    Goodbye Mr Spock

    Leonard Nimoy, the i beloved actor who had a worldwide following for his portrayal of the ever logical and resolute Mr. Spock on Star Trek, passed away on Friday in his home in Los Angeles. Nimoy was 83.

    He is survived by his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, who confirmed his death was caused by end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nimoy had been fighting this disease after years of smoking, despite having given up the habit three decades ago.

    Condolences have begun to pour in from around the world, as a saddened fanbase recalled, somewhat ironically, the humanity that Nimoy brought to the half-Vulcan he played. Besides acting, Nimoy’s pursuits included photography, poetry and music, but he will always be remembered for the iconic character of Mr. Spock, a pointy-eared Second Officer with an unmistakable hand signal, a formidable Vulcan nerve pinch, and even his own catch phrase: “Live long and prosper”—a motto Nimoy himself embodied.

      Straight Outta Compton The Movie

      Straight Outta Compton

      In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., this documentary tells the astonishing story of how these young men revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.

            Introducing Bouquet Event Productions

            Introducing DJ Jett.

            Jett

            Jett Dunlap

            Jett Dunlap was born and raised in Los Angeles California. He started his TV career as a young boy in commercials. As he got older he worked with local news channels, MTV and other projects in front of the camera as well as behind it. Jett worked in the TV industry on such shows as Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond, Drew Carey, Two and a Half Men, That 70s Show, and the list goes on.

            In an effort to sharpen his sales and marketing skills,  in his early twenties Jett worked with at&t and quickly rose through the ranks. One of Jett’s biggest accomplishments was getting to be a part of the team that launched the first 3 versions of the iPhone. One of the reasons he set his sights on hosting for web and TV was so he could continue to work with AT&T while pursuing his greater passion.

            Holding a degree in Television and Film, Jett’s knowledge and talent has been steadily honed through many production hours in front of and behind the camera. Jett began work in the TV and Internet department of entertainment startup iGem Productions in early 2003. Since that time, Jett’s conviction and belief in a “forward-thinking vision” has brought him to start his own project of developing an internet TV platform. This is how JD247.com and runhollywood.com were launched, providing videos and content for all things LA and entertainment . Originally debuting Los Angeles hot spots, Jett’s video coverage evolved into hosting on multiple platforms, including major red carpet events, artist interviews, and exclusive tours of California landmarks and recreation sites. As a side endeavor, Jett also produced and acted in a number of award-winning independent films.

            Their combined expertise has allowed them to develop  a comprehensive wedding and entertainment business that has the very best in Sound, Lighting and Film.

                The Proposal Story

                What do I say about the biggest question I have ever asked in my life?
                  I woke up at 5:30 am; Gina and I got ready for my brother Stephen to pick us up and drive to Disneyland.
                Stephen got to our house and I had to figure out where to hide the ring; the box was far too big to hide in my pocket. I shoved the ring in my garment bag, and hoped there would be no reason for Gina to look there.
                Only my brother, my childhood best friend Chris, and my mom knew my master plan. I asked Gina’s dad for his blessing the day before (I knew on my drive back from his house that it was real, no going back after asking the girl’s dad!).
                To understand what this day meant to me, I have to give you a little background: Disneyland is a very special place for me. I had a season pass from the time I was thirteen up until a few years back. Ever since I came out of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, saw the door marked with the 33, and asked a cast member what it was, it has been a dream of mine to be invited in. It was only 48 hours earlier that I even found out I was going to 33 for my birthday (a shout out for my Mom, who worked her connections to make this dream possible).
                After a few fun-filled hours in the park, we all went back to the car to change into our dress clothes and made our way back to New Orleans Square. At 12:50 I lifted the brass plate on the wall of the doorframe and rang. After we announced our arrival, the host ushered us into an oak elevator.

                I was starting to sweat at this point; I had no idea the layout of this place. We took the lift to the second floor, where we were guided to our table. We ordered off a menu that had no prices (pretty fancy!), got our food and moved on to dessert.

                  Will DSLRs replace video cameras? DSLR247.com & Interview with Vincent Laforet

                   

                  What I have experienced in my own production.

                  • Video has fast focus and can zoom with out fine tuning, this is key for red carpets if you don’t want to be loosing focus every time your subject movies.
                  • DSLR has breath taking depth of field and is the best choice in independent film making or any project that has the benefit of blocking.

                   

                  So why are so many people moving away from dedicated video cameras and using DSLR?

                  “I use DSLR for my video work for a few reasons. Firstly it gives you manual control over the image that no other cameras in its price range really offer (certainly the 550D price range anyway),” says freelance video journalist Adam Westbrook.

                  “You can control the aperture, the shutter speed, focus, ISO and frame size. ‘Traditional’ cameras that do this cost upwards of $5,00. Cheaper camcorders don’t offer this control.”

                  Westbrook has been shooting professional work on his Canon 5D for the past two years and he’s produced some brilliant video as well as becoming an expert in filming in this way.

                   

                  Vincent Laforet Interview NAB 2013 Movi

                  Host Jett Dunlap interviews Director Cinematographer Vincent Laforet at this years NAB convention in Las Vegas and reveals what he thinks is the next game changer since the Canon Mark 2.

                   

                   

                  Drawbacks

                  He’s in good company – On-Par productions, based in Cardiff, has experts in making film for commercial clients including Carlsberg, The Guardian and Fujitsu. Director of the company, Toby Cameron, films his work on DSLR because he prefers the picture and the HD standard fulfills the requirements for his work. However, he’s well aware of the drawbacks:

                  “Recording decent sound straight on to the camera is very difficult. If I had a pound for every time I saw a really well shot DSLR film, but the sound was terrible I’d be a lot better off,” he told us, “We use a separate recorder and then sync up the footage afterwards, we use software called PluralEyes that syncs it up by using sound waves, it doesn’t always work though.”

                  Cameron also notes that while SLRs are a really useful tool for the television and film industry, he can’t see it becoming an industry standard.

                  “TV is moving towards more HD content that has to be shot with a camera that captures at 50mb/s and Canon SLRs capture at about 35mb/s. Some super geeks have hacked the Panasonic GH2 camera and have got it capturing at 70mb/s, but you wouldn’t see a broadcaster using a hacked camera.

                  “The next wave of cameras that has just come out mix the best features of DSLR’s and video camera like the Panasonic AF101, Sony F3 and now the Canon c300 (which captures at 50mb/s).”

                  Limits

                  Cameron’s thinking is backed up by a BBC White Paper published just before the public release of the Canon EOS 5D MK II. Technicians stopped their testing of the pre-production model of the Canon 5D MK II at a very early stage because it failed aliasing pattern tests and “the results were not encouraging.”

                  Adam Westbrook explains, “they don’t have manual audio control (without buying an expensive bit of kit) so most users resort to recording their audio separately and syncing it up afterwards which is a pain. Some cameras have issues with something called ‘rolling shutter’ which can distort the picture in certain situations. Almost every DSLR camera I know has a shooting limit of 12 minutes, which means you have to stop and start your footage regularly.”

                  That said, following some of the bugs being worked out, the Beeb has been experimenting more and more with DSLR and compact system cameraslike this short report shot on a Sony NEX 5N, as has Al Jazeera… andCNN. It looks like more and more TV and journalism producers are choosing DSLR, with this week’s Oscar nominations including adocumentary short shot on a 5D Mark II.

                  With the introduction of cameras such as the Canon C300, it’ll be interesting to see how traditional video and stills cameras converge – watch this space.
