The Great Smoke 2013 Summer Challenge of 2012 This is my adventure into Smoke 2013 (aka Smoke on a Mac 2013). I have no experience with any Autodesk programs and am only slightly familiar with FCP 6, 7 and Avid Media Composer 3 – 6. While I have a production company, my personal editing skill...

On July 25th, I attended the ‘Masters of Sound’ presented by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California.

On March 3rd, 2018, I attended my 10th ACE Invisible Art Visible Artist event. Each year the line to get in seems longer and longer. I think has a lot to do with the fact that ACE is steadfast in their efforts to help our craft in being recognized in the world of film. IAVA [...]

In 2009, I went to my first IAVA event. It’s a panel of editors who have been nominated for that year’s Academy Award or Oscar, put on by A.C.E. (American Cinema Editors).

How bad can criticism affect you? It really depends on a lot of factors. I’m still affected by something someone said to me seven years ago. I really feel that I haven’t gotten over it and in fact, I’m currently trying to work through it. One of my first ever paid video gigs was a [...]

Sometimes in great storylines the protagonist must die. Such was the fate of #IFIE. After over seven years, with ebb and flow passion towards it in the past and waning interest in it in the present, I had to “kill my baby”. Or maybe it’s better to say, let it go out into the world [...]

In the summer of 2008, I felt alone as a filmmaker, living 40 miles outside the mecca that is Hollywood. It was an interesting time. The digital revolution was beginning and I had begun in that direction with the purchase of an HVX200, after learning all about it’s virtues from History and Discovery Channel veteran, [...]

An interesting night at LACPUG, last night. First a stump the gurus Randy Ubillos, Larry Jordan, Kylee Wall and Monica Daniels Two Chicagoans presented last night, as the Blackhawks took game 6 of the NHL Western Conference to tie the series 3 – 3, forcing game 7 to be played in Anaheim.

In 2012, the first Independent Filmmakers of the Inland Empire, NAB [National Association of Broadcasters], KISS [by Monster Mini Golf] Mini Golf Tournament (INKMINIGT) was born. What is it and why do I throw this party? It is indoor glow-in-the dark mini-golf in a KISS (the band) theme. And, yes, that is all that it [...]

Well folks, April is around the corner and that means the annual migration of “broadercasters*” to Las Vegas for the NAB Show. Since 2009, I have been attending NAB and as I’ve mentioned over and over again, I think I will always try to find a way to go. In 2012, I threw the first [...]
