"Noka: keeper of worlds"
Explores the Dark Side of Caribbean Folklore with Help from the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
Trinidadian born filmmaker Shaun Escayg has worked in VFX for more than a decade. He loves to create and manipulate images, especially when it comes to anything supernatural, as he is a huge monster film fan. For inspiration, he often draws upon his own heritage and love of Caribbean folklore, which has a variety of dark creatures in its beliefs, myths, tales and practices. In this type of folklore, the supernatural exists side by side with humans, and Shaun decided to explore this theme in his short film "Noka, keeper of worlds" which he wrote and directed. In order to bring the Caribbean's dark creatures to life, Shaun relied on his expertise in VFX, but when it came to capturing the live action, he needed a very specific camera to support his workflow.

Protecting Content
Let's face it people are uncomfortable with change even though it seems we have to make changes every day. It's even worse when you've got some of the greatest content you ever shot/created stored on devices spread around the office. So what do you do to ensure it's protected, available, safe from prying eyes? You decide to move to 20, 36, more TB of RAID (random array of independent drives) storage. First choice is hardware RAID because it's been around for a long time but now there's a strong option - software RAID - and it's time to understand the pros/cons of each. Read More
