It began, as many things do with an idea -- I was in NYC for #TM13, along with all our Mobile Nations site editors, Kevin Michaluk, Phil Nickinson, and Daniel Rubino, Rene Ritchie, and Georgia, and we had Martin Reisch and his RED Scarlet 4K camera. So, we figured "why not shoot the Monday Brief in 4K!". And therein began the longest Odyssey in Monday Brief history.
The shooting itself went pretty well, with Georgia and myself kicking things off, and Kevin doing his best to finish the show with a bang. Then things started getting complicated. Turns out it takes a long, long, long time edit and render 4K video, and a really long time to upload it. Even longer when things go weird along the way.  In any case, we got it all sorted now and as such we bring you, the Monday Brief ... on a Wednesday.

    This is a great Monday (Wednesday) Brief guys. Love seeing everyone together. Looking forward to Mobile Nations [Too Much] 2013

    Whose bright idea was it to shoot video facing the bright window???? That was horrible.

    No kidding. Get a reflector for the light from the adjacent window, at least. I am an amateur and even I know basics like that.

    ...ill take a 4K clip of the first 30 seconds

    joebob2000 says:

    It should be marked with NSFW too, if your boss walks in and you are watching a video of two girls, on a couch, in the dark, there WILL be assumptions...

    That 4K camera is no joke. That was the clearest real feel depth video I have ever seen. You and Georgia made me wish for more Girls Gone Gadget.

    I used the Youtube app on my Nexus 10 with no problem.

    For those of you being smartasss', this type of photography is known as contre-jour, yes like the game. Which means "against daylight", you might want to Google that before lip flapping.
