Beautiful Berlin turned depressing for Korean spy thriller 'The Berlin File' and Post Production with DaVinci Resolve As the capital of Germany, Berlin is a beautiful city with both modern infrastructures and sites of historic interest, but as the setting for 'The Berlin File', a 2013 South Korean spy thriller written and directed by Korean action auteur Ryu Seung-wan and starring Korea's top actors including Ha Jung-woo, Han Suk-kyu, Ryu Seung-bum and Jun Ji-hyun against each other in the twisty tale of political intrigue and personal redemption, Berlin has to be unpleasant enough. With a strong opening in box office, the action blockbuster attracted 7 million admissions in early 2013 to become the all-time highest-grossing Korean action film and the critics applauded its "secretive and gloomy atmosphere", which contributed to the film's great success.

more >> The Panasonic AG-HPX255 Camera and BT-LH1850 Monitor I could see shooting a variety of projects with this camera
by Jeremiah Hall
The AG-HPX255 is a hand-held 1/3 2.2 megapixel 3-MOS camera. It uses P2 cards. It records full 1920x1080, 10-bit 4:2:2. It is also capable of being used in a studio environment, thanks to a remote terminal compatible with Panasonic's AG-EC4 Paint Box remote control. Not bad for a camera that lists at $6,995.00. The BT-LH1850 is 18.5" monitor. It has a resolution of 1366 x 768. It's big enough for multiple people to look at, while being small enough to carry around to shoots. It has a built-in vectorscope, as well as a waveform monitor for RGB signals.
Using Interactive Video to Spur Engagement and Capture Metrics In the video production business the primary goal is to tell a client's story
by Michael Castellano

Company representatives who are researching products and services online clearly prefer video: A recent Forbes article noted that almost 60% of business professionals said they would watch a video first before reading the text on the same page. But it's important to recognize that not all video messaging strategies are created equal. Why Ben Affleck Is Getting Honorary Doctorate Degree From Brown University

Replay XD: "A POV Camera Designed for Professionals?" This is an old-school bullet cam
by Douglas Spotted Eagle
In the earliest days of sport POV production, photographers were excited about the advent of the "lipstick camera" for its small form factor and ease of use. The camera(s) could be mounted on a wing, helmet, or other foundation, cabled to a recorder, and used for new angles in production. These bullet wonders helped create the sense of "being there." They were also horribly expensive and fragile. In modern times, we've seen the camera shrink in size, and dramatically improve in image quality. In many cases, this size-shrink inspires kludgy form factors, and this is where the Replay XD camera shines.

by Dave Nagel
I realized some time ago that it's simply too difficult for new readers of our publications to go hunting through the tutorials archives here to find all of the parts to our Filter Factory tutorial series. To date there have been six parts--two specific tutorials on generating 3D effects, one on customizing the interface of completed filters and three general pieces on working with the Filter Factory's expressions, functions and operators to generate effects.

FlyingS3D sets Le Crazy Horse on Fire with Pablo Leading Paris S3D facility creates stunning 3D movie 'Feu' for world-famous Paris cabaret FlyingS3D opened its doors early in 2010 as France's first dedicated stereoscopic 3D post production facility. FlyingS3D is the brainchild of managing director Audrey Bourdiol, who had spent her career up until then looking after the technical side of one of France's largest post houses. With already more than 30 major S3D projects under its belt, in 2012 FlyingS3D won the full post production for 'Feu' (Fire) - a 3D film by Le Crazy Horse - one of its most ambitious projects to date. Le Crazy Horse cabaret was founded in 1951 by the avant-garde artist Alain Bernardin and has delivered its own special brand of glamour entertainment to millions of men and women for more than sixty years. 'Feu' is designed to bring Le Crazy experience to cinema audiences worldwide; 3D was "the natural choice" to achieve this aim, says Audrey Bourdiol.
