The Pod Bay Door is closed…talent is out…

When a boy comes of age at 13-years-old he has become a “bar mitzvah” and is recognized by Jewish tradition as having the same rights as a full grown man. A boy who has become a Bar Mitzvah is now morally and ethically responsible for his decisions and actions. The term “bar mitzvah” also refers to the religious ceremony that accompanies a boy becoming a Bar Mitzvah. Often a celebratory party will follow the ceremony and that party is also called a bar mitzvah.

The Viewfinders had the pleasure of covering Louis Shulman’s Bar Mitzvah. After the ceremony, fun and games and celebrity appearances… and adulthood, awaited. The link here is to the highlight video of his coming of age party.

Sites like YouTube and Vimeo have changed everything for photographers, in particular, wedding photographers.  While its great when a client posts their wedding video for the world to see, it can create a nightmare for photographers that use unlicensed music, as Joe Simon found out after he put together the video for Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo.

As reported by ABC, Simon was threatened with a lawsuit and settled out of court after the video featuring Cold Play’s “Fix You” went viral.  The rest of the report goes on to talk about the licencing issues with small independent photographers/artists and recording artists.

We here at the studio have struggled with this issue ourselves.  We have looked for royalty free music that our clients want to hear with little success.  We see unlicensed music used all the time by photographers trying to appease their clients.  So that brought up a great questions.  Do we as photographers and videographers, who try to protect our rights get compensation for our craft have a moral obligation to pay for licencing of music, even if it will never be posted publicly?

This post was inspired by a question that was recently posed to my business partner and me.  We were asked about any new gear and/or techniques we employ for our video production while using our DSLR’s.  This prompted a furious search of the web for what is out there and coming soon.  Honestly, I didn’t find very much.  We would love to hear from our fellow Tech Monsters what gear they have been reading about and testing…off brands are ok too!
