While in France this May I had an experience that truly thrilled me: I visited the Institut Lumière in the Monplaisir district of Lyon.

One of the great parts of blogging is hearing from readers. When the reader has created a video like Matt Orfalea who sent a bouncy, spot-on comic short, “Rough Cut” the joy is tripled.

Are you a beginning editor who desperately want some practice cutting footage before striking out in the world? A film student or a college looking for footage beyond the tired all scenes (such as the scene from Gunsmoke which I and others taught over the decades)?

Confession: I’ve watched “Glee” since its first episode in May 2009. I like the message of the show – acceptance – seeing GBLT characters as well as hetero-and metrosexual characters, and its often non-formulaic plots, issues, and nuances not to mention its musical numbers. As a member of Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (the […]

Introduction My caveat for PictureYourBook’s second book trailer was that my partner Jay and I create a trailer with free music (thank you YouTube) and no VO. My reason? I wanted to show authors how a lower budget video can still be a highly effective, engaging trailer. Here’s Jay’s experience meeting that and other challenges […]
