Pretty Pictures

A veritable Cambrian explosion of equipment at NAB 2014.

A new production camera from Black Magic Design, the URSA. 4K, though only 12 stops, but the sensor block is user upgradeable which will make for interesting times. Nice concept with functionality, and once the sensor and colour science catches the higher end competition…

The latest iteration of Resolve, V11 looks very nice, with complete edit functionality and multi monitor (finally!) added to it’s already fantastic colour suite.

AJA follow BMD’s footsteps into camera land with the CION. 4K, but only 12 stops again.

Atomos present their new 4K recorder in the Shogun.

Block, Light, Rehearse, Shoot

First time Directors and their story boards are soon parted. This great article mirrors my experiences. Dramatic scenes always work best when you capture what an actor actually does, without trying to constrain them within a story board created months earlier on your laptop.
