2014 Adventures - Part One: Brrrrrrr
By: Mike Cohen on Aug 28, 2014 at 9:25:25 pm

Thus begins a multi-part recap of the past 18 months of my professional life, which has been, needless to say, quite a ride. Quick rewind to January of last year. Assignment: Michigan. Temperature: Frigid. I had been to Grand Rapids once before, in April. January travel to this region should be banned by the FAA! I arrived at about 1pm at the Gerald Ford International Airport. This is a small but very modern airport. The roadway outside the terminal, leading to the attached rental car garage, is covered by a huge canopy. This particular day it was sunny but chilly,...

LTFS and Incompatible standalone and library tape Formats
By: Tim Jones on Aug 26, 2014 at 2:41:51 pm

I've been sitting on this for a while since we uncovered the issue, but there have been no updates in the LTFS world concerning tapes formatted in a standalone drive and those formatted using a library-based solution. Therefore, I'm sharing with you folks. There is a serious compatibility problem between LTFS tapes created in a standalone tape drive and those created in a tape library. A number of users have reported both formatting and mounting issues when moving from a standalone environment to a library-based environment. We dug into the source code (it is open source, after all) and found...


My hopes for IBC this year and a great Labor Day offer from Small Tree
By: Steve Modica on Aug 26, 2014 at 9:04:53 am

I’m heading out to IBC and there are a number of things I hope to see there. Of course, I’ve got customers asking me about SSDs, and engineers working on 40Gb Ethernet and people want to bring it all together. Really, what’s the hold up here? My short wish list: 3.5” Server Chassis (8, 16, 24) with 12Gb SAS expanders onboard 2.5” Server Chassis (12 and 24) with 12Gb SAS expanders onboard Balanced 40Gb switches that can legitimately aggregate 16 or 24 10Gb ports into 4 or 6 40Gb ports 4TB or larger SSDs that can handle enterprise workloads but...


Actor/Producer Sinead O’Riordan
By: Bob Gillen on Aug 21, 2014 at 9:49:45 am

ORion Productions founder Sinéad O’Riordan: “The lack of strong female roles and the hugely competitive nature of the industry inspired me to establish my own production company.” O’Riordan, a Dublin-based actor and producer, works in both theater and film. She recently produced and acted in the Irish tour of playwright William Mastrosimone’s The Woolgatherer and starred in the 2013 indie film The Bible Basher. O’Riordan comments on acting for stage and for film. “Really I would approach both the exact same,” she says, “and apply the same techniques for both. Once I am given a script, be it a theatre...

Data choke points and a cautionary tale
By: Steve Modica on Aug 11, 2014 at 12:47:59 pm

During a normal week, I help a lot of customers with performance issues. Some of the most common complaints I hear include: “I bought a new 10Gb card so I could connect my Macs together, but when I drag files over, it doesn’t go any faster.” “I upgraded the memory in my system because Final Cut was running slow, but it didn’t seem to help very much.” “I bought a faster Mac so it would run my NLE more smoothly, but it actually seems worse than before.” All of these things have something in common. Money was spent on performance,...

If you have a Final Cut, Adobe Premiere or Avid group and are interested in hearing about storage futures, Small Tree's new products, 40Gb Ethernet, or anything else I might know something about, let me know and I'll plan to come visit. Maybe I'll even give away a couple SANLink 10Gb Ethernet devices. Steve Modica...


10Gb and SMB3 really rocks
By: Steve Modica on Jul 30, 2014 at 3:04:19 pm

We got RSS working on our 10Gb cards a few days ago. This is a feature that splits up data coming into the card into multiple queues. Then we can let different CPUS handle pulling in that data and passing it up the stack. We found what we figured we'd find: When we setup multiple streams, we see data in multiple queues. We see more cpus involved in the work, and things go a lot faster. What surprised us was how great this made SAMBA. When we tested SMB3 with Yosemite, we were able to hit line rate (10Gb/sec) between...

Video Collaboration Tools: DaVinci Resolve
By: Stu Brown on Jul 28, 2014 at 2:42:39 pm

Last Saturday morning, I had the pleasure of visiting Neil Smith, CEO of LumaForge and Marketing Manager, Kahlani Leon, for a presentation of some new video collaboration tools. Neil is not just another ordinary video reseller. He has a background in digital computing that spans decades, having sold the famous Cray computers to the US Government. As a major player within the industry since that time, Neil has a unique perspective on identifying trends, and has managed to assemble his own hardware which is extremely compatible and robust when it comes to hosting today's popular video editing software.

How Kevin Spacey Helped Me Get Started In Editing
By: Kylee Peña on Jul 23, 2014 at 7:31:14 pm

Last weekend I was bingeing on House of Cards (as you do) and after one particularly riveting episode where blank and blank blank-out and they all blank (spoilers/adult situations) I finally noticed a familiar logo: Trigger Street Productions, Kevin Spacey's production company. Not that it's terribly widely known I guess, but the logo is burned into my brain (a folder within a folder within a folder from years ago, but it was there.) In 2002, Kevin Spacey started a website called Trigger Street Productions (now called Trigger Street Labs ) for unrepresented writers and filmmakers. It was pretty phenomenal at...


Sound Decisions: A Properly Designed Mixing Room Makes All The Difference
By: walter biscardi on Jul 21, 2014 at 9:05:21 am

At Biscardi Creative Media, we understand the importance of great audio. To that end, we had our Rialto mixing theater designed specifically for quality sound design. The Rialto features a ProTools HD Native 5.1 system, SPL 5.1/stereo monitor controller, Genelec audio monitors and subwoofer, an 8 foot projection screen– and sound designers love working from it. One sound guy you’ll frequently find at BCM these days is Michael Cardillo, a veteran audio engineer in the Atlanta area. After many years as a sound designer at Crawford Communications, Michael went freelance in 2007 and spends his time working on all manner...

Actor/Playwright Laoisa Sexton
By: Bob Gillen on Jul 10, 2014 at 2:13:26 pm

“The whole female subject matter, female sexuality in an Irish film is untried territory… but that’s exciting to me to do something new,” says actor and playwright Laoisa Sexton of her debut play For Love. The play was staged off-Broadway by the Irish Repertory Theater in 2013. Laoisa (pronounced Lee-sha) Sexton has written the screenplay for her stage play, and is now working to shoot it in Ireland. “I am working with the producer Paul Heller. He was the producer of Withnail and I, Harold and Maude, amongst others, and some of my favorite films. It is a big dream...

10.1.2 Killed the Sparse Disk Star
By: John Davidson on Jun 30, 2014 at 4:31:17 pm

Hey gang, just wanted to give you a little update on what we're uncovering right now. The new update to FCPX 10.1.2 brought the ability to export xml of entire events. This is huge. The primary reason we have stuck with sparse disks in our office environment was so that we could quickly and easily maintain our huge and growing database of keyword tags and open those libraries on any system in our office. The way we worked, we would tag various network shows we work on because in our type of integrated promotion this information is critical to keep...

Filmmaker Jon Rosling’s “Five Pillars”
By: Bob Gillen on Jun 3, 2014 at 12:55:41 pm

In UK-based filmmaker Jon Rosling’s 2013 debut feature film Five Pillars, ex-soldier Darren returns from the war in Afghanistan to find himself disenfranchised by a society struggling to find its identity. Several critics commented that the societal topic is nothing new. I asked what impact he hoped to make with his film. Examining Themes About Life in England “Social realism films are not new in the UK, or any film market, to be honest,” says Rosling. “Some UK ones have made quite a few waves, Shane Meadows' This Is England being probably the most recent notable one.

Understanding the new Licensing Options of Avid Media Composer Software
By: Gary Bettan on May 22, 2014 at 11:17:24 am

At NAB2014 Avid announced that editors would now have several choices on how they can purchase Media Composer. Avid has now released the latest version (MC8.0) in all the new licensing options. Videoguys has put together a detailed FAQ with explainer videos to help you better understand your options. This blog post is intended as an overview to quickly help you understand the differences.

Writer/Filmmaker Tina Mabry
By: Bob Gillen on May 21, 2014 at 8:41:02 pm

“Audiences will always connect with universal themes explored through the eyes of real people,” says writer and filmmaker Tina Mabry. “That’s why it’s important that I make sure I remain honest to the humanity of the characters I create.” Tina Mabry heads up the Los Angeles-based production company Morgan’s Mark. Mabry and creative/business partners Morgan Stiff and Lee V. Stiff have structured Morgan’s Mark as an independent production company and editing facility that “focuses on producing films that emphasize character, and an editing facility that focuses on quality over quantity.” The company’s recent films include Brooklyn’s Bridge to Jordan, Mississippi...

Snapshots…your trashcan, on steroids
By: Steve Modica on May 19, 2014 at 8:42:53 am

I have to admit, as an old time UNIX guy that's been around inodes, fsck and corrupted filesystems all my life, snapshots sounded a little too good to be true. The word was long known to me. Customers would say, "I took a snapshot of that disk so I could upgrade it and revert if I screwed something up." It's just that imaging a disk would take hours. You'd start the copy and go home for the night. These new snapshots (like those supported by ZFS) were instantaneous. One click and you would “instantly” have a new copy of your...

This is a repost of an article from my website by my son, Royce. Your comments are welcome. With All the Computers, Can Hollywood Still Make Good Movies? By: Royce Brown This afternoon I was helping a few associates in their task of painting and building a movie set for a student project and inevitably the discussion fell to contemporary cinema and Hollywood marvels. One student mentioned (a director) that the recent film "The Artist" having won the Academy Award in its respective year, was in fact overrated. "A novelty film" he adequately put it.

Why indie? “Because Marvel DC already have enough help from their parent companies,” Lewin says. “Besides, in my mind, the really exciting stuff is coming out of the indie scene.” I asked Lewin how the core elements of story develop in the comic book genre. “I think the most important thing that writers should keep in mind when writing a comic,” says Lewin, “is that they can tell their story via not only words (the bubbles), but also working in conjunction with the illustrator visually.” READ MORE...

“I’m looking for complicated characters dealing with complicated issues.” So says director/writer David L. Johnson when asked what he looks for in a script. Recognize a Story That Moves “Personally,” Johnson says, “I have no preference. I think a lot of directors get hung up on fitting into a genre, but the greatest directors have stepped out of their box on occasion. Although these experiments don't always equate to box office success, I think it's important to learn how to recognize a story that moves and to see the potential of what you as a director can bring to that...

Unexpected Disk Failures in Large Arrays
By: Tim Jones on Apr 21, 2014 at 1:37:07 pm

My team has recently gotten calls for help from a number of our customers who have relatively new disk arrays (not ours) where the disks are failing unexpectedly. I'll leave brands out of this discussion, but the average age of most of these arrays is less than 12 months. In each case where more than one array is in play, the failure seems to be most noticed in arrays of 12 drives or more compared to small, 4 drive arrays. We've been in touch with a few disk manufacturers and, while none of them have specific answers, one thought keeps...

THE STRUGGLE FOR 4K Ultra HD By Stu Brown Tech geeks love it. Cinematographers embrace it. Television manufacturers and Internet delivery systems promote it. Post houses try to ignore it. American broadcasters reject it. Studios well, um, will always find a way to profit from it before it becomes commonplace. Like the motion picture business, the content production process, and the way we receive content is changing. In addition, our viewing habits are changing as well. There was talk in the mid-nineties about a new digitized, computerized upstart that had the potential to replace film. Enter digital video. We have...


Beyond the A's and B's of NAB
By: Kylee Peña on Apr 20, 2014 at 8:19:27 pm

There’s a whole big world out there in post-production-land, and most of it is pretty awesome. When I headed to the NAB Show last week(ish), part of my (personal) mission was to learn a little more about companies I didn’t know much about. Not just ask someone or read some Wikipedia stuff, but actually get to know what their missions are in post-production right now. I found that if I just went up to an industry peer and asked about Grass Valley, they’d give me a bit of “oh, they’re still around?” I mentioned to someone that I had just...

Hi everyone. It's been over a year since we last made one of these walk through videos. There are many reasons we took so long. The first is that we've been too dang busy. The second is that it's pretty much impossible to feature the professional work we actually do in one of these as there are so many legal issues involved. Using a broadcast of cable show as part of a tutorial would basically get me sued into oblivion. I love to share our workflow - but not that much! In order to provide you with great walk through...


