Rivalry on the Ice There is almost no rivalry in professional sports that matches the intensity of one in the National Hockey League. It is not just team against team, but city against city competing against each other in rivalries that have been passed down through generations. Which is one of the reasons why the Winter Classic has become a huge success. Every year, the NHL highlights hockey the way it used to be played: Outside, open to the elements, and in front of thousands of screaming fans. All while featuring teams that have forged generations of bitter rivals. One of these heated rivalries is between the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins. These two teams are members of the "Original Six", the first professional hockey teams in the NHL, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. ...Read More »

The Cinema 4D R17 Lens Distortion Tool By Stephen Schleicher Maxon introduced a number of new features in Cinema 4D R17 when it was released last year. While the Motion Tracker is a fantastic tool to track footage and composite 3D elements, often wide angle footage introduces perspective errors in the final rendered image. Unless the user knows what camera was used to capture the source footage, the focal length of the lens, and the field of view, correcting that footage, or adding the lens distortion to the 3D elements is a tricky and sometimes frustrating experience. ...Read More »

Parachute Creates a Legendary Ballgame in an Empty Stadium for Chrysler with Blackmagic Fusion Studio When Miguel Cabrera swings the bat, there's usually a stadium full of screaming fans around him. However, for Chrysler's "Miggy at the Bat" commercial, the stands were empty. The commercial celebrating the 2015 Chrysler 200 centered on Cabrera in an updated "Casey at the Bat" tale and featured the legendary showdown between batter and pitcher. In reality, Cabrera and the pitcher were worlds apart, in Detroit and Los Angeles, surrounded by green screens and needed NYC's Parachute to create the scenery and game around the players. The Parachute team, led by founder Sam O'Hare, created the spot by building a stadium and providing the setting for the infamous strike out (and later, added comeback.) Using different software for various components to build the stadium, Parachute relied on Blackmagic Design's advanced visual effects (VFX) and motion graphics solution, Fusion Studio, to bring everything together. ...Read More »
