Sony Announces the PMW-300

Cameras / Nate Weber

Sony announced their newest 1/2″ EXMOR 3-CMOS sensor camera, the PMW-300. The successor to Sony’s aging, but still very popular, EX3. With 50mbps 8-bit 422 internal recording over the EX3′s 8-bit 420, this is a much demanded bump in specs that won’t go unnoticed. It will also get an update with XAVC in 2014. Other upgrades include a new higher resolution display, 3.5″ 960×540 (same DPI and size as the iPhone 4/4S). It shoots...Read More

The New Pro can be a Mac Cube

Just the Cut / Nate Weber

We all heard Apple is doing “something really different” with the new Mac Pro. That’s a terrifying prospect after what they did with Final Cut Pro. But I have thought a bit on this subject and welcome the change. I have long since stopped personally finding the Mac Pros bang-for-buck worth the money, but I do know that is only because most of what I do is straight forward NLE cutting, not much after...Read More

How I Share and Send Files With Clients – A New Edition to My Arsenal – ‘MinBox’

Just the Cut / Nate Weber

As an editor who usually works remotely, a big part of my job is delivering proofs to clients digitally and quickly. I’m always looking for easier ways to share files with clients and friends, I don’t have a crazy fast or even that reliable of internet (the San Fernando Valley doesn’t offer anything between consumer and super high-end ultra-expensive connections), so I like solutions that minimize risks. Dropbox is my favorite choice, it’s relatively...Read More

For those of you who don’t know, Cinegear is a mini-NAB that has bars setup between the booths on the Paramount backlot and 2 stages. It rarely has anything new announced and this year was no different. However, things were a bit different this year. There was a few major themes to this years event. GoPros were huge, DSLRs were dwindling, Sony...Read More

Premiere Pro gets Lumetri Deep Color Engine and a boost from Speedgrade

Just the Cut / Nate Weber

Speedgrade was a bit rough around the edges when it came to integration with Premiere in CS6 but it’s looking much more cozy with Premiere in Creative Cloud. Adobe introduces Lumetri Deep Color Engine, a new tool to help editors get GPU optimized color control right inside Premiere. You can apply one of the existing presets, LUTs, or saved Looks from Speedgrade. It’s integration with Speedgrade makes it a more effective temporary grading tool...Read More

Audience Interpretation on Filmmaking and Storytelling

Just the Cut / Nate Weber

I love talking with people about their view on shows and movies. Everyone interprets things differently and finds different elements that stand out to them. It’s amazing how different 2 people can view the same thing. It’s also amazing how much you can control perspective through style, editing and tone. I love remixes for this reason, it can change your perspective on the original content. A fun example: I already had that nostalgic feeling...Read More

MicroGAFFER: Pocket-size gaffer tape for the Modern Production

Nate Weber / Production

Productions are getting smaller. Smaller cameras, smaller crews, stolen shots on public areas, are all commonplace. Gaffer tape is getting smaller too. MicroGAFFER is a product we’ve all kind of wanted but didn’t know how to ask for. Enough tape to get a quick job done, but it won’t weigh you down or bring suspicion to you if you are shooting run-n-gun in public areas. It comes with 4 rolls in a pack, various...Read More
