Whatever can go wrong will go wrong — that’s Murphy’s Law of film production. In the course of filming, editing, and screening any content, problems are bound to occur that can cause delays or unexpected expenses. A filmmaker has to be an exceptional problem solver if they hope to be successful.
In my work I see a lot of résumés from aspiring filmmakers and recent graduates looking for production jobs. Most people make the same mistakes — but you don’t have to.
If you’re that special kind of weird that’s happy to spend 16 hours in a production truck elbow-to-elbow with a team of misfits, you might like that very special world of college sports production.
Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with some of the best and brightest minds in sports production. Everybody involved in the production side of things has brought their own unique style and expertise to the table - outstanding producers and directors, technical directors, audio engineers with mad skills, rock solid camera ops, and dare I say hundreds of other technicians, grips, and production assistants, and just a lot of other people that make great sports productions happen. But all of the people I have just mentioned whether they were part of a big crew, or of just a crew of two have one thing in common.
Production monitors are in a period of flux. As we transition from the familiar REC709 HD signal standard into an uncertain future, the idea that there is one “standard” monitor in the broadcasting/high-end video/digital cinema production space is no longer true, if it ever was. However, there are a few models that we like, use and consistently recommend to our customers at AbelCine.
In the words of the late great Jerry Garcia and The Dead, “What a long strange trip it’s been.” Truer words have never been spoken. But the question(s) still remains, Where are we (our beloved industry) in terms of actually working? Is it safe or not safe? Consistent production is still a moving target.

The domination of video has made it an exciting time to have a hand in the production industry. As we head into 2019, emerging technologies are beginning to disrupt the way we create and consume content. New gear, formats, and expectations are setting the stage for mini-revolutions across business and media. We have already begun to see the first signs of where things are headed- some to be expected and others more surprising.

Well, there are quite a few reasons why you want to hire a professional. And I’m here to help outline them for you. So before you grab a camera and head off to dreams of Technicolor glory, here are a few guidelines.
From concerts and plays to exhibits and conventions, live event production designers do it all. With the wide variety of venues and client demands, production designers operate in a high-pressure industry where they have to be flexible and able to adapt to given settings, which can be difficult when you’re hundreds of miles away from the site and your design associates are unable to travel to the venue and see what you’re working with. Traditional documentation can help designers gain an understanding of what they’re working with, but it’s not the same as experiencing a physical space for themselves. However, with the rise of virtual reality (VR) technology, there is an improvement to this problem.
