'Bob and the Trees' Survives the Winter Thanks to Help from Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera


A 'Fly on the Wall' Approach to Filming
'Bob and the Trees' Survives the Winter Thanks to Help from Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Director Diego Ongaro knew he had his star when he first encountered Bob Tarasuk six years ago. "I was instantly attracted to his magnetic personality and captivating stories. Logging, his main line of work, became a fascination for me. I've often wondered about the history of the plank you buy at the lumberyard or the log you throw in the fireplace," explained Ongaro. "I'm captivated by the physical connection between the human body and the trees, the balance of power when it comes time to take a tree down and how small a man is compared to a giant oak. Yet, the paradox is that man usually wins." Read More

Orlando Public Library Takes Learning to Another Level with Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio
When many people think of libraries, they think of rows upon rows of books meticulously categorized and alphabetized.

Located in 26,000 square feet of space in the Orlando Public Library, the Melrose Center expands the role of the library by offering access to hardware, software, support and programming to inspire and invigorate creativity. And according to Anthony Torres, video production instructor at the Melrose Center, it's free of charge for library cardholders. Read More

White Paper:
IP Routing -
IP Routing -
At $12Bn a year the IP switch market is approximately 40 times bigger than the SDI router market. This scale drives an investment in R&D - with consequent rapid development and reduced costs - that is simply impossible in the broadcast business. Broadcasters can benefit from this economy of scale and high velocity development but only if they stay with mainstream equipment. Building specialist IP switches for broadcast is a bad idea - it cuts us off from the IT future. Read More

Editing 4K Video on Surface Pro with Sony Vegas
Editing 4K Video on Surface Pro with Sony Vegas
A few weeks ago I showed that a Microsoft Surface 3 could successfully run a full on non-linear video editor using Sony Vegas 13 Pro as the host program. But I wanted to see how the 'experience' of using the Surface Pro was, that is in use, how it would fare and was it actually usable as against simply capable? To start with, I really threw a challenge at it, loading up some 4K footage shot from Panasonic's HC-X1000 pro camera. The footage was ingested with no fuss and throwing it on the timeline caused no protests from either Vegas or the Surface. Read More

Surprising Experiences with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
Surprising Experiences with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
When writer/director Deep Williams (no relation) found me through my work as DOP on "American Pastime" (Warner Brothers/2008), he was looking for a specific look and feel for his upcoming short film project, "The Sac Fly." He liked the feel of the imagery created for "American Pastime," where the images play a big part in creating the mood and help tell the undercurrents of the story. His pitch had me from the beginning-a dramatic story of racial inequality, told with black and white imagery. The issue became not one of "can I" or "will I" do it, as I was obviously interested, but one of budget. Read More
