On the show, Bill Cosby played a secret agent. Never before had a black man held a leading role on an American television drama. Casting Cosby was viewed as revolutionary — and controversial. But another revolution began the day Cosby came face-to-face with his stunt double — a white man who had been painted black. They not only painted the man, they used a hue of makeup that didn’t even come close to Cosby’s brown skin color, as Cosby recalled to an audience at the 2008 Black Stuntmen’s Association reunion at the Fitzgerald Hotel in Las Vegas.

Jeffrey Katzenberg celebrated Dreamworks Animation’s 20th anniversary, replete with a cake and an audience rendition of Happy Birthday, at the BFI London Film Festival as he gave this year’s annual industry keynote.

And, Premiere Pro CC was able to play back 6K files in real-time for VFX review.

This fantastic video from Izzy Hyman is great not just for filmmaking, but for any time you need to mic somebody up and the lav can't be in the shot. I'm not a huge fan of lavs, even less so when they have to be hidden, but if you shoot video, or you're getting into audio, at some point you're going to have to do some of these techniques. The triangle tape trick has been one of the most useful to me, and if you've never seen it or used it before, you should absolutely try it the next time you need to hide a lav.
