    Gotham Girls Roller Derby Goes Live W/ Blackmagic

    June 16, 2011, 10:59 am
    Milpitas, CA – June 15, 2011 – Blackmagic Design today announced the ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher and ATEM 1 M/E Broadcast Panel are being used by the Gotham Girls Roller Derby League for live production of the league's 2011 matches.
    New York City’s only all female, do it yourself, skater operated roller derby league, the Gotham Girls have
    become one of the quickest growing sports leagues in New York City. The ability to provide high quality live
    production and post match rebroadcasting has become a cornerstone of the league’s success. Derby matches
    are shot in HD, and each match generates a live video webcast live streamed internationally on the Derby News
    Network portal (www.derbynewsnetwork.com), a rebroadcast on NYC life (the flagship station of the official TV,
    radio, and online network of New York City) and videos and DVDs for post match distribution.



    ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher is used at each match in conjunction with up to six cameras capturing tight
    shots of players, wider area views following the "pack," and announcer and crowd shots. The league also uses
    ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher for in match graphic overlays and effects, displaying statistics and combining
    different visual elements through upstream and downstream keyers for an incredible in person experience.
    Following matches, the combined HD line cut from the system is used as the base edit for rebroadcast and DVD
    development.



    "League members and fans are passionate about the sport, and it is our dream to nurture derby’s growth via well
    produced content. In order for it to grow, we need to pull together high quality live production and broadcasts
    that capture the fun of the game as well as educate viewers on rules and strategies. The ATEM is a huge part
    of helping us realize our dreams for the Gotham and the sport as a whole," said Tammy Walters, Executive
    Producer, of the Gotham Girls Roller Derby televised show on NYCTV.



    Continued Walters, "We needed a live switcher and control panel that was reliable, versatile, affordable and
    easy to use. We were thrilled to find that the ATEM fits the bill. Also, the ability to integrate live score stat
    graphics via custom third party software, Rinxter (www.rinxter.com), was a major plus."



    Technical Director / Producer Franklin Zitter added: "With the large number of inputs and outputs, along with all
    the other pro features that the ATEM 1 M/E offers, we’ve been able to easily and affordably integrate it into our
    production and make the jump to HD. We are constantly thinking of new ways we can configure the switcher to
    bring our show to the next level. Even members of our video crew with no prior technical experience are able to
    easily be trained in setup and operation of the ATEM."

      Schoonmaker sculpts ‘Silence’

      January 23, 2017, 6:09 pm
      The legendary editor is sitting in the Midtown Manhattan office where she cut Scorsese’s latest, his deeply felt spiritual epic about Jesuit priests in feudal Japan. Schoonmaker sits in between her monitors and those for Scorsese, added about a year ago so he could sit even closer to Schoonmaker while they worked. It makes for a jumble of screens, especially when the one devoted to Turner Classic movies is factored in. “This used to be quite a beautiful room,” Schoonmaker says with only mild regret.

      Oscar Cliffhanger: ACE Awards contenders

      January 23, 2017, 8:00 am
      Tom Cross won the Oscar for Best Film Editing two years ago for Whiplash” and collaborates again with that film’s writer/director Damien Chazelle on “La La Land.” Cross is heavily favored to win a bookend Academy Award for this return engagement. That’s no surprise, given the ingenious way he which he edits the dance routines throughout the film and, in particular, the closing sequence. Cross has been nominated in the Comedy/Musical category at the ACE Eddies as well as at the BAFTAs.

      CG Garage #106 | Kevin Mack – Shape Space VR

      January 23, 2017, 7:59 am
      Kevin Mack’s skill lies in applying scientific theory to three dimensional art and visual effects. He shared an Oscar for his VFX in “What Dreams May Come,” used computer algorithms to create the neural pathways of Edward Norton’s brain in “Fight Club,” and, more recently, 3D printed seemingly impossible organic forms. Now, Kevin’s mashing science and art in virtual reality with two titles: “Zenspace” for Samsung’s Gear VR, and “Blortasia” for HTC’s Vive from his new company Space Space VR

      10 Great Edits in Film that Inspire Me

      These are 10 of the most important edits that have inspired me. It's not an all-time list. When I say "edit", I mean a single transition or a montage in a scene or sequence, not the editing of a film as a whole.
