Rain or Shine, The University of Portland's Multimedia Team Gets the Shot with Blackmagic Design


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.

Pfister, Depp Reunite For Sci-fi 'Transcendence'
Pfister, Depp Reunite For Sci-fi 'Transcendence'
For more than a decade, cinematographer Wally Pfister brought director Christopher Nolan's cinematic visions to life. Now, he's the one calling the shots. His directorial debut, the new sci-fi mystery "Transcendence", has many elements of a Nolan blockbuster — eye-popping visual effects, a mind-bending story and an A-list lead in Johnny Depp. All of those things translate into high expectations for Pfister, who jokingly likens his newly christened director's seat to an "electric chair." In the film releasing Friday, the mind of Depp's terminally ill scientist, Will Caster, is uploaded into a computer after his death, spawning an eerily unruly machine. At the heart of the story is the disrupted relationship of Will and his wife, Evelyn, played by Rebecca Hall. Read More

Content Insider #331 - Power of Choice
NAB was even more lively this year because so many people were scrambling. Cable folks were bristling that they're still the gateway to the home TV. Rusting big iron producers in the Central Hall were saying how important they were. South Hall was totally busy with people who understood the industry is rapidly changing to OTT/IPTV and it was already 4K ready. Everyone wanted to control the consumer but he/she saw the fiber pipe to the home as a way out of paying for 100s of channels they never or hardly ever watched. More importantly people wanted their content on their terms at their times. Freedom of choice is something we all want...right? Read More

What do you do when you're about to jump out into the cold hard real world after a bunch of years of relaxed college? Tough question but a group of independent content creators got together and had one last intramural football game. The non-stop action, non-stop comedy earned a spot in this year's Tribeca/ESPN film festival. Not a bad way to start the serious phase of their lives. You'll never look at intramural football the same again! Read More

Content Insider #332 - Video Consistency
On the eve of NAB I just read where kids watch an average of 40 hours of TV a week and you wonder why they're numb from the neck down and dumb from the neck up! Most of the parents I know sharply restrict/monitor their kids viewing habits even though they (and the parents) want quality content everywhere. It will come but still don't think the super high quality 4K streaming media we'll get (program schedules are fading memories) will make make the zombies, vampires, werewolves any more interesting. But Cosmos that's a great series...can't wait to see how it ends. Read More

Display experts DisplayMate rate it the best smartphone screen ever. The Galaxy S5, like the S4, is an OLED display, the technology where Samsung leads the market.

Video: 'Frozen' Is Now The Most-successful Animated Movie Of All Time
Following its recent release in Japan, Disney's Frozen is now the highest-grossing animated movie of all time. Loosely based on Hans Christian Anderson’s The Snow Queen, Frozen came out in the US last November, and was the first non-Pixar 3D animation from Disney to win an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Its international run has been a massive success, however, as the past few months have seen Frozen become the top animated movie in 27 territories, grossing over $650 million in the process.

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.
