    This October, Studio/monthly will feature HD tips by Star Circle Pictures Producer/Director Kimball Carr. The latest installment in Hands-On HD, (its popular series bringing together leading craftspeople working on independent film, commercials, programming and corporate and educational projects) is designed to be a go-to guide for practical advice on production and post technique for HD.

     Since Star Circle Pictures has been much highlighted for tapeless HD workflow (See September’s Fast Company magazine), Carr will be covering the production flow he designed around shooting and posting HD in a tapeless direct to hard drive environment for SAMARITAN.  Key items in Carrs coverage will include: the use of Panasonic’s P2 media card recording technology; fully computer-based storyboard previsualization; on location full HD monitoring of footage both at camera and in the computer; and finally post production using Apple’s Final Cut Pro HD suite.

    The feature will reach 55,000 readers of Studio/monthly magazine, as well as a combined online audience of some 80,000 monthly visitors to,www. and

     Carr’s feature is scheduled to appear in the last week of September in the print version, and then on October 1 online. (for daily news, video, forums and links to Studio/monthly, HD|Studio, DIStudio and Film&
