Despite the fact that I am taking a little hiatus/Freelance paternity Leave from Post Production work, as I look back at the few projects that I worked on in the past year, it was an eventfull one. I worked on more French speaking projects and more Big Brand/Mega Corporation work than ever and I saw a webisode project flourish.

Anybody can edit. Yes, anybody can do it. It's not particularly hard to get your hands on the tools to stitch two images together these days (thanks Steve Jobs) and we have all grown up with TV, movies and now streaming media.

I have blogged about shortcut keys in the past and I am of the camp that customization is more productive than using default keyboard layout, if you primeraly mouser this is probably not something that you need to read since your riding a horse and carriage in a Nascar race. When I was recently on the FCPXGRILL I got lots of great feedback but the squeaky comment creates the most thought provoking. The honorable Chairman Meow had a reaction to my "normal" that made me re-examine a cho...

The one, I want to fo...

The dirty little secret about Final Cut Pro X are the revisions. I didn't jump on board on FCPX-D-day when many average editors and all the machine operators cried about there precious tools death. I laughed, I blogged and like in any situation I didn't panic. Panic is your enemy, in post especially. I took it easy, tried it and said to myself "wow this is crap". Like Robert Deniro in Wag the Dog said so eliquently, "They just didn't think it through". I put it on the shelf and prep...

Recently, one of my old time clients moved out there office building in downtown Toronto and it got me thinking about location, location, location of work and do you need to have an official office space. And, completely unrelated, recently lnkedin sent me an and anniversary notification, 15 years of Gorilla productioning full time, creating some pretty compelling content that is most of the time on the creative, interesting and challenging.

All B Camera operators should be editors and vice versa. Everybody focuses on the main camera aka A camera. Director, script supervisor, producers, the list is longer but nobody is too concerned with the roaming maverick.
