Content Insider #496 - VR Progress
VR film work - educational, documentary, entertainment and even marketing - has grown faster than the pioneers expected and it's only getting better and more exciting. All of the tools are getting better, faster, less expensive faster than industry forecasters predicted. Try even the basic (cheap) tools and you'll understand why once you watch it you want more. The good shooters and producers are delivering for the immersion hungry audience and learning that while it's great it doesn't meet everyone's needs the same way. The VR filmmakers are more than just creative in what they deliver, they're creative in how they get from concept to something you can don an HMD and enjoy. They're doing a lot of work-around activity to satisfy an increasingly sophisticated audience. ...Read More »

A Close Look at The Panasonic AG-UX90 Camera
For the last couple of weeks I have had a chance to test the new AG-UX90 camera from Panasonic. The lightweight camera is great for the photog on the go or for those doing documentary work. Should you grab this camera? I run down the great, and not so great features of the camera, in this review. The camera captures images on a 1-inch CMOS sensor, which ends up giving the user a better depth of field than other cameras you'll find in this price range. It isn't a full frame sensor, but then again, this camera isn't designed for DSLR fans, or those planning on shooting a feature film. ...Read More »

Bern Universitys Applied Sciences builds communication training stations and completes workflow with LMS, MAM and P5 Archive
Communication training is a core part of many industries as well as educational institutions. For customer contact, management, patient communication and many other scenarios, interactive training of these skills is needed. At Bern University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland, communication training of medical students with the goal of improving patient communication has been part of the curriculum for many years. Recently, a new infrastructure was built to streamline the trainings and their management. The solution was built around a centralised media asset management (MAM) server to allow for efficient workflow automation, including archiving. The video recording stations were built using highly reliable components and a web application was developed to allow remote control and tagging from iPads. Integration with existing planning tools was implemented to significantly reduce the management overhead of the training program. ...Read More »

Content Insider #494 - VR Film Work
Shooting, producing a VR film sounds terribly romantic. Heck filmmaking itself sounds like a whale of a lot of fun rubbing elbows with studio bigwigs, stars, living the fast life...what could be a better way of making a fab living? Ask most filmmakers and they'd probably say just about anything would be more "fun" because it's a lot of work juggling everything to educate, entertain your audience. VR film production is even worse because you're venturing into a totally new area where the viewer suddenly is part of the action and if you think actors are unpredictable viewers are worse. And there's no safety net because it's a new frontier. Hard, exciting but talented people are mastering the new arena for people to enjoy. ...Read More »

DP Vance Burberry Captures the Darkness and Light of Infidelity and Reconciliation
How does one go from working in theater in Australia, to working as a lighting designer for national U.S. rock concert tours, to working as an electrician on film sets, to becoming a successful DP having shot music videos for Guns N' Roses, Pearl Jam, Santana, Coldplay, Brad Paisley and more? For DP Vance Burberry, it was a natural progression. While Vance now shoots a variety of projects, including commercials, short films, feature films and documentaries, music videos hold a special place for him given his history in the music business. It's why he said yes, when his good friend and director Jessie Hill approached him to DP Australian alternative pop singer-songwriter and producer Jarryd James' music video for his song "1000x" ft. Broods. ...Read More »

Content Insider #493 - VR Filmmaking
After a bumpy start VR filmmaking is starting to move forward. The craftspersons have and continue to do a lot of testing and refinement to find out what works, what doesn't and why. Along the way they're getting a lot of help from camera, system and tool producers to deliver consumers can immerse themselves in and enjoy again and again. The costs are already coming down as more and more filmmakers work with the new medium. Momentum is building and it's needed if HMD and solution producers are to sell the volumes we need to deem it a success. The good stuff is really good. The rest...not so much. ...Read More »
