Why Live Training Still Matters in the Internet Age
By: walter biscardi on Sep 26, 2013 at 2:44:20 pm

Never has so much information been so easily available to so many than today. Right here on this very site are literally MILLIONS of tidbits of information, nuggets of knowledge and full blown training products ready at a moment's notice. For the bulk of what we need to know in this industry, this information is invaluable.

But when it comes to the creative side of the industry, well that's better served in...

The Enterprise File Server In a Digital World
By: Matt Geier on Sep 25, 2013 at 9:07:41 am

Companies of every sort utilize file servers to provide central access to files and printers. But supporting a range of Mac, Windows, and web clients is not easy. File systems and network protocols for Windows, Mac, and web clients are complex, and difficult to integrate. Windows alternate data streams, Mac resource forks, file and record locking, Active Directory, LDAP, file system permissions, SMB/CIFS, AFP, HTTP, Windows, OS X, Sun Solaris, Linux, IBM AIX – a library of books has been written on these topics. In the world of media production, and other mission-critical environments such as newspapers, where you have...

Small Tree is now 10years old!
By: Steve Modica on Sep 24, 2013 at 11:08:41 am

Back in 2003, on September 24th, I drove up to St Paul, Minnesota and filed paperwork to make Small Tree a Minnesota LLC. When we started, there were 6 of us and I'm not sure we knew exactly what our plan was. I knew we wanted to write kernel drivers for "high end" networking stuff (like Intel's brand new 10Gb Ethernet cards). I didn't think much beyond that. I figured if we built it "they would come" (as the saying goes). I also needed a good excuse to buy one of the new G5 Power Macs (and make it tax...

Okay, fine. Premiere Pro CC is pretty good to me.
By: Kylee Wall on Sep 23, 2013 at 7:59:37 pm

Alright, I'll admit it. Premiere is pretty decent these days.  I know a lot of people say that. The Internet is filled with love letters to Adobe. I haven't really been among them, well, ever. I've almost always had bad experiences with Premiere, which I've documented a-plenty. Long story short (unless you go back and read my post where I lay it all out), Premiere was unstable as hell for me, Avid wasn't accessible (physically, I could never get in front of one) and being technically proficient in SOMETHING was important to me. So my senior year of college, I...

Live iPad Mix - classical Musicians and Club DJ

UK-based cinematographer Ben Cole, whom we interviewed a year or so ago, recently shot an innovative new viral ad for European retailer Carphone Warehouse. Cole, along with director Sid Wheeler, initially interviewed several classical musicians who were using new software that helps design an app for their phones/tablets. This, in turn, aids them in being better musicians. The instruments used were a cello, a French horn, and a flute. “No need for a human teacher nowadays,” says Cole. All you need are “… apps from tuning your instrument to scale teaching software that judges how well you play your scales...

Use a Field Monitor for Better Shots
By: Richard Harrington on Sep 14, 2013 at 6:29:00 pm

A common phrase among DSLR pros is that everything looks good on the back of the camera LCD. While intended as a joke, the phrase really means that it s hard to judge aspects of your shot like critical focus, color, and exposure using the LCD on the back of a DSLR camera. As these LCDs are generally very small, it can also be difficult for on-set clients and team members (like a focus puller) to clearly see what the camera is actually shooting. That s where field monitors come in. Over the past few years, lightweight field monitors offering...

It Ain’t Film or TV

As Mildred Lewis, co-creator of the web series Etiquette, says, “Good writing is good writing is good writing. Plot, character, setting, conflict, compelling ideas, engaging emotions all remain crucial.” That being said, the audience experiences a web series differently. “On the web,” Lewis continues, “you're writing for a viewer who is going to have a more intimate experience.
