    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."

      How Eisenstein filmed the Unfilmable through Monta

      January 23, 2018, 5:54 am
      If you happened to look something up today, you might've noticed a familiar face on the Google Doodle. That's because January 22, 2018 marks what would've been the 120th birthday of Sergei Eisenstein, the Soviet filmmaking pioneer that helped usher in the modern age of movie making and film editing. If you're not well acquainted with the Latvian director, this video essay from One Hundred Years of Cinema will not only help you get up to speed on his many cinematic contributions but also explain what Soviet montage theory is and how it changed the way we make films today.

      6 ways to get out of your creative rut

      January 23, 2018, 5:54 am
      "You can find inspiration in anything," said Paul Smith. And he's right, of course. But how about we get specific, because whether you're in a creative rut, suffering from writer's block, or just not quite cracking that brief, sometimes you need to take direct action.

      Mark Burnett and Nick Emerson on Editing Aubrey Pl

      January 20, 2018, 6:57 am
      Writer/director Jim Hosking premiered his short Renegades at Sundance in 2010 and returned to the festival in 2016 with his debut feature The Greasy Strangler. His second feature, An Evening with Beverly Luff Lin, premieres in the NEXT program at Sundance 2018. Luff Lin unites Hosking with a cast of comedy luminaries: Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement and Craig Robinson, among others. The film was edited by Mark Burnett, who also edited Greasy Strangler, and Nick Emerson (Lady Macbeth, Starred Up). Filmmaker spoke with the film’s editing team about the film’s tricky tone, which teeters between absurdist and romantic comedy, ahead of Luff Lin‘s premiere at Sundance.
