Video in Business
To most people, "video" invokes the idea of entertainment. The latest blockbuster movie about some superhero or another, a favorite TV show that seems to go on forever such as MASH or more lately, something internet based on a file sharing service such as YouTube, Facebook or Vimeo, usually containing 60 seconds of badly shot video using a smartphone, no composition, little if any editing and garbled audio. Stereotyping? Sure! But it is the truth more often than not and may have turned you off one of the very best uses of video there is. To market your business. Read More

Content Insider #527 - Content Workload in the Cloud
Okay I admit it, I'm not a huge fan of the Cloud...not like Amazon, MS, Google, Facebook, IBM and the other service providers, heck even Adobe. It has its place and face it you can't do stuff without being in the cloud some of the time. The way filmmakers work today with specialists around the globe you're always sending parts somewhere. Business couldn't run without pretty fast, pretty reliable cloud communications. And yes this came to you via the cloud. Heck after you've completed your project and made a local backup, across town backup, outta state backup (you do that right?) then there's nothing like one more copy up there...just in case. But as Yoda said, "Choose wisely you must, young Padawan." Read More

Content Insider #523 - Fastest Race at NAB
Content Insider #523 - Fastest Race at NAB
Every corner of the entertainment ecosystem is changing and it could benefit everyone. Better, less expensive equipment. New channels of distribution for filmmakers and ravenous content consumers. A breath of fresh air as to how people view the material whenever, wherever, however they want. Shredding the concept that someone else should tell you what to watch, where to watch it, when to watch it. Exceptional ways of thinking about how we monitize the content that enables content idea, shooting, production people to do what they love and find an eager audience. Why did we qualify this with "could?" Because people who feel it's cool to purloin content don't hurt companies they hurt people - creatives, intermediaries, viewers. Just saying no thanks is a start to making our M&E entertaining. Read More

Content Insider #525 - Next Up for VR
More powerful graphic processor units and a series of new development tools combined with the creativity of filmmakers have set the stage for a spurt of new immersive films to emerge. As VR camera prices continue to drop (and improve) VR production is getting better as filmmakers experiment as to what works and what doesn't. Directors like Doug Liman have done a lot to put the viewer in the center of and in control of the story. It's surprising what a new generation of hardware and refined software can do in the hands of today's creative talents who are determined to make visual storytelling more compelling. Read More

Content Insider #524 - Women in Film
She took on a Mummy, Top Gun ace, slew of pirates, slimey alien, galaxy guardians, beach hulks, a king with a sword and more. Still Wonder Woman director Patty Jackson showed the industry that when it comes to stuff people want to see - great video content - they're gender blind. Now all the knuckle-draggers have to do is realize that the best man for the job -- say 50 percent of the time -- might be a woman. Of course we need to address things like color bias and equal pay but jeezz one step at a time. Wonder Woman is on the way to deliver $300M in the US and 4X that worldwide, her film's success might show the industry (and others) we have too many other challenges to simply ignore or dismiss half of the population.
