Conceiving a Dying Breed
Rod Morris, Writer and Producer, Michael Boughen, Writer and Producer
Another freaky Aussie horror film, again shot on digital HD. The impact that sound, music and editing play in the finished polish of these films is marked. Considering the teaser trailer was over $100K and the full film $3mil, Rod stressed the importance of the trailer - letting everyone know what is being built and funded.
Music Video VFX with Adobe Production Premium CS4
Jon Barrie, aJBproductions
Seeing CS4 in action and the dynamic linking is inspiring. I think video and integration may well be something I could concentrate on over the summer. Doing video edits and effects with Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop and nw Media Encoder and Mocha - awesome capability.
The newer file passing between Final Cut Pro and Premiere via XML will make working on projects that span these two packages...

A different look at digital cinima - this time by the team that created Harvey Crumpet who have created a digital workflow for stop motion which Aardman are also adopting for their next feature (using Canon digital still cameras etc).
