GARDA THOUGHT HE COULD DIE AFTER MAN PRODUCED GUN IN PUB ROW

first_imgJohn Moran who denies all charges against him. (North West Newspix)A retired Garda has revealed how he thought he was going to be killed when a man pointed a gun at him during a huge fight outside a Donegal pub.Former Garda John McGrath revealed how he was called to a brawl outside the Orchard Bar in Gleneely on the Ininshowen Peninsula in the early hours of April 5th, 2010. When Garda McGrath and two colleagues arrived, they found a scene of carnage with up to 20 different people including women fighting with each other.A number of those fighting had cuts and were bleeding.As Garda McGrath and his colleagues tried to break up the fighting, a man came towards him and allegedly shouted “I’ll shoot you, I’ll shoot you.”He identified the man as John Moran who had a large cut to his head and was bleeding heavily.Businessman Mr Moran appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court yesterday charged with making threats to kill, possession of .22 revolver, possession of ammunition and threatening and abusive behaviour – all of which he denies.Giving evidence, Garda McGrath said “He (Mr Moran) was very agitated. He said “I’ll shoot you, I’ll shoot you’ – at me and people around me. I was satisfied if the gun was discharged and was so close, one or more of of us would have been mortally injured.“I was extremely frightened. I called out ‘he’s got a gun, he’s got a gun.’ I withdrew from the line of fire and retreated back to Garda van. I then contacted Buncrana Headquarters and requested assistance.”Another of the officers, Garda Declan Coyne also revealed he felt threatened when he saw Mr Moran produce the black handgun.“I ran for my life,” he revealed.The court was told the row had been very violent with a pregnant woman received bang of a door while another man had his jaw broken.A number of younger people who got caught up in the row had to take shelter in the bar.It was revealed in court the gun was actually a ‘starter’s pistol’ which did not require a gun license.Barrister for Moran, Mr Garnet Orange instructed by solicitor Frank Dorrian put it to Garda McGrath that his client was making the threats to a crowd gathered behind him.Mr Moran, of 160 Serpentine Road, Belfast, has a holiday home in Inishowen.Barrister Orange also referred to the fight scene saying “”It was like a scene from Game of Thrones but without the swords.”The case continues today (WED).GARDA THOUGHT HE COULD DIE AFTER MAN PRODUCED GUN IN PUB ROW was last modified: February 3rd, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BelfastdonegalgunJOhn MOranrowlast_img read more

Seamus Coleman also makes a return to the XI. Everton will be looking to make it three Premier League wins in a row while Crystal Palace will be eager to avoid three straight defeats when they face each other at Goodison Park on Sunday.The home side will be feeling confident going into the game having picked up a good 2-1 victory at Leicester last time out and a win today will see them rise to eighth.last_img read more

If Not Nano, Then What? Apple Looks at Budget iPhone

first_imgRelated Posts The week started off with rumors that Apple was planning to “launch a smaller, more affordable iPhone – an iPhone Nano, if you will.” The rumors were largely a result of reports in Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal, but now The New York Times has come along to squash them. According to an article in today’s Times, “contrary to published reports, Apple is not currently developing a smaller iPhone, according to people briefed on Apple’s plans who requested anonymity because the plans are confidential.”The Times’ sources say there are a number of reasons that Apple is not looking to introduce a smaller version of the iPhone, not the least of which being that the smaller size wouldn’t necessarily result in a cheaper iPhone. The smaller size would also cause trouble for app developers, who have enjoyed uniformity of screen size across iPhones, as compared to Android developers who have to deal with a variety of devices. The Time does say, however, that Apple is looking to lower the cost by using different components. “Although the innards of the phone, including memory size or camera quality, could change to offer a less expensive model, the size of the device would not vary,” said the Times’ source, who has worked on multiple versions of the device.What will the company do then? Tags:#Apple#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Another senior Apple executive said during a private meeting recently that it did not make sense for the company to make multiple iPhone models, noting that Apple would stick with its practice of dropping the price of older models when it introduced a new one.The iPhone 3GS is now available for $49 with a two-year contract that helps subsidize the price of the device in the United States.As part of its effort to find new customers for the iPhone, Apple plans to make it easier to operate the device through voice commands, removing an obstacle for people who do not like using a virtual keyboard, said another person with knowledge of Apple’s plans.So what does this all boil down to? iPhone Nano? Nope. But perhaps we’ll see a version of the iPhone with even less memory for a lower cost. An iPhone Cloud, if you will.

