Helen Gammons takes on role as programme director of Music Industry Course at Henley Business School
Here at Planet Audio, we not only sell top quality products, we also have top quality knowledge in the music industry. We're very proud of our very own financial director, Helen Gammons, who has really outdone herself by taking on a secondary role as programme director of a new course at the world renowned Henley Business School. The course will center around the music industry, and with her expertise and experience in the field (not to mention being a published author on the subject), it didn't come as much of a surprise when she was asked to lead the programme.
The course will include specific sections on the music business and IP management. Exciting stuff!

Stop the presses! We are very proud to announce that the OWLE Bubo HD Video Kit has won the Editors Choice in the June 2011 issue of Macworld!
Macworld, who are renowned across the globe for their discerning reviews of anything Apple Mac related have given their stamp of approval for the OWLE Bubo HD Video kit which comes equipped with the Rotolight RL-48. They give high praise for both products saying "The combination of the OWLE Bubo iPhone holder and Rotolight instantly consigns your old shaky, badly-lit videos to history and replaces them with something even budding Spielbergs could love." Frankly, we couldn't have said it better ourselves!
They go on to say "The OWLE HD Video Kit is a great, relatively low-cost way to add a professional look to iPhone 4 videos and stills. You'll be able to achieve some striking results with a little experimentation and it beats having to buy a separate camcorder for occasional use."
The kit includes the OWLE Bubo for iPhone 4 plus 37mm wide angle / macro lens, as well as the Rotolight RL-48 Stealth, and six colour correcting filters. Check out the full five-star review in the June issue of Macworld or

The famous Korean director Park Chan-wook has directed and filmed a cinema quality movie using the OWLE Bubo and the Apple iPhone 4. Chan-wook is famous for his 2004 Cannes Film Festival win with film "Oldboy" and other bloody thrillers such as Lady Vengeance and Thirst.
The 30-minute cinema-quality, fantasty-horror movie titled Paranmanjang or "Night Fishing" centers around an encounter between a fisherman and a female shaman. Park filmed the movie with his younger brother Park Chan-kyong with a modest budget of $ 150m using multiple iPhones filming at once.
Every single shot was achieved using the handheld OWLE Bubo giving Chan-wook ultimate control and versatility with the smartphone video camera! He hopes to inspire other amateur directors and students with the film as the medium is so familiar to everyone.
"Night Fishing" opened in Korean cinemas January 2011.
