Last month, Videobred sent a couple of lucky employees to Vegas (oh dear) to attend the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show, which is one of the world’s largest electronic media conventions. With over 92,000 people in attendance and 155 countries represented, there’s A LOT of awesome and innovative stuff to see at this show. It was hard to narrow it down, but here are the five coolest things they saw (in no particular order):
It’s that time of year again, Louisville. It’s the glorious time of year where you nurse your March Madness hangover by completely ignoring all responsibilities and instead consuming your mind with events that lead up to a two-minute horse race. Fireworks, hot air balloons, marathons, celebrities, bourbon, mint juleps… It’s all very distracting. So here’s another distraction: which horse(s) should you bet on this Saturday? Check out our interview with notoriously good bettor Dave Shulhafer to get some advice before you go blow all your money on Pitino’s horse.
For a few members of the Videobred team, Easter weekend was spent with the Phantom Flex camera, capturing in slow motion things like eggs in mouse traps and Newkirk hitting a 300 pound block of ice with an axe. Over the weekend, they were able to capture a wide range of events in slow motion, such as a parade, archery, and break dancing.
Thanks to our friends at the Camera Department in Cincinnati, we were able to have a few days of hands-on training with the Phantom at Videobred and have some really cool footage to show for it.
Who needs beaches and Mai-Tais when you can have great Kentucky scenery and a camera? Videobred’s editor and shooter, Eric Stemen, spent his vacation last month driving around eastern Kentucky and shooting time lapses. His goal for the project was to create a two and a half to three minute video showcasing what the region is really like.
