Help my very talented friend David Jacombs promote and finish his film Ermon County

Help my friend and former college classmate David Jacombs finish his film called
Ermon County . It's a sci-fi thriller and a great film but it needs your help to push it over the top.
Here is a link to the Ermon County  page for more info about the film as well as how to donate to help polish the post production and help it reach the audience it deserves.


The latest footage from the Blackmagic Pocket Camera

As the first Blackmagic Pocket Cameras begin to ship in the next few days I thought I would post the latest Pocket Camera footage from a pair of Auckland photographers called A Couple of Night Owls

Check out the embedded video below. A small taste to wet the appetite until we all get our own hands on the little beast in the coming days or weeks.

Very cool stabilizer plugin for FCP, FCP X and Adobe Premiere

A company called CoreMelt has very cool stabilizing software that may interest users looking to get rid of DSLR rolling shutter or just to simply stabilize shaky shots. Some of the test footage they have up on their site is very impressive, especially when it comes to handheld shots.

CoreMelt is claiming that it is the fastest way to analyze and stabilize your footage. Many of the demo footage they have up is very intriguing. They claim it is better than the built-in stabilization in FCP X with less zooming and reduced rolling shutter artefacts.

Here is the website for more info: Lock & Load

Embedded are some videos that demonstrate Lock & Load in action:
