MLB, PGA, NFL. What do all three (and more) of these amazing sports organizations have in common? That's simple, the work of Technician Films. Tom Wells of Technician Films in Atlanta tells us how he combats mundane and mediocre television production, with all star, hard-hitting projects, one sporting event at a time.
Let’s get it straight right from the get-go. Right now there are several very good field recorders/monitors out in the field as we speak. I have had the good fortune of using and reviewing others such as Blackmagic Design Video Assist ($895) and Video Design PIX-E7 ($1695) to name two.
4K has been hyped as the next big thing in video, but unless you are an A/V geek, it is all too easy to get confused about what it means. Yoel Zanger, CEO and Founder of Giraffic gives you the insight you need to understand 4K.
The last decade’s “democratization of filmmaking” is a truly wonderful thing. It has enabled more people to create via a lower barrier of entry, resulting in multimedia experiences that would never have seen the light of day several years earlier.
by Bradford HillThe Canon XA25 Pro HD Camcorder is a compact 1/2" inch CMOS Sensor Camera with a lot of great and unexpected stand-out features. To start, its full auto & manual modes, its two XLR inputs, and an HDSDI slot packaged with the ability to shoot 1920x1080 at 59.94p are notable. While traveling on shoots, I was impressed with the capability to be able to record 1080p at 60fps within a moment’s notice. This frame rate is a new feature to the Canon line of cameras, which gives this camera a competitive edge. It is also easy to manage when set to auto mode, which comes in handy if a novice needs to use the camera on a small crew shoot, or to simply capture any ‘run-and-gun’ footage.
It's safe to say Panasonic's VariCams are quite the hot ticket item for production pros, find out exactly what it is that has these cams creating industry buzz.
For any production company, flexibility is key. It’s what allows you to overcome challenges, produce amazing footage and ensure the client’s happiness.

“I wanted to take a break from filming people and try something a little different,” says Atomos shooter Daniel Ludeman. The result was his stunning slow motion close-up film ‘Ichor’ – showing just how good a simple concept can be with great gear and flawless execution.
The rise of professional field monitors and recorders (or some combination thereof) has to be one of the most interesting and welcome product developments for filmmakers in recent memory. Pushed by demand for more features and benefits, manufacturers have answered the call. This new breed of smaller yet powerful monitor/recorders takes production capabilities to a whole new level with 4K and beyond.
When I was first approached about doing a product review for SlingStudio (owned by DISH), I was pretty skeptical. What would a huge company known for delivery content know about creating content? But I digress. I come from the traditional sit behind the switcher in the truck produce and punch the show or game. You get it. Big setups, lots of presets and time. Then it dawned on me that multicamera (multi-source) is mostly the same however you approach it. It's really all about scaling your production plan to the scale of the production and what is it that you want your audience to see and experience.
