Content Insider #522 - Entertainment Unleashed
I've never tried binge viewing. If I miss a segment of a show I don't break into a cold sweat. When a series disappears from our home OTT viewing schedule I shrug my shoulders and move on to something else. When the commercials come on I watch (and memorize) 'em. I know, it's a little wierd. My daughter on the other hand can't get enough video. She'll watch something on the TV while catching up with her favorite online video(s) and check out the important stuff on her iPhone. And neither of us even scratch the surface of what's available to watch. No one can because there are only 24 hours in a day. Content production and consumption is changing so quickly and niche viewing is becoming more important than mass audience no matter which screen people use. ...Read More »

Innovation and Technology the Driving Force behind 3D Printing Advances
It seems as though 3D printing is benefiting from a number of advancements made in terms of innovation and technology, and is now taking on all new materials to print on. While traditional materials used for 3D printing have been restricted to plastic and metal, companies are now using organs, food, sand, ceramics, and so much more. In fact, some of the creations sound as though they are straight out of a science fiction movie, such as a 3D printed building or limb. ...Read More »

Recreating 300's Epic Cliff Jump Shot By Fractal Visuals
Few shots were more iconic than the epic cliff jump shot in Zack Snyder's 300 when Leonidas is traveling to meet with the Ephors. The seemingly unreachable ledge that may just be within grasp, given the proper motivation, stuck with director John Byron Hanby, IV and 10 years later he was lucky enough to be able to pay homage to 300 while Fractal Visuals was making a short film to Silversun Pickup's "Ragamuffin." Hanby walks us through the process of how his team at Fractal Visuals accomplished the epic jump. ...Read More »

Content Insider#520 - Furiouser
There was something for everyone at NAB the way things are moving so rapidly. So we'll break down our discussion over several weeks...it's easier that way. TV is still where most people watch their content they just do it in a bunch of different ways. And thanks to all the online services that are cropping up there is new stuff to watch. That's good news for filmmakers as long as they can establish the right relationships. Yes that's the tough part but not half as tough as being a cable company and watching your "this show at this time" numbers shrink. Fortunately they also own the last 100, last 10 feet to the house so they have to shift their business model. Things are changing so fast you really don't want to go to sleep tonight because when you wake up....BAM!!! ...Read More »

Content Insider #518 - Fast
There was a ton to see at this year's NAB and over the next few weeks we'll look at what most filmmakers are doing today - 4K and trending toward HDR. It was 4K that is now being used by almost every filmmaker to do feature length films, documentaries, episodic series and marketing content for use to describe new prroducts, their applications and provide service/support. And the great thing for filmmakers is that the marketplace has opened up beautifully for them with financial opportunities - follow the money - with Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, iTunes, Vimeo and yes the kids favorites YouTube and Facebook. Every content delivery channel - we'll cover the trend/opportunities soon - around the globe is looking for good and insanely great content to offer to their viewers regardless of the screen they're using to educate, inform, entertain themselves! ...Read More »

Content, Streaming Take Center Stage at NAB
When everything around you is in total chaos, the best thing you can do is change your tag line to give folks the feeling you're in front of the situation. NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) did that with style this year by highlighting the MET (Media & Entertainment Technology) effect. That way, everyone could explain how they met or were meeting the market's demands and needs. ...Read More »

Procore Users can print plans faster and smarter for much less!
Having printed sets of plans readily available for review is a necessity at building sites and in many other architecture, engineering and construction situations. Often, having plans on paper makes it easier for the project management team to see at a glance both the big picture and granular details in relation to the full project scheme. While tablets and other devices are fantastic in many situations, many industry professionals prefer to view schematics and read text on sharp, crisp printed plan ...Read More »

Content Insider #516 - Content View
The content industry is all aflutter as they head for Vegas and NAB because things are changing and content delivery, ad production, ad buying people aren't really sure if change is a good thing. Indie filmmakers are seeing new distribution opportunities (ways to get their stuff seen) and content consumers are finding new ways to make their voices heard. As someone recently said, FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google) has mucked up a perfectly good business model and allowed the viewer determine what he/she wants to watch when and where folks want to watch it...and what they don't want to watch! The challenge will be to see how the infrastructure industry handles 7 billion folks picking their own stuff. Maybe the abnormal heart rhythm will become the new normal. ...Read More »

Two Alone Together
In photography Bokeh is the out-of-focus parts of an image. It turns out it is also an excellent title of an indie film that Geoffrey Orthwein and Andrew Sullivan finished that's now in theatres.

And it just happens to have been shot in one of the most dramatic locations you can find - Iceland. And it all comes together beautifully. ...Read More »
