New fire-safety solutions for Limerick’s Georgian Quarter

first_img TAGSCommunityfire safetyLimerick City and CountyNews Limerick’s Georgian Quarter on O’Connell Avenue.Photo: Alan PlaceLIMERICK City and County Council has stepped up its efforts to enhance fire safety measures at historical buildings in the city’s Georgian Quarter.Up to 67 per cent of upper floors of buildings in the historical Georgian quarter are vacant. The Council is keen to unlock this potential source of accommodation for residents and invigorate the regenerated city centre.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up However, owners and landlords face significant hurdles in bringing their buildings up to fire safety standards while retaining historical character in order to return stock to the squeezed rental market.The local authority joined forces with Enterprise Ireland to launch a Small Business Innovation Research challenge to find innovative solutions to address fire safety issues in historic buildings.This resulted in Dublin-based startup Safecility being awarded a contract to evaluate the ways it can lower the cost of upgrading usable space in the city centre for residential useSafecility wirelessly turns a building’s emergency lighting into a connected device that makes it possible to automate legally required regulatory building fire safety testing.This has multiple benefits for the building owner – the existing fabric of the building is not impacted due to the wireless nature of the devices, while manual in person testing and resulting human error is eliminated. “Fire safety testing is legally incumbent on commercial and multi-unit building owners,” Safecility chief executive Cian O’Flaherty explained.“With our sensor, we can automate emergency lighting testing and improve compliance to make city buildings safer more affordably.“But that’s only the beginning. Our goal is to offer a full suite of building compliance services through our simple sensor which can be quickly installed at minimal cost to landlords and owners,” he added.

Wintershall Dea completes top hole drilling campaign on the Nova field

first_img Wintershall Dea completes top hole drilling campaign on the Nova field. (Credit Wintershall Dea) Wintershall Dea completed the top hole drilling campaign on the operated Nova field in the Norwegian North Sea ahead of schedule.The campaign, carried out by the Seadrill-operated West Mira rig, involved drilling some 3,400 metres of top holes for the six Nova production and water injection wells on two different templates.“We continuously try to improve our drilling operations to be safer, more efficient and more sustainable. Working together as ‘One Team’ with all involved, we were able to deliver the top hole campaign safely and two weeks ahead of schedule”, said Nils Petter Norheim, Wintershall Dea Norge Head of Drilling & Wells.Five of the top holes were drilled in one batch with repetitive operations. After each operation the team evaluated the performance, capturing best practices and lessons learned to optimise the equipment and drill the next section even more efficiently. This approach helped to continuously improve the drilling performance.High efficiency also translated into a more sustainable operation, with fewer days on the rig resulting in lower emissions. The reduction falls into a broader low-emission strategy, with the West Mira operating an energy-saving hybrid battery power plant, which increases the rig’s energy efficiency. The two supply vessels that support the rig are also equipped with hybrid batteries, which further reduces the environmental footprint of the campaign.“With all the top holes drilled, we have achieved another Nova milestone ahead of plan. We will continue drilling and the next step is to safely deliver the three production wells and three water injection wells before production start which is planned for 2022.” said André Hesse, Nova Project Director at Wintershall Dea.Nova drilling will last throughout most of 2021.

