DIRECTOR'S CHAIR: STEVEN ESTEB - 'DIRTY POLITICS'
Published: September 2, 2008

BATON ROUGE, LA — Doesn't it feel like the 2008 presidential campaign has been going on forever? So who will it be? Obama or McCain? Well, after audiences get a look at Steven Esteb's Dirty Politics, they might swing their vote to Jimmy Breaux, the painfully and hilariously politically incorrect candidate featured in this satirical indie offering.
REAL-WORLD LESSONS
Published: September 2, 2008

Recently I had the pleasure to discuss editing with a 21-year-old college student who was interning at a local house in New York. He loved that his employer gave him the opportunity to do his own cut of a :30 spot they had just delivered to their client.
SOFTIMAGE SHIPS XSI 7
Published: August 8, 2008

LOS ANGELES - The release of Softimage|XSI 7 is “a huge leap forward” for the software, according to the company’s global PR manager Kevin G. Clark. Within the new version of this 3D animation software – now shipping - is the ICE (Interactive Creative Environment) platform which takes hand scripting out of the equation and adds a node-based model, making it easier for artists to make an effect themselves or to customize an effect more easily than before.


THE IMPORTANCE OF TRADE SHOWS
Published: August 4, 2008

With so much information available at our fingertips via the Web these days — from product updates to user forums — and travel costs through the roof, are trade shows becoming obsolete? While some might say yes, others believe it's hard to beat the advantages of a good old-fashioned trade show... foot pain and all.


DI: 'HANCOCK' DIRECTOR PETER BERG TURNS TO TECHNICOLOR
Published: July 18, 2008

CULVER CITY, CA — What if all you want to do is kick back with a few cold ones and watch TV, but fate has bigger plans? You see, fate wants you to be a superhero. So you begrudgingly save someone here and there, but your heart is not in it, the public knows it, and they're annoyed. You're only option is a public relations expert to turn things around. Such is the life of Will Smith in Sony Pictures' Hancock.
GREENSCREEN TECHNIQUES
Published: June 25, 2008

The art of greenscreen has become demystified in recent years thanks to the accessibility of professional tools at affordable prices. But access to good tools alone doesn't convey command of the nuances that working with a key demands. Angles, lighting and experience make all the difference.
GREENSCREEN: HD OR FILM?
Published: June 23, 2008

In this issue we discuss the challenges of going green, but we’re not talking about being environmentally friendly — although Post Magazine is all for that, of course! The green we are talking about can also be blue — the article (on page 24) is about shooting and compositing greenscreen.
A SIT DOWN WITH AVID'S NEW LEADERSHIP
Published: May 22, 2008

Neither Avid nor Apple exhibited at NAB this year, but Post did sit down in Las Vegas with Avid’s new CEO, Gary Greenfield, and new VP/GM, Kirk Arnold, to talk about Avid’s “new thinking,” and new editing products. They emphasized repeatedly that Avid’s resurgence would begin with listening to their customers. Obviously, this is where they feel Avid lost its footing in the first place.

A LOOK BACK AT NAB 2008
Published: April 30, 2008

With 1,650 exhibitors to visit, an estimated 105,259 attendees (down from 111,028 last year) descended on Las Vegas last month for the 2008 NAB show. I’m curious how many of those 105,259 attendees left the show with shin injuries incurred while walking the floor.
