Photo: Courtesy of Various Small Fires, Los Angeles On the surface, the talk is “TED-like”: the round red carpet, the well-rehearsed speaker, the shadowy audience, the headset mic. But quickly, discordant elements begin to register: the strange parenthetical markings on the floor, the inappropriate audience responses, the fact that the speaker himself is a 10-year-old boy.

We use science and technology to play creator in order to get us closer to the answer. Advancements in computing, artificial intelligence and robotics are all a part of that search but nothing brings us closer to being a creator of our own reality than Virtual Reality. After many false starts, the VR industry is finally taking hold as the largest companies like Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Samsung,…

For the past month I have changed this by stepping into meditation. I started by training my mind as I wake up to first be grateful for a good nights sleep before stepping…

  • 46 million Americans listen to a podcast every month — and advertisers are spending millions to reach them

    Drake Baer
    4 Mar 2015 | 7:57 am
    Podcasts are getting to be mainstream — and the money is starting to follow. According to Edison Research, approximately 46 million Americans listen to a podcast every month, or about 15-17% of the population.  That's nearly double the listenership from back in 2008. The most obvious cause of this growth is Serial, the real life detective story that the New York Times called "podcasting's first breakout hit." From what we hear from the advertising side, there are millions of dollars to be made. The info comes care of Adam Sachs, the CEO of Midroll, which acts as a broker between…

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) is not pleased with GIFs that made the rounds on Tuesday showing him seeming to have a less-than-thrilled reaction to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's big speech to Congress. In a Fox News interview on Wednesday, Paul said media outlets "demean themselves" by calling attention to his relatively slow clapping during Netanyahu's address yesterday.  "I think what's funny about it is that you have these gossipy websites who really demean themselves by putting stuff like that out," Paul said.

    17 Feb 2015 | 8:05 am
    For years I’ve been preaching the adage that when it comes to hard drive crashes, there are two types of people, those who have lost data and those who will. Well, last week it was my turn. Again. I was working at home, with all the proper protection, and still, in a single surge, two hard drives went kaput. Fortunately, thank the stars, the drives were from different projects and I had backups of each. Because let me tell you, as an editor there is no worse feeling than knowing you’ll have to redo hours, or even days, of work. What I took away from the experience is this: Unless you are…

  • MediaStorm Guide to Editing 2.4 Anamorphic Video

    4 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    Currently at MediaStorm, we are using the Sony PMW-F5 camera. Our final frame size is 2048×858, also known as 2.40. This more cinematic look is longer in width but shorter in height than the standard HD size of 1920×1080. Though our final output is 2048×858, the captured frame size is actually a bit larger at 2048×1080. This allows for more wiggle room when deciding what stays in the shot. There’s more latitude as you can now position the frame up or downwards without having to up-res its size. The MediaStorm 2.4 Editing Workflow To begin, you’ll need to download the…

  • A bare-minimum-data file organisation scheme

    Dan Gravell
    23 Feb 2015 | 4:00 pm
    As the writer of the Music Library Management blog I get a lot of emails asking for advice. A lot of these emails concern the best ways of organizing file and folder paths. Should I use genre in my file organisation? Should I use groupings (e.g. A-D) to lower the number of child folders? When all is said and done, I find the best general advice is that, when it comes to music file organization, the bare minimum is the best way to go. In other words, all you really need is the album ( or more generically, release) and artist names as folders, and the track name and number used in the filename.

I've had a couple of emails from Ubuntu users recently. Just a few days ago: I have installed the trial version on my laptop (Linux Mint, essentially latest Ubuntu/Debian base). Curiously: the images on the web pages are all toast.

