How about an occasional issue that focuses on more advanced equipment and techniques? I’ve been doing the Video thing since ’83 and finding that fewer and fewer articles appeal to my thirst for knowledge.
Thanks for taking the time to tell us what you are thinking KBVP.
We are definitely looking toward more advanced issues. We will also be covering a lot of HDV issues which is a bit more advanced.
Is there anything in particular you are looking for?
Thanks again, Morgan
THERE SHOULD BE MORE ADVANCED THINGS ON LIGHTING AND SOUND ETC. I LVOE THE ARTICLES BUT I FEEL LIKE THEY RE TOO AMATUER/ THANKS
For those of us that do some extreme video, how about getting some of the helmet cams and test those. Since we’re on the subject, I’m installing some hi-tech web cams on a fire look-out tower in a few days. Since I do the “extreme work”, I got volunteered to do this. It would be interesting to have some articles on the latest and greatest web video cameras. I know this isn’t a regular category, but video production work is always changing. In reality, Videomaker could be 10 times thicker and still not cover all the bases. Today, I’m taping a new kind of water canon that shreds vegitation that needs to be removed for fire control. A couple weeks ago, I was strapped into an ejection seat doing air-to-air work. I guess what I really need is a publication on “out of the box” video production.
Some articles on how videographers shoot some of these extreme videos would be a pleasant change. Just watch some of the wild mountain bike videos and you’ll see what I mean. My 16 year old is into extreme mountain biking, so I have see a few of these- awesome stuff!
after thinking on the subject of why “Videomaker does not include more advanced stuff?”I came up with 2 reasons which I feel are strong.
#1>Active video professionalls are busy making money in that profession and don’t necessarilly have the time to write articles or explain in detail why they do what they do.
#2>The magazine must appeal to the random person passing by the newstand who is interested in video, but has no experience whatsoever. Some magazines especially some computer magazines have become “advanced” over the years, and have in turn made the casual magazine buyer un-interested in the above average knowledge and language of the advanced content.
I’m now off the soapbox——————>
Nice, March 2006 issue has an article on extreme video with “helmet Cams”. One of the equipment specialists in this field is Viosport: http://www.viosport.com The “Adventure Cam III” is a 500 line res camera with interchangeable lens and filters. I’ve used these cameras on jets, ATVs, aerobatic planes, hang gliders, and extreme downhill mountain bikes. So far, I am very pleased with the quality of the finished product.
For those wanting to get into this type of production, read the article. Once you have done some of this “helmet cam/point of view”, you’ll want more- it’s really cool!
