Welcome to Issue Two of Pro Moviemaker, it’s been a busy three months since we last caught up. In that time there have been yet more landmark developments and launches in the filmmaking sector, and we’ve seen the huge IBC show in Amsterdam and photokina in Cologne come and go, both of them naturally lively showcases for the fast-growing digital video movement.
We were a media supporter for IBC, and have a full report of the event from our team on the show floor in this issue, along with five pages of news from other quarters, all serving to demonstrate how much there is to talk about these days.
Also in this issue we’ve got a terrific hands-on review of Sony’s A7S by Andrew Reid of the EOSHD blog, which reflects just how big a launch this is for the filmmaking community. As Andrew reports, this could genuinely be a game changer, helping to truly establish Sony as a market leader in the sub-£10,000 digital video category.
Also in this issue we’re looking at some very tasty new monitors, are sharing advice on how to put interviewees at ease and are debating the merits of hiring in gear as and when you need it. We’re also taking a look at working on location and examining some audio basics, so there’s plenty in here to keep you going until we meet again early next year!
