Is EF the Right Lens Mount for the BMPCC 6K?


The new $2500 BMPCC 6K from Blackmagic is obviously huge news, but we are left wondering if EF was the right lens choice.


The original Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K was a huge, huge, huge hit. They basically can’t keep them on the shelves and are popping up everywhere you look. The combination of 4K resolution, RAW capture, and a $1295 price point was just impossible to beat.



While we enjoyed the camera, one of our frustrations was that in many ways it felt more like an evolution of the original Blackmagic Cinema Camera (BMCC) than the original Pocket, since honestly, you couldn’t fit it in your pocket. It even looked a bit like the BPCC.



Yesterday, in their press presentation, Blackmagic acknowledged that and released what we can really think of as the updated BMCC: the new 6K EF mount Super35mm sensor sized Pocket Cinema Camera 6K.

Tarantino Has Something Special Planned for His Final Film


Tarantino describes his final film as “epilogue-y.” What could that possibly mean?


It’s fun to think about movie directors traveling the world for inspiration, but generally, they do so to promote their latest work. For Tarantino, that meant heading to Moscow for some press for the first time since 2004. He was met by legions of fans and critics excited for his latest film.



But even cooler than that, he gave some hints about what he plans to do next.

Play Dead Takes Deck of Cards Illustration to the Next LevelabduzeedoAug 08, 2019

Riffle Shuffle approached Steven Harrison to design and illustrate a deck of playing cards based off his previous personal project titled ‘Go for it’. Evolving the original image to work in this format and further developing this style to work throughout the deck. The outcome is awesome deck of cards with a radical look, I would love to see skateboard decks with that style of illustration. If you love them like I do, pick up a deck at riffleshuffle.com. Also, prints are available from the shop

For anyone working in the non-profit sector, the SXSW Community Service Awards provide valuable exposure for individuals as well as organizations that could lead to future partnerships and collaborations. The inspiring work being done by other honorees can serve as inspiration for even the most seasoned in the non-profit sector. Individuals that are honored get the opportunity to select a 501c3 of their choice to donate to while organizations receive a grant to continue on with their work in their community.

To be considered, applications must be submitted before the September 6, 2019 deadline. We asked SXSW Programmer Chloe Quakenbush to highlight her main tips for anyone looking to submit an application and here’s what she had to say.

Tips for Community Service Awards Applications

  • Be specific – detail your breadth of work, programs, and outreach.

  • Make sure to provide website links!

  • There are six categories to apply to, so pick the one that best represents your organization’s overall audience or mission – but, the Austin/Central Texas category is the best for groups that are local regardless of other affiliation.

  • Don’t forget to send tax exemption proof to communitygrant@sxsw.com

  • Organizations and individuals within an organization can be nominated for awards, but only one application per individual/organization. Multiple nomination entries are not accepted, however SXSW reserves the right to place an entry in a different category than its original entry if we feel it fits better somewhere else.

Micro-Interactions Inspiration: A Roundup by Barthelemy Chalvet and more

Micro-Interactions Inspiration: A Roundup by Barthelemy Chalvet and moreAoiroStudioAug 05, 2019

A new Pure Design Inspiration is up! One burst of inspiration roundup to kick it off. For this week, all the submissions hand-picked from Dribbble are all about ‘micro-interactions’. What is it? On an interface, say after the execution on an action per se, a little animation pops in, that’s a micro-interaction. They are designed to delight the user, to welcome, to engage and to create a moment in goals of a successful action and/or satisfaction. By still giving a sense of control, it’s a very powerful practice in UX design. In this collection we are featuring the work from Barthelemy Chalvet, Selçuk Avcı, Jitu Raut, Robin Holesinsky and more.

An Innovative Car-Sharing solution concept – Interaction Design

An Innovative Car-Sharing solution concept – Interaction DesignAoiroStudioAug 05, 2019

Ok, Intellias shared a very interesting UI/UX case study on a solution of what would be an ‘innovative car-sharing solution’. Let ‘s explore this concept. For starters, right off the bat, I took a genuine interest to feature their project, not because of the layout presentation, UI work and/or interface transitions. But for the process. They kindly share what they have learned from the process as for the feature per se, personas, a customer journey map, use cases list and a lot more. People tend to judge a solution based on what they see but it is much more than that. I do appreciate the store-telling behind this case study so we (as readers) can understand more about what went through the process and their learnings. Make sure to check out the entire project on Behance.

Intellias has developed an innovative car-sharing service concept that brings the way we use cars to the brand-new level. You just search, choose, set time and date, and drive.

Discover Switzerland: Hand-picked from Unsplash

Discover Switzerland: Hand-picked from UnsplashAoiroStudioAug 05, 2019

Bonjour la Suisse! To me, Switzerland is the country origin of the famous “triangular-shaped” chocolate brand Toblerone and the Swiss Alps. Fortunately, this country offers much more and how about a country bordered by Italy to the south, France to the west, Germany to the north, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east. That’s amazing right? How about Switzerland makes half of the world’s production of luxury watches including leading brands founded in the country like Rolex, TAG Heuer, Tissot and more. One last little fact, more than 1500 lakes in Switzerland containing around 6% of Europe’s freshwater stocks. To continue this discovery, I decided to share a collection of hand-picked photos from Unsplash. Give it a look!
