YouTube is opening a production ‘Space’ for video creators in New York next month

YouTube is opening another of its studio “Spaces” in New York to help its community of video makers learn, collaborate and create new content. The facility follows similar setups in London, Los Angeles and Tokyo, which give aspiring filmers and internet personalities, which are attributable to much of YouTube’s success, access to equipment and industry experts. The treasure trove of video-making kit will include cameras, lights and boom microphones – some of which will be available to loan – as well as permanent and rotating sets, sound stages and post-production facilities. The fourth YouTube Space will open next month at…

This video shot by a flying drone shows Apple’s spaceship campus in construction

There’s been a lot of hype about Apple’s new ‘spaceship’ Campus 2, a 2.8 million square-foot collection of buildings that was first proposed back in 2011. Now, a video captured by a GoPro mounted on a flying drone gives a bird’s-eye view of what’s going on at the construction area, as spotted by 9to5Mac. We got a glimpse of the massive campus via an aerial photo released last month, but the new footage shows how much progress has been made since then, with the foundations of the buildings already laid down. The city of Cupertino revealed earlier that work only started on the campus…

Al-Jazeera Reporter Appalled By Media’s Behavior in #Ferguson – Quits Assignment (Video)

Source: www.thegatewaypundit.com – Thursday, August 21, 2014
Since the arrests, reporters often outnumbering protesters during the day. ( Getty-Politico ) Al-Jazeera contract reporter Ryan Schuessler blogged Thursday that he will not be rejoining the media circus in Ferguson. He was appalled by the media’s behavior the past two weeks. KMOV reported: Ryan Schuessler won’t be returning to Ferguson. I had been on the ground helping Al Jazeera America** cover the protests and unrest in Ferguson, Mo., since this all started last week. After what I saw last night, I will not be returning. The behavior and number of journalists there is so appalling, that I cannot in good conscience continue to be a part of the spectacle. **A clarification edit: I am not a full-time employee of any Al Jazeera branch or network. I am a freelance journalist who contributes to several media platforms. Things I’ve seen: -Cameramen yelling at residents in public meetings for standing in way of their cameras -Cameramen yelling at community leaders for stepping away from podium microphones to better talk to residents -TV crews making small talk and laughing at the spot where Mike Brown was killed, as residents prayed, mourned -A TV crew of a to-be-left-unnamed major cable network taking pieces out of a Ferguson business retaining wall to weigh down their tent -Another major TV network renting out a gated parking lot for their one camera, not letting people in. Safely reporting the news on the other side of a tall fence.

Web video service Pluto.tv lands on connected televisions with an app for Amazon’s Fire TV

Amazon-Fire-TV

Online video service Pluto.tv has released its first native set-top box app with the launch of an Amazon Fire TV version. Pluto.tv launched back in March with curated channels of continuous Web video content presented through a familiar TV guide-like interface. For instance, a top music program collects YouTube and Vevo music videos from the latest chart-toppers and then plays them as a single program. While the startup already supported Google’s Chromecast, this is the first time it has ventured into the connected TV space. Bringing Pluto.tv onto actual TV sets will pose an interesting challenge for the service. Much…

11 tips for creating a successful and engaging interactive video

film reel
Erika Trautman is the CEO and co-founder Rapt Media. Between Pharrell’s “Happy” music video and the video for Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone,” interactive ideo (IV) is undoubtedly hot this year. IV breaks through the noise, gets people talking, and gets more views. The real value, however, is that those views are longer and more engaged. But with interactive videos like Pharrell’s and Dylan’s setting the bar high, it’s easy to assume that only rockstar creative teams with monster budgets and months upon months of planning can create an IV, leaving those new to Interactive Video wondering where to even…

Facebook Messenger for iOS update adds instant video sharing and playback

Facebook continues to add new multimedia features to Messenger, its standalone chat app: the latest addition is the ability to instantly send (and play) videos of up to 15 seconds from inside the iOS app. The update is similar to the ‘instant photo’ feature that was added in April. Combined, the features let users snap photos and record videos while they are messaging with friends without the inconvenience of leaving the app. That puts Facebook Messenger on a par with Line, WeChat, Tango, Snapchat and other chat apps that offer in-app multimedia sharing. There’s also another new feature – geared at those who…

Remember Gangnam Style? It just became the first video to pass 2 billion YouTube views.

Remember Gangnam Style? The song may no longer be fresh and PSY may no longer be unknown, but it continues to be hugely popular after it became the first video to break two billion cumulative views on YouTube. We haven’t embedded this for two reasons: you’ve already seen it – you’re sick to death of it — and what’s cuter is this GIF that shows the amusing caricatures added by Google/YouTube to mark the milestone. (There was just one dancer when it reached one billion views.) YouTube is emerging as a key platform for both mainstream and new media across Asia and…

Father-son developers create service that offers different languages in a single video

There’s always been a certain je ne sais quoi about going to a foreign film. First, it absolutely confirms that you know how to read (kidding). But second, it implies that you can read between lines of dialog you don’t understand, and which are often minimally translated, to get the heart of a story. The father-son creators of an upcoming service called Alugha — still in beta — don’t think you should have to work that hard to enjoy a video just because it’s not filmed in your language. The pair is determined to facilitate the native-language translation of movies,…

Review: Videohance for iPhone offers expert video options but keeps shooting and editing simple

Screen-Shot-.59-PM
Some people go to their local animal shelter every week in search of the perfect dog or cat. Other people go to Apple’s iTunes store — arguably much more often than that — to hunt down the perfect video editor. Which brings me to Videohance, a new entry into the space that touts some expert video options while keeping the shooting, editing, and sharing process dead simple. With Videohance, you can shoot within the app with either a 1 x 1 square or 16 x 9 HD aspect ratio or you can do post production work on any video you already have…
