October 1999 [Volume 8, Issue 10]: Features
I’ve been in this business for more than 17 years and I’ve never seen one topic more hotly debated on video forums than this: Should the videographer eat at the reception, and who provides the meal?

Some years back, a lifelong friend of mine asked me if I’d put together a DVD slideshow for his sister and her fiancé if they ever got married. Well, they finally set a date of June 4, 2005, and ten days before their wedding day I received a FedEx package containing two CDs: one with 115 scanned photos to use in the slideshow, and the other with 16 songs suggested for the soundtrack.

October 1999 [Volume 8, Issue 10]: Column: The Main Event
We are creating videos for profit, so using copyright-protected music for our event productions is illegal. That said, if I were to take the law into my own hands, hypothetically speaking, this is how I would come up with some creative music for the “Timeshift” video concept introduced in the April installment of The Main Event.

October 1999 [Volume 8, Issue 10]: News: Features
When looking at the collected works and training materials of in-the-trenches, real-world event videographers, I’ve found that there are, generally speaking, two flavors of such compilations--the Vanity and the Instructional. Watson Videography’s Tutorial and Sampler Pack combines both approaches in a two-disc set. Unfortunately, for various reasons, this pack doesn’t quite hit the mark in either respect.

More than ever, good camera support equipment—be it tripod, monopod, steadicam device, or jib arm set-up—is the foundation for good video. We’ll look at all these categories in the next few editions of Gear & Now. This month, we’ll start with tripods.

Shooting weddings in military settings presents unique challenges to videographers, from security issues to matters of military protocol and tradition. Here we take a look inside the U.S. Naval Academy Chapel, with a closeup view of how Naval Academy weddings work and what videographers need to know before tackling a project in such an environment.

Content is still King. Many say they like the excitement of car racing; however, I suspect that if the cars just drove around the track, and there were no accidents, it’d be far less popular. The drama comes with cars rubbing against each other, jockeying for position, and spinning off the track. People watch for crashes, flames, and the driver getting out and waving to the crowd like a gladiator who survived the fight with the lion. Drama makes good TV. HDTV just makes it prettier to look at.

The TriCaster is a gem. NewTek has put together an incredibly powerful little package at an almost unbelievable price point. The live switching alone is probably worth the price of admission, but when you throw in video capture and editing, all in a portable form factor, you’ve got an incredibly useful tool at your disposal.
