Audio Shapes The Meaning of the Visuals

This afternoon, I came across this interesting example of how audio can affect the way we perceive visual images. These two trailers for the Resonance film have an identical visual track, but the audio between the two segments is radically different. As a result the emotion of, and my reaction to the two trailers differs […]

Friday Round-up: The $2.99 Follow Focus, Revolutionary Data Visualization and Mr. Beam Takes On the World

The $2.99 Follow Focus. I came across this little tidbit last night, a jar opener turned follow focus and am game to give it a try. Thus weekend I’ll be making a trip to Bed Bath and Beyond (probably the only the you’ll hear that on my blog) and pick up one to test. I’ll […]

New Work: ASMP Find A Photographer

Earlier this month, we helped ASMP create a Web commercial to highlight their Find A Photographer service to art buyers. Find A Photographer is a unique database of ASMP member photographers that can be searched by geographic region or photographic speciality. In short, it allows an art buyer to find a photographer for their next […]

The Truth About the Future of The Media Industry

I came across this article yesterday comparing the market value of “new media” companies like Google, Facebook etc. to the “Old Media” empires of Disney, Comcast and News Corp. In this comparison, the value of new media companies and old media companies are roughly equal. While I don’t necessarily agree that market capitalization is the best […]

30 Days of CS5: Indesign Interactivity

The past several months have been a wild ride for anyone looking to create and distribute interactive Web sites, digital video and multimedia accessible via desktop Web browsers and mobile devices. Apple’s reluctance to allow Flash onto the iPhone and iPad, and the resulting brouhaha between the two companies, has taken some of the steam […]

30 Days of CS5: Adobe Media Encoder

It’s great to have seemingly unfettered control of your digital video, but this freedom is all for naught if you’re not able to deliver your video to the people who want to view it. For many, video encoding is a black art, complete with esoteric terminology, a range of buttons, dials and pulldown menus that […]

Inspiration: Coke Quest

In trolling through the dozens of RSS feeds I subscribe to, I often come across videos, photos, quotes and things I find inspirational. I don’t, however, often post them. I’ve decided to change that. Because we all can use a little extra wind in our sails and a creative boost every now and again. I […]

Correcting Video With Photoshop

Apple Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro offer powerful color-correcting tools for digital video. The trouble is, they are more difficult to use than the tools you’re accustomed to using in Photoshop. The good news is if you have Photoshop CS3 or CS4 extended, you can open and correct video using adjustment layers, Photoshop […]

Art Among The Collisions: Brilliant Architectural Cinematography

Alex Roman’s Kahn’s Exeter Short Film left me speechless for two reasons. First, it is a stunning exploration of light and composition using the library at Phillips Exeter Academy, designed by renowned architect Louis Kahn, as the subject. Kahn’s Exeter Short Film from Alex Roman on Vimeo. Perhaps more important, this film was created using […]

TIFF and JPEG images in Adobe Premiere Pro

In a series of tests I conducted earlier this summer, I discovered that TIFF and JPEG images are displayed differently in Adobe Premiere Pro. First, it appears the difference is found only on the Mac platform where JPEG files are decoded by QuickTime and TIFF is handled internally within Premiere Pro. This leads to two […]
