Our blog has been quiet this past summer and with good reason, we'e been busy! 2016 has been a fantastic year of telling stories and working on some incredible projects. While the year isn't over just yet, I wanted to take a moment to look at some of what we've worked on that may be of interest and some cool technology advancements that we've made this year.
In January we completed an extensive rebuild of our IT infrastructure. It was a project that was a long time coming. In this article we're going to briefly touch on how we upgraded our network and then our Post-Production Manager Julia is going to go over our editing workflow and new SAN/NAS environment.
Getting Your Shot
As a filmmaker, you normally have one chance to capture a moment. So making sure your footage is usable on set is key. To combat under or overexposed footage, a DP has two main tools at his disposal: your waveform monitor and your zebra stripes. Both measure and display luminance, but for different purposes and in different ways. We cover when and why you use these tools on set, as well as the impact RAW footage and cinema cameras have had on capturing images.
In 2011, Creative Liquid worked with the U.S. Military's Joint Task Force CapMed to produce a video to assist staff with the transition from Walter Reed National Army Medical Center to two new facilities. Our crews worked on location at Walter Reed in Washington, DC, Bethesda Naval Hospital in Bethesda, MD and Ft. Belvoir in Virginia. This short video includes a professional voice-over, video recorded on location and motion design elements.
