Hal Slifer | Producing family histories and biographies can make personal event video a much more rewarding endeavor—for both your client and your own bottom line. But the clients we encounter today are well-schooled in the rich and dramatic documentary styles of the Biography Channel, VH1’s Behind the Music, and the E! True Hollywood Story, and expect nothing less from the work we produce for them. Here’s a look at what’s involved in meeting—and exceeding—those expectations.

Amen Corner: Amen to That
Tim Siglin | This bimonthly column will cover a variety of topics over the next year. We'll first explore the growing trend in mega-churches toward installing and using multicamera setups, displaying video on multiple giant screens, and beaming it across the U.S. Some of these systems rival or exceed systems used in convention centers and civic auditoriums.

Editing Ergonomics
Todd Gillespie | As video editors, most of us spend the bulk of our non-shooting time pecking away at our keyboards and staring into our monitors.

Once again, we face off our five familiar contenders: Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, Avid Xpress Pro, Pinnacle Liquid Edition, and Sony Vegas.

All signs point to a hi-def future as long as we're still delivering content on shiny discs, we'll need a DVD-or worthy successor-that can handle hi-def content. Two blue laser-based formats, Blu-ray and HD-DVD, suggest different, equally likely roads to the same destination. Both have powerful backing, with NEC, Sanyo, and Toshiba on the HD-DVD side and Sony, Philips, and Pioneer on the Blu-ray side. Many questions remain: How do the formats differ? Which one will win out? And who will decide?
