    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."

      Rogue One’s Random Cam, and other previs fun

      January 19, 2017, 6:14 am
      Now that we’ve all seen Rogue One five times and deconstructed the storyline, the characters and the visual effects, it’s fun to also consider how some of the iconic shots came to be. Of course, ILM and Lucasfilm’s art department crafted many of the incredible concepts, but some of the first shot designs were done by the previs team at The Third Floor.

      Seven Editorial Tips For Fine Cutting Films

      January 19, 2017, 6:14 am
      We are in the final stages of fine cutting ‘Seeing Him’, a short film written, produced by and starring Vanessa Bailey. I have stepped into the directors shoes after my good friend Catherine Arton stepped down as director, entrusting me to finish her good work. I have already spent time working with our hugely experienced editor Chris Frith but wanted a fresh opinion.

      How To Save Your Edit From Being Just "Meh"

      January 19, 2017, 6:14 am
      OK, we're a stock footage company. But one of the reasons we built this is because we saw it coming. The "it" is what's actually happening now in commercial and non-commercial videos - aerial shots. And not just Helicopter shots, but drone stock shots. You can tell by the height on most shots and the "pep" of them.
