DIRECTING A 'GHOST'
Published: February 1, 2007

Prior to Ghost Rider, Mark Steven Johnson had directed a film that featured visual effects, Daredevil, but nothing really prepared him for the amount of work that goes into helming a movie whose main character appears 1/3 of the time as CG and whose total effects shots are over 600.
NEW YEAR, NEW RESOLUTIONS
Published: January 2, 2007

Well, it’s that time again. A new year full of promise and possibilities. You can almost hear the diets being started and the cigarettes being stamped out. I love this time of year, and not just because it offers me a phone-it-in way to do my editor’s letter. Oh, did I type that out loud?
HOLD THE PHONE...AND PDA

It's December, and that means it's time again for our yearly outlook issue. We again polled some industry experts on what they feel are the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of their particular market segment.
COLOR CORRECTION FOR THE MASSES
Published: November 6, 2006

Silicon Color, makers of the well-respected Mac-based color grading software FinalTouch, recently announced that it was purchased by Apple. When I contacted Apple about their intentions, they pointed me to the statement on the Silicon Color Website (www.siliconcolor.com), which says that all intellectual property and technology was sold to Apple, and that maintenance agreements will be honored by Apple until they expire. As of press time, that is the only official statement available.

WHAT I LEARNED AT IBC
Published: October 16, 2006

During my trip to IBC in Amsterdam last month, I learned some interesting life lessons: one, the domestically over-priced Heineken is the Budweiser of Holland; two, a “fanny pack” means something COMPLETELY different in the United Kingdom; and, three, the English are infinitely amused that anyone would actually name their daughter Randi.

SCRUBBING IN FOR HD?
Published: September 8, 2006

If you watch the offbeat NBC sitcom Scrubs, you know they like to do things just a little bit different than the rest, and the way they capture and post is no exception.
HERE A STUDIO, THERE A STUDIO...
Published: August 11, 2006

…everywhere a studio, studio. Ok, yes, I have young children and there is constantly a nursery rhyme or Barney song playing in my head, but by dumb luck this one happens to be appropriate. Usually, we’ll hear about a new studio popping up every week or two, but today I received news from four new businesses in a 24-hour span. 
A FOCUS ON INDIES
Published: July 6, 2006

For many, the first time they noticed Focus Features, the art house division of Universal Pictures, was with the release of successful films like Lost in Translation, Brokeback Mountain and The Constant Gardner. But this studio, operating since ‘02, has many more “little-big” films on the way, such Woody Allen’s Scoop and Hollywoodland, with Ben Affleck and Adrien Brody.
AMAZING SUPER POWERS

Super powers. Gift or curse? Depends on the power.

NAB '06: A LOOK BACK
Published: May 10, 2006

Ahh, Vegas in April. How I love thee. There really is no city better suited for a trade show. No matter what time you are done working, there is always something to do. And rarely do you have to wait for a cab.
