Film
For many backup singers, the tale is all too familiar. Despite earning spots singing backup for well known musical acts, so many talented background singers never quite receive the success and recognition they want. Using Blackmagic Design's Teranex 2D Processor and DaVinci Resolve color correction, Tremolo Productions has transformed the plight of the background singer into an awe inspiring documentary called "20 Feet From Stardom." The film focuses on several former backup singers whose voices were famous even if their names were not, including Darlene Love, Judith Hill, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, Táta Vega and Jo Lawry. In addition to interviews with these singers and with music legends like Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger and Stevie Wonder, the film includes a combination of archival footage from old television appearances and studio sessions, as well as live concert footage, new interviews and even footage from YouTube.

One Direction, Many Inputs, But No Bottlenecks
When One Direction, the British Irish boy band sensation, took on a rigorous tour covering the UK and Ireland, Europe, North America and Australasia, video production was of prime importance. The 120 date tour, which began in February, has seen the boy band sensation performing to sold out audiences including a six date sell out at the O2 Arena in London, so the action on stage had to be seen by everyone. This meant having multiple live relay IMAG (image-magnification) screens positioned around the stage and at strategic points in the auditorium. Throw in stage monitors pumping out graphics of cityscapes, sometimes mixed with the onstage performance, and you have a lot of video content to handle. Read More
