There are already two items up today at “Behind the Screen,” a new hollywoodreporter.com blog being curated by contributing editor Caroyln Giardina. The first post explains how a collective of filmmakers documented the delivery of space shuttle Endeavor to downtown’s California Science Center and the second teases Jon Landau‘s upcoming Tech Summit keynote.
From today’s announcement:
“Behind the Screen” is dedicated to covering the talent and technology behind the magic of Hollywood – from key players to the disruptive technologies behind films, TV and mobile content. The blog will hone in on how changing technology impacts the way movies and TV shows are produced and edited by covering advances in visual effects, sound, editing and cinematography, digital cinema and animation technologies.
Giardina’s decade-plus time on this beat has also included coverage for Shoot and Film and Video. She comes to the blog at a time when THR just recently also received a great gift from people in front of TV, computer and mobile screens: its best single-day of Web traffic yet (1.8 million+ unique visitors).
