Brand new look for www.matchframemedia.net

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Saturday, March 31, 2012,


Picture this - its late Friday night (actually more Saturday morning early), the neighbours are noisy and you're stricken by insomnia. What do you do? Why you completely rebuild your website of course! Yes, www.matchframemedia.net has had a facelift and now sports a cleaner, more up-to-date visual style. A few more new features are coming but for starters the client gallery now has a direct link to our YouTube channel where the latest and greatest video is available online right now. Check it...

Squeeze 8

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Wednesday, March 28, 2012,


An unexpected surprise came with my Media Composer 6 upgrade and dongle today. Out of the box jumps a serial number and installer for Sorenson Squeeze 8 for Avid! I'm a longtime user of Squeeze and this application just keeps on getting better. In version 8 Sorenson has further expanded their support for Apple and Android devices.

A blast from the past

The documentary "Finding the Fable" directed by Nicholas Ellenbogen was shown in the William Humphreys museum in Kimberley recently.   
 



The project was initiated two years ago by the African Centre for Disaster Studies at the NWU and was funded by USAID. The film itself boasts a great musical score courtesy of acoustic rock duo Lloyd & Bruno. If you couldn't make it to Kimberley yesterday don't despair because its available on DVD and you can view it online on YouTube

Thanks to Michael Murp...

Flolight Microbeam 128

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Sunday, March 11, 2012,


Geez I had to wait a looooooooong time for this one to arrive...

My Flolight kit has been on backorder in the US since the middle of last year, so when Jason at Pro-Sales (dealers in very cool and wonderful production toys) phoned me up to tell me mine has arrived, I made tracks to Jhb asap.

The Microbeam 128 is the one of the most compact lights in Flolight’s LED camera light range and comes complete your choice of Sony, Panasonic, JVC and a few other brands’ battery cradles. First cool ...
