David talks with us about all his gear and lighting choices, shooting hand-held effectively and how the best film education is to simply shoot something.




Vicon Motion Capture Technology Gives Doctor Strange The Magic Touch

Prepare to have your mind blown. Not only is Marvel's Doctor Strange a critically-acclaimed hit ($325 million at the global box office in 13 days, 90% Fresh at Rotten Tomatoes, and a rarely bestowed "A" Cinemascore from opening day audiences), but it's a sumptuous visual feast worthy of two films it invokes, The Matrix and Inception. Some of the most jaw-dropping sequences were fed from 24 cameras into Vicon's Blade mocap system, including an especially vertiginous fight scene between our hero, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, and Kaecilius, played by Mads Mikkelsen. We've got that clip, as well as a new behind-the-scenes featurette courtesy Marvel that you'll want to check out. Assuming you're ready to have your mind blown, of course.

NAB Show New York 2016: Growing, Yet Still Intimate

Calling April's NAB Show "overwhelming" is an understatement. The expo that fills the rapidly expanding Las Vegas Convention Center every April topped 103,000 attendees and 1700+ exhibitors in 2 million square feet of exhibit space. The Big Apple's edition of the NAB Show is more bite sized: taking place this week at the Javitz Convention Center, 7000 visitors will be able to engage with 300 exhibitors, along with a variety of new opportunities for in-depth workshops on cutting-edge technologies. Here's a preview of the week's festivities.
