Editing 4K Video on Surface Pro with Sony Vegas
A few weeks ago I showed that a Microsoft Surface 3 could successfully run a full on non-linear video editor using Sony Vegas 13 Pro as the host program. But I wanted to see how the 'experience' of using the Surface Pro was, that is in use, how it would fare and was it actually usable as against simply capable? To start with, I really threw a challenge at it, loading up some 4K footage shot from Panasonic's HC-X1000 pro camera. The footage was ingested with no fuss and throwing it on the timeline caused no protests from either Vegas or the Surface. ...Read More »

Surprising Experiences with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
By Matthew Williams / Director of Photography

When writer/director Deep Williams (no relation) found me through my work as DOP on "American Pastime" (Warner Brothers/2008), he was looking for a specific look and feel for his upcoming short film project, "The Sac Fly." He liked the feel of the imagery created for "American Pastime," where the images play a big part in creating the mood and help tell the undercurrents of the story. His pitch had me from the beginning-a dramatic story of racial inequality, told with black and white imagery. The issue became not one of "can I" or "will I" do it, as I was obviously interested, but one of budget. ...Read More »
