The 2015 Saatchi and Saatchi showcase of short films by new directors is out and definitely worth a look.
The YouTube channel with all the work is here.
You can also read the Fast Company article about this years finalists here.
Recently we’ve been looking at production tools to make post-production in FCPX easier.
One system that looks worthy of further investigation is Lumberjack. Lumberjack is an app system that makes it easy to keyword while shooting that then helps to organise your footage in FCPX ready for editing. Lumberjack seems most suited to documentary film making (hence my interest) as well as other forms.
I guess like most of you I am constantly considering what gear I should be using for my film making. The mass of options now for 4k makes this the current big question. I must say I am waiting to see if Sony follows up on its recent releases with an A7s Mark II.
In the meantime, I found this interesting article and a video from Sundance on this very question.
I’ve been exploring the Leap Motion since it was released and using microcontrollers, like the Arduino and Raspberry Pi for longer. These devices seem a perfect combination for interactive art projects.
I recently came across this article on the Leap Motion blog and thought it might serve as a good starting point for others. You can read the article here.
Over the many years, Digital ImageMaker International (DIMi) has provided a huge number of articles for photographers, and then to a lesser extent artists, 3D animators and film makers.
However things change and so must DIMi. To this end we are redeveloping the site and planning an extensive move into a more eclectic coverage of film making, special effects, animation, digital art making and, of course, photography. The mix will better follow my interests today and the explorations that my daughter and I are making in film making.
So stay around for the ride, it should be an interesting one.
