Tangent Devices’ vWave App for the iPad

[youtube clip_id=”lKurP-wHN88″]

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’.

AASF.ca Website Launch and the EOJ Ensemble Jazz Night

[vimeo clip_id=”24824630″ width=”600″ height=””]

We put together a short video to finish off the launch of the website for the Archie Alleyne Scholarship Fund (AASF). Through our efforts with the website, social media, and the jazz night held on December 2nd, 2010 @ the Asylum Artists studio we were able to help raise over $7500 for the fund.  We are now able to 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.

“The Ripple Effect of Digital and Analog in Film”

Ridiculous Formats

‘Like insects toward a bright light, humans have gravitated towards technology, quickly forgetting about the formats of the past like laser disc, beta, VHS, and now DVD. But throughout the whole process the content itself hasn’t changed. If you have a good story and plot, you’ve got yourself some potential to make a great film.  So when will we stop the great search for the next big thing in technology and how it will advance film?’

Proximity @ The Asylum Studio

Today we were working on an interactive production with Proximity. After a great morning of shooting, and some beautiful footage. We sat down and had a nice Italian meal before wrapping for the day. Nothing better than some fun and food.

My apologies to our Post Production Supervisor/ Sr. Editor Chris Reesor, I was so excited to get back to my plate. I didn’t frame him correctly. 1,2,3, CHEESE!
