This was a test to compare the new profile created by Technicolor specifically for digital cinema. The black detail and highlights are the main focus of this profile, and it definitely works for being able to get a solid palette to work with in Apple Color. Though the file is still limiting because it originated from an H264 file, this will be the way we do production and post moving forward. A special thanks to Technicolor for getting under the hood of the Canon 5dMKII and really pushing it to its full extent.

I did a little walk through of the Tangent Devices vWave App, so people can see the virtual control service Tangent has created, and how it integrates with Apple Color. The idea of a virtual Color Console has been nagging at me for some time, I was about to purchase the App SDK, and the Apple Color SDK, just so I could figure out how to do it myself. Luckily Tangent beat me to it, and used they’re own plugins within Apple Color to properly take controls of the primary in tab. This is an awesome App, and I think you should check it out. You will also have to download this for your MAC to communicate with the App. Tangent 3.8 Plugin As much as I enjoyed the experience, it still doesn’t compare to that of an actual tangent device the ‘Wave’.

On December 2nd,2010 Asylum Artists held a Jazz night with Toronto Jazz Legend Archie Alleyne and his Evolution of Jazz Ensemble. Over the fall months we were busy producing, and developing a website for the Archie Alleyne Scholarship Fund (AASF). Through our efforts with the website, social media, and the jazz night we were able to help raise over $7000 for the fund, and help more underprivileged youth find a voice in the music community, and get the proper training that they need to get into post-secondary and to find their place in the world of music.
If you would like to help contribute to the fund visit www.aasf.ca for more information. Special thanks to all of our sponsors.
