Welcome ISSUE 112: APRIL 2016 64 Welcome. It’s NAB time and for those interested in new releases, updates and no doubt the odd merger and acquisition thrown in it’s going to be a busy period following the news and fall out from the show. We’ll be in Las Vegas speaking to exhibitors, discussing trends and technology and bringing all this to you in lighting speed via our YouTube channel each day of the show. Lets start this issue off with a quick unashamed plug for the channel to make sure you see and hear it first from KitPlus! Scan the QR code or visit We’re surrounded with the demand for news and content to feed our hungry social media channels and if you’re reading this flying from the UK to NAB then a staggering 180,000 hours of video will have been uploaded to YouTube alone by the time you touch down; with this amount of content then who can therefore be surprised that quality and attention to detail sometimes take a backseat. Magazine Office: PO Box 6090, Newbury, RG14 9BB, UK Switchboard: +44 (0)1635 237 237 Editor: Simon Tillyer, Production Editor: Matt Robbins, Advertising: Jonathan Highett, Louis Rushton, Accounts: Lucy Pittock, Events: Layout and artwork: John Fryer, With this in mind it was a refreshing change to spend time on set at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) this month where a masterpiece was being recreated and recorded on both digital and film formats. Aside the superb set design, lighting is the key factor with attention to every minute detail with all elements of the original painting recreated perfectly. Cinematographer and course tutor Stuart Harris spent time with me discussing the elements of the ‘detail’ and the level they go to matches any high budget film set you’d find anywhere. Read the interview and see the photos on page 64. Drones, not surprisingly, feature highly at NAB this year within the Aerial Robotics and Drone Pavilion but just when does remote control hand over to helicopter filming? Drones have their limits, as do helicopters, and to discuss the options and considerations we spoke to Jeremy Braben from HFS as he was completing final shots for yet another block buster movie, all on page 56.
