Hello and welcome,

For several months I've been testing and working with the JVC 4KCAM cameras: the GY-LS300, featuring interchangeable lenses, Super 35mm sensor, and 4K recording, and also the GY-HM200, which is an all-in-one camera with fixed zoom lens, fits nicely into the palm of your hand, and also features 4K recording. Both these cameras produce high-quality 4K or HD images, with easy post-production workflow, manageable file sizes, at an affordable price-point.

Next week, Tuesday, August 18, I'll be doing a webinar for Moviola all about the JVC GY-LS300 & GY-HM200. This will be broadcast online at 11:30 AM PDT (California time) which is 19:30 UK time. The webinar will feature reports of using the JVC 4KCAM cameras on-location, how they perform in real-world situations, and just why the JVC 4KCAM line-up offers something unique and valuable to filmmakers at all levels!

Walter Murch to headline at the IBC SuperMeet, Sept. 13, 2015

Feature film editor Walter Murch will be speaking at the Amsterdam SuperMeet. This is a big deal!

Walter has won three Academy Awards: best sound for Apocalypse Now (1979) and a double Oscar, best sound and best picture editing, for the English Patient (1996). He has been nominated for Academy Awards on six other occasions.

Murch has earned a reputation as being innovative and daring with his approach to technology. He used Final Cut Pro (the original version of the software) to edit Cold Mountain in 2003, at a time when Final Cut Pro still had to prove itself suitable for feature film production.

If you're planning to be at IBC register for the SuperMeet and listen to the words from one of the great innovators of our generation.
