  1. Money can't buy you creativity...

    If you're anything like me, you'd happily spend a small fortune on video gear. And it's easily done - software alone can set you back a few grand. We probably talk about the latest fad more than we'll actually used it. But how do you justify spending (or as my wife would say, "wasting") money on new gear, particularly when you're just replacing a perfectly good camera.

    My last "upgrade" was a DSLR. I managed to persuade myself that a DSLR was a logical step, especially ...
  2. When video takes over

    Cameras are everywhere and broadcasting to the world via YouTube. Mobile phones provide high quality videos in a tiny package, and phones like the nokia n8 even provide instant editing and upload. It's never been so easy to film, edit and share your video. You could say we're in a golden age of instant access and portability. A position only dreamt of 5 years ago. Anyone can become a video star, and by the look of YouTube, everyone has.

    So why do I insist on lugging a small broadcast ...
  3. The video editing laptop adventure

    Forum regulars know my love of laptop editing. It's a great way of ensuring your hobby doesn't keep you locked away in an editing suite. But that freedom comes at a cost: finding a laptop that even approaches the power of a laptop is a daunting process.

    Desktop replacements aren't a new thing, and powerful laptop's have never been cheap or portable. But high end laptops are thin on the ground. With most laptops coming in at under 800, the choice of high end laptops on the high street ...
  4. You may not know it, but you need an iPad

    by , 10-03-2010 at 03:38 PM (The Digital Director Experience: Video Editing Fundamentals)
    I honestly never thought I'd say it, but I really want an iPad. It seemed the epitome of everything I dislike: technology for the sake of it. After all, it doesn't really know if it's a gloried PDA (remember those), a oversized iPhone, or just half a laptop. I looked at them with disdain, and certainly didn't need to try one before I knew I didn't need one.

    But then I tried an iPad in PC World. Unlike the locked down PCs, those sensible Apple chaps insisted that the store actually let ...

  5. The price of videography failure

    by , 10-06-2009 at 07:27 AM (The Digital Director Experience: Video Editing Fundamentals)
    It had to happen sooner or later. A videographer has been sued for breach of contract following a less than professional attempt. Parting with 1.5k for a video and photography package, Marc and Sylvia were presented with a video nasty.
