Content Insider #519 - Content Value
I like free stuff as much as anyone and that's certainly true of video content. I even like the idea that someone is willing to underwrite my watching the content. Part of the reason is that I know most of the people who prepare that content for consumption are independent creatives not the "big company" - Netflix, Amazon, Sony, ABC, BBC, you name it. I'm glad TDO was told to go pound sand when he asked for a "little" ransom to give back Orange is the New Black. Hopefully others will say no to the hackers/cybercriminals so they know stealing may be fun but it's no way to make a living. It's time to protect your content...it's too valuable to pay for a second time! Read More

Content Insider #518 - Fast
There was a ton to see at this year's NAB and over the next few weeks we'll look at what most filmmakers are doing today - 4K and trending toward HDR. It was 4K that is now being used by almost every filmmaker to do feature length films, documentaries, episodic series and marketing content for use to describe new prroducts, their applications and provide service/support. And the great thing for filmmakers is that the marketplace has opened up beautifully for them with financial opportunities - follow the money - with Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, iTunes, Vimeo and yes the kids favorites YouTube and Facebook. Every content delivery channel - we'll cover the trend/opportunities soon - around the globe is looking for good and insanely great content to offer to their viewers regardless of the screen they're using to educate, inform, entertain themselves!

That way, everyone could explain how they met or were meeting the market's demands and needs. Read More

Content Insider #516 - Content View
The content industry is all aflutter as they head for Vegas and NAB because things are changing and content delivery, ad production, ad buying people aren't really sure if change is a good thing. Indie filmmakers are seeing new distribution opportunities (ways to get their stuff seen) and content consumers are finding new ways to make their voices heard. As someone recently said, FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google) has mucked up a perfectly good business model and allowed the viewer determine what he/she wants to watch when and where folks want to watch it...and what they don't want to watch! The challenge will be to see how the infrastructure industry handles 7 billion folks picking their own stuff. Maybe the abnormal heart rhythm will become the new normal. Read More

And it just happens to have been shot in one of the most dramatic locations you can find - Iceland. And it all comes together beautifully. Read More

Good things come in small packages could be the best way to describe the new Panasonic LUMIX DC-GX850 Micro Four Thirds (MFT) 4K camera. The size of an everyday compact and weighing a tiny 267g (sans lens), nonetheless this $800 (RRP) little beast is a powerhouse of a camera in both its stills format and as a capable (with ergonomic limitations) video camera.

The most common question we get when we point people to Doug Liman's VR series Invisible is how did they shoot and produce it. VR is finally becoming real and real attractive to indie filmmakers and viewers and people want to know. Well, we didn't know so we talked to the person who did all the work - Lewis Smithingham, 30 ninjas. Production and post of any film is the unglamorous part of the content industry but it is also what makes good video good video. Despite his hectic schedule Lewis took the time to discuss and explain the ins and outs of great VR shooting and production to give the viewer an experience that he/she won't soon forget.
