Bern Universitys Applied Sciences builds communication training stations and completes workflow with LMS, MAM and P5 Archive
Communication training is a core part of many industries as well as educational institutions. For customer contact, management, patient communication and many other scenarios, interactive training of these skills is needed. At Bern University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland, communication training of medical students with the goal of improving patient communication has been part of the curriculum for many years. Recently, a new infrastructure was built to streamline the trainings and their management. The solution was built around a centralised media asset management (MAM) server to allow for efficient workflow automation, including archiving. The video recording stations were built using highly reliable components and a web application was developed to allow remote control and tagging from iPads. Integration with existing planning tools was implemented to significantly reduce the management overhead of the training program. Read More

Digital Colorist Dave Franks Discusses VR Post-Production for Jaunt's
Digital colorist Dave Franks enjoys helping to deliver bleeding-edge projects, like director Tony Kaye's VR experience: 'Pure McCartney VR' - a five-part series of stereoscopic virtual reality (VR) experiences, produced by Jaunt Studios.

Each one of them is a unique vignette of McCartney discussing the origins of some of his most iconic music and other anecdotes within environmental montages of his artwork, photographs, and related imagery.

Colorist Alastor Arnold Differentiates the Past from the Present
In "The Book of Love," Henry (Jason Sudeikis) is an introverted architect who loses his wife Penny (Jessica Biel) in a tragic car accident. In order to cope with his grief, Henry befriends a homeless teen named Millie (Maisie Williams), and he helps her build a raft to sail across the Atlantic, while she in return helps him recover from the loss of his wife. The film, which premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, makes use of flashbacks and several subplots to help tell the story, and Senior DI Colorist Alastor Arnold was tasked with bringing them to life through color. Alastor relied on DaVinci Resolve Studio to deliver the final DI grade of the film at L.A.-based post-production facility FotoKem. Read More

Singer Clara's 'Parasite' Music Video Shot with Blackmagic URSA Mini 4K by TruLove Post
In the music video for her single "Parasite," singer Clara takes a unique approach. The song is about a girl who repeatedly tries to steal her friends' lovers, like bees who try to steal the honey bee's honey. Clara uses the music video not as a storyline for the lyrics, but as a message and a warning to the offending girl, while also expressing the feelings and confusion one goes through when trying to understand why someone would act that way.
