    Boston University Installs Blackmagic Design

    June 16, 2011, 10:55 am
    Milpitas, CA – June 15, 2011 – Blackmagic Design today announced that Boston University's College of Communication (COM) is using Blackmagic Design's ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher and ATEM 1 M/E Broadcast Panel in their Production and Journalism studios.
    The studios are extensively used by hundreds of students and faculty in both course and extracurricular
    applications, specifically butv10 and butv10.com, the University’s student produced campus channel and
    website. In addition, numerous production professionals in the Greater Boston area rent the facilities.



    The ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher and Broadcast Panel are at the heart of COM’s two full production
    studios. They are being used for everything from butv10’s live programming to the seven other studio based
    series in production, including the 2011 Telly Award winning On That Point. "The ATEM products allow us
    greater dexterity in our production capability," said Assistant Professor Christophor Cavalieri, butv10’s faculty
    advisor. "They are great tools to train the next generation of multi camera production professionals."



    The transition to the ATEM hardware was seamless, with students and technical staffers completing production
    of weekly shows and other major projects after a single training session. COM’s Post Production Specialist Jake
    Kassen explained, "These studios are professional environments outfitted with top of the line equipment, which
    now includes a fully functional switcher and panel that are simple enough to both learn and teach."



    He continued, "The ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher’s numerous inputs and outputs allow users to customize
    their workflows, and the Broadcast Panel is so intuitive, it takes the hands on learning experience to new
    heights." Students from around the country attending this summer’s Academy of Media Production (AMP)
    program at COM will be working with ATEM. AMP is a nationally acclaimed program for high school students
    interested in exploring educational and professional opportunities in media production. Kassen added, "As we
    prepare for the Academy of Media Production, we know we selected the right quality equipment to give these
    young students the best production experience possible."

      AOTC with "TWIN PEAKS" editor DuWayne Dunham

      October 22, 2017, 6:59 am
      DuWayne Dunham’s filmography is so extensive and impressive that trying to summarize it in a paragraph just doesn’t do him justice, so I’d advise checking out imdb for more. But a quick summary is: Assistant editor on “Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Editor on “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi,” “Blue Velvet,” “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” the original TV series “Twin Peaks,” “Wild at Heart,” and “K-11.” He is also a director, including on the original TV series, “Twin Peaks” and the features “Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey” and “Little Giants.” I spoke to Dunham about editing David Lynch’s return to “Twin Peaks” on Showtime.

      This is my first MAX, and I naively looked at the map and my schedule and said "ah, this will be easy. It's like a fraction of the size NAB is, so I won't die!"
