Robbie Carman, co owner of post production finishing company Amigo Media and colorist for the documentary “Snow Guardians”, took some time aside to share with us the process of creating such an immensely visual documentary. The doc is based on the life and work of Ski Patrol at several Montana Ski Resorts as well as the Search and Rescue teams that respond to winter emergencies.The visual goal of the “Snow Guardians” crew was to immerse the viewer into the lives of the men and women who take on this challenging high altitude job, while capturing the vast natural beauty of the remote and sometimes inhospitable mountain winter.The documentary is shot using cutting edge motion control time-lapse systems to help show the beauty and the amazing winter weather in Montana’s mountains.
by Andre ElijahSony Vegas Pro 13 is a Non Linear Editing system from the folks at Sony Creative Software akin to other professional mainstream NLEs from Avid, Adobe, and Apple. Like those other NLE's, Vegas Pro 13 has all of the day to day essentials required by a modern editor including, a timeline, media bins, a viewport for the selected clip, as well as a viewport for the timeline. Additionally - all of the tools in terms of making selections and trimming are where you'd expect. Since I come from a career of mainly editing documentaries - one of the things I've come across lots of is mixed formats of footage. RED, 5D mark II, GoPro, P2, XAVC, and files transcoded in ProRes. I'm glad to report that all of these formats work easily in Vegas Pro 13 - and it is as simple as drag and drop. Additionally you can mix and match all these types of footage in the same timeline without issue.
Believe it or not, the idea of a video resume is not at all novel. They have been around for a while; however, they have not been popular with mainstream hiring practices. Yet for the Production industry, it appears that video resumes are becoming a growing trend.
Editor Phil Bowman has built a wealth of career experience in fiction and documentary that cover military missions, true-crime, and ghost stories that cross into sci-fi. On Avid Media Composer, he has cut the feature film Pickups starring Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones) about the life of a jobbing actor, which premiered at the London Film Festival 2017, the Discovery show Gold Rush, which follows crews as they hunt for gold in the Yukon, and Obsession, a series telling the harrowing stories of victims of stalking.
Director Joseph Oxford and cinematographer Bradley Stonesifer created a unique live action short film “Me+Her,” which was accepted into this year’s Sundance Short Film program. What makes this film so special is that Joseph and Bradley created an incredible imaginary world where all of the main characters and sets were built out of standard cardboard boxes. While any film admitted into the Sundance competition is going to look amazing, the fact that Joseph and Bradley captured stunning images using only cardboard really sets this project apart.
So before we get to our illustrious winners, I think providing a little background is in order. When the ProductionHUB team set out to chose our Award of Excellence Winners it seemed like such a simple task. Slam dunk, 1, 2 3. Hour to pick the winners tops right? That would be such a resounding NO. Everyone (including me) in that room fought tooth and nail to do one thing. That one thing was to get it right. So after a lot of arguing, persuading, and flat out shouting at each other we had our list. Wasn’t easy or very pretty but when the dust settled there it was. There was so many solid products out there, and I won’t lie we all had our own favorites. But that didn’t matter. So,some four arduous hours later we were done. Best of the best. Let’s go!
