Making your first film and wish to improve the post-production workflow? A recent panel hosted by SAG-AFTRA aims to help.


With an endless amount of scheduling, budgeting, and constant decisionmaking, preparation on your first short film can prove a daunting task. Each experience offers its own set of obstacles. As such, your post-production workflow is one challenge you should consider tackling early in the process, and the sooner you do, the less you may find yourself saying, “we’ll fix it in post.”



At a recent panel by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation, four filmmakers—producer Simon Taufique, producer Mridu Chandra, editor Robert Wilson, and producer Raj Trivedi—shared their insight and tips on running a smoother post-production schedule. We’ve pulled out highlights from the discussion below.

Web Design Inspiration – Work of Adrián Somoza

Web Design Inspiration – Work of Adrián Somoza

I have been posting more often about web design. There reason is, of course, I am in the process of redesigning the blog and I need some web design inspiration. For this post I’d love to feature the work of  Adrián Somoza, a senior designer @MediaMonks, based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. 

The work has a lot of style and some patterns that I’ve been noticing more often on sites like Dribbble and Behance that is the use of some modular design with clear blocks of colors. The motion design is another important feature of these designs. They tend to take advantage of the modular approach to create some subtle but yet beautiful transitions. Below I selected a few pieces to share with you

Illustration: Space Park: Cosmic Canyon by Brian Miller

We love the work of Brian Miller on ABDZ. He is an illustrator based in Erie, Colorado, USA; living in a beautiful landscape as a background like Colorado. It must have been really inspiring! We are taking a look at his piece entitled: Space Park: Cosmic Canyon and it’s always a pleasure to take a look at his process and some close-up shots.

For those who may not know, Space Park is a board game designed by Henry Audubon and the fine folks at Keymaster Games which will be launching through kickstarter soon. Players ride rockets to extraordinary realms throughout the galaxy collecting exotic crystals and badges as they set out to become the next great space explorer!

Savvy Studio's Brand Identity for Omakase Room by Tatsu

Savvy Studio’s Brand Identity for Omakase Room by Tatsu

If you’re jonesing for a most unique sushi experience that will have you dreaming about booking that trip to Japan without getting on a long haul flight look no further than NYC’s Omakase Room by Tatsu. Omakase dining entails a chef-led experience where every item served is in absolute season, frequently flown in fresh straight from Tokyo’s Tsukiji fish market. We’re definitely going to save up for experiencing Omakase Room in New York but in the meantime we’ll just lust after the beautiful brand identity of this famed establishment from the talented folks over at Savvy Studio. The overall concept by chef Tatsuya Sekiguchi results in an “ambient, sensory experience that allows the food to shine.” Every detail was intricately examined to meet the discerning eye of the client. From font choice and even kerning to color palette and scent design, the marriage of every element is an absolute gorgeous union celebrating the wonderful culture that is Japan. Enjoy a peek below at the various design elements including font choices, color palette and unique integration of scent. We’re truly smitten with the clean and calming brand identity that allows for this most unique dining experience to shine through.
