Tim Wilson is the Associate Publisher of Creative COW Magazine and the Associate Director of the Creative Cow community website. Tim's reputation as one of the foremost leaders in the professional video market traces back to his years as a documentary filmmaker whose work has aired on major cable networks and other outlets, to his years with Ron & Kathlyn where Tim built such a reputation that he became the Marketing Director and Product Manager of RED while at Boris FX, then onto his years with AVID as their Senior Product Marketing Director for products like Avid Xpress and Media Composer. In a move that brought him full circle back to working with Ron & Kathlyn, Tim brings his wide knowledge and experience to Creative Cow readers and members.

"We couldn't be happier to be working with Tim," says Creative COW founder and Director, Kathlyn Lindeboom. "Tim is a person that we have such respect and admiration for. We were so proud to see him grow in this industry into such an incredible career and we are even happier to see him want to rejoin our team and help take the site and the Creative COW Magazine to the next level."

You can find Tim Wilson hosting in Creative COW's Letters to the COW Team, NAB Expo, COW: The Community Speaks, COW - Now Playing..., NEWS: Product News Releases, Creative COW podcasts, Podcasting, Apple iPad, Apple iPhone, Apple - Windows on Mac, Stereoscopic 3D, Social Media, and Crowdfunding Forums.

The film Stalingrad is an epic look at the battle that turned the tide of World War II, and already the highest-grossing film in Russian history.

Before coming to Creative COW, before his lives in product marketing and product management at Avid and Boris FX, Creative COW Editor-in-Chief Tim Wilson ran a video production company. In one especially memorable adventure, he found himself quite literally up to his armpits in alligators. He had no idea that this was going to happen when the day began.

TV's All-time Greatest Openings Friday Night ABC 1971-72 TV's All-time Greatest Openings Friday Night ABC 1971-72

Talking about great movie title sequences is pretty common, but talking about great TV opening sequences typically begins and ends with the theme song. Creative COW's Tim Wilson takes a highly personal trip through a single night that offered five great theme songs in five great opening sequences, in five shows that have largely stood the test of time -- and certainly had a profound impact on him: ABC's Friday night lineup in 1971-72, kicking off with The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family.

Whenever somebody equates "shallow depth of field" and "cinematic look," it's good to remember that the opposite is sometimes true. Gregg Toland, ASC was the first master of extreme depth of field, and movies like Citizen Kane and The Grapes of Wrath forever changed what it is possible for humans to do with cameras. Here's a look at what that means for YOUR shooting.
