Showreel magazine to launch US version at NAB - Free copy for DVi members

We are launching a US edition of Showreel magazine in the US at NAB this year and would like to offer US based DV Info members a free first issue.

We promise the US edition of Showreel will retain the same quality and independence as the UK version. Anyhow this pasty Brit is looking for an excuse to spend more time in the sun:)

If you would like to receive a copy please email denise@showreel.org and Ill send you a subscription form (all details are confidential - yet necessary for audit and stats purposes). Deadline: 10 April 2006

All the best

Existing subscribers

Hello Joe

I intend to notify all US subscribers and give them the option of switching to US version. As they have paid the higher rate for international subscription I can offer either a refund or offer to extend their subscription for another year. What would you like to do?

The first issue will contain some cross-over content from the UK issue so might wish to swap over from the second issue.

Thanks for your support, I do hope you enjoy the read.

Denise

If there is a difference in content between the two, I want to maintain my UK subsription and add the US one. If not...then the extended option sounds great.

I learned more about film financing from the current issue than I ever though possible. Excellent.

One thing I would like to mention. Showreel is a class outfit. After I subcribed last month, I recieved the current issue (which had already mass shipped) in a hand addressed envelope. I can't think of a single American publisher who does that.

Blush!

Thanks Joe, but people will begin to talk;)

As you are probably aware small privately owned companies tend to have more than just a financial investment in what they do - which is probably why we are still sitting at our desks after a 13 hour shift (and no-one has even mentioned going to the pub yet). Anyhow the US issue is coming along nicely and we can all breathe a sigh a relief when it goes of for print on Tuesday.

I'll keep you on the list for both for the time being.

Take care

Denise

Mine's a pint of good old fashioned room temperature draft ale

Cool, and unfortunately Guiness has started selling their draft in 14.5 ounce cans over here instead of a proper pint, hence my signature. Room temperature? ummmmmm.

Heck, when I was in England (SouthHampton) a few years ago Budweiser was the #1 imported beer. I concluded that the apacolypse was upon us.

I did get introduced to Red Speckled Hen at a 700 year old pub, an experience I'll never forget (a good one). Had to take a cab back to the ship.

Room-temperature beer in Las Vegas

Speckled Hen is a quality beer (in our extensive testing it pipped strong contenders Greene King's Abbot and Marston's Pedigree and featured only slightly below Wadworth 6X admittedly a session beer, but rich and fruity nonetheless). If anyone can tell me where there's a place in Las Vegas that sells beer at the correct temperature (that of a good red wine rather than tongue-sticking-to-lamppost cold), it would make NAB considerably more palatable.

I'm not a big fan of lager, but I do like American dark beer (although I generally have to ask the people behind the bar to bing it in the microwave for 30 seconds).

In vegas room temperature would be about 90 degress in the shade. You might want to ask for cool, not cold beer. Room temp in Merry Old England is lower than Vegas, much lower. And I believe they tap into a barrel thats underground to keep it cool? Oh and most importantly...

let them know you tip. People from England regularily get ignored by wait staff because of their non tipping reputation. Wait staff are paid below minimum wage over here (with the assumption they make it up in tips), so they depend on your generosity. Some places will tac on 15% to the bill if they think you're a cheapskate. Legally you don't have to pay that, but....
Trust me it will make your stay much more pleasant. Vegas is all about money baby!!!!

All about the money...

I a bit of NAB veteran, this'll be my 11th. Good and not so good experiences. For instance I met my future husband and business partner at the Hard Rock Cafe 7 years ago - he proposed on bended knee in the casino of the Rio 5 years later.

However, 2 years ago I had my purse stolen on the first day of the show including our passports, credit cards, everything important. When I asked at the reception of the 'International' hotel I was staying at for the contact number for Visa International they said they did not keep such information. Fortunately I had paid for my room in advance as by the time I had reached it they had disconnected all my services (telephone, room service, etc). That was just the beginning of a pretty frustrating week culminating in an overnight trip on a Greyhound to the British Consulate in LA.

My best moment about tipping was when I shared a taxi from the airport with another Brit, The taxi driver thought we were Australian and spent the entire journey complaining about how mean and rude the British were. I have to say by the end of the journey he was proved right.

So in other words.....you didn't tip him? :D

Tipping

Yeah, right. Unlike many who visit LV, I'm not into paying for being insulted and generally abused:)
