Creating a Web Video Studio | WVR How To Earlier this year, Crain Communications decided to set up an Internet video production studio in the New York offices of its Advertising Age publication. I was assigned to organize the new facility to support Ad Age's new online video news operations as well as the video projects of other New York Crain publications. Luckily, I wasn't a complete novice at this. Editing equipment back then involved tape decks that were damned near as big as Volkswagens, "portable" cameras that were three feet long and weighed 40 pounds, and equipment prices that were over the moon. The publishers and journalists who are today joining the migration to online video content can thank their stars for the digital revolution that has so reduced the size, complexity and price of creating and running a basic video studio. LightsThe first step in my Crain/Ad Age project was to find a suitable room within the two floors the company occupies in a midtown skyscraper.

"I Moved to LA to Work in Animation" new 70-page comic |Home Is Where The Internet Is I moved to LA in 2015 to storyboard for animation studios. I get a lot of questions from artists who are interested in making similar career moves themselves.

Blog - Your Outdoor Living Experts Greenhouses can be covered in one of three materials. This includes glass, polycarbonate, and plastic film. Each one of these materials has pros and cons associated with it. So before you decide on a certain greenhouse structure or shape, consider the covering. All coverings should go through a checklist that includes cost, ease of repair, durability, weight, how much light goes through the material and how much heat is released through the material.

Shot Analysis: Jungle Book Sequence Part 1 | Art, Animation & Film Analysis by James Chiang The first 3 shots of this 16 scene sequence where Baloo and Mowgli meet for the first time in Walt Disney’s 1967 classic, The Jungle Book. Let’s begin our 5 Part analysis of Frank Thomas’ and Ollie Johnston’s marvelous work in this portion of The Jungle Book: Scene 1: A Lesson in broken rhythm and natural action. I love the unplanned feeling of this shot even though it’s clearly well-designed in terms of layout, camera move and action choreography. Throughout this shot Baloo moves from screen right to left, but does so in an uninhibited fashion — moving forward, then back and changing his gait and gestures as he flows with the musical tempo inside his head. Ollie’s work (at least it looks like it’s his) is often very intuitive; his characters behave in a far more sincere and natural manner than other animators. When the shot ends, your attention halts and flows along with Baloo’s. Shot 2: A lesson in simplicity and clarity Scene 3: A lesson in personality animation and texture
