Where Imagination Thrives
NAB 2013 From A to Z*
By Christine Bunish
In production and postproduction, where technical knowledge and skills combine with creativity, it’s vital that the next generation of video and filmmakers get hands-on experience with today’s tools – and that working professionals keep up with new equipment and workflows. In this issue Markee 2.0 looks at a sampling of high schools and colleges that are providing young people with real-world gear and experiences to prepare them for the work force. We also showcase some of the programs that industry professionals can pursue to stay on the cutting edge.
And the cutting edge is a moving target. With video picture resolution moving beyond HD, image capture in 2K, 3K, 4K and even 5K is not uncommon and 2K and 4K post pipelines are no longer rare as our High(er) Resolution feature explains.

Remembering Hilary Araujo and Tim Hetherington
Markee 2.0 notes the passing of two individuals whose passion for their work made their mark on the industry in very different ways.
Hilary Araujo, vice president of marketing for The Tiffen Company, died after a short illness. His lifelong love of photography led to product and marketing posts at Berkey, GMI Photographic, ToCAD and Tiffen, and he will be remembered for the many outstanding personal and professional qualities that made him stand out in a fast-changing industry where busy-ness often takes priority over the human touch. Mr. Araujo was recently named an Associate Member of the ASC, an unprecedented honor for someone who was not a working cinematographer.
Photojournalist and filmmaker Tim Hetherington was killed covering the front line in Misrata, Libya. He focused on politics and world affairs photographing the documentaries Liberia: An Uncivil War and The Devil Came on Horseback, about Darfur, before spending extensive time embedded with a U.S. Army platoon in Afghanistan where he co-directed the feature doc Restrepo with Sebastian Junger. Restrepo captured the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2010 and was nominated for an Academy Award earlier this year.

A blue sky sprawls between ridges frosted in deep evergreen, framing Alder Gulch much as when Native American tribes traversed this landscape 800 years ago. The town of Virginia City sprang up virtually overnight in the summer of 1863; within one year, it was the largest city in the Inland Northwest, with an estimated 10,000 residents. These days, few people continue seeking gold in Alder Gulch. But for filmmakers seeking ready-made Old West locations, the towns of Virginia City and Nevada City offer one more chance to strike it rich.
