The BEST of New York Comic Con 2016



It's that time of the year - New York Comic Con takes over the Javits Center once again! From top notch cosplay to immersive exhibits, you can expect to see anything at Comic Con and that is what makes it so much fun. You never know what you are going to see.  Who knows, you may even encounter a celebrity or two roaming around the show floor just like I did when I found the Icon, Sting!

Personally, this was my second year attending and I could not have been more excited to go. I even dressed up in an awesome Pokémon GO cosplay repping Team Instinct!  Every year somehow seems to top the last (and I didn't think anything would be able to top last year's Nimbus cloud cosplay). If you would like to see the exhibits, highlights and adventures direct from the show, check out my latest videos on this page to catch up on all of the action! Here's to next years Comic Con...this one is going to be very hard to top!

Until next time!

Meet Mevo The Live Event Camera



Meet Mevo The Live Event Camera. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you probably have seen me posting quite a bit about this little camera lately. It is a true game changer for streaming and video production. Not only does it offer real-time editing via the free iPhone app but it also works as a multi-camera setup for streaming! What once required gigantic hardware to accomplish can now be done in this tiny package. Hard to believe little things like this are capable of such performance, eh?

How it works is actually pretty simple. The lens is a super wide angle similar to a Go Pro (without the fisheye effect) and the app on your iPhone allows you to select certain parts of the frame. This makes it seem as if you are switching and editing between multiple different cameras. If you are familiar with TV studios and professional production setups you will know very well how this works. Mevo did a tremendous job putting this camera together, it does what it advertises very well. So why waste any more time? Take a look at the video above to learn everything you need to know about the new Mevo camera and see it in action!

Stay tuned for more awesome stuff on the way!

How to Create & EDIT 360 Virtual Reality Video!



No matter how you look at it, Virtual Reality and 360 video is the future of video production. So many large companies are backing the technology and innovating in this new space for supremacy. Remember, no matter how high the resolution on a computer monitor or TV screen gets, there will always be a "glass ceiling" on innovation and that ceiling can easily be shatter by giving audiences the ability to interact with the content they are watching. Virtual Reality and 360 video is a huge step in the right direction towards making this happen because now anyone can create it.

From 360 degree cameras to virtual reality headsets, new technology is popping up each and everyday giving people the ability to escape reality and hop into virtual worlds. Luckily, not only is VR an immersive viewing experience but it is also a simple experience to create content for. If you know how to edit video, basically all you need is an idea and a 360 camera - it just involves two to three extra steps.