Video Tutorials: Cinema 4D and After Effects Integration

first_imgExcited for the upcoming integration of Cinema 4D into After Effects?  In this post we share 3 video tutorials that show you how the new Cineware feature will work in future versions of AE.Adobe has announced future integration of Maxon’s Cinema 4D into Adobe’s After Effects, via Cineware and Cinema 4D Lite. The motion design community couldn’t be happier.The current process of prerendering your Cinema 4D files and then bringing them into After Effects is clumsy and time consuming. The integration of Cinema 4D into AE will provide a live 3D pipeline that won’t require any rerendering. Instead you’ll be able to create and modify Cinema 4D files through After Effects.  If a full version of Cinema 4D is installed on your system, AE would open that. Otherwise, Cinema 4D Lite (that will come included in future After Effects versions) will open. Anything you change in Cinema 4D will automatically be updated in After Effects.Ok, so you want to see it in action? Two of the most popular motion graphics gurus online have released their take on the new Cineware/After Effects Integration.The first video tutorial is from our friend, John Dickinson at Motionworks. He gives a 10 minute rundown on how Cinema 4D Lite will work in upcoming versions of After Effects. Tons of good info here, whether you’re a Cinema 4D veteran or are just curious on what it can add to your exisiting After Effects work.Below that we’ve got two video tutrials from the great Nick Campbell from Grayscale Gorilla. One of the tutorials is geared for existing AE users interested in Cinema 4D. The other is targeted for existing Cinema 4D users interested in AE. Take your pick.No doubt the C4D to AE feature will open up 3D motion design to a new legion of video professionals – a great move by both Maxon and Adobe! No details yet when this new release will be available for public purchase.After Effects: Cineware & Cinema 4D Lite by MotionworksCineware and Cinema 4D Lite For After Effects Users by Greyscale GorillaCineware and Cinema 4D Lite For Cinema 4D Users by Greyscale Gorillalast_img read more

How to Write an Effective Logline for Your Next Film or Video

first_imgIdentify Your Characters and Their Goals Let’s take a look at some loglines from popular shows and movies.Nine noble families fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros, while a forgotten race returns after being dormant for thousands of years.Marty McFly, a 17-year-old high school student, is accidentally sent 30 years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his close friend, the maverick scientist Doc Brown.After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail.To craft your logline, begin by identifying your main character. Let’s take the Netflix show Ozark for example.A Chicago-based financial advisor secretly relocates his family to the Missouri Ozarks when his dealings with a drug cartel go awry.We can see here that we begin with a description of our main character. Are there many other characteristics or traits about Marty that we find out later in the series? Yes. However, a logline is a condensed version of only the most essential information.Next, we identify Marty’s main objective: to relocate his family. Again, although he has many goals, this is the foundation of them all: to keep his family out of harm’s way.Lastly, we introduce the main conflict of the story: the drug cartels. By introducing the main conflict into your logline, you tell the audience what stands in the protagonist’s way. If our main character simply moved his family to Missouri and everything was fine, the logline wouldn’t be very tempting.Questions and ConversationLoglines aren’t meant to answer all of the audience’s questions. If it’s an effective logline, it should leave the audience with questions about intrigue. It should open up a line of dialogue that inspires more questions about the plot of your story. If your logline piques the interest of the audience, you know it’s effective. A good logline can relay the message and plot of your film or video during its early stages and on into its release. Cover image via Shutterstock.Brevity We’ve all made that long-winded three-minute spiel about the plot of our next film. And most of the time, we still feel like we’ve left out important aspects of the story. This is where a logline comes in.A logline is essentially a one-to-two sentence summary of the plot of your film. It’s a sentence, or two, that identifies your main character, their motive, and the conflict they face. Yes, that is a lot to squeeze into one or two sentences. However, a logline should be dense and packed with information. No fluff.Loglines will become your elevator pitch. You will recite this time and time again. So crafting a good one is essential.last_img read more

