It’s early in the new year and already there’s a major show on the horizon, in the shape of BVE. If you’re a photographer with even the remotest interest in what’s going on over the filmmaking side of the fence you have to find the time to get to this show, while for those who are already serious filmmakers it’s a no-brainer, and the proliferation of free information-packed presentations at the many theatres dotted around the ExCel Centre represent the icing on the cake. Don’t miss our BVE preview on page 12.
Elsewhere in this bumper issue of Pro Moviemaker you’ll find some fascinating profiles, my favourite of which is the one on Alister Chapman, who specialises in filming tornados. I’ve now learned that you just have to get ahead of the storm and then sit and wait for it to come to you: awesome! We’re also looking at the exploding drone market and finding out more about the rules and regulations that the pro has to be aware of, while on the business front the MintySlippers wedding video specialists are telling us how they have launched a sibling company to widen their appeal.
We’re also testing out some killer new kit, including the tantalising Blackmagic URSA, plus we’ve got our usual expert lighting, audio and software features. A great line-up of stories I think you’ll agree, and I hope you enjoy the read!
