3-DVD

[. . .] real-D. the new 3-D technology. MY BLOODY VALENTINE and the others. how the hell is that supposed to work on DVD? will it be the same, the same depth and all? The whole point is trying to lure people back to theaters. However, looking toward the future, you would need a specialized […]

Reel Time

Time for a new gig. Like everybody else. Been thinking about going freelance (shooter mostly, maybe cutter). Never needed to make a demo reel before. Any ideas on what to include? Only your best work. Quality is far more important than length; it’s not a career retrospective. If there’s a type of project you’re not […]

RED With Envy

A former professor sent me an email recently about a movie shoot, and mentioned that they would be using a “Red Camera.” What is this new camera, and what are your thoughts on it? Is it a good product, is it expensive, and/or worth the cost? RED. The short answer is that it’s a brand […]

Perceptive Pixel

In a time when we’re growing used to answering our cell phones by touching a screen, scrolling through picture galleries with a flick of the wrist, or enlarging them with an inverse pinching motion, it only makes sense that professional presenters do the same on a larger scale. Enter the Multi-Touch Collaboration Wall from Perceptive […]

Serifims and Arch-angles

[…] the rule-of-thumb for fonts was to use sans-serif, lest the serifs disappear in the laces, so to speak. Now that we are entering a world of de-interlaced, HD video, does the rule still apply? Ah, tricky one – a “yes, but”/”no, if.” It wasn’t that we couldn‘t use serifs, it’s just that their details […]

Portraits in Perspective

I’m teaching myself photography . . . [with a digital SLR] . . . and have been using family and friends for portrait practice. But the results so far are honestly not much better than those I created with my old point-n-shoot. What am I missing? There are several elements that make portraits effective. One […]

Flivvy Swiffle

I read awhile back that you said Flash was the most proliferated way to post online video content. How exactly do I do this? I use an app called Sorenson Squeeze* to create FLVs (and WMVs etc. in batches). It does multi-pass encoding that you won’t get by exporting through an editing app. Though if […]

. . . and you’ve wrote some things about ProTools on here before . . . I’m trying to get my [MIDI’d] Roland to come through in the session’s mixer so I dont’ have to run it out to my anologue mixer. And I’m going to need to record it soon anyway so that I […]

Vignettae

Just a little off the sides, please. I love me some vignettes, and incorporate them in some way on just about every graphic or video that crosses my transom. Most of the time it’s quite subtle, not just that templated “heavenly” or “dream sequence” white-corner effect. Let’s say you’re doing some work for a big […]

No Habla Técnico

As a multimedia producer, I constantly find myself playing the role of interpreter between the writers, designers and video folks in my company, and the technical people (IT, programmers, engineers). As such, I frequently encounter written communication that one group finds confusing to the other. Do you have any general tips and tricks for translating […]
