Where Imagination Thrives
NAB 2013 From A to Z*
By Christine Bunish
It’s the season for industry awards and televised award shows. Broadcasts of the Golden Globes, SAG Awards and Oscars may be high on glitz, short on hosting talent and include some questionable nominees and glaring oversights, but they do serve to remind us that film plays a major role in all of our lives.
This issue of Markee 2.0 aims to do the same thing. In our annual salute to the ASC Lifetime Achievement and Career Achievement Award winners, Roger Deakins and Michael O'Shea, respectively, we profile two cinematographers whose work in films and television symbolizes the best of the industry over the past 25 years.
We also explore Digital Domain's extraordinary VFX for Tron: Legacy, a film that succeeded with a delicate balancing act — pleasing baby boomers who have long waited for a sequel to Tron and engaging a new generation of moviegoers. Check out companion pieces on Laser Pacific’s DI and finishing for Tron: Legacy and Vicon House of Moves' motion-capture contributions.
On a different note, in this issue music libraries speak out about trends in their business, some of which are prompting growth. And film commissioners, production companies, post facilities and rental houses tell us what makes the Southeast such a powerhouse in film and television production today. Making TV describes the camerawork that brings Blue Bloods to life every week, and Making Commercials shows that it takes Animal Logic to make the new Nike Air Jordan campaign a hit.

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.