    Exceptions. There are always exceptions. It doesn't matter how consistent our music file paths are, whether we've de-duplicated all music files and ensured all our album art is the same size. It doesn't matter if we've enforced consistent case rules across all our music metadata, exceptions still arise. Just as you've decided upon the best way of tagging your music files, some smart-arse musical artist will come along with something that ruins your approach. Funny characters, unsortable names. Well now it's time add Peter Gabriel to that list. It turns out that Peter Gabriel's first four…

And the answer may be that for music stations, in particular, Coleman’s foundation of a strong music position and our priority on personalities that matter actually work together to improve station brands. The reason that I’m rapidly coming to this conclusion is not because of research I’ve seen or even in many of your comments on the topic. It turns out that the biggest,…

    Jim Elliott is probably a bit nervous.  He’s the new chief judge for the 2015 Radio Mercury Awards, and he’s already anticipating the worst when it comes to radio ad submissions.  Sadly, he has every right to have serious trepidations about the advertising he’s about to hear. But before we get to his plight, let’s review some research about advertising in the all-important auto sector. As we pointed out in a post last week, radio’s 2014 revenue results are very checkered. Spot revenue is down, digital is up, automotive still leads, but it continues to erode.

It was the “Blast Plus” package.  With that I got 105 channels including HBO and 105mbps high speed Internet.  My first bill came in and it’s about $75 total.  Not much more than Internet alone.

    Here are some followup thoughts to my previous article – Have you cut the cord — in other words, do you get your television programs by means other than cable or satellite? Would you cord-cut if it were cheaper than your current bill? The truth is, whether or not you should cut the cord depends on your own viewing preferences. Do you watch sports? Are you addicted to HBO shows? How much live TV do you watch? In October 2014, CBS also announced a subscription service called CBS All Access.

Scalability is something that if you want to master, you need to practice for years. Unfortunately, our industry had to learn the complexity of ‘scalability’ the hard way. Take for example this or this organisation. I can proudly say, that Cleeng is an exception. We’ve mastered the art of…

  • The 7 Disciplines of Digital Leadership: What do you really need to know to become successful online?

    Doyle Buehler
    11 Feb 2015 | 7:48 pm
    After spending over 14 years in the digital era, it soon became clear what some businesses were doing online to be successful, while others were simply getting by, or worse yet – failing. Why does success online sometimes seem so far away? Why are some companies reaching significant levels of success, interaction, engagement and relevance that leave others spinning their wheels, and getting no traction whatsoever? Why are some businesses closing their doors? Principally, it all comes down to digital leadership. What each one of us does, to guide and develop our online ecosystem, by…
  • The Australian Brain Drain for Online Business Continues with Network 10 Reality TV Show “Shark Tank Australia”

    5 Feb 2015 | 2:24 pm
    Shark Tank Australia, where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to business investors, set to air on Network 10 on Feb 8, is lacking key industry relevance. While great on concept, it lacks substance for the true epidemic in Australian business – a keen sense of direction and focus with online, digital businesses and expertise. The investors as part of the show, who judge the entrepreneurs pitch, and decide to either invest or not, consists of only one entrepreneur directly involved in the digital/online space.

    28 Jan 2015 | 7:29 pm
    In other words, what to do when Facebook and other social media sites run out of power or stop functioning for short periods of time. We’ve all seen or know someone, or even experienced the frailty of life when the power goes out or when Facebook goes offline, for “Maintenance”, or whatever else they call it. Take for example January 28th, 2015, a day which will live in infamy, when both Facebook AND Instagram both went offline for upwards of ONE hour. This was the real blackout that was happening, and that was affecting all of us online-affected. 60 minutes of “chaos” was overheard…

With so many contrasting dynamics and personalities colliding at any one time, a digital agency is never short of some form of drama or exciting occurrence. Despite being different in their own individual rights, the general make up of most digital agencies remain exactly the same.

    The phrase content is king has been thrown about quite a bit in the digital marketing world over the last few years. It’s an adage that has caused many debates on its validity. Having quality content on your site is a must, that much is a given. It also helps to have the same standard of content, if not better, dotted around other parts of the web too. It’s all about building your digital footprint and ensuring you don’t leave any nasty trails in the sand.

