Mirebalais Haiti Youth Filmmaking Learning Center
Posted On 01/22/2011 12:01:02


The post-Haitian earthquake period is a challenging time for the youth and young adults in every Haitian community. The Mirebalais Youth Filmmaking Learning Center is being developed to address some of the issues being experienced by the poor youth and young adults in the Mirebalais community in Haiti. There is a fertile and active community of videographers and filmmakers in Mirebalais, who have numerous needs that cannot be addressed by existing organizations in the community.

Cultural programming can be a powerful tool to help young people make sense of the challenges they face; meaningful experiences in the arts, humanities and sciences can help foster positive growth that is essential to becoming a successful adult.

Program Goals 1. To help the youth of Mirebalais increase their creative skills and talent in arts .

2. To improve the general academic performance of children, youth and young adults in the Mirebalais community in Haiti

3. To increase opportunities for youth to use their skills for the good of the general public, for profit and/or non-profit.

4. To teach children and youth about filmmaking and the film industry and how to market their finished products.

5. To enable Mirebalais youth and children to achieve a school attendance rate of at least 92%.

6. To empower low-income, at-risk youth to work as a team to learn about movie making, including learning about the process of developing concepts, and planning, directing and producing documentary and feature films. MPAHís ďVideo and Filmmaking Learning Center for Youth in BostonĒ program recognizes the fact that the key to performance is experiencing success and that success is always a motivatoróMany children and youth are natural movie lovers and are motivated by this to experience all phases of filmmaking, including learning how to create their own films.

The Motion Picture Association of Haiti, Inc. (MPAH) is seeking funding to support the implementation of our Mirebalais Youth Filmmaking Learning Center. This grant will be used as general operating support to aid our efforts to diversify and deliver video programming instruction and production to the youth in Mirebalais, Haiti and by assisting local independent filmmakers through our wide range of services.

This fund will be used to help purchase video equipments and lighting sets.

Haitian American Actor Michael Brea Accused of Killing Mother

'Ugly Betty' Actor In Custody In Samurai Sword Killing

11/23/2010 10:08 AM PST by TMZ Staff  

 

An actor who appeared on "Ugly Betty" was taken into custody in Brooklyn this morning for allegedly killing his mother with a 3-foot long samurai sword while screaming biblical passages.

Michael Brea Ugly Betty

According to the police, the suspect -- Michael Brea -- sliced his mother's head off during the attack.

When cops arrived to the scene around 2:20 AM, officers say Brea was clutching the bible. Cops ultimately had to use a taser to subdue the actor. Brea was taken to a nearby hospital for a psychiatric evaluation with a police escort.

Police claim the scene was "extremely bloody."

A neighbor told WPIX 11, "I hear the brother chasing her [his mother] through the
house and he's just saying a bunch of [Bible] passages like, 'Repent, Repent, Repent.'"

The neighbor continued, "I heard him chasing her through the house and I hear a loud scream and so I have my father
call the cops, call 911."

Brea has not been formally arrested or charged yet. We're told he'll will be turned over to the NYPD once his psychiatric evaluation is complete.

Boston Film Bureau - Permitting Assistance
Posted On 11/05/2010 20:58:46

After reading the following procedures, download and complete the Permitting Request Form (also available as a fillable form in MS Word) and contact the office to schedule an appointment.

  • For protection against possible occurence of personal injury, you must provide a Certificate of Insurance with a minimum of $1,000,000.00 issued to: The City of Boston, Boston City Hall, Room 716, Boston, MA with The City of Boston as the certificate holder. This Certificate ensures security in the unlikely event of personal injury occurring on city property as a result of your activities. You must request a Certificate of Insurance from your own insurance company, and have it dated for the entire period of time you are working in the City of Boston.

  • For protection against possible damage to city property, you must provide a bond with a minimum security of $5,000.00 issued to the City of Boston. The bond must be acquired from a local bonding company. There is usually a $50.00 fee for a bond valid for one year. For assistance in selecting a bond company, please contact our office.

    *Note: The following steps cannot be completed before meeting with a member of the Office of Special Events, Tourism and Film. They will accompany you through the remainder of the permitting process.

