Rain or Shine, The University of Portland's Multimedia Team Gets the Shot with Blackmagic Design
Building a brand is important for any business regardless of the industry, and advertising and marketing campaigns are some of the main ways to do so. In addition to traditional methods, such as print ads and television commercials, today it's essential to leverage social media, especially when your target audience is one of the biggest consumers of the medium. The University of Portland was quick to realize this, and created its own in house multimedia team, in conjunction with its marketing department, which handles all television commercial, online video and social media marketing campaigns. Headed by photojournalist and videographer Jeff Kennel, what makes this team unique is that it produces high quality work just as good as many professional agencies and production companies, but at a fraction of the cost and twice the speed. ...Read More »

Content Insider #334 - Fast, Furious, 4K
You can't help but love 4K video content it is beautiful after all but I like it for another reason...a business reason. Shooting 4K content takes talent. Handling the delicate post production work takes as much if not more talent. All of it - from beginning to end - takes storage, lots and lots of storage. The people who do all of this work on your entertainment are perfectionists and moved almost to paranoia to save every pixel, every byte. Nothing is discarded because there may come a time when they need that scene, that frame. And 4K requires four times the amount of storage...love it!!! ...Read More »

Content Insider #331 - Power of Choice
NAB was even more lively this year because so many people were scrambling. Cable folks were bristling that they're still the gateway to the home TV. Rusting big iron producers in the Central Hall were saying how important they were. South Hall was totally busy with people who understood the industry is rapidly changing to OTT/IPTV and it was already 4K ready. Everyone wanted to control the consumer but he/she saw the fiber pipe to the home as a way out of paying for 100s of channels they never or hardly ever watched. More importantly people wanted their content on their terms at their times. Freedom of choice is something we all want...right? ...Read More »

Master Shots Author Christopher Kenworthy Returns to Filmmaking
Christopher Kenworthy almost gave up on filmmaking because of his frustration with the restrictions of big budget productions and the limitations of shooting with DSLRs. Instead of leaving filmmaking behind for good, however, he switched his focus from behind the camera to penning several books on the discipline, including the best selling Master Shots series, which provides filmmakers with the techniques to achieve complex shots on any budget. With his finger still on the pulse of the camera industry, Christopher was intrigued when he had the opportunity to test the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Little did he know that just weeks later, his passion for filmmaking would be reignited, and he would be directing films once again. ...Read More »

Content Insider #328 - Beauty to Behold
Ok Gravity didn't sweep the Oscars but the intense beauty of the film for anyone who saw it was amazing. Millenials liked it even more because they are very particular about the content they watch, enjoy and share. When NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) comes up we'll see the execution side of CES...getting content ready for you to view. The show will be packed with 4K content development/production/delivery tools. Ok so your cable company can't handle the delivery but there are ways around those folks and more and more people globally are making the change for the better. ...Read More »

New Music Video from Seattle's Iska Dhaaf
Iska Dhaaf is a Seattle based musical duo featuring guitarist/vocalist Nathan Quiroga and drummer/keyboardist Benjamin Verdoes. The band, whose name translates roughly to the Somali term for "let it go," is releasing its debut album on March 11. In advance of this album, entitled "Even the Sun Will Burn", Iska Dhaaf has released a new music video for the record's first single, "Everybody Knows." The video is based on 1960s USO shows, drawing inspiration from both the iconic Playboy bunny scene from "Apocalypse Now" and authentic Bob Hope Vietnam War USO tours. The video even features cameos by other Seattle musicians, including famed Seattle rapper Macklemore, channeling Bob Hope himself. Directed in Stanwood, Washington by Tristan Seniuk, the video was shot by DoP A.J. Rickert-Epstein and Stephan Gray on two Blackmagic Cinema Cameras (MFT) and was colored on DaVinci Resolve. ...Read More »

AJA KONA LHe Plus and AJA Control Room Drive Capitol Television Broadcasts
Eight Sony HDC-P1 HD cameras and three Sony BRCH900 robotic cameras send feeds to a Ross Video Carbonite production switcher and through a Ross Video router, where it's offloaded to any one of five playback and record servers, which are outfitted with AJA KONA LHe Plus I/O cards and AJA Control Room software. The SDI signal is then sent to the KONA LHe card within and back through the router, and all converted or compressed data is stored on a custom-built 36 TB RAID system. Telestream's Episode Engine software converts the DVCPro HD output of the KONA cards to H.264 or MPEG-2 for the on-air server. Material is on LTO tape. SAN sharing program Metasan allows all five playback and control servers to communicate with the storage. A sixth server houses the RAID. ...Read More »
