THE KEYS TO SHOOTING GREENSCREEN
Published: August 6, 2010

With keying software more advanced and stable than ever before, effects pros working with green, blue or other color screens can now focus on the job at hand. Lighting is still important, of course, but pros realize they can get away with a little more thanks to today’s tools.
GREENSCREEN & DSLR CAMERAS
Published: July 13, 2010

There certainly is excitement surrounding the DSLR format, but we can’t forget that these cameras were a happy accident in terms of their professional use. While pros are taking advantage of their benefits, there are shortcomings for which they have to find workarounds.

NAB 2010 - LAS VEGAS
Published: May 7, 2010

I paid $4.21 for a tube of ChapStick at my hotel gift shop… and don’t tell the girl at the register, but I would have paid more. I have come to realize that at NAB, lip balm, breath mints and water are like cigarettes in prison — invaluable, hence my NAB 2011 plan: Randi’s “Things You Should Have Remembered” booth that will sell the aforementioned items, plus moisturizer and antibacterial lotion. I’ll make millions! Millions I say!

Published: April 1, 2010

In mid-March, HP held a press event in Los Angeles introducing some new workstations, including a mighty computer in a little package — the Z200 Small Form Factor. (See our news section for details on this one.)

LONDON — James Herbert is director Guy Ritchie’s go-to editor. The two have worked together on, among other things, the films Revolver, RocknRolla and now Sherlock Holmes. Over the years they have developed a sort of shorthand that helps keep the process a pleasant and productive one. Here, Herbert shares his experience editing Sherlock Holmes.
THINK GREEN
Published: February 2, 2010

In recent years I have found ways to reduce my family’s carbon footprint: every piece of paper and box gets sorted, along with plastic cups, cans and bottles. We use reusable water bottles, bring canvas bags to the market and we don’t let the water run while brushing teeth. It’s not much, but I have to believe it helps in some way, and it teaches my kids how to be more conscious of their actions for the greater good.
