    Well, I'm old (60) and I think you are becoming a little paranoid about these things. I've got a science background and my current roles often put me in charge of health and safety aspects of...

    Really? That would surprise me greatly. How do they get permission for songs not even sung? Somebody got the setlist in advance and done the clearances? Here in the UK, we do actually have a system...

    A production company with a camera and a few bits really isn't a production company - it's one guy and his kit.

    My business started part-time in 1994, and was spare time before that, and full...

    You are asking the impossible from the light out to the light in. The workable solution would be - if it needs to repeat at different times of day a change of shooting angle - a repeated outside...

    Manufacturers generally will permit you to use their images, and often send you hi=res ones, once they know what they are for. Using them and 'assuming' they will be happy is just too risky. I've...

    Would people watch a single camera video? More importantly, have you ever tried the clearances for this. I tried it on a one day festival with 50 minute sets from a range of music acts, some fully...

    The Mini is a winner really, giving you the option to spend more - but I'd question 4K. Why the expense of 4K cameras if it's just internal distribution. The real killer of these installations is...

    Of course - legacy systems that do certain things don't need to be upgraded. I'm still programming radios with an XP laptop, but EVERYTHING else I do involves constant upgrades, constant new plugins...

    I think that we now must accept that cyber crime, and the legal cyber stalking we all get is now normal. So you have two choices. Update regularly and take advantage of a huge firms skill in keeping...

    I've had lots of trouble with my computers when working away and internet was flaky - Some of my versions of adobe products just refused to work when the internet was just dreadfully slow - nothing...

    She's quite a famous aerialist and no doubt competent to do what she's doing - I think my concerns are more at the people who are running the stunt. In circus, most of their work is rigged and...

    She eventually had a safety line, clipped up and not tested before the lift. It looked too like she had a simple belt on. You'd not get away with that in the UK. I've just finished a job here with...

    I don't think VHS or betamax had 'a look' - at all. They just had a low resolution compared to the difference with SD, which just looked like broadcast on your TV. There was a definable line...

    The Phillips ones I've seen are rather good at RGB and all colours between, apart from white which is a rather strange colour - a sort of dirty white. Not really yellow, but a rather unpredictable...

    One's a shotgun the other a cardioid both use the preamp in the recording device. The shotgun is not an upgrade, it's a different type of mic that can work further away, and needs more careful...

    We have the same situation in the UK as a whole with April as a key date - BUT - only it seems in some work sector areas. Production companies are doing their best but faced with a sea of genuinely...

    Speed shortens render times, and memory and speed make complex video sequences smooth. The processor speed is OK for HD, so maybe spend the money on the graphics card, which is more important as...

    Well - I have two Pentax DSLR, used Pentax for years - and one has very nice colour rendition from stage lighting and the other sucks! I cannot make one look like the other no matter how I tweak...

    Search on Ebay - the old S-VHS with mini DV recorders come up quite often. Firewire out, so you need to get a card for the computer if you don't use firewire, but the quality is actually fine....

    One actor I worked with, was, a few years before, a convicted murderer. He learnt his acting skills in prison. I had a great respect for him, and enjoyed our time working together. As far as I was...

    More to the point - will the pilot and the aircraft operator allow you to do this? Most pilots already have the necessary equipment for aerial images, but will baulk at allowing you to add things...

    How do you tell if something was shot anamorpic if the transfer to video has been done? Surely it's only anamorphic up to the editor?

    The 13" MacBook Pro machines have very limited socketry. I just find it annoying there's no SD card socket, no socket for a monitor, no socket for a network cable and as a result everything is...
