If this copy of Pro Moviemaker has arrived a little earlier than you might have been expecting you could have missed the news that the title has now gone bimonthly in response to popular demand. The team here is delighted to have the opportunity to bring you even more features and news from the vibrant world of professional filmmaking.
Alongside the latest news from Cine Gear Expo in LA our features this time around include the story of Sea Raven Media, a team that’s spent the last couple of years travelling round all the US National Parks producing some extraordinarily compelling film, much of it time-lapse. We’ve also been talking to Edmund Fraser, a photographer/filmmaker who’s been pushing the boundaries between still and moving imagery.
Regular contributor Jim Marks has been working on a project that involved turning familiar TV faces into terrifying zombies, a job that required the services of a specialist make-up artist, while Todd Baxter, who oversees CNN’s drone operation, explains how UAVs have changed the face of news.
We’ve also got extensive reviews on the latest streaming model from JVC and Blackmagic’s Micro Cinema Camera.
All in all it’s another issue that’s simply bursting at the seams with exceptional stories and I hope you enjoy the read!
