    Heroes are fallible. Even superheroes must have their faults and weaknesses, and the screenwriters behind some of the most memorable portrayals of comic book heroes and real life heroes in recent years are certainly far from perfect. Yet, two long-time screenwriters, David S. Goyer and Susannah Grant, have both battled failures as writers to give us memorable scripts with complex heroes, whether pulled from comic books or ripped from the headlines. Thanks to the BAFTA Screenwriter Lecture series, both Goyer and Grant share their experiences as screenwriters with the rest of us so we can learn…

Containing features that you’ll find in higher-end EVFs/monitors, the new 4.3″ SpectraHD 4 is going to come in at a bit lower price than some other options. They’ve also got a larger 7″ monitor with slightly less resolution, which should work well as an inexpensive additional monitor on the camera. Finally, they are introducing new lights with far higher CRI ratings — which means better color reproduction. Check out the interview below:…

    1 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    A key distinction between types of links is nofollow and dofollow links. The difference between nofollow links and dofollow links is that Google uses only dofollow links in making search engine rankings. Nofollow links on their own will not improve the position in a Google search of the linked item, whether it be a website, a video, a YouTube channel, or anything else. Dofollow links…do affect search engine rankings. Before Google created the nofollow attribute in 2005, all links were dofollow. When you create a link through a social media platform—including YouTube, Facebook,…

    ReelSEO has pointed out an interesting finding from Adobe’s 2013 Video Benchmark Report—that video marketing on the blogging site, Tumblr may be valuable. Sometimes overlooked, Tumblr kind of straddles the social media definitions. Like WordPress, it’s a blogging platform. Like Twitter and Facebook it tends to run to short bits of information. And like Pinterest it’s dominated by visual media. Yahoo bought the site in May 2013 for $1.1 billion. Facebook is driving most video starts from social media (80% while Tumblr drives fewer than 3%), that is, more people are…
