"Noka: keeper of worlds"
Explores the Dark Side of Caribbean Folklore with Help from the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
Trinidadian born filmmaker Shaun Escayg has worked in VFX for more than a decade. He loves to create and manipulate images, especially when it comes to anything supernatural, as he is a huge monster film fan. For inspiration, he often draws upon his own heritage and love of Caribbean folklore, which has a variety of dark creatures in its beliefs, myths, tales and practices. In this type of folklore, the supernatural exists side by side with humans, and Shaun decided to explore this theme in his short film "Noka, keeper of worlds" which he wrote and directed. In order to bring the Caribbean's dark creatures to life, Shaun relied on his expertise in VFX, but when it came to capturing the live action, he needed a very specific camera to support his workflow.

Protecting Content
Let's face it people are uncomfortable with change even though it seems we have to make changes every day. It's even worse when you've got some of the greatest content you ever shot/created stored on devices spread around the office. So what do you do to ensure it's protected, available, safe from prying eyes? You decide to move to 20, 36, more TB of RAID (random array of independent drives) storage. First choice is hardware RAID because it's been around for a long time but now there's a strong option - software RAID - and it's time to understand the pros/cons of each. Read More

Documentary Editors Rock 'Filmage' Post Production with AJA Io XT
Documentary Editors Rock 'Filmage' Post Production with AJA Io XT
"Filmage: The Story of DESCENDENTS/ALL" began as a passion project for a group of creatives working at Dallas-based post house CharlieUniformTango (CUT), and quickly evolved into a full-fledged documentary production. Within four years, the film's directors Deedle LaCour and Matt Riggle, along with editors Justin Wilson and James Rayburn, had traveled the world, combining a love for old-school punk music with filmmaking chops to deliver an indie flick that recounts the history and influence of punk rock legends the Descendents. The film features a compilation of present-day interviews with band members and industry influencers, fan video submissions and archived tour media. Editorial for the film required a portable and flexible workflow, for which Rayburn turned to AJA's Io XT Thunderbolt-enabled professional video device for on-the-go I/O. Read More

Blackmagic Cinema Camera and 686 Technical Apparel
686 Technical Apparel has always been about providing innovative, fashionable outerwear and technical apparel inspired from the same Los Angeles street culture and mountain lifestyle that it was founded on. When cinematographer Ian Post was hired to shoot cinematography for the brand, he knew his gear needed to be as reliable, durable and resilient, as well as able to withstand the elements, as the outerwear he was shooting. Not only does Ian's camera have to work in such harsh conditions, but it also has to deliver stunning footage that captures the snowy landscape as well as highlights the star of the shoots, 686 outerwear.
