EventDV Magazine: September 2008
September 2008: Features
Hal Slifer | To be successful today, wedding and event videographers must have a Cash Cow: a product that supplements their mottom line by delivering regular (and often quick) revenue and makes them stand out from the competition. Here's what several top videographers told us about their Cash Cows and how they've kept their businesses profitable in the current economic downturn.

September 2008: In the Studio
Shawn Lam | As the volume of DVDs I duplicated increased from all the stage events I produce each year, a high-volume thermal printer became a necessity, leading to my recent purchase a Rimage Prism Plus Autoprinter. The professional thermal printing look the Prism delivers has quickly become one of the differentiating factors I use to set my business apart.

September 2008: Column: Amen Corner
Tim Siglin | One request I get frequently from consulting clients and readers of this column is how to speed up transcoding. While there's a significant amount of confusion on which streaming format or codec to choose, speeding up the transcoding process is equally misunderstood in terms of what the best approach should be.

September 2008: Column: Cradle to Grave
Alan Naumann | I was recently asked to shoot a 50-year class reunion at a local high school. There are 150,000 high school reunions each year, with an annual total attendance of 27 million, or 180 per reunion. That's a lot of potential business for event videographers.

September 2008: Column: The Moving Picture
Jan Ozer | Because Adobe showed what looked to be stable CS4 versions of Premiere Pro and OnLocation for the Mac in April at NAB 2008 and is currently shipping beta versions of Soundbooth CS4, I'm expecting to see Production Premium CS4 by early 2009, if not sooner. But what's CS4 going to deliver?

September 2008: Column: Strictly Business
Steve Yankee | As I often tell people, the biggest advantage to working from home is the convenience. Alas, the biggest disadvantage is also the convenience! You can go to work at any hour of any day, and "stay" as long or short a time as you wish. The important thing is that you control your schedule—don't let it control you.

September 2008: Column: Vantage Point
Laura Moses | Truly great films don't just tell a story, they create a mood—not unlike a dream—that draws audience membersinto an experience they are able to feel with their entire being. Event filmmakers, though working within restricted parameters that don't allow directorial control, can nevertheless draw upon these elements of filmmaking to touch the soul of a viewer.