Frame a High-Angle Shot Like a Master Cinematographer

first_imgLearn the hows and whys of high-angle shots from master filmmakers like Hitchcock and the Coen Brothers!Top Image: Moonrise Kingdom via Focus FeaturesThe high-angle shot is a tried-and-true standard cinematography technique. This shot can be utilized in various framing modes, from close-up to long. Its visual language can have a few different connotations, but it usually conveys a sense of powerlessness and subjection.With all of this in mind, let’s learn how to utilize and frame a high-angle shot for film by looking at some of the best examples in cinematic history.Standard High-Angle ShotA standard high-angle shot will frame a character from around the waist up (while the camera looks down), which is the direct opposite of the low-angle shot. Just like the low-angle shot, the high-angle shot brings with it a specific visual language to cue the audience. Many times, this technique is used alongside the low-angle shot in a unique shot reverse, which enhances the perception of the character for the audience.The Wrong Man via Warner BrosIn the shot above (from Hitchcock’s The Wrong Man), the camera is positioned just above the characters. Through this high-angle shot, Hitchcock is conveying a feeling of tension and vicariousness. You’ll find that many standard cinematic shots utilize medium framing, but the high-angle shot primarily utilizes a much wider angle.Shawshank Redemption via Castle Rock EntertainmentA great example of this wider angle can be seen in this iconic shot from Frank Darabont’s The Shawshank Redemption. Darabont and cinematographer Roger Deakins convey a sense of relief and freedom for the character. By using a camera on a crane, they were able to dolly the shot up, revealing more and more of the landscape around Andy.Psycho via Paramount PicturesIt could be argued that no one used the high-angle shot more than Alfred Hitchcock. His use of this shot can be seen in several of his films, with one of the most famous examples being the Arbogast meets Mother scene from Psycho.In this scene, Hitchcock actually employs two types of high-angle shots. The first being the shot above, where Arbogast walks up the stairs. Here, Hitchcock uses a high-angle shot alongside a reverse tracking shot. Using this technique adds to the visual tension; it pulls the character of Arbogast in and expands the visibility of the surroundings.Wide High-Angle ShotThe second high-angle shot that Hitchcock utilized is the wide shot seen below. The use of wide framing is pretty standard with capturing a high angle. The visual language we got from the first high-angle shot was one of powerlessness. Then, in the shot below (where the camera rests directly above), the visual language clearly portrays Arbogast’s vulnerability — which leads to his death.Psycho via Paramount PicturesThe wide high-angle shot is also perfect for capturing reactions, as seen in the image below from The Avengers. Director Joss Whedon and cinematographer Seamus McGarvey used the high-angle shot to capture Thor and Captain America’s reaction to the Chitauri invaders.The Avengers via Marvel StudiosAn even more effective use of the wide high-angle shot is one that includes justified movement, as seen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. Director David Yates and cinematographer Eduardo Serra frame a high-angle shot but then track in with Voldemort as he approaches Harry. This gives the audience a sense of Voldemort’s power as he stands over Harry. This is then used to contrast the low-angle shot of Harry grabbing hold of Voldemort’s neck and pushing both himself and his arch nemesis over the edge.Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 via Warner Bros.Movement can do a lot for you, especially when you connect two types of shots using that movement. Master cinematographer Roger Deakins used a high-angle shot to perfection in O Brother, Where Art Thou? by the Coen Brothers. Deakins starts things off by framing George Clooney in a standard medium shot. Then, as his character prays and looks toward the heavens for intervention, the camera jibs upward into a high-angle shot that stops just wide enough to see the noose in the upper frame.Watch the clip below to see how utilizing a mixture of movement and high angle can generate effective visual language and enhance a scene’s emotional tone.Video via MovieclipsHigh-Angle Stack and POVSo far we’ve looked at standard medium-to-wide high-angle shots, some with movement and some without. Now let’s look at two other classic uses of the high angle. These versions are more about blocking and composition than anything else. First up, let’s look at a POV high-angle shot. Alfred Hitchcock used this type of shot in 1942’s Saboteur, but used it to perfection in 1958’s Vertigo.In the image below, we see Jimmy Stewart’s character, Scottie Ferguson, hanging from the side of a building as a hand reaches down. By placing the camera at essentially the same distance as the man trying to rescue Ferguson, Hitchcock is allowing the audience to see the danger the hero is in. Again, this is an effective use of visual language in order to enhance the narrative and to help the audience feel just how tense the situation really is.Vertigo via Paramount Pictures.In the following scene from Citizen Kane, Jim Gettys looks down upon his rival, Charles Foster Kane, during a political rally. Director Orson Welles and cinematographer Gregg Toland have stacked the action. It starts with Gettys looking over Charles Kane from a position of power. Kane can barely be seen talking on the distant stage.Citizen Kane via RKO Pictures.Like any of the standard cinematic shots, the high-angle shot should only be seen as a tool and not a crutch. It should be used as visual language to help enhance the narrative and never to take away from it. Using a high-angle shot is just one of many tools filmmakers can use to enhance the storytelling experience.What are your favorite examples of high-angle shots? We’d love to see them in the comments below.,Like any of the standard cinematic shots, the high-angle shot should only be seen as a tool and not a crutch.

