Content Insider #403 - Reputations By Miles Weston In today's always on, always available world the toughest job for a company is developing, maintaining, protecting its reputation. Business partners, customers who don't get the information/assistance they need can go around one/two people until the issue is handled. If people can't or won't accept the company's philosopphy and goals as theirs, believe that question/issue isn't their problem too should think about a new career path because they're doing the company and themselves a disservice.

There's just too many ways to capture it, produce it, ship it, view it, store it. It's time to meet the consumers' demands or wonder what in the **** happened! ...Read More »
Blackmagic Cameras and Michelle Pizanis Two of the year's biggest films are "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Furious 7." Both movies had some of the most amazing action footage ever shot. They both contain action and stunt scenes beyond what seems possible to shoot live. And they both had Michelle Pizanis working on them. While shooting a number of scenes in Sydney, Australia, Michelle and John used Blackmagic Cinema Cameras EF for some of the film's key scenes, including an exciting escape scene and a large, climatic action sequence involving exploding trucks and cinematic mayhem. The scenes were shot in RAW, which allowed the team to capture as much detail as possible within each shot, givin ...Read More »
Xsens MVN Wearable Motion-Capture Systems By Ko Maruyama A few years ago, I saw a projection show by Skrillex that featured motion capture. It was XSENS mocap, specifically an MVN Suit that allowed him to move and perform characters that became part of his stage presentation. The MVN is a full body suit that includes several small trackers in the suit that allows your actor to move quickly/easily. The Awinda system gives you the ability to record wirelessly too. The data then goes right to Maya. (Max/Houdini/C4D too). Xsens is used for all kinds of capture, from scientific to gaming. It's also been used for feature films, including the first Ted and now Ted 2. ...Read More »
Content Insider #401 - Mean What You Say By Miles Weston Talking about innovation is fun. Not real sure why it's so tough to do. Of course the fact that you have to do something totally different than what you did yesterday might have something to do with it because it isn't an easy path to follow. More importantly not everyone on your team has the same understanding as to what innovation means. It's important for your organization and you to take the chances and make it happen. Standing still isn't an option. Today or tomorrow! ...Read More »
