      This is very interesting…given my current situation.  Production company in Virginia…production happening in Virginia.  Post being a mixture of Virginia and Los Angeles.  Really curious how this would handle long form shows.

      EXPORTING LOW RES QT FROM AVID...FAST.

      August 31, 2012, 7:43 am
      One thing I find myself doing very often while editing remotely…me in L.A., the production company in Virginia…is exporting Quicktime files of my project for my producers at "home base" to watch.  I will do this on an Act by Act basis…when I finish an act, I'll export it, upload to their FTP. Now, like most...

      AVID/AMA BEST PRACTICES - LINKAGE!

      August 28, 2012, 10:33 pm
      OK, so I've been bad about blogging lately. I blame work.  Long hours are bad for bloggers. ANYWAY…so that you all don't go into withdrawl, I'll link to a great post by my friend Jon Chappell over at digitalrebellion.com.  His post on Avid AMA best practices is one that anyone who uses and Avid must read...

      I'm going to avoid the tech in this post, and try to concentrate on the creative. Because to tell the truth, there isn't a lot of tech involved, just editing.  Yes, can say things like the trim tool in Avid make cutting this show very easy, as the trim tool, in my opinion, is one...

      July 20, 2012, 7:52 am
      OK, this has been an odd couple weeks, as I took half a week off to vacation up at Lake Arrowhead, and then I had a tight tight deadline to get this show done.  But I'll keep this short and sweet too.  I'll mention the obstacles I faced, and how I solved them. OBSTACLE #1: The [...]

      REVIEW: RAIDAGE GAGE

      July 20, 2012, 7:52 am
      OK, time for another review for a hard drive enclosure: the RAIDAGE GAGE104U40SL-SAUF 1U 4 Bay RAID Enclosure from iStarUSA. This one is cool...it stands out. That's why, when the makers asked me to review the unit by commenting on a previous post, I leapt at the chance. Well, after first starting to compose...

      AMERICAN HAUNTING - WEEK 2

      July 2, 2012, 8:34 am
      Week 2 was a full week. A LONG full week. There is a lot of footage to go through, a lot of script pages to go through so my days are ending up being 12-14 hours long. It's a good thing I enjoy editing otherwise that'd be a bit much. But I love what I do...

      HAUNTING MY LAPTOP

      June 27, 2012, 9:52 am
      Yesterday I took a stab at editing the show using my laptop. The laptop in question is the new 2012 MacBook Pro 2.3Ghz i7, 8GB of RAM, matte screen. I took the external drive with the episode and connected it via Firewire 800 (glad I got the non-retina I need that connector). I ordered a Thunderbolt to...
