The successful online video-sharing platform Vimeo has opened the gates of its new “video-on-demand” service, paving the way for independent filmmakers to market their work easily.
The video above is vimeo’s teaser for their new “vimeo on demand” service which has been opened to users who subscribe to vimeo’s PRO service.
The pro membership costs $199 (159€). Aside from that there are no additional costs. People who would like to watch your films can preview the work in the form of a trailer and pay an amount you set. The revenue is split 90% in your favour. To watch a film people are asked to register with vimeo in the process. ...
[UPDATE: We just realized this seems to be Europe only. Sorry US residents.]
Sony wants your (up to 5 minute long) shorts and gives out 4 NEX-FS700 camcorders and the grand winner of the so called PROduction awards will receives one of the first “4K kits” which includes the accessories needed to makes the Sony FS700 4K capable.
Granted the teaser video for this contest has a tad of last century weird, but that could probably give you a feeling of having even better chances to win. Another incentive: It’s free to submit your work and it can be uploaded easily, so no troublesome process to get started. ...
The Sony F5 & higher priced F55 have generated a lot of news throughout November. And there’s a good reason for that as the specs seem quite amazing. On the paper these cameras can deliver very high quality, up to 4K and have interesting color depth, codec and slow motion capabilities. ...
We’ve seen many grading apps and plugins made to take our footage that extra step towards the film look many of us are so keen to achieve: To make our films look cinematic, organic and nice. But none of them is quite as easy to use and gives you as spot on beautiful results as FilmConvert.
Does it work? Yes it does. I’ve been using FilmConvert for the past several weeks now and I’m very pleased with everything it has done. On any other software doing a quick film grade takes time and I have to smear up my footage with numerous looks, most of them being way to exaggerated. FilmConvert applies just the subtle changes needed to get digital footage where film would be.
The people from FilmConvert measured the exact differences from certain cameras to certain analogue film stocks. The software detects which camera your footage was shot with and alters it accordingly. The result is always right and each of the included 8 (light version) or 19 (pro version) stocks looks very nice. There’s also an exposure and colour temperature tab to do primary corrections and a 3-way colour correction and levels tab to do some rough grading.
FilmConvert has become an essential asset for colour correction workflow. From now on every digital material will go through FilmConvert in one way or another. ...