  • If your production requires reserved parking for staging vehicles, or pedestrian or vehicular traffic control, or if special circumstances are involved, you must present copies of your Certificate of Insurance and the property security bond to the Boston Transportation Department, located in Room 721 at City Hall. For parking needs, complete a parking permit application and have it approved. You must provide a detailed map of your proposed locations for filming and staging vehicles to facilitate the permitting process. If you are required to post notices for restricted parking or special circumstances, some postings must be completed 72 hours (three days) in advance of activities in residential communities, and 48 hours (two days) for non-residential communities; in addition, the posting notice application requires 48 hours to process interdepartmentally. Therefore, you must allow for a minimum of four to five days lead time to complete such arrangements. Parking will only be approved for vehicles with commercial plates. Requests for bagging of parking meters are also made at the Transportation Department, and you must provide meter numbers and exact locations. (The meter charge is $10.00 per meter per day.) For such arrangements, call Brian McKinley at 617-635-4675 at the Boston Transportation Department.

  • To acquire the necessary permit, you must present the Certificate of Insurance, the property security bond, and any necessary Boston Transportation Department Permits to the Office of Special Events, Tourism and Film, Room 802, City Hall. The office will then review your application to determine any additional permits, fees, and licenses that may be required by the City of Boston. (These may involve the Department of Public Works, Police or Fire Departments, Parks and Recreation Department, Neighborhood Associations or Special Interests.) The Office of Arts, Tourism & Special Events will then assist you in making any necessary arrangements with these departments. If there are any fees for special services, for example Police Details, Ranger Details, and Fire Marshall Details, such fees will be billed directly to the client by the respective office. The Office of Special Events, Tourism and Film also collects contributions to the Funds for the Parks and Recreation. If necessary, any Neighborhood Associations or Special Interest groups will make decisions that may be appropriate.

  • Finally, the Department of Public Works issues permits for shooting on the streets, sidewalks and public ways. For such permits, contact Ann McNeil, at 617-635-4909, Room 714 at the Department of Public Works. The Department will issue the project documents to determine the need for a permit. The fee for the permit is $20.00 per day per location. For other production requests, including locations or other film services, contact the Office of Special Events, Tourism and Film, which can also assist you in information pertaining to cities and towns outside Boston.

