is the New Black. Hopefully others will say no to the hackers/cybercriminals so they know stealing may be fun but it's no way to make a living. It's time to protect your content...it's too valuable to pay for a second time! Read More

There was a ton to see at this year's NAB and over the next few weeks we'll look at what most filmmakers are doing today - 4K and trending toward HDR. It was 4K that is now being used by almost every filmmaker to do feature length films, documentaries, episodic series and marketing content for use to describe new prroducts, their applications and provide service/support. And the great thing for filmmakers is that the marketplace has opened up beautifully for them with financial opportunities - follow the money - with Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, iTunes, Vimeo and yes the kids favorites YouTube and Facebook. Every content delivery channel - we'll cover the trend/opportunities soon - around the globe is looking for good and insanely great content to offer to their viewers regardless of the screen they're using to educate, inform, entertain themselves!