Master Resolve’s Built-In Film Grain with This Rundown

first_imgLooking for more control over your film grain effects? DaVinci Resolve 14 Studio gives you fully customizable options to mimic film stock.With the rise in accessibility of HD cameras, there’s one digital asset that has grown tremendously in popularity over the last decade, and that is film grain. From websites that supply grain overlays (like RocketStock) to companies that provide plugins that can help emulate film stock down to the color properties (such as Film Convert), the options for filmmakers are plentiful. To some, it’s somewhat paradoxical to layer a clean HD image with film grain, but for many, it’s a creative necessity.In the studio version of DaVinci Resolve, there’s a ResolveFX Texture Film Grain effect. You can change the film type, the grain opacity, the composite mode, and plenty more. Given that Resolve 14 Studio now costs just slightly more than most grain plugins, let’s see if it would be worth it to pay a little extra and bag the studio version of Resolve — or if this grain effect is something completely different.(It’s important to note that in Resolve, the grain is a procedurally generated layer of simulated grain. So we’re not receiving a scan of actual film stock. It’s a digital interpretation.)You can add the grain either on the edit page or the color page. However, note that if you add the grain on the edit page, you cannot adjust the settings on the color page — the control settings do not follow through. This goes for all effects applied on the edit page. Therefore, for this insight, we are going to apply our grain effect on the color page.Another important factor is that if you do decide to apply grain, or any effect, on the edit page, your nodes won’t have the FX logo to notify you that there is an effect present. However, if you display the thumbnails of each clip, you’ll be able to see which clips have effects applied to them on the edit page.What effects exactly? That, it doesn’t tell you. Therefore, again, I would suggest applying effects that will affect the color and image quality in the color page.To apply the film grain, first, create a new node, and open the OpenFX panel in the top right corner. With the panel open, scroll down until you find ResolveFX Texture — Film Grain. As the grain is quite far down the list, you can make it easier to find by either searching for the effect with the search tool or setting the grain as a favorite and selecting show favorites only.With the node selected, your effects panel should automatically jump to the settings control of the recently added effect. This is the control panel for adjusting all of the customizable elements of the applied grain. The menu controls are broken into three different categories: main controls, grain params, and advanced controls.The main controls are going to be where you choose which film grain preset you want to work with, and how you want to apply that to your footage. If you open the film menu type, you’ll notice that along with the film size, there are also numbers and letters that appear alongside the size. These represent specific film stocks — different brands will have slightly different grain structures. We’re going to come back to this submenu later because it represents an important distinction over other grain plugins.The param controls will be the settings panel that gives you creative control over the grain elements. For example, in this shot below, I think the grain is a little too strong and too colorful. It resembles ’90s television noise more than 35mm film grain.Therefore by adjusting the strength and saturation, I can adjust this preset to feel more organic. It’s a fantastic feature, and certainly, it’s something that you cannot achieve with a grain overlay.The advanced controls may be the best part of this built-in effect. The panel has three sliders: shadows, midtones, and highlights. These sliders will control the amount of grain that applies to these tonal regions. As a confirmed grain addict, one of the most significant issues I often face is applying a grain texture on a clip where there is already visible noise in the shadows. In this case, the noise becomes more prominent with the added boost from the grain. In Resolve, with these advanced controls, you can control the amount of grain that composites into these regions.To wrap up, let’s jump back to the main controls. When you switch film types, you may notice the lack of artistic difference in the image, especially if you’ve come from using the FilmConvert plugin. As in FilmConvert, a simple switch from 5207 Vis3 to Portra 400 would drastically alter the color, the grain, and even the exposure intensity. And I think this is an important thing to highlight with ResolveFX grain, as it’s not an effect that is going to magically convert your HD media to footage that looks like it was shot with Kodak T200. It’s more of a tool that will help blend digital footage with celluloid footage — a tool that lets you add grain back to a denoised shot. At the very least, it will give you a basic starting point to work on building the 35mm film look. However, this isn’t a FilmConvert-like plugin. You will still need to correctly color the footage and adjust it to mimic a film stock.On that note, for those who seek a method that will help convert their footage into celluloid-like media, this isn’t it, I would suggest looking at the various plugins on the market.Lewis McGregor is a certified BlackMagic Design DaVinci Resolve Trainer.last_img read more
