Posted Nov. 23, 2017, 3:47 p.m.
era vulgaris

As the good ole shock jock Plato so eloquently put it, music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue. Loudspeakers are instrumental for that kind of education. A crossover network, transducers, an enclosure, additional parts and the complicated interactions of the aforementioned parts form the system of a loudspeaker. A system more complex than the aforementioned paragraph would have you think: Each and every facet of a loudspeaker’s performance and the resulting cost comes with a trade-off, which makes it difficult to come loudspeakers from different manufacturers. Sure, one might be able to compare single specifications, but then again it does not speak for the performance as a whole. As I ...

Ashley Lynch on film editing

Posted July 11, 2016, 2:50 p.m.
Beyond Casual Observation

For this edition of Beyond Casual Observation, Ashley Lynch, owner of Burnaby, BC-based Gingerbreadgirl Post—a versatile post-production studio that specializes in genre film-editing, colour grading and theatrical trailer campaigns—stepped away from a busy schedule to answer a few questions for us.
