Chris Sullivan on His Debut Album The Odd Sea
By: Bob Gillen on Aug 12, 2013 at 7:55:22 am

Singer/songwriter Chris Sullivan recently released The Odd Sea, his debut album best described as vagabond blues folk. Sullivan connected with us about the storytelling element of his songs. The Filmmaker Lifestyle: Songwriters are storytellers and poets as much as any other writers. Do you feel a need to tell a story with each song, to create a living character in music? Do you ever approach each song as a “four-minute movie,” a story with a beginning, a middle, and an end? Chris Sullivan: I frequently approach songs from the perspective of a character outside of myself. I find it more...

Successes & Failures in Editing with a Wacom Pen Tablet
By: Kylee Wall on Aug 9, 2013 at 4:13:48 pm

USE THE PEN. From the moment I stepped in the door at BCM, that's all I heard from Walter. It was like a nerdier version of Obi Wan Kenobi. (Is that possible?) My work station is equipped with a Wacom Intuos 4 (I think) -- which is very nice, both the product and the fact it was sitting there. (And note to Walter: it was LIKE Obi Wan, I didn't say you actually ARE Obi Wan.) But man, talk about tablet-challenged.

Using the Right White Balance Preset
By: Richard Harrington on Jul 18, 2013 at 8:20:00 pm

The White Balance setting on your camera is one of the most important choices to make. This control can be used to neutralize any color cast in an image and to set the overall color (or tone) for the scene. White is most often used as a reference point because it is the perfect blend of all the color channels. While many are perfectly content to shoot in an Auto White Balance setting this can lead to extra work in post. Changes in lighting conditions (such as clouds passing overhead) can create variations in skin tones or subjects that just...
