Canon Cinema EOS Cameras and Lenses Enable Filmmakers to Bring the Narrative Dramatic Tale of a Troubled South American Community’s Struggle to a Worldwide Audience
Equatorial heat and humidity, sporadic electrical service, and a modest budget were just a few of the challenges that director Josef Wladyka and writer/DP Alan Blanco faced while filming their feature "Manos Sucias" (Dirty Hands) among the impoverished fishing villages of Colombia’s Pacific coast. They also filmed in the jungle and aboard small boats in rough seas, all while needing to keep a low profile in a dangerous region. Wladyka and Blanco met all of these challenges with the help of compact EOS C300 Cinema cameras and professional lenses from Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions. Filmed completely on location, "Manos Sucias" is a drama depicting the perils of two fishermen coerced into towing an underwater narco-torpedo up the Pacific coast of Colombia.

Cooking With Premiere Pro CC on PBS's America's Test Kitchen
Cooking With Premiere Pro CC on PBS's America's Test KitchenAs America's Test Kitchen enters its 15th season on PBS, they've made the switch to Premiere Pro Creative Cloud. Post-production Supervisor and director Herb Sevush has been with the show from the beginning, and confessed some trepidation moving away from FCP 7, but has found it to be a great fit for their data-intensive, increasingly 4K multicam production, and his work with remote editors. Here, Herb offers some insights into both the why and the how of their switch, with special attention to Premiere Pro CC's approach to multicam.

RE:Match Non-matching Cameras in Premiere Pro
RE:Match Non-matching Cameras in Premiere ProIn this tutorial Andrew Devis demonstrates a relatively new plug-in by RE:Vision Effects called RE:Match and how it can very quickly and accurately deal with the very common problem of non-matching cameras in Premiere Pro. A typical approach to dealing with say a white balance issue would be to apply the fast color corrector and use the white balance picker, but this can be very hit and miss, while RE:Match deals with the whole image using another image or clip as the reference to match too. This very powerful effect can save a great deal of time for an everyday problem and so earn its cost back very quickly as well as giving excellent and fast results. There is another tutorial showing how this effect works in After Effects as there is a slightly different way the two applications deal with reference images.

Premiere Pro CS6 Techniques: 107 Rolling Shutter Repair
Premiere Pro CS6 Techniques: 107 Rolling Shutter RepairIn this final tutorial in this Premiere Pro Basics (CS6 & above) series, Andrew Devis shows how to use the Rolling Shutter Repair effects which deals with the problem of footage from a camera phone or a DSLR (CMOS sensors) which look wobbly or jelly-like when panned quickly. The obvious solution is to avoid fast pans with this type of camera, if possible. However, sometimes you have no choice and then need to clean up the end result to stop your audience from feeling sea-sick! The Rolling Shutter Repair is a very powerful tool to deal with this issue and make sure your footage looks more like you originally intended it to look.