    Apple Inc. versus Ronseal. That’s quite an odd contest we hear you say. Yes, it seems strange for us to be comparing two completely different brands at total opposite ends of the retail world. One is a global superpower and manufacturer of sleek, modern and expensive electrical devices; the other a provider of wood care products and DIY materials. One is quite clearly a lot more successful and profitable than the other with more global recognition than Ronseal could ever dream of. Ronseal is a UK based company with products primarily being sold on home turf; nevertheless their catchy slogan…

    6 Nov 2014 | 1:23 pm
    Since the dawn of the Internet, search engines have been the only way to efficiently search for the information you require. Almost no users remember the URL of all but their favourite websites, and most will remember key search terms (which are much more intuitive to discover and remember), and attempt to use these through search engines in order to quickly locate their most commonly used resources. Around 75% of users never scroll past the first page of search results, so allowing your page to appear high in the rankings is obviously key to directing high volumes of traffic towards your…

    DJ Zane Lowe has announced his new employer will be Apple. He will be leaving the BBC Radio 1 after 12 years of nurturing his radio show to be a loud enthusiastic romp through new music discovery. His candid interviews of some of the biggest names in music are top-shelf also. Neither Apple nor Lowe have said what his position will be. The speculation that Apple is seeking big talent in the music-influencer category is an obvious one. As we’re waiting to see what Beats Music becomes, adding Lowe to their arsenal of curators is nothing short of a victory. Hiring Lowe may be an indication…

The new service will be based on Beats Music technologies but the interface design will be all Apple. Apple will “deeply integrate” Beats into iOS, iTunes, and Apple TV.

  • Apple Patent Issued For Sharing Media

    29 Jan 2015 | 9:42 pm
    Apple was awarded a patent for sharing music and videos that, in the most basic sense, allows a purchaser to share their digital file while enabling Apple the ability to monetize and possibly track the shared file. Apple patents technology inventions often, but that does not guarantee it will show up in a product any time soon. This particular patent may lend itself to marrying an iTunes download with legitimately sharing it with someone else. But it also describes a two-tier pricing structure. The first tier for a download while the second tier for use without downloading (which may also…

    I’ve been eagerly studying, creating, curating and producing in the transmedia vein for the past few years, ever since the cross-media me saw the light of transmedia storytelling in a conference room in Cardiff in the summer of 2010. I’ve taken part of all the different discussions on what transmedia really is and what it’s not, I had the privilege of attending the first Storyworld conference in San Fransisco (probably the best conference I’ve ever been at, in hindsight) and I’ve been blogging and interviewing about transmedia ever since.

    Politics is often known to be scandalous, however I never thought a drama related to politics could be so intense that it would leave me binging for hours on end as soon as the new season is finally released onto Netflix. The Netflix original series, House of Cards, is the only series in the last few years that has managed to grip me as much as Games of Throne and Breaking Bad. One of the main reasons for the shows success is the superb central performance from Kevin Spacey (two Oscars, one BAFTA, one Golden Globe) who winds back the years with his brutal depiction of Frank Underwood, a…

James Franco and Seth Rogen team up again after creating two successful movies: last year’s This Is The End, and Pineapple Express (2008). It’s safe to say that The Interview is an unsubtle, painful and shallow attempt at satirical comedy – a collapsed self-parody.  James Franco plays a talk show host, Dave Skylark, who presents a celebrity gossip show priding itself on revealing the insipid secrets of the Hollywood elite, including revealing Nicki Minaj’s…

This year has seen seasoned filmmakers like Wes Anderson and Jonathon Glazer produce some of their best work, while some of the years’ most impressive releases have come from exciting new directors such as Dan Gilroy and Jennifer Kent. We’ve also witnessed an exciting change from the high-budget end of the cinematic spectrum. As we’ve come to understand, blockbuster selections aren’t usually spectacular works or even original to boot.

