      CES Turns 50

      June 22, 2017, 12:41 pm
      The World in June 1967: CES occurred just as the "Summer of Love" began amid anti-war protests, civil rights marches, and the sex, drugs and rock n' roll counter-culture revolution — a world in which adults knew something was happening but didn't know what it was. The baby boom generation was just becoming an economic as well as a cultural force, “Bonanza” was the top-rated TV show, “The Dirty Dozen” was the big hit at the box office, and "Groovin'" by the Young Rascals was the nation's top song.

      How to Fake a Dolly Zoom in Premiere Pro

      June 22, 2017, 5:15 am
      If you're a Hitchcock fan, you're no doubt aware of the dolly zoom, also known as the "Vertigo effect." It's dazzlingly disorienting, but it also requires a zoom lens and the physical ability to move the lens in space, things that aren't always simultaneously possible, such as if you're shooting with a drone. Here's how to fake the effect in Premiere Pro.

      AI film editor can cut scenes in seconds to suit y

      June 21, 2017, 5:31 pm
      AI has won at Go and done a few other cool things, but so far it's been mighty unimpressive at harder tasks like customers service, Twitter engagement and script writing. However, a new algorithm from researchers at Stanford and Adobe has shown it's pretty damn good at video dialogue editing, something that requires artistry, skill and considerable time. The bot not only removes the drudgery, but can edit clips using multiple film styles to suit the project.
