Documentary Editors Rock 'Filmage' Post Production with AJA Io XT


Documentary Editors Rock 'Filmage' Post Production with AJA Io XT
"Filmage: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL" began as a passion project for a group of creatives working at Dallas-based post house CharlieUniformTango (CUT), and quickly evolved into a full-fledged documentary production. Within four years, the film's directors Deedle LaCour and Matt Riggle, along with editors Justin Wilson and James Rayburn, had traveled the world, combining a love for old-school punk music with filmmaking chops to deliver an indie flick that recounts the history and influence of punk rock legends the Descendents. The film features a compilation of present-day interviews with band members and industry influencers, fan video submissions and archived tour media. Editorial for the film required a portable and flexible workflow, for which Rayburn turned to AJA's Io XT Thunderbolt-enabled professional video device for on-the-go I/O. Read More

Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Grants a Wish
In making an independent film about the film industry and the journey of pursuing the Hollywood dream, the last thing Director Jared Cohn wanted was for it to look fake. Especially when the film was one of the most meaningful projects he had ever created. "The film looks almost like a documentary, but it's completely narrative and scripted. Since I made it on my own dime, the only way I was able to achieve such as realistic look was with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera," said Jared. "The camera's dynamic range provided such an authentic look at an affordable price, and many people think it's a documentary because it looks so realistic. Read More

 Sony Gives Lens-Style Cameras Another Go
Remember Sony's lens-style cameras — the snap-on ones that look like lenses and can be mounted on your smartphone? Sony didn't abandon the concept it launched in September 2013; rather, it just added two more cameras to its lineup. The two new models are the ILCE-QX1 and the DSC-QX30. The QX1 has the same 20.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor as Sony's mirror-less interchangeable-lens cameras. Read More

 Sony Unveils The QX1 And QX30 Lens And Camera Sensor Add-Ons For Smartphones
Sony has indeed added to its lineup of camera tech add-ons for smartphone devices today, with not one, but two new devices in the QX series of accessories. The QX1 and QX30 join the existing QX10 and QX100, with the QX1 offering interchangeable lenses as revealed in a leak earlier, and the QX30 offering 30x optical zoom. The two new Sony accessories both offer ways to improve your photo quality on smartphones, but the QX1 really steps things up by offering a bayonet mount that works with existing E-mount and A-mount interchangeable lenses. It also includes a shooting accessory kit that lets users set up the lens for selfies, and for getting tough high and low angle shots.
