Long gone are the days of virtual reality limited to flimsy 3-D glasses: the 360fly is here to challenge your perception of interactive, fully immersive video. This revolutionary camera weighs less than a pound, is water, dust and shock-resistant, and captures 360° horizontal x 240° angles, but there is still one major goal: to make it accessible for the everyday user. 360fly talks about the 360 video industry and how they're bringing it into the hands of the common consumer.
Last Christmas it was big news when the FAA required hobbyists to register their drones. What’s set to be the big news in 2016? The legalization of drones for commercial use. You may be asking yourself - wait, I can’t use drones in my business right now?
Until they are printed or framed, a photographers actual “products” are digital files held on either a hard drive, SD card, or USB drive. It’s similar for broadcast video files, where they remain hidden away in digital form until displayed on screen. Keeping a massive collection of images or video files on just one storage medium is a recipe for disaster, as accidents and errors do happen. And, photographers that lose their work risk ruining their current customers, reputation and business referrals.
In this business, it's important to make sure you're getting your name out there. ProductionHUB has helped play an important role in helping me do that as a cinematographer. The ability to bid on jobs has been a great feature, but even better is when a client approaches you because they’ve seen your profile and are interested in hiring you. Instead of a cold email, you’re now getting a direct lead that ProductionHUB did all the work for! Those kinds of leads are great because the client has already vetted your work and is interested in getting a quote from you. This can lead to lasting relationships with new directors, agencies, and production companies.
Drones. I’m going to be real with you. They intimidate me. I, in general, am clumsy, unstable (not emotionally, thank you very much) and should not be piloting anything. But, there are a few things I understand immensely: art, creative advancements, and laws—at least enough to break them.
Here’s a HUGE issue that my contemporaries and I see all too often. Productions just know that they “need a drone” and lump all UAV’s into the same category. Now pay attention class because this is important: What you need is a skilled and licensed pilot/company that has the correct camera/drone/team combination for your production.

My name is Eli Hershko and I am a photographer turned cinematographer turned director. It was a natural progression for me. I always was drawn to the moving images. I love being involved in the making of movies but I do not tend to shoot my own films. I just can't focus on both the actors and the image at the same time and since they both are equally important in my eyes I tend to look to a cinematographer that can take on the heavy toll of putting my story on film... or digital film in my case.
