Using Smash Cuts for Dramatic or Comedic Moments
Rather than just endlessly use pre-packaged vanilla transitions or simple straight cuts why not branch out a little!
In previous posts I have covered using audio along with straight cuts to create bespoke transitions but there are many, many other things you can do.
One of those is the smash cut.

Had it with all the stress of setting up a live stream? We review the LiveU Solo, a live streaming device that is so powerful that professionals use it but also easy enough to be used by technophobes.
Live streaming is now becoming incredibly popular. The advent of speedy internet is now allowing anyone with a stable, and moderately fast connection to create live broadcasts to a worldwide audience. Spanning everything from simply talking to social media followers while on a lunch, through to breaking news stories that might otherwise be buried or missed by mainstream media, all the way through to full on multi-camera studio setups rivalling anything on tv, live streaming has opened up a lot of new avenues for video use on the internet.

If you need to be able to send uncompressed 10bit 422 HD video from multiple cameras then you should look into the new system that I got from CineGears.
I have been testing out a lot of different wireless video systems over the years from all of the known and less known brands in the industry. One brand I personally like is CineGears. I’ve used their previous wireless video kits and also a few of their wireless follow focus systems without any issues. This time I started using a new kit they offer that lets you transmit 2 and even 4 video signals from multiple transmitters into one receiver.
The new system that I got is the CineGears Two in One 2000M Full-HD Wireless Video Transmission Kit. I also paired it with the large panel antenna from CineGears which will extend the range of this wireless video system up to 3300 feet. As you can see in my tests I didn’t even get to test it to it’s full range because it was simply way too far for me to go that far away. I really did not see the need to ever need to be able to transmit video at such a range. This whole kit will work great if you are doing a typical film production but even more importantly when you are working on a live event like a sport event where you need multiple cameras in different parts of a stadium to send the signal to the video switcher for live editing.
