Want a Great Sounding Film? Don't Skip These Key Details
If I had to pick one constant among independent film festival submissions it would be unintelligible dialogue. The cause of desperation of every director; the bane of every mixing engineer’s existence; the source of suffering of your friends and family, forced to go through a whole movie they don’t understand because the actors’ words simply can’t be heard. This and many other nuances of your film’s sound are the victims of a few often overlooked details, which in turn result in the delivery of a subpar soundtrack, driving your audio post team insane and wasting production money. Good news is these mistakes can very easily be prevented. You can start by tackling a few key issues often associated with your role.

The Rise of Virtual Fitness: The Story of Box, Brunch and Beats
Box, Brunch and Beats. is a virtual fitness event hosted by EverybodyFights (EBF.LIVE), an authentic boxing-inspired group fitness training camp created by George Foreman III. Because of COVID-19, EBF moved most of its classes online so that members could keep active and in touch with the EBF community. Historically, the mission of boxing gyms beyond the sport has been for community outreach: people of all backgrounds come together for advancing the mind, body, and soul. EBF is no different -- they could see their community hurting and wanted to do something to help. Rob Maloof, producer and DP at Gauntlet Films, has his office above EBF and decided to step in to help EBF LIVE with the live stream of this event specifically. He relied on two Pocket Cinema Camera 6Ks and ATEM Mini Pro live production switcher to make it happen.

Director Rik Reinholdtsen Brings a Show Stopping Cinematic Look to HBO Max's Legendary
HBO Max’s Legendary isn’t the first reality competition series to shine a light on a fascinating slice of LGBTQ+ culture, but series director Rik Reinholdtsen brought a showstopping cinematic look to the Ballroom competition show’s first season that is unlike anything you've ever seen before. Reinholdtsen (Cooked with Cannabis, Inside the Actor’s Studio, Chelsea) shot with the Canon EOS C700 Full-Frame Cinema Camera, EOS C500 Mark II, and Sumire Prime Lenses to create a larger-than-life look that matched the majesty of the Ballroom performances, which blend dance, performance art and fashion. Reinholdtsen used the same gear to shoot in the field for the documentary portions of the show, helping him achieve a cohesive look. We spoke exclusively to Reinholdtsen about his experience on Legendary, why Canon was the right choice for this project, and what inspired the show’s aesthetic.

How Non-engineers can Deliver Loudness Compliant Audio Faster Than Real-time
Over the past decade, most of the world has adopted some form of loudness legislation for television. This is wonderful news for casual viewers who understandably hate loud commercials, as well as for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which received approximately 1,000 complaints and 5,000 inquiries about excessively loud TV commercials between 2008 and 2012. But, for those who work in television post-production, it can complicate matters somewhat.

Q&A with Josh Apter, Creator of The Padcaster
PADCASTER PRODUCT TOUR from Manhattan Edit Workshop on Vimeo.Q: So, what exactly is The Padcaster? A: The Padcaster is a rugged iPad case turned mobile production studio that transforms your Apple tablet into an all-in-one moviemaking machine. This sturdy, customizable case lets videographers attach lights, mics and other filmmaking accessories and enhancements to the iPad. Paired with the Lenscaster, the combo takes the iPad from ordinary tablet to high-tech production device. Q: How did you come up with the idea for such a product? Was there an exact moment when the lightbulb went on and you thought of creating this device? A: When I saw that you could shoot HD video, edit it and upload it to almost anywhere (YouTube, Vimeo, CNN ireport, FTP) all on the iPad. It was faster than anything I’d ever seen and something literally clicked. It turned out to be a hernia, but while I was in surgery, I got the idea for the Padcaster. (OK, not that last part.)
