The Women in Post PR List: No More #AllMalePanels

The Women in Post PR List: No More #AllMalePanels

Did you know the #allmalepanel is such a common phenomenon that a UN organization is urging its employees (and 8,500 member organizations like Coca-Cola and Cisco) to stop participating in them? As we enter NAB 2016, Kylee Peña is looking at balancing the scales with more women on the panels.

Drone Rules Suck...and Why You Want Them

Drone Rules Suck...and Why You Want Them

Rules! Why do we need so many rules for drones? Pilot, skydiver, and drone operator Douglas Spotted Eagle agrees, “Some of the UAV/drone rules and laws are not only unreasonable but downright ineffective,” but when you look more closely from a pilot’s eye view, they start to make much more sense. Starting with this principle: common sense isn’t all that common!

Orson Welles' Brief, Passionate Love Affair with Betacam

Orson Welles' Brief, Passionate Love Affair with Betacam

A video production pioneer who shot with the first Sony Betacam camera and set up the first Betacam to 1-inch edit suite, Frank Beacham also worked with Orson Welles on Welles’ final project before passing away in 1985. Welles was exceptionally engaged with the most technical aspects of the cutting edge technology that was just beginning to emerge, including a passionate belief in the possibilities that Betacam could offer. This is a truly astounding tale of creativity at the crossroads, and an intimate look inside the mind and work of one of the 20th century’s most influential storytellers.

The Last Film Lab?

The Last Film Lab?

Sure, some of the biggest movies are still being shot on film, but in a world where film cameras haven't been in production for years, where only one company still makes motion picture film, and by the end of the year, there may be no more film prints for theatrical distribution, it's no wonder that the number of businesses who can sustain themselves by processing film has plummeted. In this latest dispatch from the film BUSINESS, Creative COW Contributing Editor Debra Kaufman finds industry leaders asking themselves, will 2014 be the year we see the last film lab?

An Odd Delight: A Corporate Editor's Leap Into Broadcast

An Odd Delight: A Corporate Editor's Leap Into Broadcast

Creative COW Contributing Editor Kylee Wall moved from Indianapolis to Atlanta as part of a move from corporate video into broadcast. Sure, some things stayed the same, but so much more was so different -- a new place to live, a new kind of workspace, new kinds of projects, AND TAPE -- that transitioning to a new NLE in Adobe Premiere Creative Cloud was the least of it. Certainly nothing compared to a fever of 104 that took her out for most of her first week. It's a remarkable tale that Kylee tells as only she can.