Saying goodbye to a very special friend
By: Steve Modica on Apr 17, 2014 at 2:24:08 pm

Yesterday, I had to say goodbye to my dog Pete. He's been with me for almost 10 years and helped me raise my kids, chase all the deer away, and keep my house safe from squirrels and mailmen. He started feeling ill last week (while I was away at NAB) and this Friday, after several visits to the vet, we figured out it was a serious case of liver cancer, which was now causing significant pain. I thought I'd include my favorite picture of Pete, after falling asleep in the back of my truck on the way home from up...


What’s missing from today’s tech based editing

(this is a re-publish of a blog article I wrote for my personal web page) When I was starting out in post there was a clearly defined road one took to becoming an editor. These were the last few years of cutting film on a 35mm flatbed and my experience was limited to the commercial world verses the TV or feature world, but there were basic similarities to the path one took. To begin, lets jump forward to today. What does an assistant editor do in today’s computer based, digital editorial world? They have been relegated to the machine room...

With the show wrapping up and my body shutting down, I've been thinking about the stuff I've seen and people I've talked to at this year's show. This is the first year I've been covering the show in a full on press capacity (meaning sitting down with a number of vendors to get the story straight from them) and it's been great fun. It's also offered another perspective to me as a show attendee, maybe the clearest one about the industry overall I've had so far.  This is my third NAB. My first year was a learning experience where I...

NAB Day 1 - Throwbacks
By: Kylee Peña on Apr 8, 2014 at 8:15:23 am

The running gag on the show floor yesterday was a punchline to the effect of "AND we're releasing a camera!" If that kind of humor isn't your thing, then I can't really recommend you come to NAB for real. But even with all all the hooplah about new cameras and such, a couple things that stuck out to me today are throwbacks. The last few years in particular, I feel like there's been a push toward the nontraditional -- NLEs doing weird stuff that grumpy dudes hate, cameras turning into little boxes you can't actually handle, that kind of stuff....

So yeah, if you haven't guessed by the articles you might have seen with my name on them or the NAB show guide and all that, I'm here in Vegas for my third NAB. My brain hasn't really caught up to the idea yet, so I've spent much of the weekend walking around in a daze. I think it's starting to settle in though, and just in time.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

For tech nerds like me, A week at NAB is like a trip to Disney World for a Kid. It's one thing to read about what's new or watch a video stream from the show floor, but there is nothing like being there and putting your hands on new and up-coming products. As a lover of all things post-production, this will be my main focus. I want to find the ultimate cost-effective, efficient and bug-free tapeless workflows for television post-production. But I may have to settle for 2 out of 3. Good is not always cheap. There is more to...

Expert filmmaker builds online community

Pioneering filmmaker Ryan Connolly shares his passion for Adobe video software After graduating from film school, Ryan Connolly started out in a fairly typical fashion: creating music videos and commercials for local clients. He then went on to run the video studio at PC game company Alienware. But rather than continue following the typical path of many aspiring filmmakers, Connolly came up with the idea to create Film Riot, an online show that would let him share how-to filmmaking tips, get feedback on his work, and ultimately build an audience and a community. Today, his renegade style has earned him...

Going to the location a couple of times and looking at it with different light afforded me a strategy to approach the cliff.” Los Angeles-based action DP/camera operator Lawrence Ribeiro talks about shooting action, and about changes in the film industry.

5 Things You Need to Know about Shared Storage
By: Steve Modica on Mar 26, 2014 at 7:13:21 am

1. Shared storage is becoming the norm. It's not a "hack" anymore that's used to skirt licenses or the need for more disks. Vendors are beginning to embrace it more and more, and the storage software and protocols are adapting. There's never been a better time to implement a shared storage solution. 2. 10Gb is being adopted very quickly. Small Tree has 10Gb ports built into its TitaniumZ systems and vendors are releasing inexpensive 10GbaseT Thunderbolt PODS now. So it's time to get up to speed with 4K codecs and start using 10Gb Ethernet. 3. Don't skimp on storage space....

Brilliant emerging filmmaker uses Adobe Creative Cloud to edit weekly videos for popular online channel Extreme sports videos are a hit on YouTube, but few think about the behind the scenes work that it takes to capture these daring events on film and share them with the world. Devin Graham, aka Devin Super Tramp on YouTube, knows firsthand. To stay one step ahead of extreme sports enthusiasts, he has paddled for hours through waves with camera gear in a dry bag, hiked through jungles, and braved extreme temperatures to capture shots that may last only a few seconds.
