On this page and the next you will find my CyberLink PowerDirector 17 review covering what’s new and improved followed by a run through of the programs mains features.
As much as possible in this review I have tried to restrict myself to just covering the important points but each year that task becomes more and more difficult.
Consumer level video editing… Read more…
Subscribe to EOSHD on YouTube here It was a great occasion to enjoy some of Photokina with Dave Altizer. This video was an experiment in many ways, to plant a seed for more EOSHD YouTube content. I hope you enjoy the start of EOSHD TV, and let’s see how it goes in the future when I rope more unlucky people in front of the camera and come up with more content (the channel won’t just be interviews). We talk about a range of camera-nerd stuff in the video, not least of all that’s on the table in front of us. …
Someone I know was shooting the screen of their iPad and iPhone with a camera for tutorials, so I showed him this trick to record the screens, even while shooting video. http://bit.ly/SubscribeToBasicFilmmaker
I find this a great way to show iPhone and iPad apps, usage, tutorials, support, helping the technologically challenged, and recording a recording of your recording. 🙂
Only a handful of bands truly command attention and analysis when one of their songs enters a scene. Radiohead is undoubtedly one of these bands. Sure, two of their key members are successful film composers and their unique sound definitely lends itself to cinema, but it’s more than that.
Radiohead’s music is hard to define. It weaves in and out of various genres; it’s distant yet comforting; it’s harsh yet beautiful and poetic. But maybe most importantly, Radiohead’s music makes us think. Listen to any random track and you can immediately tell that an extraordinary amount of thought went into every single note and word. When one of these songs accompanies a scene, this thoughtfulness bleeds into the narrative. In short, Radiohead’s songs are the keys to opening doors that filmmakers didn’t think they could open.
If you’re as fascinated as we are about how a great composer can elevate a film, don’t miss our “Score Auteur” series, featuring Radiohead’s own Jonny Greenwood, Hans Zimmer, and Trent Reznor. And follow up those great videos with our article on the aesthetic of the late, great Jóhann Jóhannsson.

I say “bad news” because that means I have to do another updated review of the whole thing.
Given my inherent laziness I am sure you understand my position!

MAKING VIDEOS – Could this be the Basic of all Basics?
Get ready folks but it’s only fair to warn you that I am about to embark on a longish ranty kind of blurb here in support of the video below.
Running this website as I do I get a lot of questions from people from all over the place on many aspects of shooting and editing videos.
There is one point that seems to… Read more…
If you asked that question just a few years ago, most people would have looked at you as if you were insane. But now, things have evolved, and it might be time to reconsider if vertical video has a serious place among professionals.
On a dark and stormy night (love that opener) I had this thought -“If I were to strip away all the technical expertise used to create a movie, film, or video, is anything left?” The answer is YES! http://bit.ly/SubscribeToBasicFilmmaker
