Jesse Dylan isn't the first director to make the jump from music videos to feature films, but he's certainly one of the most creative and successful. He is also a prolific director at the forefront of the commercial production field. Combine these talents with his career as a photographer, and you have a portrait of an artist fluent in both the message and the medium.
Jesse began his career directing music videos for a diverse collection of groundbreaking artists that include Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Tom Petty, and Lenny Kravitz. His most recent work includes music videos for Nelly Furtado and The Eels. Working with the Black Eyed Peas on an Internet project for Snickers, Jesse forged a bond with will.i.am, who recently sought his services again to collaborate on a project for Barack Obama. The result, a song/video/speech, the Yes We Can Song, which started out virally online and has been seen by tens of millions of viewers since its debut in February 2008. In addition, it has most recently won an Emmy Award. For more information please visit *******www.apbspeakers****.

Creative Framing: I want a swooping crane shot for a dinner table scene. Unfortunately we have the location for only two hours and the lead actress had to bail to work the dinner shift at the steak house that actually pays her for her time. And I don't have a crane. Creative framing can save a scene in a situation like this, if you can isolate why the scene is necessary and frame your shot to highlight that exact point. In the video I use a really simple example: I need to establish a fun high school party, but I don't have any extras at this hour of the night, only crew people. Using creative framing, sfx, and the score I got my shot, established the party and moved onto the next major debilitating issue :) graduatesmovie****
Want to introduce your child to the world of moving pictures? [ *******www.chinavasion****/ef2a ].
Sometimes its hard knowing exactly how to get your children involved in an interest. Buying equipment that's too expensive, or difficult to use can kill a budding interest faster than the time it takes for it to stick its head out of the ground.
The Fast and Easy Entry Level Camcorder [ *******www.chinavasion****/ef2a ] is not only inexpensive it's also relatively accessible as it runs off three AAA batteries and shoots to the commonly used AVI format and comes with an incredibly easy to use interface. And with a refresh rate of 30fps anything they shoot will be ready for YouTube the instant they take it off the camera.
Check it out now at [ *******www.chinavasion****/ef2a ] or see more great camcorders at [*******www.chinavasion****/index.php/cName/digital-camcorders-entry-level-camcorders/ ].
Scott Kirsner, Editor of CinemaTech and contributor to Variety, will be one of the hosts of a conference called "The Conversation" taking place October 17-18 in Berkeley. The focus will be on the interaction of cinema, online video, and games. Andy interviewed Kirsner last week at the EmTech08 conference at MIT.
Liz Gannes writes today that NewTeeVee readers can get a 10 percent discount to the conference.
Unlike many digital media conferences, The Conversation will be geared more toward content creators than software developers, Kirsner says. Instead of watching demos, attendees will participate in "fireside chats" and roundtables.
In the segment, Kirsner also discusses his new book, "Inventing the Movies: Hollywood's Epic Battle Between Innovation and the Status Quo, from Thomas Edison to Steve Jobs," which came out in September.
We wish we could make it to the conference; hope you can.
