H onesty is the best policy, or at least that’s what my mum used to tell me. So, cards on the table, before we started working on this issue, I had no idea what the metaverse was. It was a construct that my ageing brain struggled to conceive, let alone grasp what opportunities it presents. Ditto cryptocurrencies. If you’re in the same boat, may I suggest that you head to this month’s round table feature (page 51) in which key industry figures explain its potential. For those seeking more traditional Definition fare, this issue also has much to offer. We’ve got the detail on the Alexa 35, Arri’s first camera launch in three years, plus a fascinating insight into the Netflix mega-franchise that is Stranger Things . Not only did DOP Caleb Heymann have to deal with the pressure of working on one of the world’s biggest shows... he had the added spice of shooting as productions emerged from Covid-enforced lockdowns. I mentioned last month that I’m keen to get feedback on the magazine. You can always get in touch on the email below, but I’ll also be at Euro Cine Expo in early July, so feel free to tap me on the shoulder. Just don’t ask for an explanation of bitcoin.
