We've been in the fields of computer language design and computer
operating system design for more years than we'd like to tell you.
It was from this expertise that we moved into the field of video,
creating a half-million dollar video studio for IBM Research around
an electronic magazine which we published.
Because of this background, we specialize in videos about computer projects, though we're more than happy to make one about anything you want.
WHAT WE'VE DONE
We've made videos about physically-based animation and videos about computer departments. We've interviewed the computer greats and we've comforted the camera shy. We've traveled west to California and taken camera crews to North Carolina.
We've made music videos of research before it was ever released -- handwriting recognition and video on a PC and collaborative work through groupware. These videos have been accepted at conferences all over the world. They've been carried by IBM vice-presidents to major talks; they've sat in interactive form in the lobby of IBM Research and on the library shelves of IBM branches everywhere.
We've taught video workshops around the country and acted as Video Co-chair for the Multimedia'93 Conference. We've stayed at the state of the art with courses in Editing the Scene with Ralph Rosenblum, the editor of The Pawnbroker, with attendance at National Association of Broadcasters conventions, with membership in the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, and with papers on digital video and on non-linear editors.
WHAT WE CAN DO
We can edit in our sleep -- and sometimes do! Though we'd prefer to have projects with less catastrophic deadlines.
Our studio is fitted out with broadcast SuperVHS decks, and we use our own edit controller to run them frame-accurately in VITC (vertical interval time code). That gives us not only easy logging capabilities, but also the flexibility to work with large projects that need special case accomodations.
For video shoots, we use a three-chip Panasonic Supercam camera with variable shutter speed to minimize or eliminate annoying computer monitor flicker. The captured images from this camera have to be seen to be believed. We also come with a full Lowell lighting package, and even powder for your nose.
"START" is a video made for the MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. It uses a scenario of smuggling spent nuclear fuel rods into a foreign country to demonstrate how the START system can answer English language queries about the laboratory which are directed to a website.

Designed for the BBN Speech and Language Processing Department, "User-Centered Communications in a Networked, Mobile World" uses indoor and outdoor scenarios to show how English language computer interactions can occur in the future using small portable computers and cell phones.

Meant as an advertisement aimed at future conference attendees of the CHI'94 conference (Computer/Human Interactions), the CHI video uses a wedding video style to capture the technical and non-technical parts of the program of this five day meeting.
