For this Campaign, the Gear Needed to Be as Tough as the Environment 686 Technical Apparel has always been about providing innovative, fashionable outerwear and technical apparel inspired from the same Los Angeles street culture and mountain lifestyle that it was founded on. When cinematographer Ian Post was hired to shoot cinematography for the brand, he knew his gear needed to be as reliable, durable and resilient, as well as able to withstand the elements, as the outerwear he was shooting. Not only does Ian's camera have to work in such harsh conditions, but it also has to deliver stunning footage that captures the snowy landscape as well as highlights the star of the shoots, 686 outerwear.

At a macro level, Cloud was never really an IT opportunity and never should have been thought of that way. It was, and still is, a business opportunity. Whether it be the ability to lower costs, improve service delivery, speed up change, or add flexibility and scalability, Cloud has always been about greater business agility and productivity. With Cloud "a business and service delivery model" ahead of "the technology used to offer cloud services." At a micro level, of course Cloud is a great opportunity for internal IT organizations to deliver better IT services to their parent companies - so long as adoption is driven by the potential business benefits over the desire to use shiny new IT.

Jared Cohn Achieves Realistic Cinematic Look on "Wishing for a Dream" In making an independent film about the film industry and the journey of pursuing the Hollywood dream, the last thing Director Jared Cohn wanted was for it to look fake. Especially when the film was one of the most meaningful projects he had ever created. "The film looks almost like a documentary, but it's completely narrative and scripted. Since I made it on my own dime, the only way I was able to achieve such as realistic look was with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera," said Jared. "The camera's dynamic range provided such an authentic look at an affordable price, and many people think it's a documentary because it looks so realistic. Read More

You would get "Trent & Isabella." Read More

Shooting Indie Dystopia with Blackmagic Design For Ben Walter, it all started 20 years ago when he saw Disney's Sleeping Beauty. The pure princess and how she changes from a single prick of the finger and true love's kiss. That idea sat in his mind for years, and came to the surface in 2013 when he was working on his UCLA thesis film. Once through with college, the idea turned into a full length feature.

But a gloomy, frightening look at the other side of the coin. And that was the birth of the Benjamin Walter's "Pink Zone," with its dreamy and graphic images captured by Blackmagic Cinema Cameras and DaVinci Resolve. Read More
