At the recent Real Screen Summit I Washington DC, the panel, “Revenge of the Documentary” suggested that docs may be undergoing a rebirth on American TV in the next few years. Major brands like Discovery, National Geographic, Showtime, HBO etc proclaimed that they will be relying increasingly on documentaries to chart a course back to their core values and away from the homogeneity of similarly formatted unscripted, so-called reality TV shows.
Real-time Augmented Graphics that Blend the Real and Virtual Worlds with Marker-less Camera Tracking
Augmented graphics have come a long way in the past decade, from formerly rotund weatherman Al Roker obscuring the first two days of the seven-day forecast to reporter Jessica Yellin channeling a holographic Princess Leia while discussing results of the 2008 presidential campaign with Wolf Blitzer. Fast forward ten years and the real and virtual worlds are blending into one.
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.
There are two audiences for your real estate videos, Buyers - people looking to purchase a new home, and Sellers - people looking for an agent to potentially sell their home. There is a very wide range of production cost and complexity to create stunning real estate video, but you need to ensure that you are marketing to both audiences. The best video will in combination sell a home for the most money, and attract future clients who will pay the best premium fees to you.

This mid-winter convocation has become the pre-eminent gathering of buyers, distributors and producers of reality TV, documentaries and other non-fiction programming in the Americas. Consequently, it also attracts hundreds of producers working in these genres eager to distribute finished or nearly finished programs, and to pre-sell projects in varying stages of development.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is the latest addition to the space-fantasy franchise. For this installment, the teams at Lucasfilm and ILM took visual inspiration from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope to tell a new story of Han Solo’s early adventures.
Well, that didn’t take long. Atomos dropped an early announcement prior to the show open. The calibrated Sumo 19” Recorder/Monitor/Switcher has all the potential to be a real game changer for maybe every segment of the production market today.
In the production industry, if you’re not proactively trying to stay ahead of the changes in technology and production styles, you risk being left behind. While there’s certainly value and credence given to those who know and understand the basics, real creative muscle is stretched when you take chances and explore styles that are unfamiliar territory.
We all want to work on films and commercial productions where we have the budget and the creative that allows for casting calls, talent agents and professional actors to deliver inspired performances. But in reality many creative concepts these days call for "real talent," another way of saying using real people vs. professional actors. After years of experience working with and without professional actors as talent, I have found that despite having non-pros as actors, you can still evoke great performances. In fact, when a good directing job is achieved, you may find the real-person performance is the most authentic, from-the-heart acting on camera. And if anything, directing non-professionals is great practice in a more forgiving environment for your directing skills.
