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.

Tim Siglin | Newtek's long history in video production switchers—starting with the Amiga-based Video Toaster and more recent portable TriCaster units—takes an extreme leap forward with the rackmountable TriCaster 850 Extreme. Looking more like a four-rack-unit (4 RU) computer server than a traditional TriCaster, this is a TriCaster geared toward studio or broadcast facility integration rather than field production.

Jan Ozer | Over the years, I've gathered some thoughts on what it takes to produce and deliver a high-quality video experience and, to a degree, succeed as a video producer.

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.

He explains some of the great features that the FS100 boasts, along with the benefits for the end user.

Jan Ozer | Any time you have a camera at an event these days—with the probable exception of weddings—you should think be thinking to yourself: "Why aren't I broadcasting live?"

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.

Jan Ozer | If you're a Final Cut Pro 7 editor who shoots with DSLRs, you've known you needed an FCP upgrade for some time now; little did you know Apple wasn't developing one. So the time has come to switch, either to FCPX, which is a completely different animal from FCP 7, or to an NLE from another vendor. In making this decision, you should consider multiple variables, including cost, the ability to continue working with older projects, the learning curve of the new editor, and the effectiveness of the various tools.

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.

Randy Panado | collaboration becomes a bigger part of our industry and more of us are booking weddings outside of our own local markets, either because of the nature of our online marketing, our need to book weddings in a higher price range than our market will allow, or both, traveling to gigs becomes an ever-bigger part of our businesses—even for those of us who don't live on relatively small islands.

Jan Ozer | Sony's new Cinescore application ($199) goes head-to-head with SmartSound's Sonicfire Pro as a soundtracking tool for video producers. Cinescore's ever-growing library of royalty-free music is vast but often hard to search to find the track you want. Its customization options are extensive, but they feel more like an invitation to experiment and change your music than to fine-tune your selections, which I suspect is the goal for most of us.

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.

Geoff Daily | The perfect song is a hallmark of the perfect wedding. But what about the perfect wedding video? If you want to sync that song to your footage, you’ve got to pay the copyright holder, and without a scalable fee structure in place, owners of desirable copyrights are unlikely even to negotiate with videographers. Royalty-free music sources offer one alternative, as do original compositions. But if your competition promises the perfect song, copyright be damned, how can you keep up and still stay on the safe side of the law?
