Pro LCD monitor hoods now available P roAm USA, a manufacturer of production equipment for film and video enthusiasts and professionals, recently released its brand new 7 LCD Monitor Hood and10 LCD Monitor Hood. Resolving Alice Cooper DocOpera B lackmagic Design has announced Toronto based Banger Films used Teranex 2D Processor and DaVinci Resolve to complete Super Duper Alice Cooper, a new documentary looking at the life of Alice Cooper. The film will premiere in the US at the upcoming 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and will be distributed commercially worldwide. In putting Alice Coopers tale to fi lm, Banger Films decided the tone for the fi lm needed to closely match the style of 1920s silent fi lms, in particular Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, from which stock footage was also used. To set the style and match the stock footage, Banger Films used DaVinci Resolve for color correction. With much of the stock footage needing a large amount of work, Banger Films did full color correction on each piece of footage after a Teranex conversion had been completed, instead of waiting for fi nal post production. LCD monitors can be attached to a camera or crane and provide an excellent alternative to viewing media through a cramped viewfi nder, offering major benefi ts including more accurate focus pulling and easier shot compositions. But when in bright settings, either indoor or outside and exposed to the natural light of the sun, the intense light can create an obtrusive glare or make even the brightest of screens diffi cult to see. The LCD Monitor Hoods from ProAm USA offer fi lmmakers a simple and inexpensive solution to this plaguing issue. www.proamusa.com #40471 - Genelec 8000 Ad_Layout 1 28/02/2014 13:05 Page 1 www.blackmagicdesign.com New baby The Genelec family expands with the new 8010 Broadcasters everywhere rely on Genelec 8000 Series monitors for the unadulterated truth about their sound.
