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 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.

mocha Tracks The Wolf of Wall Street
mocha Tracks The Wolf of Wall StreetWith multiple VFX Oscars (Hugo and Titanic, plus a nomination for Apollo 13) plus a couple of Emmys (Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) under his belt, the most remarkable thing about Rob Legato's latest VFX extravaganza is that it doesn't appear to have any VFX at all! Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street is a masterpiece of what has become known as invisible effects, and this article from our friends at Imagineer, highlighting Rob's work with mocha, is a real eye-opener.
