Videogram Launches iOS App And Platform To Give Publishers Better Video ...
TechCrunch
The problem with most video apps is that they don't allow viewers to have much of a clue about what a video is actually like.
Alex Colombino's insight:

Negative critique of mobile video applications due to their lack in information provided by only thumbnails. Cinemacraft has developed and "built technology that scans videos and creates a pictorial summary of their content." This will help views to more efficiently scroll and filter through content, creating more of an "instagram for videos." This particular article was beneficial to me because as I am interning at a mobile video application company, learning the ins and outs to these topics will help my insight towards my job.

Horror Cinema's Most Cursed Productions

'Cursed productions' are not exclusive to horror pictures. But, it's typically horror films that garner the most attention for tumultuous circumstances surrounding their filming.
Alex Colombino's insight:

This one is just for fun. Terrifying list of horror movie sets that were known to be 'cursed' effecting both the crew and the actual sets themselves. One instance that should be noted is the request by the crew of "The Exorcist" for a priest to bless the set after it caught fire.

sfMediaProf's curator insight, April 9, 2013 5:18 PM

An interesting "stitching together" to make a time-lapse animation of Google Street view.  You can either check out the various animations already created by selecting "Featured" (Golden Gate bridge, Yosemite waterfall, etc.). Or you can create your own, by going to the map and selecting "A" as the starting point and "B" as the end.  Fascinating.
