Adobe has released version 32.1 of the popular video editing application Premiere Pro. The new version comes with a bunch of new features, but topping the list are stylised animated graphics created from captions (including speech-to-text captions) and an update to Premiere Pro’s collaborative features, with sequence locking and easy sharing. Other features include improved masking tools and expanded XAVC HDR support, along with improved and new support for ARRIRAW and RED V-Raptor XL support.
As a creative, more specifically as a Photographer/Film Maker, we tend to get gigs all over the city. From big Production to small, low-budget clients, our commute can be taxing, especially with increased gas prices. Electric cars are surfacing, from trucks and sedans to SUVs; you’ll pretty much see electric vehicles at every corner. This is why I purchased a Tesla Model Y; it’s efficient and roomy for all the gears and equipment I own.
The colour options Tesla provides are minimal. Since Green is my favourite colour, I had to figure out how can I acquire this colour. I have two options: get the car professionally painted or have the vehicle wrapped. So this is when my creativity started to develop a concept. We have seen many sports cars getting covered in a specific colour, and most of them have been eye catchy, so we decided to call them wrapped instead.
Capture One has released Capture One Live, a new platform for photography and collaboration. It’s meant for both real-time and post-shoot collaborations between everyone involved – photographers, clients, and production team members, no matter where they are.
I told you before about Christopher Larson and his series of collaborative virtual exhibitions. I recently became a part of it, collaborating with Chris on a set of photos for April 2021. I’d taken a long break from photography before that, and it was tough to start. But once I did – I couldn’t stop. The whole experience was beneficial for me, both as a photographer and as a social human being. And in this article, I’d like to tell you about two things. First, about how Chris and I prepared this exhibition, and second, how collaborating with other people can help you if you’re stuck in a creative rut.
I’m a big fan of collaborative projects, both as a participant and as a mere observer. Iranian photographer Alireza Rostami has just finished a pretty epic one and he’s kindly shared the results with DIYP. His little film camera traveled 16,284 km (10,118 miles) between 27 photographers. The journey started in Tehran where it also ended when the last negative was shot. During its 11-month duration, the project has told a story of solidarity, trust, and collaboration between people, and it’s a story that brings back faith in humanity.
With much of the world working from home, or just staying at home, even if they’re not working, a lot more people have taken to online collaboration videos in order to help stave off the boredom and be creative. And it seems to be happening quite a lot with musicians lately. Even Berton and Prescott from The Knack got together for one to make a parody of their own song My Sharona.
When you’ve got larger productions, with lots and lots of people involved, each playing different parts of a song live, editing them together can be a little tricky. In this video, Austin Kruczek shows us how to sync, move and edit together a bunch of different videos from performers in a “virtual big band” to get a very effective final result.
In this article, I’m going to be breaking down very tactical and easy steps to help you land more collaborations with influencers. If you follow this guide, using the framework and template that I’ve provided, you will find success.
Editor’s Note: These tips aren’t just for Instagram, either. The same principles apply to collaborations on YouTube and other social media platforms, too.
If you’re into any kind of photography that includes models, chances are you’ve heard of Model Mayhem.
Possibly the leading portfolio site in the industry, MM helps creatives find photographers, models, makeup artist and others to collaborate with. Unfortunately there seems to be quite a few shady characters with cameras out there and more than a fair share of unreliable models that don’t seem to have a concept of time. That is, if they even show up.
Hoping to regain members’ trust and boost its reputation in the industry, MM has launched a new two-way credit system called ‘Verified Credits’.
