Jumping Genres on "Trent & Isabella"
DP Paul Del Vecchio Uses Blackmagic Cinema Cameras and New Debayer Feature on Indie Drama

You would get "Trent & Isabella." Read More

California will triple its tax breaks for entertainment companies doing business in the state, the latest effort to stem a tide of runaway production that has cost billions in revenue in Hollywood's home state under a deal announced on Wednesday.

 This $33 Smartphone Is The First-generation IPhone Of 2014
Earlier this week, Mozilla unveiled its first-ever low-end smartphone for customers in India: the Intex Cloud FX. At just $33, the Firefox OS device is one of the cheapest smartphones on the market, but how do its specifications stand up to other cheap phones in emerging markets? The Cloud FX is clearly not meant to compete with the Galaxy S5 or the iPhone 5s, but there is one Apple handset it might be able to go toe-to-toe with.

 Hands-On With Hyperlapse, Instagram’s New Video Creation App
Instagram has just launched a brand new standalone app called Hyperlapse, which focuses entirely on mobile video creation. The app looks dead simple, but is actually doing a lot in the background. Once a user has recorded a video, the app gives the user a single control over the content: speed. Users can switch from 1x speed all the way up to 12x speed.
