Good for DPA and Bucher. And thanks for the find Kelly.

But the old magazine editor in me says "WTF?" to Pro Video Coalition and their contributor for slapping their name on a rewrite of DPA's press release:

A few years ago, the UK Media Standards Trust had a website where you could enter the text of a press release and see where it had shown up on the web in a barely-changed form. For hard political news, that was and still is a big issue. The site was: churnalism.com.

Such a great name that shouldn't have faded away (since the practice sure hasn't): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Churnalism

The magazines I worked at, and this is back before the web took over everything, did run short one and two paragraph new product stories based (at least mostly) on press releases. But any feature or column required original work by the writer (and then the editors... ;-) )...ah, I'm going off topic. 

Would be cool to see a picture or read a bit more about this bit Valerian story: “To reduce noise, we put the microphones on the costumes with a semi rigid surface that we built with a 3D printer,” Bucher explains."

I received this photo from Stéphane Bucher (I built his cart) a few months ago. Not sure if this from when he was working on the film in question but possibly. 

I had the pleasure to meet him earlier this year.
