Randy Shumay: Camera Test Model

Topics:   Java Blog

A couple of our Java Post Production staff were out checking a telephoto lens and came back to the office with some slo-motion footage of our colleague, Randy Shumay, walking down the street. Well, you just know we couldn't possibly let that footage lay around without doing something silly with it, right? Right! So, with tongues firmly placed in cheeks, we present a brief, silly,…

Never be late for a Java Post staff meeting!

Topics:   Java Blog

This past Wednesday, our editor/website/Twitter guy, Doug, was late for a staff meeting. So our boss, Jack, aided by Kevin on visual FX and Randy on camera, decided to pull a prank on Doug, involving his new car (which he'd only had for a few days) and some big steel poles that were being installed right by Doug's parking spot. Moral of the story: never be late for a staff meeting at Java…

Our latest arrival: It's a Drone! (What colour of cigars do we hand out for a DJI S900?)

Topics:   Java Blog

The latest member of our aerial photography fleet arrived yesterday: an DJI S900 hexacopter (6 propellers). That brings our drone total up to FIVE, as the SJI S900 joins our existing four units: a little DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter, a new DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter, our workhorse DJI S800 hexacopter, and our big Foxtech FPV K130 octocoper, AKA "the Kraken." Around the Java Post office, it…

How Thomas Edison Invented Film Piracy.

Topics:   Java Blog

Believe it or not, film piracy goes way back before BitTorrent and those FBI warnings at the beginning of every DVD and Blu-ray disc. As this great Film School'D video from CineFix explains, ripping off films is as old as film itself. Piracy not only changed the movies...it built the movies.

Throwback Thursday: Corner Gas Season One

Topics:   Java Blog

For today's "Throwback Thursday" post, we thought we'd share with you this poster that proudly hangs (or is it "hangs proudly"...well, it definitely hangs, we're certain about that) in the hallway at the Java Post Production office. It's from the first season of the Corner Gas television series, back in 2004. For fans of the show, you'll remember the first…

We Got That B-Roll!

Topics:   Java Blog

This was too hilarious not to share. As anyone who has ever worked in the television news, documentary or commercial business can tell you, "B-Roll" is the term for video footage that typically appears over a narrator's voice. It's not a spokesperson or interview subject speaking on camera. That's called A-Roll. B-Roll is all the other stuff. For example, when a reporter is…

Umbrella Drinks: The Healthy Choice.

Topics:   Java Blog

It's nice to see that our boss, "Java Jack" Tunnicliffe, is maintaining a healthy lifestyle while he's on vacation. That tall, cool, refreshing umbrella drink must contain lots of good, wholesome things. Why, there's a slice of fresh pineapple right there on the rim of the glass. That drink is practically a salad already! And we're sure there are healthy juices in there,…

Freezing our drones off at minus 40C for K+S Potash

Topics:   Java Blog

Thursday, February 26th, 2015. Somewhere near Bethune, Saskatchewan, Canada. The ambient temperature is minus 30 degrees Celsius (minus 22 Fahrenheit), with an added wind-chill factor that makes it feel like a whopping minus 40 degrees Celsius (which conveniently translates to minus 40 Fahrenheit, for our US friends). In conditions like this, any exposed skin can freeze in as little as 10 minutes.…
