After watching Adobe's launch of CS5, trying to drown out all the 'buzz' about the 'iPad', 'Droid' and a bunch of other new whiz-bang products getting flung at us everyday, I saw this video about 'Motion Magazine Production'. The all Digital Magazine 'VIV' recently shot their issues' cover and a layout feature completely for the motion mag format. The production shot using live actors, props, and greenscreen with the RED EPIC. Though their project was primarily for the 'i' line of Apple products, I can fully see the potential for this type of work for other devices as well.
There have been a number of products coming out lately that deal with the number 1 issue concerning Flash Media in the field. Yeah, solid-state cards are great since you don't have to digitize the footage but when they fill up you have to take time to download them or buy a buttload of cards which can get expensive.
Videographer Paul Joy's video review of Nexto's latest answer to this problem answered a lot of my questions about the rig and as I move further into a solid-state workflow, I see this on my list of future purchases.
Would you know of any company or person that may be interested in comping a couple of compact HD video cameras for my Malaria expeditions?
In return I will advertise and promote them through the book/documentary/lecture series and website. Panasonic has already given us a Toughbook laptop for field editing.
I am married to an native Amazonian, have a private preserve there. In March I will be starting my expeditions to remote villages in the Peruvian Amazon to deliver Malaria nets to jungle children. 3,000 children die every day from Malaria.
Idon't know if this is the right place to ask these questions... I've been puzzled about wheter it's legal to buy and use software from the US and use it outside the US boarders e.g in Europe?
I've been thinking of buying Adobe Production Premium CS5 when it is comes out, God willing. The price in the US is about 1600$ whereas in Europe it's nearly 2400? which is about 3600$ currently. So it's a huge difference and I wouldn't want to spend so much extra for nothing.
I have just upgraded my pc to a Intel dual core with 2GB ram. But I still seem to get poor quality. I am using Magix Movie Edit Pro 12. What pc specs do I need for good quality production? I am talking about clear picture? Help!!!
For the unending hordes of newbies that come to the forums to ask 'What camera should I buy?' and for those of you who are seriously looking for camera / audio gear, here's a good video from Videopiea with tips to help you avoid getting fleeced when purchasing gear online.
Anyone know of any good resources for lighting techniques for a two person, three camera over-the-shoulder interview? I need to light both the interviewer, and the interviewee, and they will be facing each other. There would be one camera on each person, plus a third camera as a wide shot.
