Video in Business
Video in Business
To most people, "video" invokes the idea of entertainment. The latest blockbuster movie about some superhero or another, a favorite TV show that seems to go on forever such as MASH or more lately, something internet based on a file sharing service such as YouTube, Facebook or Vimeo, usually containing 60 seconds of badly shot video using a smartphone, no composition, little if any editing and garbled audio. Stereotyping? Sure! But it is the truth more often than not and may have turned you off one of the very best uses of video there is. To market your business. Read More

Recreating 300's Epic Cliff Jump Shot By Fractal Visuals

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

Lightworks from Editshare
Lightworks from Editshare
Over the last few years, we have been literally bombarded with video editing packages (NLEs) from all sides. The stalwarts that have been around seemingly for ever such as Adobe's Premiere Pro, Grass Valley EDIUS, AVID products, Final Cut from Apple and Vegas Pro are in that mix and classified as "pro" products, while offerings from Corel, Pinnacle, MAGIX and others have been more aimed at the consumer market. Among all of these, a program that has somewhat been bypassed is Lightworks - now up to version 14 and in its 25th year! Read More

Vegas Movie Studio Platinum
Vegas Movie Studio Platinum
The familiar light grey facade of the Vegas family has been changed to a black motif in Vegas Movie Studio Platinum (and I suspect this will flow through to Vegas Pro as well. All the kids are doing it!) that is not unattractive. In fact, the whole interface has been made over and somehow looks cleaner and more businesslike. Text descriptions and icons are sharp and clear and if there is any criticism, you may have to change your monitor's contrast a little as on my Dell 27 XPS All-in-One, the vertical lines in the timeline were quite faint. In the past if someone suggested you could get probably 85% of the power of Premiere and After Effects together in a package that sells for under a hundred bucks, you'd think they were barking mad and aiming to be the Pres of the USA perhaps!

DP Benjamin Gaskell Shoots the Latest Installment of the Witness Project Documentary Series with a Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K
In late 2015, Smock Media, a Venice Beach-based film and VR production company, and the Victims of Communism (VOC), a Washington, D.C.-based human rights organization, came together and started The Witness Project. Beginning with a two-episode pilot that told the tales of life in communist regimes, the Witness Project debuted at a screening at the Library of Congress and began the greater journey into the victims' stories and inherent strength. Building on that success, Smock Media and VOC decided to expand the series into an eight-episode arch for 2016, with even more slated for later years. DP Benjamin Gaskell was brought on to tackle the first episode of the second installment, which would set the tone for the rest of the documentary series. The episode focused on Anastasia Lin, Miss World Canada 2015 and 2016, and her story. Read More
