Video Editing Services Improve with Adobe Creative Cloud 2015 Update

Posted by Forrest Knowland Dec 17, 2015

One of the many benefits that Adobe talks about in the Creative Cloud Suite update, is having the ability to get the update "free-of-charge" as long as you are paying the monthly subscription. That may seem crazy to some people in both good and bad ways. But, to me, I believe that it is exactly what we need in the technological autobahn we’re currently driving on. Every month it seems like there is some major breakthrough in either software or hardware, or some technique that changes the way we create content forever. So having the Creative Cloud constantly update with features that make you breath heavy is quite the achievement. Adobe generally comes out with these updates annually, or bi-annually.

VR - An Interactive Video Revolution

Posted by Forrest Knowland Aug 5, 2015

Virtual reality. Sounds futuristic, doesn’t it? It sounds like something the characters in StarTrek would talk about. But the truth of the matter is, virtual reality technology is no longer futuristic. It’s happening. Virtual Reality (or VR for short) is here. Although still in its infancy phase, VR content is being created daily for all of us at home to view. Here is a link to an interactive video that showcases what is available currently at this time. This video can be watched on your computer and you can get a feel for what it’s like. To truly get the best experience, view it on a phone or tablet and with a VR headset. If you are watching it on a headset, then you can actually interact with the video by turning your head and seeing it through a first person perspective. All of this on your phone. Like I said—the future is now.

VidCon 2015: The Gathering of Content Creators & Their Millennial Fans

Posted by Forrest Knowland Aug 4, 2015

July 25th, 2015—Anaheim Convention Center. As the summer heat in Southern California began to rise early in the morning, so did I. Not knowing what to expect, I packed my things (comfortable shoes, camera gear, open mind) and headed out to the Anaheim Convention Center located mere minutes from the hotel I was staying at. There were a few things I noticed upon arrival. There were trendy food trucks being set up for lunch, hundreds of teenagers waiting in line for a meet and greet, and stages being set up for performances later on in the day. This was some sort of mecca for YouTube stars and fans alike. A gathering of millennial teens and pre-teens clamoring to see their favorite content creators—hoping to get a hug and a selfie with them.
