Besides my normal teaching gigs that take up most of my time at NAB, I am also running around and sitting on discussion panels and making on floor presentations in the Central Hall.
Here's a few of them...
Notes: We tweaked this a bit more after the test. Main things were handling a strange catch light in right eye and swapping the RØDE NT55 out for the RØDE NTG 3 microphone which was much better in that particular interior space. Other minor stuff but the rest was pretty much as is. We shot a much tighter frame as well so they could cut between a wider and tighter shot. The president ran the script about 5-6 times.

It's been very quiet over here on the site but very, very, busy elsewhere (classes, producing, Twitter, etc).
I just wanted to do a quick post from Vegas as there's loads coming up with theC47 during and post NAB 2015.
The first ever products with "theC47" name will also be announced at NAB on Monday, April 13th! They will be under the Westcott brand and I am very excited to finally be able to show them to everyone. They will be in all of my classes at NAB starting on Saturday and you can go to the Westcott booth in the Central Hall to check them out. I will be in the booth all day Monday.
Sneak Peek videos for the products will go live on Monday as well and will be on the Westcott web site.
I also recently produced six part series for Canon that goes on set with Film Riot & Ryan Connolly about the making of their most recent short film. The series has now launched and there's some great content there. It's the kind of stuff I want to do much more of going forward.
Additionally, I have started to broadcast content using Periscope. My handle is theC47 and if you download the app you can watch live stream and also 24 hour archives that I post. This could be the new "gearbox" while I will work on more on set content for in depth craft based training.
2015 is going to be a fun year for theC47 and I hope you come along for the ride!
