Consumers Like the Value of the Right OTT Entertainment
Content Insider #573 - Options
The content delivery folks have finally figured out the obvious. People don't want a big bundle of entertainment options. In fact they don't want options at all! Nope all you want is one option...your content. That could be tough but the more different your tastes from your neighbors, the more they're similar - musicals, comedy, drama, horror, documentary, immersive. The providers who are ahead of the game even know what you want before you do which is why you keep coming back again and again without thinking much about it. And the people in the know are ordering up more content from really good indie filmmakers in record volumes. People may not be able to describe great content but they know it when they see it and increasingly there's more really good stuff to see. Read More

Performance Arts and 3D&360VR Technology Join Forces to Give Viewers a Truly Immersive Experience in
Both Virtual Reality (VR) 360 and 3D have the power to engage audiences in the action and emotion of a film narrative or performance, but combine the two together and you can create a compelling and highly immersive experience that brings the audience directly into the "reality" of the scenes. This is exactly what film producers and directors Fred Beahm, www.fredbeahm.com, and Bogdan Darev, www.bogdandarev.com, have done in "The Cabiri: Anubis", a 3D/360VR film, now showing at the Seattle International Film Festival's (SIFF) VR Zone, www.siff.net, on May 18 through June 10.

When you have to put an actual warning message on your film's site telling people not to actually go to the places in the film, you know you are dealing with a truly scary horror film. Today we are speaking with Anthony Dones, a Miami based DP who has produced content for national television, corporate/commercial work, music videos and a now growing list of feature films. We reached out to him to discuss his recent work as cinematographer on "Devil's Tree, Rooted Evil" a horror film shot exclusively on the URSA Mini 4.6k. Read More

Stop, Collaborate and Listen: A Stop Motion Team Effort Brings
Led by Director and Writer Mark C. Smith, a dedicated group of filmmakers from Portland, OR created a visually stunning stop-motion short that follows two intrepid lemurs and their adventures in the sky. "Two Balloons," which originally wasn't conceived as stop motion, took four years to complete and had many twists and turns along the way. The team spent 16 months storyboarding, building sets and securing space in a warehouse, and then started shooting. Read More

Content Insider #570 - Awards, Profits
Hollywood lived for their award galas. You know the red carpet, beautiful people, breathtaking dresses, dashing dudes. The awards almost guaranteed good ticket sales. But with more companies focusing on the bottomline and the thousands of new streaming opportunities out there, there's more interest in getting recognition where it counts...in the bank. Sure indie filmmakers still attend the myriad of film festivals hoping for a prize but a check from someone who wants the content for their library is a little more important. Subscribers have an unquenchable thirst for new, original content. Even in the visual content industry it's all about supply and demand. And demand is great! Read More

Content Insider #568 - Pure Mission
Everyone who attended NAB this year was on a mission. A mission to create the best content, a mission to deliver content to the right audience, a mission to produce great films for device and theatre viewing. We'll start by discussing some of the best solutions for some of the creative people we know - shooters, production/post folks. And there was plenty of new products, new services, new features announced at the show to get a filmmakers motor running this year. And again SuperMeet was fun, insane and informative. Shoot it, produce it, store it. Then? Sell it. It's all good and getting better! Read More

Traveling Back to the 1950s with
The new hit show from Amy Sherman-Palladino ("Gilmore Girls") and Daniel Palladino ("Family Guy") takes viewers back to 1958 on the Upper West Side of Manhattan when life abruptly changes for Miriam "Midge" Maisel after her husband leaves her. Breaking the mold and trying stand-up comedy quickly lands Midge in jail, while also landing her a lot of laughs. Visual effects (VFX) veteran Lesley Robson-Foster ("Logan Lucky," "The Great Gatsby") joined the streaming series as VFX Supervisor. Robson-Foster and her team used a Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro digital film camera to shoot B roll, establishing shots and VFX plates for the series. Read More

Content Insider #562 - Taking Chances
I'm still trying to figure out fact from wishful thinking from the HPA Tech Retreat last week in Palm Desert, CA. It's not that easy. Why? We know a lot of EPs, DPs, DITs, editors, audio, creative people who work in the visual storytelling field. They all focus on delivering "the director's intent" to the content consumer even when that director is him or herself. They see things differently. They use the best, most advanced tools available to create something they can only see in their mind(s) and let the viewer interpret the message. Sometimes they bomb. Sometimes they hit the bullseye and people just get it. Most of the time the story works well enough to make them want to do it again. Are you willing to take those types of chances? Read More
