On-location at Ciena
June 16 2016
This week Affinity is recording a series of optical networking technology demos for Ciena.
It's also the debut of our new Softron M80 recording system, which can simultaneously capture up to eight separate cameras, scan-converted computer displays or other HD sources - all with matching time code. The resulting ProRes files can then easily be synched and edited as multicam iso clips, resulting in huge flexibility and time savings in post.
Video Art in Parks Canada's HQ
June 15 2016
So great to see Affinity's Cave & Basin Heritage Site Visitor's video being shown on four screens as it is supposed to be seen! This picture was taken at the Parks Canada National Office - the original version is playing in Banff and stretches over 70 feet. Kudos to Jeremy Atherton (director), Lowell Cochrane (writer), Karl Roeder (DOP), Chris Coote (editor / post process design), Jamie Muntean and crew (graphics and animation), Serge Cote (composition, sound design), Howard Sonnenburg (audio post / site mixing), David Zimmerly (post production and site playback consultant), and Marye Ménard-Bos (Mother Earth voice-over)!
Greetings from Christmas-snowy Iqaluit!
May 24 2016
David Zimmerly, our Post-production Supervisor | Editor | TP | TD wears many hats. Here he's got his toque on. He's in Iqaluit with our colleague Rick Henry. While Ottawa basked in summer temperatures over the weekend, it's currently hovering around the freezing point there, with fairly steady, fluffy snow since they've arrived.
David and Rick are at the Inuit Broadcasting Corporation this week to focus on systems and workflow documentation, and to prepare training materials for workshops they'll conduct with the IBC staff later this year.
The dynamic duo also report that spring is on its way to the north!
