4 Post • April 2014 editor's note Television today and NAB 2014 F or pros in the post production industry, April marks a time when they head to Las Vegas for the annual National Association of Broadcasters convention — a place where they can check out all of the latest products and even get previews of upcoming technolo- gies that may affect their studio's workflow. Manufacturers also place incredible importance on the NAB show, as it's a platform to debut new products and even more importantly, create a buzz that can reverberate long after the show's week-long run ends. As members of the press, we are often tipped off to pending announcements planned for NAB, and this year is no exception. Canon, Panasonic and Sony will all show new cameras at their booths. Sony, in fact, will preview an upgrade path that will allow buyers of its F5 to step up to the F55's features at a later point in time. This is part of Sony's plan to future-proof technology and reassures buyers that they are making the right invest- ment. Sony will also preview V.4.0 of its "crown jewel," the F65 digital cinema camera, which, going forward, will feature live grading capabilities. This month, Post takes a special look at broadcast content, with two features that focus on television programming. Christine Bunish checks in with studios that are providing visual effects services for shows such as Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Under the Dome (pictured) and Dracula (our cover this month), among others (see page 16). In each instance, efficiency is key in making their client's broadcast deadlines while ensuring the shows look top notch. Jennifer Walden also looks at television content in her "Audio For TV" feature on page 36. Specifically, she focuses on audio post facilities that are creating supernatural soundtracks for science-fiction programming — including the show Supernatural. If you are wondering how pros score jobs at facilities like these, check out our "Getting Started" feature on page 28. Here, seven pros detail their career paths, dating back to early inspirations, training and first jobs. So many wanted to share their experiences that we are posting more online, so visit for more first-hand accounts on breaking into this field. And Iain Blair talks with Noah director Darren Aronofsky, who was tasked with creating an end-of-the-world, theatrical epic during a real-life hurricane. There's lots more too, so enjoy the issue!
