    Since RED is still trying to deliver a few of the products they’ve had in development for some time — including the new 6K RED DRAGON sensor upgrades — there weren’t any earth-shattering announcements at NAB 2014. The newest products are about adding functionality to the cameras as they exist today, including the new Switchblade-M side panel and the 4K broadcast module which sends out an uncompressed 4K signal over four 3G-SDI outputs. They did however, have some interesting news for those looking at getting a SCARLET DRAGON, and for those who like to shoot native…

    The Mobile Marketing Association has put out its first report on mobile video benchmarks. As a first go round it's not bad and offers some interesting insights, while lacking some more specific information. Still, it does a decent enough job of looking at CTR and completion rates for skippable and non-skippable mobile video ads in three major formats, linear video, interstitial and value exchange (incentivized).

  • The Future of Video Includes Frequent Video Publishing

    22 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    A number of signs suggest that the future of video is in very frequent publishing. In a few short years, YouTube channels of typical associations, nonprofit organizations, and businesses will publish videos every week and, for many, even more often. Short has always dominated online video, and it’s likely that YouTube will look more and more like Twitter, with frequent bits of information that cater to short attention spans–and appear very frequently.  The future of video is now for the most popular video channels Checking out the one hundred most subscribed channels (by…

  • YouTube Links and How They Work

    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,…

  • Getting Personal: How to Humanize Your YouTube Channel

    23 Apr 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Social media is inherently human after all, it is fundamentally about people and connections — yet the reality is that communications on social channels can come off as less than personal even with the best of brands. The tendency to broadcast messages, one-way versus having a two-way dialogue, is caused by a few factors: an effort to stay on message, the need to drive real ROI from social channels, and the increasing ease of scheduled posts and marketing automation. By keeping your communications as real and spontaneous as human interactions, you can increase engagement not only on…

What I love about Christian (aka el caballo alemán, aka hammerino, aka Dr. Love), is that he does things that people only speak about.  One of the things I remember him telling me is that before he left his home town, he had thrown away all of his socks and bought 20 pairs of black socks so that he’d no longer have to search for matching pairs.  This is pure genius. One night I projectile vomited in a shop, and Christian had to take carry me home. After which, he continued to enjoy his evening and bumped into a couple guys he knew from the gym. At the time, I…

This would be moderately acceptable if I wasn’t already using a packet mix that only requires you to add water to a suitable consistency. So, with my new cooking talent,…