How to Stylize Your Cinematography Like Wes Anderson

first_imgEvery great cinematographer has a signature style. You can develop yours by studying the experts, beginning with Wes Anderson.Cover image from Wes Anderson‘s American Express commercial.From Bottle Rocket to Isle of Dogs, Wes Anderson has consistently delighted cinephiles with his whimsical sense of humor and signature visual style. Whether you’re a fan or not, you’ve seen it both analyzed and parodied. However, it’s more than just tableaux and dead dogs. Anderson’s recognizable mise-en-scène is a combination of homaged compositions and coming-of-age motifs that requires a strong understanding of cinematography, color, and style.Let’s look at several ways to experiment with footage to see how Wes Anderson established his signature style.Flat CompositionsImage from The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou via Touchstone Pictures.One aspect of Wes Anderson’s cinematography (which is heavily tied to his go-to director of photography, Robert Yeoman) is the stark flatness of his compositions. As much as he possibly can, Wes creates his worlds by lining everything up directly in front of him. That is to say, he doesn’t use awkward angles. The camera can move, but if it does, it creates a new flat composition.The Basic Rules of CompositionObservations on Film Art: Shot-consciousness9 Composition Techniques That Will Make Your Images Eye-Catching on a Biological LevelVideo Tutorial: Composition, Framing and the 180° RuleCreate LinesImage via The Grand Budapest Hotel (Fox Searchlight).Wes Anderson then uses his flat compositions to create lines (which in turn creates symmetry — more on that below). For his style, it’s important to shoot with long lenses to make the lines as straight as possible. As a result, there are not many fish-eye angles in his films. For his most famous shots in films like The Royal Tenenbaums and The Grand Budapest Hotel, for example, Anderson shot on 40mm anamorphic as much as possible (Wolfcrow). Once these lines are steady, you can start placing them strategically in your composition.Static and Dynamic CompositionsCinematography Tips: Mastering Foreground, Middleground, and BackgroundHow to Craft a Cinematic Frame Within a FrameThe Most Common Framing Mistakes in Cinematography Find SymmetryIn this aspect, Wes Anderson is by no stretch the first director to make heavy use of symmetry in his films. His style, though, seems to be so popular that he seems to get the lion’s share of credit for it these days. (Stanley Kubrick would beg to differ.)To get good symmetry, you need to be aware of three things. One, mentioned above, is to avoid angles where the lines aren’t parallel. The second is to shoot long and tight shots without a fisheye curve. The third is your rule of thirds. Wes likes to center his subject perfectly in the middle of his shot but uses the thirds to divide up all the information on either side. Once you find symmetry, you can create stylistic imbalance. Here’s an example wherein he loads one half with a small army of short scouts, contrasted against just two stark characters on the other side, creating a contradiction.The Art of Perspective and Symmetry in CinematographyThe Perfect Symmetry of Wes Anderson’s MoviesFrom Kubrick to Anderson: One-Point PerspectiveThe geometric perfection of Wes Anderson filmsBright Color PalettesAfter he has composed his shots, Wes Anderson’s signature style really begins to flourish. In the commentary of Bottle Rocket, there are anecdotes about how Wes would spend hours poring over magazine spreads during pre-production to search for the perfect color palette for his film. From Bottle Rocket on, colors have become one of his hallmark features as he uses his signature dusty pastels to create timeless image qualities.Image of one of the Reservoir Geeks on location at the Bottle Rocket motel (Dallas Observer).You can work some on your own, but here’s an example of a free LUT created by SmallHD called “Moonrise” dropped onto a shot. LUTs are a great option and you can download several more for other film styles (and create your own) here.Wes Anderson’s Color PalettesWes Anderson Color Palettes (Tumblr)How to Color Grade Like — Moonrise Kingdom (Wes Anderson)Manipulating the Audience’s Emotions With ColorDramatic Use of Slow MotionAside from composition and colors, perhaps the most noteworthy technique of Wes Anderson’s filmmaking style is his deft use of slow motion. Wes Anderson doesn’t use this technique as often as, say, a Michael Bay film, but he does find a way to work it in to every one of his films — usually at the very end. He also plays back some shots beginning at normal speed (in the case of film, 24fps) and then shifting into slow motion, which is actually quite an intricate technique when shooting on film.If you’re shooting digital, you can always film a shot or scene at a higher FPS rate (frames per second) like 60fps or 12o+, then in post speed ramp the footage to a slow motion speed of your choice. When shooting on film, as Wes Anderson does, you have to use a process called “over cranking,” which you can read more about here.How Does Slow-Motion Video Work & How Can I Shoot It?Tips For Shooting the Best Slow-Motion Video5 Common Mistakes to Avoid When Shooting Slow MotionHow to Use Slow-Motion to Create Iconic MomentsOverhead TableauxImage from The Royal Tenenbaums via Touchstone Pictures.I’d argue that, in some small way, Wes Anderson is at least partly responsible for Instagram’s success. An influx of Wes Anderson-inspired overhead tableau shots have seemingly taken over the app. From a style perspective, laying out inanimate objects on a table is quite simple; the real challenge is in the spacing, lighting, and selection. For many of Wes Anderson’s overhead tableaux, even the table itself is an indication of time, place, and character. The set design is articulated to match the scene, and the spacing reveals a pristine attention to detail (a trait many of his characters share).From Above: The Overhead Shots of Wes AndersonHow Wes Anderson’s Cinematographer Shot These 9 Great ScenesHere’s What It Would Look Like If Wes Anderson Made Food VideosWes Anderson Filmmaking 101: Learn the Subtle Ways the Director Pulls You into His FilmsStop Motion AnimationAnother, not-so-easily replicable style of Wes Anderson’s is a penchant for stop motion animation. Yes, there are a few full-blown examples like Fantastic Mr. Fox and the most recent Isle of Dogs, but even some of his early films (most notably The Life Aquatic) make creative use of stop motion animation when showing wildlife and animals. As you can see in the video above, the process can be very long and painstaking, and it requires quite a bit of planning, creativity, and patience.How to Make a Professional Stop Motion Animation Video (Tutorial)FANTASTIC MR. FOX — In the puppet shop with Wes & Bill9 Essential Tips for DIY Stop-Motion AnimationMake a Stop Motion Animation — for BeginnersUsing the Right FontsImage of Wes Anderson’s favorite font Futura in use (via the Dallas Observer).On the other end of the spectrum, perhaps the most easily replicated aspect of Wes Anderson’s style is his font selections. While he has not used one single font throughout his entire filmography, Wes Anderson certainly has a few favorites that he often returns to. They range from the simple (yet stylized) Helvetica and Futura (as seen above), to the more decorative fonts like Didot and Tilda. His keen interest in typography creates opportunities in his films for his characters to write or type letters — often in very stylized iterations.The Font-spressionist: Wes Anderson RankedFutura, Contra and the Last Four Wes Anderson FilmsWes Anderson: the grand design behind The Grand Budapest HotelWes Anderson Fonts in UseFor more insights into Wes Anderson’s visual styles and how to create them yourself, check out some of the links below.A Beginner’s Guide to Wes Anderson MoviesHow to Direct Like Wes Anderson — Style and Trope BreakdownThe 7 Best Commercials Made By Famous DirectorsBehind the Scenes With Wes Anderson‘Bottle Rocket’ to ‘Budapest’: The Evolution of Wes Anderson’s Style15 Absolutely Necessary Ingredients For Making A Wes Anderson Filmlast_img read more

