Indie Thriller Ingenium Goes to the Big Screen


Ingenium Gets Consistent Look from Assimilate's SCRATCH
Indie Thriller Ingenium Goes to the Big Screen
Indie thriller, Ingenium, was a labor of love from start to finish. Creativity and dedication to their craft make indie filmmakers tick, and this was fully demonstrated by brothers Steffen Hacker - director, editor, producer - and color grading artist, Peter Hacker, in the production of their new mystery feature. The film is teeming with the typical indie challenges: multiple cameras with differing formats, resolutions, and codecs; limited time and varying work schedules; and tight budget constraints. Like many an indie filmmaker, the Hacker brothers used every ounce of talent and ingenuity, as well as the right tools to bring their creative vision to the big screen. Here's how they made it happen. Read More

Grading and Finishing with Scratch v9
Grading and Finishing with Scratch v9
Last summer I filmed a short mockumentary spoofing a home improvement show where the homeowners are a family of zombies. We shot this in a weekend with a fairly minimal crew, working with a first time director. The camera we filmed with was mine, a Red Epic-W, and we filmed in 8K raw. Earlier this year after a lot of rounds of editing and screenings with test audiences, the editor sent me the final edit for color grading. At the time I was working on an IT contract in Seattle and commuting an hour each on the train, so I took my HP Spectre x360 and the hard drive and decided to get started while commuting. And I used the new Scratch v9 for grading and finishing. Read More

From the exponential growth of branded and independent content channels, to the explosion of esports and the emergence of social video, live streaming has evolved from a very niche application in the context of content production to a price-of-admission necessity for virtually every platform and provider with aspirations of multimedia supremacy.

Avoiding Footage Loss - Tactics for Storing and Recovering Data
Avoiding Footage Loss - Tactics for Storing and Recovering Data
Months of planning and work can go into a filmmaking scene. There's the set design, lighting, location scouting, and many other facets that all need to work in concert to pull off a great shoot. With all of the care and attention put into the production, there should be more directed towards the actual product. If the footage data is damaged, corrupted, or incomplete, then all of the efforts going into a shoot were wasted. High-end cameras are not foolproof, and occasionally errors occur that disrupt the data. And people are certainly not foolproof, as they sometimes make unwise decisions about storing and protecting data. Thankfully, there are some best practices production teams and filmmakers can follow to best protect valuable footage. Read More

Assimilate Scratch - A Workhorse in television and feature Post
Assimilate Scratch over the years has become a trusted tool, used for everything from on-set DIT to digital intermediate and finishing. One of the industries where scratch is being heavily used is VFX, and this is in part due to scratch's open support for xml scripting, which allows most VFX post houses to build their entire pipeline around scratch. One of such VFX houses is FuseFX, where I worked as a VFX editor for almost three years, working on various television shows such as The Blacklist, American Horror Story, Agents Of Shield, Luke Cage and feature films such as American Made, The Purge (Election Year).
