Almost (I’ll Make Ya) Famous

Almost (I’ll Make Ya) Famous | Visualize | Scoop.it

One year ago today I took a photographthat would change my life. A single frame turned my whole world upside down, and brought on a storm of media attention, praise, criticism, confusion, wonder, and doubt. After one hell of a ride this past year, I think today is a good day to finally tell this photo’s story…

Viral Reach, Engagement of Videos from Facebook Are Better Than YouTube Links?

Viral Reach, Engagement of Videos from Facebook Are Better Than YouTube Links? | Visualize | Scoop.it

SocialBakers has conducted a study pitting videos uploaded natively to Facebook versus simply providing the link from YouTube.  They found in one study that Facebook videos have a 40% higher engagement than YouTube links, and in another study, found that Facebook videos have 10 times more viral reach than YouTube links.  Now, there are a number of factors at work here that make this so, and SocialBakers speculates on why that is.  A lot of it has to do with what happens when we click on a YouTube link as opposed to watching it entirely within Facebook.

iPhone 5 and Nokia Lumia 920 face off with image stabilization test (hands-on video, updated with Galaxy S III and HTC One X)

iPhone 5 and Nokia Lumia 920 face off with image stabilization test (hands-on video, updated with Galaxy S III and HTC One X) | Visualize | Scoop.it

Nokia's Lumia 920 packs the industry's best image stabilization -- there's no questioning that -- thanks to a camera module that pairs both sensor and lens-based optical IS. The iPhone 5 also offers a notable improvement over its Apple-made predecessor on the video front, but considering that its stabilization is of the digital variety, we wouldn't expect it to top Nokia's new flagship. We had an opportunity to test both smartphones in a head-to-head demo at Nokia's research and development facility in Tampere, Finland:

Films For Action Presents: The Top 100 Documentaries Inspiring the Shift to a Sustainable Paradigm | Visualize | Scoop.it

Just imagine what could become possible if an entire city had seen just one of the documentaries below. Just imagine what would be possible if everyone in the country was aware of how unhealthy the mainstream media was for our future and started turning to independent sources in droves.

 

So take this library of films and use it. Host film screenings, share these films with friends, buy and give copies to your elected officials and school faculty. Get this information out in to your community and you will be laying the foundation for a local movement for mass societal, environmental and economic change.

The Aesthetics of High Frame Rate Cinema - Creative COW

The Aesthetics of High Frame Rate Cinema - Creative COW | Visualize | Scoop.it

The Hobbit gave us a chance to see a movie projected at 48 fps, and, unless he changes his mind, James Cameron plans to show us Avatar 2 at 60 fps. Others, including Douglas Trumbull, are talking -- and working in -- 120 fps.

Rob Legato, ASC on the set of Hugo
It's to be expected that many people who've spent a lifetime watching and making 24 fps movies object to the look, many calling it similar to TV or video. HFR Cinema simply goes against the grain. "I prefer the romanticized version of 24 fps for films," says Rob Legato, ASC. "I come from a generation that saw the difference between film and video because of frame rate. Anything that was 30 fps looked like a PBS documentary and anything in 24 fps looked like a film, which was what I was interested in."

Legato notes that "there is no evidence at the moment that everyone is clamoring to see 48 fps," and opines that 48 fps would be ideal to use for "reality show" sequences in features. "I think there's a place for it," he says. And he also realizes that not everyone has his bias for the look of 24 fps movies.

"Another generation that didn't grow up with that and that sees video games at a high frame rate may become more used to it than I did or not have that negative connotation," he says. "So I don't rule it out. I'll reserve judgment but I'm not a fan of 48 fps for a narrative format."

Douglas Trumbull
Plenty of film/TV professionals agree with Legato's assessment. But it's also a good idea to hear from people who believe that HFR adds something to the cinema experience. Take Douglas Trumbull, someone who knows a thing or two about High Frame Rate Cinema. When he developed the Showscan Film process in the late 1970s, he added a twist to the 70mm wide screen presentation format: 60 fps. In fact, Trumbull was an advocate of HFR 3D before there was a name for it.

Now, with the debut of The Hobbit from director Peter Jackson, Trumbull -- who is now working on Showscan Digital at 120 fps -- believes he sees the beginning of an exciting new era in filmmaking. "In broad strokes, my guess is that The Hobbit will be received very enthusiastically," he says. "I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that improving frame rate improves all the bad aspects of 3D."

Amazon loses USD1bn a year on video service, claims Netflix CEO - StrategyEye Digital Media

Amazon loses USD1bn a year on video service, claims Netflix CEO - StrategyEye Digital Media | Visualize | Scoop.it

Neflix CEO Reed Hastings believes Amazon could become a major player in the online video market in the future, but suggests the firm will have to invest a substantial amount before it can compete with Netflix. Speaking to Dow Jones, Hastings estimates that Amazon is losing between USD500m and USD1bn a year on its video operations, as it is forced to spend money on licensing rights and getting consumers to sign up to the service. His comments serve to highlight how difficult, and expensive, it is to get into the online video streaming space, with the likes of Hulu, Netflix and Amazon all struggling to turn a profit from their services.

 

Hastings says his figures on Amazon’s losses are based on the value of content deals that Amazon won whenever the two companies competed head to head. He believes that Amazon is splitting those licensing costs between its ‘Prime’ video service, which operates in the US and costs USD79 a month for access to its TV and film library, free two-day shipping and e-book lending, and its international operation, Lovefilm. The numbers seem relatively sensible, with Netflix itself estimating that it will have to spend USD2.1bn on content licensing over the next year.

YouTube wants to double down on mobile music videos | Visualize | Scoop.it

YouTube recently rolled out a new app for the iPhone, which is replacing Apple’s own YouTube app on iOS 6. It is expected to release a dedicated iPad app any day now. These apps mark the first time that YouTube is monetizing mobile content on iOS, which makes it possible to display music videos from Vevo and other content partners on the platform just as it has been doing on Android.

Photokina expo introduces bigger DSLR cameras

Photokina expo introduces bigger DSLR cameras | Visualize | Scoop.it

At Photokina, it's clear that the camera industry is trying to capitalize on the huge amount of interest in image capture by giving step-up photographers a whole lot of ways to jump head-first into their hobby. The industry is betting big on big cameras, hoping users will open their wallets when the novelty of Instagram begins to wear thin.

 

The most newsworthy announcements at the show have come from the biggest companies in the game: Canon and Nikon are both debuting new high-end, full-frame DSLRs -- the 6D: and D600, respectively -- though they're marketing them as "entry-level" full-frame cameras.
