Hillsong Church Handles Congregation Growth with Blackmagic Design
Hillsong Church Handles Congregation Growth with Blackmagic Design
Founded thirty years ago in Sydney, Australia by Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, Hillsong Church has grown rapidly over the years. The church is now comprised of more than a dozen locations in eleven countries across the globe. In Australia alone, more than 30,000 people attend services weekly. The days of a single preacher speaking from a wooden pulpit with only his voice are gone. 30,000 people each weekend want to feel part of the sermons, services and church family. One of the best ways to build and serve the growing congregations is to establish an amazing broadcast and AV infrastructure in each campus. Hillsong's requirements include HD broadcasts, live video switching, recording to DVDs and conversion of formats to meet its needs. Read More

Time Travel, Ham Sandwiches and the Pocket Cinema Camera and the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
Ham sandwiches are pretty much the same no matter where you are. But the same is not true when thinking about when you are. In the 1970s, it was Wonder Bread and two slices of ham. Maybe a slice of that weird orange cheese. But today? Well, which of the 10 types of organically grown bread would you like with your smoked, pepper or free range ham? If you are one of the two time travelers in Kanen Flowers's new series "18:20," the search for the normalcy of a simple ham sandwich, one of the running plot points in the series, is just one of the many reminders that everything changes when time traveling.

SXSW Premiere "Thank You a Lot" Tells a Story of Austin's Music Scene
SXSW Premiere
Austin, TX may be known as the live music capital of the world, but it's also home to a thriving video production and film industry that promotes and champions local talent, with members sourcing expertise from within the tight knit community. Austin doesn't just keep it weird; it also keeps it local, which is exactly what Writer/Director Matt Muir and Producer Chris Ohlson did with their feature film "Thank You a Lot." Not only was the film shot in Austin, but Matt is also a graduate of the University of Texas along with the film's DP, Harrison Witt, who teaches courses in advanced cinematography and film production at the university.

Rain or Shine, The University of Portland's Multimedia Team Gets the Shot with Blackmagic Design
Building a brand is important for any business regardless of the industry, and advertising and marketing campaigns are some of the main ways to do so. In addition to traditional methods, such as print ads and television commercials, today it's essential to leverage social media, especially when your target audience is one of the biggest consumers of the medium. The University of Portland was quick to realize this, and created its own in house multimedia team, in conjunction with its marketing department, which handles all television commercial, online video and social media marketing campaigns. Headed by photojournalist and videographer Jeff Kennel, what makes this team unique is that it produces high quality work just as good as many professional agencies and production companies, but at a fraction of the cost and twice the speed.

Content Insider #334 - Fast, Furious, 4K
Content Insider #334 - Fast, Furious, 4K
You can't help but love 4K video content it is beautiful after all but I like it for another reason...a business reason. Shooting 4K content takes talent. Handling the delicate post production work takes as much if not more talent. All of it - from beginning to end - takes storage, lots and lots of storage. The people who do all of this work on your entertainment are perfectionists and moved almost to paranoia to save every pixel, every byte. Nothing is discarded because there may come a time when they need that scene, that frame. And 4K requires four times the amount of storage...love it!!! Read More

And the Giraffe Takes Blackmagic Cinema Camera for a Ride in Music Video for
For 'And the Giraffe,' an indie rock band based in Nashville, TN, making music videos is a blast. They love to put a video story on top of the story they tell in their lyrics, and connect with more people in doing so. The video for the band's latest single, "Sorry," was shot while the bandmates rode bicycles around Los Angeles, and according to band member Nick Roberts, the video turned out better than they had hoped, was one of their most fun projects to date and couldn't have been done without the Blackmagic Cinema Camera.

Master Shots Author Christopher Kenworthy Returns to Filmmaking
Master Shots Author Christopher Kenworthy Returns to Filmmaking
Christopher Kenworthy almost gave up on filmmaking because of his frustration with the restrictions of big budget productions and the limitations of shooting with DSLRs. Instead of leaving filmmaking behind for good, however, he switched his focus from behind the camera to penning several books on the discipline, including the best selling Master Shots series, which provides filmmakers with the techniques to achieve complex shots on any budget. With his finger still on the pulse of the camera industry, Christopher was intrigued when he had the opportunity to test the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Little did he know that just weeks later, his passion for filmmaking would be reignited, and he would be directing films once again. Read More

For the King of All Media, a Birthday Bash Gets a Royal Production
When you're the King of All Media, your birthday party is a royal event. So when Howard Stern chose to celebrate his 60th Birthday Bash at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom-part of the Manhattan Center, located at 311 West 34th Street-on the night of January 31, an array of topnotch production staff went into action to ensure that everything ran smoothly. The crowd inside the Hammerstein Ballroom-and those listening to the live broadcast on SiriusXM Satellite Radio-were delighted with Howard, his cast of regulars, and a galaxy of guests ranging from Rob Zombie to George Takei, Jimmy Kimmel, The Black Keys, Joan Rivers, Jon Bon Jovi, Adam Levine and dozens more. Behind the scenes, the quality of the production was just as brilliant. Topping it all off, the production staff had only two days to pull it off. Read More
