Interview with Brian Burling of eMotimo (Podcast 433)

Today I’m really happy to bring you an interview with Brian Burling, founder of eMotimo, a San Francisco based company that makes the TB3, a 3-axis motion-controlled camera robot that allows you to capture moving timelapse, video and stop motion video more easily and affordably than ever before.

Use this audio player to listen to the interview:

As this was a recording, there is no transcript today, but here are some of the questions I posed to Brian in our discussion:

How did you get started in photography?

How did you come to start your company eMotimo?

Tell us what’s so special about the TB3?

What is the TB3 be used for? (Motion control, time-lapse, stop motion etc.)

Provide us with three tips to get better images to create a stunning time-lapse video?

How can people buy the TB3 and what sort of prices are we looking at?

How can we get in touch with eMotimo?

Podcast 317 : An Interview with Dan & David Newcomb

Podcast 317 : An Interview with Dan & David Newcomb

Many of you let me know how much you enjoyed our Interview with MBP Community member Graham Morgan in episode 305, and some people asked me to do more, so today, I am really pleased to bring to a chat with Dan Newcomb. Dan has been an active member of the community for many years now, and almost every month helps to keep the standard of the images entered to our Photography Assignment incredibly high.

Dan is not only an amazingly talented photographer, but along with his brother David, they create incredibly Time Lapse videos which they share on their YouTube channel. Vancouver City went viral, and has had almost 2 million views as of January 2012, and remains one of my favorite videos when I have a few minutes to sit and relax.

And below is Dan & David’s new video called “The Great Reno Balloon Race”. They created this in 3D, so if you have a 3D TV or some 3D glasses for your computer you can enjoy the video to it’s full. They have also made it available in 2D though, for us mere mortals. You can also subscribe to Dan and David’s YouTube Channel to receive an email when future videos are posted.

Here also are seven of Dan’s photos that we discussed for the first 45 minutes or so of our chat.
