Sorry, I've really let this blog, and my podcast, fall to the wayside. I've fallen behind on stuff I’ve wanted to write and podcast about. If you would like to know why, here’ a great article from Kylee Wall on the Creative Cow about being a post production dad...

Normally when I work on a documentary…well, any sort of project be it a documentary, reality show, competition show…and especially narrative work…I am handed a script. And I build a show based on this script. If I am not handed a script, I am given what is called a "string out" of the footage...

OK, I'm not all about Avid now. I’m giving Adobe Premiere Pro some love too. With Apple no longer making a tool I can use, I'm exploring the other two main options for NLEs and seeing what they are capable of. Seeing how they might fit into my workflow needs. Now, [...]

OK, here's a little follow up to my Media Composer 6 review. In that review I mentioned that you could label your clips via a small palette of colors. Well, there is actually a way to open up that choice of colors…to get to the full color palette including the Color Wheel and Crayon options...

I'm going to start out by saying that I was one of the beta testers of this version of Media Composer. One of a couple hundred actual end-users of the software. Editors from all walks of professional life who used the beta on some of our actual projects. Because it was a [...]