It was a shame. Of course, we cannot find the solution to score. We can take this goal but it is not a fair result.“A draw was the minimum and to lose this game for my team and players is harsh. Harsh because they had the right mentality despite tiredness in this busy period. They tried to give their best, to push until the end with a lot of chances.“It’s a shame. I’m sorry for my players and fans because it is not a fair result. We were unlucky, we conceded a fantastic goal and they scored with their chance at the end without the possibility to react.

Beyonce Helps Transform Lives Through Work

first_imgGoodwill Industries International is pleased to announce that Beyonce will lend her voice to help raise awareness about Goodwill’s mission of transforming lives through the power of work.Beyonce helps raise awareness about Goodwill’s mission of transforming lives through the power of workThe announcement comes just as Beyonce gets ready to kick off The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour in Serbia.“Goodwill helps people get back to work by providing education, job training and placement. I wanted to team up with an organization that puts people first and works every day to help them improve and re-establish their lives,” said Beyonce.Beyonce will encourage fans to support Goodwill by promoting donation drives at her North American concerts beginning on Friday, June 28, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Goodwill will host a mobile donation center onsite at 28 tour venues in 24 North American cities, collecting clothing, electronics and small household goods.

Global charity auction site Charitybuzz.com will auction special ticket packages for The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, with the revenue benefitting Goodwill.Every 38 seconds of every business day, a person served by Goodwill is placed in employment. Goodwill promotes independence and dignity for people who need support to provide for themselves and their families. When people donate to their local Goodwill, they play a vital role in fulfilling this mission. Financial donations and the revenue generated from the sale of used goods helps to sustain skills training, career placement services and job opportunities, and support services such as career counseling, access to free tax preparation and financial coaching. Members of the public can do their part to support Beyonce’s efforts by giving goods, giving financially, or giving their voice to increase awareness of Goodwill’s mission of transforming lives through the power of work.Beyonce will also support and advocate on behalf of other local charitable agencies involved in job creation and employment services during the overseas portion of her tour, to bring to light the importance of economic independence and an increased quality of life for those in need around the globe.“We face a jobs crisis in the U.S. and around the world that threatens the future and the potential of our families and communities. Through Beyonce’s platform, we will be able to increase knowledge of the positive impact Goodwill has on communities, the environment and the lives of the millions of people we serve each year through education and skills training, many of whom have been unemployed or underemployed for long periods of time,” said Jim Gibbons, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries International. “We cannot begin to express our sincere gratitude to Beyonce for her generous support of Goodwill and for showcasing Goodwill’s far-reaching programs and services that change lives each day.”last_img read more
