Making the Case for an Unsung Hero Tripod
When my star ProductionHUB Content Manager Bri called me a few weeks ago and mentioned something about doing that “tripod product review” I have to admit I was pretty skeptical. Ok, very skeptical. But I said ok. It was just a tripod, something we take for granted because we one use all the time and honestly don’t give it too much thought unless somebody leaves it behind, or it binds up after 10 years of relentless use with no maintenance. Yes, you know who you are. I mean what could I write about a tripod? Really. Boy, was I wrong. Turns out there would be a lot to be said after all. I just didn't know it yet.

How to Produce a Big-Game TV Ad in 3 Days or Less.
by featured blog contributor, Jeremy PinckertMost Super Bowl ads are exquisitely planned, taking months of pre-production involving the best creative minds in the business. They also are blessed with stratospheric budgets. But what happens when your client calls you to produce something for the big game, and it’s only weeks away? Put down that Ambien, there’s no need to fret - this survival guide can help you rise to the challenge! The University of Notre Dame found out they needed an “institutional message” to air during college football’s BCS title game. This title game was expected to draw over 30 million viewers, becoming the highest-watched sports game in history outside of the Super Bowl. We received a call to see if I could direct the crew and if my company, Explore Media, could produce the entire spot. The caveat? This happened on a Tuesday morning. They needed to shoot by Friday of the same week! If we wouldn’t have had the background tips I’m going to share in this guide, I don’t think there’s any way we would’ve achieved the results.

DJI Announces Game Changer 35mm Sensor Camera and New Lens Group Integrated into Inspire Drone
Like we said in our last ProductionHUB newsletter, the new product announcements just keep on coming. In the intimate (and way too cool) setting of the Neuhous Theater and under a gorgeous Los Angles twilight, DJI unleashed maybe — just maybe — one of the most captivating and interesting new products in recent memory. The Zenmuse X7 with a 35mm sensor and a full set of new carbon fiber lens designed specifically to work with the 35mm sensor. Gotta tell you straight up - they knocked it out of the park. Long known for excellence in the drone world, DJI seems keen on not only keeping up but also surpassing the norm. What was on display wasn’t just new product but some new ways of approaching the production and post-production workflow.
