Princess Kimbra: Bringing Disney Magic to Life with the Blackmagic URSA
Princess Kimbra: Bringing Disney Magic to Life with the Blackmagic URSA
Once upon a time, a visual effects artist and a Grammy-award winning singer got together to make music video magic and Snow White was reborn. The tale begins when Adam C. Sager, a Portland, Oregon-based VFX supervisor and director, met with Kimbra, a New Zealand-born recording artist, and decided to honor Disney for the inspiration it had given both artists throughout the years. Kimbra had just recorded "I'm Wishing," the song from the classic "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" movie, for a Disney tribute album, We Love Disney, Australia. Blending reality with Disney magic, Sager created a music video that inserted Kimbra directly into the classic animated film as the heroine Snow White and wicked Evil Queen. Read More

Colorist Mark Todd Osborne Navigates a Child's Fantasy
"Audi TT: Reality? Check." The recent national ad campaign for the Audi TT from MediaCom, the agency behind the concept, features the iconic sports car racing through rugged terrain and busy cities alike. The spot enters the mind of a child, and as he races his toy car around a track and imagines a full-throttle adventure of challenging terrain and jaw-dropping stunts, the Audi TT achieves it in real life. Mirroring the boy's movements, the spot cuts to real life shots of the Audi TT racing on the edges of cliffs, through dense forests of tall pines, around jagged boulders and hairpin turns, as well as through the nighttime streets of San Francisco, weaving through trollies, traffic and tractor trailers.

Content Insider #460 - Producing Dreams
I'm a slow learner. It dawned on my at NAB we differentiate between filmmakers and indie filmmakers. But when studios cut back to their content buying/selling/distribution core everyone in the industry (ok almost) is an independent. Shooter, production, post, audio, special effects, colorists, everything. And guess what...they're darn good at it. They do it with a desire to tell a story - audio and visual. They have developed one of the finest coopetive industries you can find anywhere - working to tell their story and helping others tell theirs. Gawd I love this industry! Read More

Rivalry on the Ice
Rivalry on the Ice
There is almost no rivalry in professional sports that matches the intensity of one in the National Hockey League. It is not just team against team, but city against city competing against each other in rivalries that have been passed down through generations. Which is one of the reasons why the Winter Classic has become a huge success. Every year, the NHL highlights hockey the way it used to be played: Outside, open to the elements, and in front of thousands of screaming fans. All while featuring teams that have forged generations of bitter rivals. One of these heated rivalries is between the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins. These two teams are members of the "Original Six", the first professional hockey teams in the NHL, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. Read More