And, of course, we now watch television differently as well. The evolution of TV is making it more accessible, more democratic, than ever before, and it’s opening up a wealth of new opportunities for both viewers and broadcasters. How Television Broadcasting Has Changed For Ever It’s hard to believe that the very first, grainy, television broadcast was made only 77 years ago, so…

    Three years ago we started a great partnership with StreamUK and we are happy to celebrate this today and toast for the many years ahead.

  • Why Net Neutrality Is So Important For Digital Content Producers

    Dimitar Serafimov
    27 Feb 2015 | 7:17 am
    The internet is saved! Net neutrality has been the big topic on people’s lips in the lead up to the FCC ruling of February 26th, with politicians on  both sides of the divide debating whether enshrining net neutrality in federal law was good or bad for consumers and businesses. In a tight decision the new rules protecting net neutrality were adopted by three votes to two, but the fight may not be over yet. Let’s take a look at why net neutrality is so important for digital content producers. Net Neutrality And Digital Producers Digital content is becoming more important with…
  • Does Geography Matter In Music Streaming?

    Dimitar Serafimov
    26 Feb 2015 | 2:31 am
    Wherever you are in the world, the technical developments of recent years have made the streaming of music far more common. In 2013 in excess of 18 billion songs were streamed in the US; an increase of 32% on the previous year (figures courtesy of Nielson Entertainment). In the UK 7.4 billion songs were streamed, which represented an increase of 50% on 2012 (figures courtesy of BPI). So it would seem that music streaming is only rising in popularity, but that hasn’t resulted in a corresponding increase in revenue. The exception to this is Scandinavia where the subscription music streaming…

    Dimitar Serafimov
    24 Feb 2015 | 7:34 am
    Broadcasting consumers are growing more sophisticated and more demanding, and what they’re looking for above all else is quality. We’re not talking about the quality of the program itself, but of how the program is delivered. Modern consumers want a high quality picture with superb clarity. High Definition television was conceived to deliver this, but that’s now being left behind by the 4K revolution. That’s why so many broadcasters are wondering whether it’s time for them broadcast in 4K, and how best to do it. The Advantages Of 4K Broadcasting Put simply, 4K…

  • 5 Tips to Build A Company Brand Voice

    Laura Armbruster
    3 Mar 2015 | 7:41 am
    Many people talk about brand voice, tone and messaging, but when it comes down to it, they choose their own personal voice rather than seeking to develop a voice for the brand. This is very easy to do, and perfectly reasonable if as the leader of an organization it makes sense for you to be the voice. When was the last time you did a review of your content to determine how you are saying something? If you cannot remember, then it’s been too long!

    When it comes to building a website for consumption, using WordPress pages and posts make perfect sense, but what is the difference between the two and which is better for SEO?

  • Biz Tip #1: How to Turn Your Rolodex into CASH $$$

    John Carroll
    25 Feb 2015 | 2:00 am
    One of my pet peeves is the use of the Rolodex. In many cases it is not been used effectively as an important business tool. And now in the modern era, the Rolodex has been further reduced to little more than an electronic repository for business cards. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, a Rolodex is a rotating file device used to share business contact information. However, to clarify for this article, I consider the Rolodex, business card file, CRM and other Contact lists to be synonymous. In the corporate world, I had to frequently listen to executives brag about their…

  • How to create a quick motion blur effect on titles in Premiere Pro

    2 Feb 2015 | 8:20 am
    One of my biggest gripes with creating graphics in Premiere Pro and animating them, is that there’s currently no way to add motion blur. Motion blur adds a subtle but professional feel to moving graphics, that don’t jar with the person watching them. Usually I’d whip over to After Effects, dynamically link a composition and let After Effects do the work. However, sometimes I’m just looking for a quick fix or co-working on a project with non-AE users. This trick only really works for reveals such as the bottom, solid layer of a lower-third title. Create a new title in the project and…
