Stephen Nathans-Kelly | Ryan Bodie's current passion, streaming live events, has established his company, Florida-based Studio 26 Productions, as the go-to live event webcast provider in his region and in some key entertainment areas, ranging from concert series in the spring to festivals in the summer and one-off arena gigs like a Chaka Khan show. Bodie estimates that his crew does roughly 80 live events per year, with maybe half of those involving music.

Philip Hinkle | The Bolt seems well-built, with an ABS plastic case and solid-feeling knobs and switches. It isn't a perfect light for all situations, but it's a useful tool if your typical wedding-day workflow includes using a stand-mounted light.

Kyle Oliver | Chris Duke's broadcast and web TV show Motorz combines the agility of a technology professional with the enthusiasm of a lifetime, self-taught car buff. The result is an automotive DIY show that can, in Duke's words, "keep how-to installations real for enthusiasts." But it does this without giving the impression that there's anything amateur about the decidedly DIY Motorz operation, and looking inside that operation provides a great lesson into what a multitalented and motivated independent producer can accomplish without a studio behind him.

Niels Puttemans | At a certain point in your event filmmaking career, usually after watching a fellow filmmaker's online clip, you start dreaming of your own destination shoot. Although we at Ever After have filmed a few destination weddings before, our "dream client" turned out to be a young couple from Singapore. The couple was planning an engagement holiday through Europe and wanted an engagement film to show on their wedding day. It got better from there: We were asked to suggest the best city location in Europe for this December shoot. Although Paris gets more attention, if you're after a romantic European destination in December, there is really just one choice: Vienna, Austria.

Stu Sweetow | For corporate videographers, the opportunity to develop a rapport with the head of a corporation can be an opportunity for a long-term relationship with a firm. Your confidence with supervising the filming crew will be an asset the CEO notices. Your excellent pre-production planning ensures that the process runs smoothly, the exec performs in a relaxed manner, and the video exceeds the company's expectations.

Shawn Lam | Jensen opens his training DVD with points that reinforce my belief that I made a great decision in purchasing the FS100. He explains some of the great features that the FS100 boasts, along with the benefits for the end user. His DVD is filled with great visuals of the camera, its menu system, video shot on the FS100, and graphics to demonstrate key concepts such as a scale comparison of the Super 35 sensor to 4/3", 2/3", 1/2", and 1/3" sensors.

John Goolsby | If you've heard about the Sony NEX-FS100, you've probably heard it described as one of two things: a game changer or an expensive DSLR. Which is it? Neither. Sony calls this new model a "motion picture camcorder." I'll bet the company spent a lot of time trying to decide how to name this new piece of equipment, and I think it made a good call. The FS100 does not take stills, and it is not really designed for event filmmakers, but with a few minor modifications, it does a fabulous job.

Stu Sweetow | The skills you've developed filming family events will transfer well to covering the cocktail hour prior to a company meeting. Companies use video to expand their reach to customers, to train staffers who were not at the meetings, and to reward top salespeople with incentive travel to a preferred destination. People love to see themselves in a highlights clip shown at the close of the event, and sometimes the planners show the highlights video the following year to attract more attendees to their events.

Stephen Nathans-Kelly | Recently, I had the strange and wonderful privilege of watching a contemporary home birth film that is not explicitly about advocating home birth or dramatizing childbirth, although in its own way, it achieves both. Produced by two Central Florida studios, Kat Small's Cinema Chic Films and the Nielsens Photography & Design, Born at Home is an intimate and inspiring family film.

Jason Magbanua | For a lot of people, producing a same-day edit at a wedding reception is a regular thing, and it's something that is second nature after years of repetition. But for others, who find just shooting a wedding to be stressful enough, producing a polished edit to show to a live audience that same evening seems like an impossible task. Here, international wedding filmmaking sensation Jason Magbanua breaks down the same-day edit production process that's helped to make him "the new national artist" of the Philippines.

Frances | Qualified artisans are going to be called upon to provide both still and video work, because fusion equipment has changed public perception and buying habits. In general, wedding and event industry providers have traditionally been slower to change, as are all vendors in this arena. But I'll admit total surprise at a recent party planners awards presentation where not one single winning event was served by fusion imagers. What are they thinking? Without fusion capability, your potential client pool is shrinking and will continue to shrink over the next few years. No market analyst I've interviewed says otherwise.

Jan Ozer | Whenever I shoot a live performance, I have an internal debate about which functions to perform manually and which to let the camera perform. Obviously, the panning and zooming is my job; the question is whether I also take on focus and/or exposure. I shot my fifth Nutcracker season just before Christmas, which adds up to about 20 shows total, and I actually reached some clarity on this debate.

Stephen Nathans-Kelly | Is it possible to use Gregg Toland's deep focus cinematography technique evocatively in wedding filmmaking in the heyday of DSLRs, an era defined by shallow depth of field, focus pulls, close-ups, cuts, and multi-angle coverage? Or does our era really have to be defined so sharply, or so narrowly? Here's hoping someone among us does try the Toland route sometime soon, and that the effort doesn't get blurred out in the shallow-focus collective memory that ultimately packages our time for future generations.

Elizabeth Avery Merfeld | Last fall, Canon shook our world when it released the transformative EOS 5D Mark II, a DSLR featuring full-frame HD video and dynamic depth-of-field control. Along with others of its ilk, the 5D is revving up videographers' creativity, smearing the line between the photography and videography industries, and ushering in (some say) a new era of photo-video fusion. With several months of use under their belts, we asked a handful of early adopters for their take on how the 5D has impacted their businesses and where (if anywhere) their first forays into fusion have taken them.

The latest LED lights are taking the video world by storm, and promises of bright lights with very low battery drain have many of us excited.

The Zylight light costs $375 more than the Sony light, but the truly innovative features in the Zylight make it well worth the extra cost.

For many of us—early adopters or not—2005 was the Year of HDV. But there was much more to 2005 than HDV. We saw scads of significant products released that had nothing to do with HDV and of course, event and corporate videographers the world over continuing to do dazzling, innovative, and effective everyday work with or without HDV. To provide readers with a highly subjective "Year in Review" report, we asked EventDV's many esteemed and opinionated columnists and contributing editors to reflect on the new products they saw in 2005 and tell us what struck them as the most exciting, and the biggest boon to their own work.

Jan Ozer|Shooting on a budget almost always means less than ideal lighting. To present your subjects in the best light, you’ll need to know what equipment to buy and how to use it, how to work without it when necessary, and how to adapt your lighting strategies to the idiosyncrasies of your shooting site. What constitutes “good lighting,” and how can you get it without breaking the bank? And how can you make sure it follows you wherever you shoot?
