Choice Skinner on His Short Film
By: Bob Gillen on Apr 24, 2013 at 9:44:28 pm

Director and writer Choice Skinner talked to us about his award winning short film, about story, and writing for web series. Skinner’s short film A Second Thought recently screened at the SoHoFilmFest. Skinner shot the two-minute film on an iPhone during a two-hour ride on a city bus last year. Using the iPhone “…definitely opens some doors and makes it possible to be able to take an idea from conception and bring it to fruition.” THE FILM STORY Skinner’s story centers on a young man’s romantic chance encounter with a beautiful woman who shows interest in him during a bus...

Where Are All My Ladies at NAB?
By: Kylee Wall on Apr 22, 2013 at 12:34:57 pm

When I was in Vegas a couple weeks ago for the NAB Show, I went to the Hofbräuhaus, the traditionally crazy German restaurant based on the brewery of the same name in Munich which is loaded up with a menu of Deutschland beers and meats. The south lower hall at the convention center had more sausage than this place. And that's my crude and unladylike way of asking: where all the women at? Video post-production has been male-dominated for a long time. I don't need to be reminded of the big time Hollywood editors that have made their mark on...

The New Radial Filter in Lightroom 5
By: Richard Harrington on Apr 20, 2013 at 12:23:00 am

I'd like to share a few things from Adobe about the new Photoshop Lightroom Public Beta Radial Filter Busy backgrounds or bright colors can distract viewers from the focal point of an image. Photographers may try to reduce the distraction by cropping an image, but this can result in the loss of interesting detail and balance. Another approach to focusing the viewer s attention is to create a vignette effect, but this only works if a subject is in the center of an image. The Radial Gradient tool in Lightroom 5 now offers photographers more flexibility and control in how...

Usually one of the happiest days of the year for me is the day I'm driving back from NAB.

Day Four, but really day six. Day six of four. Whatever. Last day of NAB. Day negative one seems like a week and a half ago at least. DEEP THOUGHT: SMS. When I read NAB suggestions and tips and wrap-ups from people who have been coming to the show a long time, I rarely hear anything about communication. This is mind-boggling. How did you meet people? Did you just know where they are? Randomly bump into people and become life-long friends? Call on the PHONE? NAB is such a frenzy, how did you really take advantage of all these great...

Deep Thoughts from Vegas: Day Two

Blah blah written on day two posted on day three because INTERNETS SUCK. DEEP THOUGHT: "saving steps". In high school and college, I worked as a waitress. In the world of serving tables, we have a concept called "saving steps." That is, you're on your feet every shift, so you try your best to think about each trip around the dining room. You address the needs of multiple tables at once so you don't end up running back and forth and wearing yourself out unnecessarily. Servers who don't save their steps are referred to as noobs, and thusly looked down...

Wandering around the south hall today shortly after it opened, I found myself bouncing from person to person, many I knew and some I didn't. This has become somewhat expected by now -- you're in one room with a couple hundred people from a relatively small community (of which the Internet sub-community is even smaller), of course you're going to run into each other. That's part of the fun. However, today I had a bit...

Clearly tape has become a dead medium as I cruised through the Panasonic and Sony booths—not a video tape or VTR in sight. I had a brief look at the broadcast monitors from both companies. I am not a fan of Sony monitors, but they were showing a tech demo of 56 and 30 inch 4K OLED monitors. OK, I was impressed. I am hearing so much 4K chatter this year from cameras to post, that...
