Randall Dark’s CES Experience: Wrap-Up

Long-time filmmaker/director Randall Dark, who is the proud new co-owner of Texas-based Bulltiger Productions, was at CES, the Consumer Electronics Show, in Vegas last week.

He was walking the show floor, taking meetings and striking up conversations with people on cab, bus and coffee lines. While there he was filing short blogs for postPerspective — sharing info on some pretty cool technology while also reporting on the atmosphere of the show.

Here are his thoughts from his third and last day of CES….

LG’s roll out of the new 4K OLED and ColorPrime TVs were impressive, but John Taylor also gave me a behind-the-scenes look at what LG is doing in the High Dynamic Range Technology arena… Continue reading

Randall Dark’s CES experience: Day Two

Long-time filmmaker/director Randall Dark, who is the proud new co-owner of Texas-based Bulltiger Productions, set out this week for the show of shows — CES, the Consumer Electronics Show.

He’s been walking the show floor, having meetings and striking up conversations with people on cab, bus and coffee lines. He’s also been checking out some pretty cool technology… and reporting on the atmosphere of CES.

Here is his glimpse of his second day at the show…

Today I walked over to the Embassy Suites to meet with Christopher D. Cox of Pivothead, who make wearable imaging products.  I have used his technology on a number of recent  documentaries and wanted to see what was new and exciting. He didn’t disappoint!

Curved TVs are everywhere. And as the Great Forrest Gump once said, “That’s all I have so say about that.” I saw this at the Haier booth.

One of many things CES does is honor the effort that goes into making and marketing products. The list of winners is too long to mention but congratulations to all of them.

CES booths have everything from 8K TVs to body-wear technology, which reminded me that I would be attending the formal Leaders of Technology dinner later that evening. I was hoping to wear this suit with a black tie.

I enjoyed listening to Nick Woodman, the founder and CEO of GoPro during the Leaders of Technology Dinner. Nick proves that the American Dream is alive and well. I also checked out their new toys at the GoPro booth. What I saw is just a glimpse of what’s to come.

I’ll check in again shortly with my thoughts on my third day of CES!

Lines. Really, really long lines
While the lines everywhere are irritating, CES is a great place to meet potential clients and learn Continue reading

Quick Chat: Randall Dark partners with Bulltiger for new media productions

By Randi Altman

Randall Dark has always been on my radar, almost since I started in this business all those years ago. To me he was the guy who was working in HD long before it turned into the high def we see on our televisions today. He truly was a pioneer of the format, but he’s also more than that. He’s a producer, a director, a cameraman and a company owner.

Recently, Randall Dark partnered with Bulltinger Productions’ CEO and founder, Stephen Brent, on a new film studio in North Austin.

Housing a 10,000-square-foot soundstage (also available for rent) with a 2,500-square-foot greenscreen, Bulltiger’s goal is creating compelling stories for all types of screens. Bulltiger Continue reading
