Major Inversions audiobook

Remember my debut novel from back in 2009? Ever wanted to cut out the eyeball middlemen and have the author’s voice streaming between your ears handsfree? Of all my fiction, Major Inversions made the most sense for an audiobook treatment because: • it’s written in first person, so the entire narrative is “in character” • […]

Gas Up the Stair Car

I was gonna do this whole post about evolving media distribution, and how I dig the new Netflix model because it allows me to shotgun series the way I prefer. But I already pretty much covered that with my House of Cards write-up over at ManArchy. And really, I’m such an Arrested Development fanboy that […]

Trite Tropes

Cinema is a language with its own conventions. The audience must be familiar with certain patterns, even unconsciously, for the transfer of visuals to register properly. Establishing a scene with a wide shot to get our bearings, not crossing the 180-degree axis, keeping the flow of action moving in a single screen direction – folks […]

MP3 Manipulation

I just downloaded a file/mp3 on a friend’s computer. it’s in iTunes and I can burn it. thing is, it’s a live recording and only one file and too long to fit on a single disc. is there a way to break it up into individual tracks and not have pauses between them when playing? […]

Reel Time

Time for a new gig. Like everybody else. Been thinking about going freelance (shooter mostly, maybe cutter). Never needed to make a demo reel before. Any ideas on what to include? Only your best work. Quality is far more important than length; it’s not a career retrospective. If there’s a type of project you’re not […]

RED With Envy

A former professor sent me an email recently about a movie shoot, and mentioned that they would be using a “Red Camera.” What is this new camera, and what are your thoughts on it? Is it a good product, is it expensive, and/or worth the cost? RED. The short answer is that it’s a brand […]

Serifims and Arch-angles

[…] the rule-of-thumb for fonts was to use sans-serif, lest the serifs disappear in the laces, so to speak. Now that we are entering a world of de-interlaced, HD video, does the rule still apply? Ah, tricky one – a “yes, but”/”no, if.” It wasn’t that we couldn‘t use serifs, it’s just that their details […]

Olly Olly Aux Send Free

. . . and you’ve wrote some things about ProTools on here before . . . I’m trying to get my [MIDI’d] Roland to come through in the session’s mixer so I dont’ have to run it out to my anologue mixer. And I’m going to need to record it soon anyway so that I […]

The DAM Tour

I’m researching archiving solutions for my company’s digital video library. We have all sorts of video media, from VHS to HD-DVD, BetaSP masters, Quicktime, Camtasia files, RealPlayer, Windows Media and everything in-between. How should we go about filing all of this media in the digital domain so we can access it, index it, search for […]

Those Annoying Clients

They pay the bills, but they’re also the leading cause of aneurysms and hate crimes. So how do you maintain your tact and composure in the face of their perpetual ignorance? A guy I used to work for was fond of saying, “The customer’s not always right, but the customer’s always the customer.” He went […]
