With Diana Weynand
In the entertainment industry, I get to go behind the scenes quite often, whether I'm editing in an edit bay or consulting on set during the shoot. Going behind the scenes and being part of the process of putting a show together is as entertaining to me as watching the finished show on air.
Last month, I had the pleasure and honor to go behind the scenes of an entirely different operation… the U.S. Navy! I was invited to go aboard the USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) aircraft carrier to observe and report. And I got to take you with me! Well, virtually at least. Read all about my adventure here.
Konova 4 - Best Value For Your Money For A DSLR Shooter
By Alex Bleyer
I shoot largely on Canon DSLRs. As my business has grown, I’ve begun slowly expanding my toolkit. When I first began looking for ways to up my DSLR game, my mind went to those RedRock shoulder mounted/follow focus kits.

Tips for Multicamera Synchronization in Premiere Pro
By Gerard Tay
The Create Multicamera function in Premiere Pro is a very useful function. Besides using it to synchronise multi camera shoots, you can also use it to synchronise second system sound production. Here are some tips to get it to work better.
