The Virtual Buzz at IBC Starts to Look Real
Content Insider #486 - 360, VR Everywhere
I'd probably enjoy IBC just as much even if it weren't in Amsterdam but I sure wouldn't want to find out. Or maybe the city just looks better through 360/VR glasses because everyone at the convention centre seemed to have the suctioncup lines on their face. But the discussions at IBC - suppliers, studios, networks, filmmakers, production people - always seemed to touch on how quickly VR had come and how much further it had to go. True VR isn't "brand new" because it's been around since 1929 (Link Simulator) and the first headsets were introduced in the 1960s but now we've got affordable cameras to shoot 360 video and defining VR films. Most of the films are short right now - under 30 minutes - but it won't be long before we have a solid feature film. Read More

Singer Clara's 'Parasite' Music Video Shot with Blackmagic URSA Mini 4K by TruLove Post
Singer Clara's 'Parasite' Music Video Shot with Blackmagic URSA Mini 4K by TruLove Post
In the music video for her single "Parasite," singer Clara takes a unique approach. The song is about a girl who repeatedly tries to steal her friends' lovers, like bees who try to steal the honey bee's honey. Clara uses the music video not as a storyline for the lyrics, but as a message and a warning to the offending girl, while also expressing the feelings and confusion one goes through when trying to understand why someone would act that way.

Content Insider #481 - Not Really
If you've been following the video streams from Rio with your VR headset on you've really gotten the feeling that you are there without spending a lot of money on flights and hotel. You're also getting the feeling of being at the center of the action and the crowd without the crowd. You'll have to forgive the enthusiasm of NBC, BBC, the Olympics committee and announcers who are telling you how great the activities are in VR. It ain't. It's pretty good 360 video they're streaming to you. Ok I'm being picky about the differences but so are a lot of filmmakers who are shooting and prepping 360 and VR films. Try both...you'll feel the difference. Read More

Shooting "Savior" on URSA Mini 4.6K
Shooting
Dillon McEvoy (DP), Mike Overton (Director) and Matt Ramey (Producer) are film students at Chapman University and just completed their Junior level Advanced Production short film." And you would be hard pressed to tell the difference in quality between their film, "Savior," and a big-budget Hollywood film. To create a high quality war film is a huge undertaking. You have to get the uniforms right. Weapons and scenery have to be accurate, and you have to combine that with action scenes, VFX, physical effects, such as blood, and making sure you get the right actors that can believably inhabit the role of soldiers. And for a student film, all on a miniscule budget that would not even pay for catering on a typical Hollywood set. Read More
