Hello there! Here are 3 different angles of the spot that I need to light. Just to give you guys an idea:
I just wrote a great article with our experts weighing in on the new developments from WWDC 2012. Check it out and share your opinion. Anyone out there using a Thunderbolt Video interface yet?
Looking forward to seeing what everyone has to say about this one.
GearSprout is announcing our first piece of video cleaning software: SproutConverter. This OS X 10.6+ application is designed to clean and remove video noise, video distortion, blank spaces, static, and user defined frames from video files. If there are any blank or distorted frames in a video, existing video editing software requires that you manually remove them. This process requires repetition involving manual search and removal.
I am pretty new to production video, and I am wondering if there is a way to set up 5-10 cameras for recording without having each camera independently record? Instead of having 5-10 flip video camcorders set up (around $200 each), is there a better way? I am looking for the video only feed to record on a laptop or other recording device, and I don't need each camera to independently record, like all consumer video cameras do. I hope that makes sense.

Newbie here! Is it okay to have a combination of Tungsten key light (softbox) and daylight as a fill on interview shoots? I did a test earlier and tried using an LED light as fill but the color did not match (it has a greenish tint.) I shot the video and there was daylight coming through a window but it was diffused somehow so it was not as strong. I have a lamp that was on during the interview that served as my background light. So.. back to my question... is it okay to do this? Is there a rule for this?
I am shooting my third music video & just want to know if anyone would share some tips/wisdom. Its a 3 person easy rock band. The video will only be the band members on an empty sound stage. Any advice or input would be great.
I've been seeing a number of questions in the forum from members who are taking on paying gigs but obviously lack considerable technical skill and working experience. Just for my own curiosity, I dug around to find information on a reasonable time-frame for going from hobbyist to professional. The miniscule amount of info I found wasn't practical or all that informative for that matter. (Before I go on, any of you who write articles for VM, I'd seriously appreciate you not lifting my post topic for an article and not giving me any credit. It happened once before and I let it go.
Hello there! Hope everyone is doing well! I've been reading a lot of posts here and I have certainly learned a lot!I have a client meeting coming up in two weeks and I just want to get some advice from some seasoned videographer/pros out here. This newbie here would appreciate it a lot! :)
To give you guys an idea, here's an overview of the project:
1. Interview 3-5 people and ask them a series of questions like what they do and why they chose this business center (the client).
