Last year, Imagineer Systems was recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences with a Scientific and Technical Award for mocha and its ground breaking Planar tracking technology.  Coremelt, creator of the Lock & Load (my favorite) and SliceX plugins, has recently released TrackX using mocha… within FCPX.

Gone are the days of tedious rotoscoping — the task of painstakingly tracking or removing an object from/onto a video one single frame at a time.  FCPX editors can now effortlessly track text or graphics to follow background movement for cool title effects, or track and insert a new layer for screen replacements, like replacing a sign on the side of a moving bus or the screen of a computer.  Coremelt’s newly released TrackX uses the same powerful mocha tracking and interpolation engine by Imagineer Systems previously found as a plug-in for Adobe’s…

Do you need business partners?

•Do I need partners?
One rule that I’ve used is that if someone is critical to helping me achieve the goals that I have set for the company, offer them some form of equity. If not, make them an employee (possibly a highly paid employee), if justified.

Make sure you and your partner have the same goals. It is very important.

•Who’s going to do what?

While the partners will most likely wear multiple hats at the start, there should be a delineation of responsibilities with assigned roles that play to each individual’s strengths.

•How will we resolve conflicts?

Air them out.

I think that having agreements in writing lets everyone involved have a clear understanding of what is being proposed. Put signatures down and be willing to revisit the operating agreement as required.

•How will we dissolve the partnership?

Hope that it never gets to this point, but be prepared just in case.
While no one goes into a partnership with the intent of ending it prematurely, life events or a change in strategy may mean one or more partners want out.

Read more here in detail if you are seriously thinking about going into business. For the industry maybe you just want to contract people to assist with your production or work with a production team. This seems easier to me this way you deal with you and the main few partners you work with. Keep in mind its your business so be cautious and take your time with any deal or contract you commit to.
