YouTube Stars are now more popular than Hollywood celebs among Millenials

"Angelina Jo-WHICH? Samuel L. Jack-WHO? Benicio del-YOU'RE-GOING-TO-NEED-TO-BE-MORE-­SPECIFIC? That's what America's teens are saying right now about our precious, precious adult human movie stars!

 

A new survey commissioned by Variety found that "the five most influential figures among Americans ages 13-18 are all YouTube faves, eclipsing mainstream celebs including Jennifer Lawrence and Seth Rogen." The top five!!! .....

 

That sound you hear is one million marketing executives leaving marketing-executive-shaped holes in their office walls."

Sempre sul tema della scelta del microfono giusto. Un post più completo del precedente.

Mark Weil's curator insight, October 12, 2015 10:16 PM

wonderful input

Mark Weil's curator insight, October 15, 2015 4:09 AM

I like that the speaker Will was straightforward and thorough with explaining different mic options and how to apply different techniques  to help the recording process. It interested me that Will demonstrated the muff or "dead cat" showing that the usual use is for wind noise reduction but it may be used for reducing noise in certain vocal overtones.

Learn DSLR Basics In A First-Person Video Game - CameraSim 3D

Learn DSLR Basics In A First-Person Video Game - CameraSim 3D | Arts Independent | Scoop.it

Photography newbie? CameraSim 3D teaches basics through first-person video gaming.

 

Thanks to the 3D game engine that the software is based upon, it can simulate not only all the basic DSLR functions including ISO, aperture, shutter speed, and exposure priority mode, but there will also be the option to use a tripod, change white balance, use exposure compensation, and turn the flash on and off. According to CameraSim’s website, the software, which is scheduled to appear in mid-2014, can accurately replicate ISO grain, depth-of-field blur, motion blur, and exposure based on the camera’s settings.

Robin Good's curator insight, April 15, 2014 6:52 AM



In this SxSW set of video interviews captured by Wipster (a collaborative video review and approval service) with some of the "experts" in the online video publishing field, you can hear most of what you already know and expect from the future of video: 4K, real-time editing, effects, 3D, small screens and more. 

What instead emerges as the real challenge though, is to realize that no matter what kind of tools and services you use, the difficult part is to have a good story and to learn how to tell it on video.


Tools are great and easy indeed, but they don't make anyone a capable storyteller instantly. This is what we really need to work on.


No need to view all 12+ minutes of the video. Just check the first and the last interview in this clip and you will get the real meat.  



Insightful. Informative. 7/10
