[Video] Cinema of the Air

Here’s a really great video demonstration of how the latest technology is changing cinema. Most of these shots would not be possible five or ten years ago and the ones that were possible would have been prohibitively expensive. While I expect this rig is not cheap, the use of the latest tools and digital cinema allows the camera to go to the places and to show events like nothing before. And that has got to be great for storytelling possibilities.

Writing Credits

There was once a time, not so long ago, when the best thing about some movies was often the opening credits. Whether they were fun animated sequences, like in The Pink Panther or Catch Me If You Can, or the long, slow opening outer-space scenes from Alien and The Fifth Element. They always felt an integral and necessary part of the movie. However, recently the tendency is to move away from these elaborate introductions. In fact on many contemporary movies the traditional opening credits have been moved to the end and there are few or no opening credits at all. This is all part of a deepening trend in movie-making and Facebook is to blame.

The Source Filmmaker

This is an absolutely awesome innovation for machinimators. Those that know me know how much I talk-up machinima and its potential. Usually I’m met with scepticism because so far there’s not a lot of hard-core evidence for my claims. However, I firmly believe that this is the future of film-making. We’re only now just seeing the nascent tools emerging that 10-20years from now will allow this art form to completely dominate the world of movie making. Source Filmmaker and the Cinema version of CryEngine are only the beginning.
