I wrote this and then re-read it and I realize it’s somewhat disjointed. I blame that on the fact this movie completely scrambled my brain apart. I went to see A Single Man on Friday night at our local indie theater, the only place it’s playing in the city. This movie really wasn’t on my… Continue reading A Single Man
I’ve learned a lot about the various formats, compressions, codecs, etc. that exist in the video world since graduation. I dedicate my “billable downtime” rendering or transcoding to learning more and reading up on white papers and forums. I’ve come to realize that my university education completely glossed over huge pieces of the post production… Continue reading Something that perturbs me..
I knew today would be filled with a lot of annoying complainers. This is THE mythical tablet. It’s been a legend for years and years. Nothing can live up to that kind of hype. But I think the iPad has lived up to my expectations completely. I wasn’t shocked by any of the functionality because… Continue reading Why yes, I would like an iPad.
I’m sure anyone not living under a rock knows all about the NBC drama with Leno and Conan. If not, I’m not getting into the details of it, so you should Google it and come back later. The whole situation was so depressing for me. I hadn’t watched much late night television at all in… Continue reading Cynicism, Success, & Video Production
Since I completed some Apple Pro Certifications last spring, I’ve had several people inquiring about the certifications and my experience with them. When I was trying to decide if it was something I wanted to do, I couldn’t find a whole lot of good first hand information on the Internet. In general, I found a… Continue reading Apple Pro Certifications
Last night Katie and I were talking about some ideas I had, and suddenly we came up with the idea of a film-grimage. We’re still kind of debating the name of it but I personally happen to like the term. Anyway, what is a film-grimage? As you may of guessed, it’s adapted from the term… Continue reading A film-grimage.
I follow @editblog on twitter and saw he made a list of professional resolutions for 2010. Although I think New Year’s resolutions are dumb, it somewhat inspired me to come up with a list of things to work on professionally in the coming year. Who cares if it happens to be at the same time… Continue reading Professional Resolutions
I completely forgot I never blogged about Postapalooza. I am lucky to have an awesome employer who decided to send me there. I had never been to a conference of any kind before, so this was an entirely new experience for me. On a Sunday afternoon in October, I drove from Indy to southern Indiana… Continue reading Postapalooza 2009
2009 has been the year of user-generated news. Twitter has finally caught on (after 3 years of using it and waiting for others to pick it up, I’m happy to see this). If I’m being totally honest, the last few major news stories that occurred, I found out about via Twitter. I think that’s pretty… Continue reading User-generated content and news
I got a chance to see James Cameron’s Avatar on Friday night in 3D. It was absolutely amazing. After letting it settle for a couple of days and reading other reactions, I have a few thoughts. The technology used in this film changes everything. It sets a new standard for motion capture, environment creation, and… Continue reading Avatar…well…this changes everything.
