CONTENT COMES TO LIFE IN LAS VEGAS

The annual NAB Show, held April 16-21 in Las Vegas, provided a unique opportunity for post-production professionals to explore emergent sound and image technologies within the seminar programs, in addition to reviewing the latest system offerings in a companion exhibition, which attracted a reported 1,870 exhibitors with an attendance of more than 103,000. Adopting a core theme this year of “Where Content Comes to Life,” it was obvious from the type of sessions and workshops being offered that this show is now more about the creation, post-production and delivery of a wide range of content via over-the-air, broadband and related to-the-consumer channels, as was the case a decade ago.

THE SOUND OF TWO SUPERHEROES CLASHING

Arguably the most anticipated film this spring, Zack Snyder’s 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,' which opened March 25 through Warner Bros., continues the heroic conflict that formed the final act of 'Man of Steel '(2013), while introducing several new DC Comics characters for the director’s planned sequels, currently titled The Justice League. In the meanwhile, fearing that the actions of Superman (Henry Cavill) cannot be left unchecked, Batman (Ben Affleck) takes on the famed Man of Steel, while the world wrestles with what kind of superhero it really needs. With Batman and Superman fighting each other, a new threat — Doomsday — is created by Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg).

Two months ago, across an assembly-room table in a factory in Jacksonville, Florida, President Barack Obama was talking to [Andrew Sorkin, writing in The New York Times] about the problem of political capital. His efforts to rebuild the U.S. economy from the 2008 financial crisis were being hit from left, right and center. And yet, by his own assessment, those efforts were vastly underappreciated.

MICHAEL JONES
ASSISTANT EDITOR:
"My biggest challenge is that the role and responsibilities of an assistant editor continue to expand while our time schedules continue to shrink. So for me, it's about staying calm and prioritizing; then I handle each task as quickly and effectively as I can."
