Okay, I am not on the road to NAB... but David Leitner is, and he will be filing reports from the conference here at Filmmaker. Look for his pieces beginning tomorrow or Monday. There are other sites to follow as well. Koo will be attending NAB for the first time and posting interviews, write-ups and news over at No Film School. Phillip Bloom will be attending as will Vincent Laforet. For many, the big news, at least tomorrow, will be (the rumored) announcement by Apple of the new Final Cut Pro.

As much as we love contemporary dance – Siobhan Davies, Wayne McGregor, Liz Aggiss, and others, it isn't covered by Spike's remit. We do, however, write about film and can bend the rules for The Physical TV Company. Formed in 1997, by Dr Karen Pearlman and Dr Richard James Allen, the Australian-based outfit has focused on dance film. Although their motto is "stories told by the body", Physical TV has an increasing interest in transmedia and mixed reality. It's an exciting proposition.

Color grading has always been thought of as an extremely expensive cost to the line item of producers, directors and DPs, and with good reason. The days of being pampered in color suites with lattes, food and big comfy couches are still around, but the tools for the most part have changed and prices have come down to an unbelievable advantage to all in the film and broadcast industry.

Originally planned as the follow-up to 300 (2006), the action-fantasy created by Steve Shibuya and Zack Snyder has finally become a reality.

You don’t know what you’ve been missing until you’ve had a taste of it. That’s what I recently discovered during my evaluation of Nvidia’s flagship graphics card, the Quadro 6000. It’s based on Nvidia’s Fermi architecture, which brings a new set of cutting edge features to the table. And it clearly jumps way out ahead of its little brother, the Quadro FX 5800. With an extra 2GB GDDR5 memory and 208 more CUDA processor cores, the Quadro 6000 packs a serious punch. Just don’t expect it to come...

We've been hearing all kinds of Chatter that the next version of Final Cut Pro will debut in Vegas at NAB next week. Thing is, we hear this every year and Apple hasn't really done a NAB properly in awhile. That's OK, we'll take that we can get.

Every year at NAB the FCPUG (Final Cut Pro User Group) puts on their own event dubbed the "SuperMeet." Since Apple pulled out of NAB two years ago, no one knew how the expected announcement of a new Final Cut Pro at this year’s NAB would take place. With all other scheduled events at this year’s SuperMeet suddenly being cancelled at the request of Apple, who apparently wants exclusive stage time, it looks like the new FCP will be unveiled publicly on April 12 at Bally’s Event Center.

As if keeping track of existing formats weren’t bad enough — do I shoot film or digital? 16 or 35? RED or Alexa or F35 or something else? — it looks like filmmakers’ options have multiplied again. At CinemaCon (the former ShoWest) last week, James Cameron made the latest pitch to exhibitors for shooting and exhibiting movies at faster frame rates than the 24 fps standard. The other shoe dropped yesterday, when word came out of New Zealand that cinematographer Andrew Lesnie is in fact shooting...
