Tuskegee Airmen 75th Anniversary: A Documentary Revisited
When Denton Adkinson and Bryan Williams told us the story of their documentary, In Their Own Words: The Tuskegee Airmen, back in 2011, we were amazed. It was one of the most popular stories we published that year, not just because of the inspiring subject matter, but for the remarkable way it came together as a project, and in post. In the years since then, the film has taken on a life of its own, including national DVD distribution, becoming part of high school curricula, NFL celebrations, museum presentations, and more. Now in 2016, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Tuskegee Airmen, their film will be presented as a live event on over 200 screens across the US. To get there, though, Denton and Bryan had to update their SD original for the big screen, add a surround mix, and prep it for digital distribution. This is a story of faith, fortitude, upres, ProRes, and the power of positive phone calls that you won't want to miss.

Introducing the all new www.CreativeCowMagazine.net website
In this article, Ron Lindeboom, one of the co-founders of CreativeCOW.net and company architect and head of business development, says of the new magazine site interface: "I have never seen a magazine interface that makes as much sense and gives as much access to so much content, in so few steps." Those that helped test the new site while it was in development, agreed, stating that they didn't need any instructions to use it -- but we offer some here, anyway.
