Following the success of MCD Training at the 2016 Sasol TechnoX exhibition, another one of our new clients, UARM at the NWU Vaal Triangle Campus, set up a stand at an IRMSA (Institute of Risk Management South Africa) exhibition event at Gallagher Estate recently. Featured were their current series of videos on Blu-ray. 



Looks great! Also happy to report that the videos seem to working as advertised in attracting industry attention to the programme.

This project made me think again about the wonderfully connected world that we live in. I've produced a number of sit-down interviews with international experts for Optentia Research Focus Area at the NWU's Vaal Triangle Campus but this one traveled exceptionally fast...

Posted by Corne Scheepers on Friday, September 16, 2016,


Nowadays I shoot most of my sit-down interviews with two cameras. As a result I do a lot of multicam editing. A lot. And the good news is that multicam just got better in the latest version of Avid Media Composer 8.6.1

I still recall thinking it was serious voodoo the first time I synced up the footage from two cameras, dropped a group clip into the sequence and then proceeded to fly through a 20min interview like it was a live cut...hit play, then hit cam 1, cam 2, cam 1 on the keyboard. Done...

The following post is more proof that I'm a complete and utter geardo.

When the missus and I decided it was time to sell our aging Opel Corsa Utility we knew the next vehicle had to fit specific criteria: 1) fit the budget (of course), 2) be able to seat four people and have enough space left for all our camping gear and my camera equipment for work, and 3) be able to securely lock my camera equipment in the back. A panel van was the obvious solution and we looked at a number of options. ...
