Colour Studio Uruguay Shoots and Scores in Post Production

Thinking About Extras

Colour Studio Uruguay Shoots and Scores in Post Production

By Arthur Vincie | July 08, 2014

This happens a lot: I’m budgeting a script and I get to this crowded street scene, or a basketball game, or a really killer dance set piece.  I figure out as best I can how many extras are needed, and budget all the related costs accordingly.  Then I present the budget to the producer and she’s horrified.  “One hundred thousand for extras?  What the hell?”

Colour Studio Uruguay Shoots and Scores in Post Production

With the new D810 DSLR, Nikon wants to take the crown from Canon's video champion, the EOS 5D Mark III.

By Jose Antunes | July 01, 2014

Nikon was the first to introduce video in DSLRs, but that pioneer position did not stop Canon from taking the sceptre and running to the front. It has been this way since then, but a new era might have started: Nikon is back on the fight, with the Nikon D810, a camera conceived with video in mind. The new DSLR is launched with a mission: conquer Canon's territory in terms of video. Specifications similar to the EOS 5D Mark III and a competitive price are part of arsenal Nikon has provided the D810 with. But there is more to discover in this new camera.

Updated Product Review: Genus Mini Jib with MoCo

Colour Studio Uruguay Shoots and Scores in Post Production

Truly Compact and Portable Jib for DSLRs and HD Camcorders

By Jeff Foster | June 28, 2014

The new Genus Mini Jib was designed for portability and simple setup/operation on location. It's not meant to be a studio jib but while it can handle a decent payload of about 9lbs, you can manage to get a decent load to balance and maintain control of the operation. I give the Genus Mini Jib a thorough test with different camera configurations and push it to the limits. UPDATED with the Genus MoCo motion control system for the Mini Jib started on the bottom of Page 2.
