Wind expert – Wind Energy Intelligence in the palm of your hand

Cowes, United Kingdom – Wind expert 1.2 for iPad and iPhone is the only app that brings together a large range of wind turbine products, and enables wind farm performance and financial analysis. The app also features a comprehensive database of links to relevant associations, toolkits, government incentives and in-depth market reports.

Wind expert provides wind intelligence readily available in the palm of your hand. It is an essential tool for wind energy professionals, and an ideal companion for renewable energy students and enthusiasts. At a minimal cost, Wind expert can assist decision-making and boost a wind project return on investment.

There is a sense of secrecy about the performance of wind energy. Manufacturers tend to present their product specifications in different formats and use different performance measures. As a result, comparing products from different manufacturers can be very difficult. This is now for the first time collected in a consistent format – integrated with key energy and financial metrics tailored to particular sites.

Wind expert allows users to build their own wind turbines or select a product within the app built-in database (over 270 to chose from). A simple and efficient user interface has been devised to go through project specification and detailed analysis including power curve, energy production, return on investment and cost of energy. A selection of tools and links are also available to provide a full overview and understanding of the wind energy market.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 3/4G iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
* 3.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:

MEWshop and theC47 Present: The Filmmaker’s Intensive 2012

New York, New York – Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEWshop), the cutting-edge authorized digital training destination for post-production and content creators, is pleased to announce its partnership with theC47 for The Filmmaker’s Intensive, an annual two-week filmmaking workshop scheduled for June 9-24, 2012. The program allows both aspiring filmmakers and working professionals to immerse themselves in the multiple disciplines of cinematography, providing a true narrative filmmaking experience from pre- to post-production. Over the course of two weeks, students will live and work together, and gain a deep understanding of both the technical and artistic aspects of filmmaking.

Taught by top instructors and working industry professionals, the two-week program consists of three three-hour filmmaking sessions each day. In week one of The Filmmaker’s Intensive, students work with new video and filmmaking technologies that make it possible for filmmakers to launch projects, film, edit and distribute them on multiple platforms or as submissions to film festivals. Led by Jem Schofield and a team of expert teachers, through hands-on instruction students learn shooting, lighting, recording location sound, editing and more. Week one topics include:

* Collaborative Filmmaking
* Pre-Production
* Camera
* Lighting
* Sound
* Workflow
* Screenwriting
* Developing Scripts
* Pre-Lighting
* Rehearsals
* Directing
* Working with Actors
* Intro to Editing Narrative

Students apply their technical expertise during week two, shooting a short narrative film with a team of filmmakers. Attendees work with scripts and actors, learning to direct them in ways that inject life into the writer’s dialogue and fulfill the collaborative, creative vision for the production. Topics during week two cover:

* Pitching Projects
* Casting
* The Creative Flow: Storyboards, Shot Lists, etc.
* Shooting Techniques for Narrative Film
* Working On Set
* Blocking & Rehearsing
* Directing The Scene
* Processing Dailies
* Editing for Narrative
* Screening

“The Filmmaker’s Intensive is a completely unique program that was designed to give creative people from all over the world the opportunity to learn the process of narrative filmmaking in a completely immersive environment,” says Jem Schofield, founder and director of The Filmmaker’s Intensive. “Its purpose is to help people understand and then apply the principles of film directing, cinematography and editing. The instructors are picked not only because of their experience, but because they are great educators. This gives people a chance to go to film school when they may have not had that opportunity in the past.”

“The Filmmaker’s Intensive is the only program of its kind that allows aspiring filmmakers a truly immersive filmmaking experience. When we say it’s intense, we mean it’s intense – but every single student who’s participated has walked away with an immeasurable wealth of knowledge because of it,” says Josh Apter, founder and president, Manhattan Edit Workshop. “Students travel from all over the world to be a part of The Filmmaker’s Intensive, not only because of the impressive lineup of instructors, but also for the opportunity to work with and learn from their peers. Not a moment goes by during these two weeks that the students aren’t learning. The program is simply invaluable to these filmmakers.”

Echoing the immense value of the program is former Filmmaker Intensive student Angus Oborn. “As completely satisfying as the course was, the greatest pleasures came later. When I walked onto the set of my first big video shoot after TFMI, it was incredibly reassuring to know how it all worked, so I could concentrate on shooting great work,” says Oborn. “The payoff has been huge – not only in terms of raw knowledge, but also in gaining the confidence to take on jobs that only months ago seemed beyond my reach. I can’t imagine how else I would’ve gotten up to speed so quickly.”

This year, The Filmmaker’s Intensive will take place at the SUNY Purchase campus, just a stone’s throw away from the world’s most inspiring city – New York. Students will learn and live together in the university environment, and some of the program’s sessions and exercises will be taking place in the heart of Manhattan.
