Ray Harryhausen dies....
By: Debra Kaufman on May 7, 2013 at 3:54:06 pm

I was saddened to learn today that Ray Harryhausen died. Harryhausen was not only a visual effects/stop motion pioneer but his work was the chief reason why many of today's leading lights in VFX got involved in the field. He was 92. He began his work in the early 1940s and was still being credited on projects well into the 21st Century. Of course the work that garnered so much awe among young people who made their way into VFX was The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad (1958), Mysterious Island (196!), Jason and the Argonauts (1963) and Clash of the Titans...

Storyboarding Artist Jean Claude De La Ronde
By: Bob Gillen on May 6, 2013 at 2:40:23 pm

We asked Montreal-based storyboard artist Jean Claude De La Ronde why storyboarding (pre-visualization) is so important to the filmmaking process? “The storyboards are the building blocks,” he says, “for ‘building a film or any video game cinematics or even TV advertisements from the ground up’. They are literally a crucial visual reference point to all the departments involved in the project.” Scene by Scene “A storyboard’s main purpose,” says De La Ronde, “is telling the story scene by scene and helping the director proceed with the multiple camera action sequence. It also helps to establish the proper camera angles to...

Hi all, Wanted to share my custom built editing workstation specs.

Where Are All My Ladies at NAB?

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?

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.
