Ryan Carter It talks and sees, but is not human. It's a camera. For about $2,000 and some 35mm film, police bought a camera they hope will make a dent in everything from vandalism to illegal dumping and trespassing. The item is not the everyday pricey camera. It's equipped with a motion detector and an audio feature, which allows police to record a voice into the machine. "Please leave the area," is one possibility for the camera's warning, Police Sgt. John Dilibert said.

Laura Sturza What do rows of brightly colored tape, audio and video cables, cotton diapers, windshield sealant and sandbags have in common? All are used by cinematographers, camera assistants and grips -- the people who set up camera and lighting equipment. And all are sold by Burbank's Filmtools, which moved to its 5,000 square-foot shop at 3100 Magnolia Blvd. earlier this year, having outgrown its 1,200 square-foot digs on Olive Avenue, where they opened in 2000.

Laura Sturza Camera slates that mark the start of a movie or TV shot are being given a fresh take by Burbank resident Kevin Ivey, whose company makes versions of the items using an innovative digital method to transfer logos to plexiglass. The slates, which include a clapper at the top, are typically hit by the second camera assistant after the assistant director calls "roll sound," Ivey said. Because sound and image are taped and filmed separately, the clapping sound signals to editors how to sync the two in post production.

Camera tricks add intrigue Carolyn Howard-Johnson of Glendale is the author of the just-released novel, "This is the Place." This is an ode to a new director. John Moore puts his experience with commercials to use in his first movie, "Behind Enemy Lines." He cuts and swoops and angles to track a downed pilot played by Owen Wilson. His camera sees Wilson sitting forlornly on a mountain top in Yugoslavia like a Jeep was once isolated on a plateau in Utah for a TV ad. Wilson's face is like a squashed puffed pastry, but Moore focuses on its expressive beauty.

In “Metallica Through the Never,” which debuted last week in Burbank and opened wider in cinemas this weekend, the multi-platinum heavy-metal band has delivered less a traditional concert film than a music-driven feature. “We wanted to give an experience that was different,” said Lars Ulrich, the band's enigmatic drummer, who cofounded the band in Los Angeles with guitarist James Hetfield in 1981. “So many concert movies are the same, so we thought if we weave a dramatic arc and different genres into the film, it would make for a more interesting movie.” Filmed for 3D and IMAX, the movie is not only a vivid greatest hits package performed by the band on an elaborate concert stage especially designed for the film, but interweaves a tale set in a post-apocalyptic nightmare, as an overly dedicated young roadie, Trip (played by Dane DeHaan)

The latest generation of 3-D technology started out as a gimmicky gamble that others didn?t believe in, but has proven to be the key for some in the entertainment industry as others struggle to battle a dearth of local spending from major motion picture and television studios. Pace Technologies and 3ality Digital, both based in Burbank, have benefited as industry giants look to make their products more attractive to penny-pinching consumers during the recession. The companies develop camera rigs and digital production systems that have been used in almost every recent live-action 3-D film and television production.
