    Producer’s Corner: September 25, 2014

    This year was my first “in person” IBC and I walked away very impressed, not only with the quality of the exhibitors but also with a profound appreciation for the attendees, who seemed enthusiastic and polite on a level that we don’t quite see at NAB! If you can imagine 50,000 plus people all mingling with little fanfare and lots of concentration, that is IBC. No booths blaring louder than the next vying for attention and giving us headaches.

    This week on the Digital Production BuZZ, we visit Evan Daugerty’s reimagining of the uber-classic characters from Super Mario Brothers (you’ve never seen them like this before); take a walk into the world of mega-storage with Brent Bucci, Vice President of MediaFire and learn some tricks from one of Playhouse West’s charismatic acting coaches, Kathleen Randazzo.

    Producer’s Corner: August 8, 2013

    This week’s BuZZ is going to be very interesting! We will be talking to Chuck Braverman, co-founder of Westdoc; Doug Hansel about Avid’s Media Composer 7 that shipped in July and B-Movie sensation Sharknado’s editor, William Boodell.

    I was at an LAPPG (Los Angeles Post Production Group) event last night and many in the room were talking about this “industry,” and how hard it is to find work. The topics centered around the fact that many clients are not paying as much as they used to for our services. Read more…

    We work all day, from early morning until late at night, close down the computer one last time (or put it to sleep if you are like me and you have 12+ programs running at once) then commute home (even if that means walking away from the desk into the living room). Ah, time for…. TV? Facebook? A movie with friends? The latest video game? Read more…

    Producer’s Corner: April 4, 2013

    Tonight’s DPBuZZ is all about friendship, hanging out and sharing news and information. It doesn’t matter what the “economy” is telling us. We need a place to congregate – to see, hear and interact on a personal level with our geeky peers. What better place than the 2013 NAB Show! The Woodstock of broadcasting/creative/tech conventions, it is a virtual mecca for all things, well.. broadcast, creative and tech. Read More…

    Don’t you enjoy observing how developers and engineers build the technical foundations that exist to support us as we create media content? And isn’t it amazing to then turn around and witness that technology working to make content come to life in the hands of creative people? It is truly a daily miracle in Hollywood.

    We have been debating 4K here at the BuZZ and with our tech friends around the globe. Do you think it will resonate with audiences? Do you think content providers will be able to make a living producing with 4K in mind? Read More…
