SAY WHAT?!?!

"New Prince album coming under Warner Bros. partnership"

AND all of Prince's albums, from 1978's "For You" to the new one.

Never mind that it's Warner Bros. (live and let live), but most intriguingly: is Prince getting back into the game? That's awesome!

The Purple One plans a new album, 30th-anniversary 'Purple Rain' reissue and more.

4K! UHD! It's very big TV (in pixel counts, anyway...four times the size of HD). Here's a detailed review: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304572204579503540257173348

PERSONAL NOTE: One thing ignored in this review is that 4K on large screen TVs can create high-quality GLASSES-FREE 3D! I saw it a couple times myself at NAB Show 2014 last week. In normal light, standing 45° off center, about 12' away from the TV, and wearing NO glasses, I watched sharp, clear 3D. It is one of the things that will result from 4K adoption.

It's cheaper because of "narrow networks"... In other words less doctors accept it... So it's actually more expensive.
 
FILMMAKERS: What are your thoughts?
Indie filmmakers: I am researching news at NAB Show and will be writing articles on the subject of 4K. Here are questions for YOU.


QUESTIONS ABOUT INDIE FILM PRODUCTION:

[1.] Do you understand the concept of "4K"?

[2.] Do you consider the image quality of 4K to be similar to that of 35mm film?

[3.] Do you believe 4K is an important part of the future of indie filmmaking?

[4.] Are you familiar with the current workflow and systems demands of 4K?

[5.] Do you expect the transition from HD to 4K to be similar to the transition from SD to HD?

[6.] Will you be, or are you already, shooting 4K?

Let me know what articles I could write that might interest you.