What's new in the EOS 60D
Posted On 09/28/2010 11:27:30

Whatís New in the EOS 60D: Full Video Feature Set


The new Canon EOS 60D is a perfect step-up camera for the amateur photographer who may currently be using an EOS Rebel model, but one aspect of its feature set is sure to appeal to high-end users: its HD video capabilities. Packed with arguably the fullest set of HD video features and in-camera controls of any EOS model to date, it may well find its way into the hearts of serious video enthusiasts. Weíll highlight the EOS 60Dís video features in this report, giving an overview of its abilities.
The Quick Control Screen on the LCD monitor displays many settings, one being the ISO. Pressing the rear Quick Control Screen button and scrolling through the ISO settings using the cameraís main dial, just behind the shutter release, can change the ISO.
18-million pixel, APS-C size sensor with wide ISO range:
Like the previous EOS Rebel T2i and EOS 7D cameras, the new EOS 60D has an 18 million pixel CMOS imaging sensor. Itís not full-frame ó that distinction is currently reserved for the EOS 5D Mark II camera ó but its APS-C size is identical to the T2i and 7D, making it significantly larger than the imaging sensors in the vast majority of professional video cameras. Canon CMOS sensors have a proven track record of superb image quality, along with characteristics like easy limiting of depth-of-field (to throw backgrounds out of focus).
And their low-light performance has stunned the HD video world. The EOS 60D continues to excel here, with an ISO range from 100 thru 6400 for video operation, and excellent low-noise performance even in low light.
Exposure Control ó fully automatic, or manual:
Like most previous EOS HD SLRs, the EOS 60D gives users the choice of totally automatic operation (ISO, shutter speed and lens aperture selected by the camera, based on ambient light level), or manual operation. The choice is made in the shooting menu, once the mode dial is set for video mode shooting. In manual operation, ISO can be set manually as well by the photographer, or it can be automatic ó choose a reasonable lens aperture and shutter speed, and the camera will hold those values and automatically vary the ISO as light levels change, providing an interesting alternative to fully automatic exposure. Shutter speeds for video operation range from 1/30th second (1/60th at the 50/60fps settings) to 1/4000th.
Audio Control:
Itís here that the EOS 60D breaks new ground, in terms of features built-in to the camera. It offers the following features for sound recording during video shooting:
  • Built-in microphone (mono sound), with standard 3.5mm stereo jack for external microphones
  • Choice of automatic or manual recording level control for sound (in manual, the user can select from a 64-step range to maintain consistent recording levels, depending on ambient conditions). Sound recording can also be disabled completely, if the user desires.
  • Built-in Wind Filter (selectable in ďsound recordingĒ menu, when in video mode); can easily be switched on or off (out-of-the-box default setting is off)
The EOS 60D is the first Canon EOS HD SLR to have these audio recording features in-camera at the time of its introduction.
High-definition and standard-definition video options:
Whether you are shooting video for the web, or looking for a cinematic feel, the Canon EOS 60D provides flexibility when choosing a frame rate for your project.
Like previous EOS HD SLRs, the EOS 60D offers a full range of recording sizes and frame rates in its shooting menu, when itís set to video mode:
  • Full HD 1920x1080, at either 24fps (actual 23.976) or 30fps (actual 29.97). In PAL mode, either 24fps (actual 23.976) or 25fps (actual 25.00)
  • HD 1280x720, at either 60 fps (actual 59.94) or 50fps (actual 50.00)
  • Standard definition 640x480, at either 60fps (actual 59.94) or 50 fps (actual 50.00)
  • Crop mode: 640x480, at 60 or 50 fps ó crops the video image so you record with effectively about 7x the magnification youíd get in other video recording sizes. An interesting choice when itís necessary to really zero-in on distant subjects. This feature is shared with the current Canon EOS Rebel T2i camera as well.
At a time when many competitive digital SLRs are limited to resolutions below Full HD 1920x1080, and/or provide restricted frame rates, the EOS 60D is ready out of the box to tackle more challenging video projects, and provide great image quality along with flexibility.
The Vari-angle LCD Monitor, the first on a Canon EOS HD SLR, is a tremendous benefit for certain video applications. The LCD monitor hinges on the left side of the camera body offering far more articulation than those monitors that tilt outward from the camera body.
Vari-angle LCD monitor:
EOS 60D is the first Canon EOS SLR ever to have a variable-angle LCD monitor, and this is a tremendous benefit for certain video applications. The monitorís versatility means that users can do anything from angling it to shield it from bright sunlight to comfortably shooting overhead or floor-level shots. The monitorís slightly wider 3:2 aspect ratio means a larger image during video shooting, whether in HD with its 16:9 ratio, or in standard-def mode.
Equally important is that the LCD monitor hinges on the left side of the camera body. Compared to some competitive models, this is a significant enhancement: the monitorís movement is never constrained by being mounted on a tripod or bracket, or even with a battery grip attached (as can be the case with monitors that hinge at the bottom of the LCD). And it offers far more articulation than those monitors that tilt outward from the camera body.
This high-resolution monitor has over 1,000,000-dot resolution, further enhancing its value during video shooting.
The LCD will display the Electronic Level, and when the camera is level the horizontal indicator will change color from red to green.
Electronic Level Display:
Before you begin shooting video, a press or two on the rear INFO button will call up the EOS 60Dís Electronic Level Display on the LCD monitor. This intuitive display will show, with an accuracy of about 1 degree, when the camera is positioned to keep horizons perfectly straight, or when itís tilted slightly ó a terrific aid for positioning the EOS 60D, especially for subjects that donít have pronounced straight lines, or when shooting subjects at a strong angle.
Summary:
Itís not any ONE feature that makes the EOS 60D so appealing for HD video shooting; itís the combination of attributes in a well-designed, compact yet solid package. Sacrificing none of the image quality or performance of previous EOS HD SLRs, the 60D adds capabilities like its in-camera audio control, the first vari-angle LCD monitor ever in an EOS camera, and a very useful Electronic Level Display. This is on top of the many features seen in previous EOS models like the more-expensive EOS 7D and EOS 5D Mark II, such as manual or automatic exposure control, image control with Canonís Picture Style settings, and the superb low-light recording capabilities EOS cameras have become famous for.
Considering its relative affordability and powerful HD video feature set (which in some ways surpasses that of more expensive EOS bodies), the EOS 60D has the ability to be an important tool for the serious video enthusiast.
