“Songs I Wrote in the ’80s” music video

This one takes my previous video, “Antidote,” to the next level: a logical progression from studio to stage. Enjoy! Special thanks to Pat Redd and School of Rock Overland Park. Trivia: • The song itself was inspired by Jason Webley (troubadour accordionist extraordinaire). Late into one of his shows, when taking audience requests, someone shouted […]

Finding the Light album released!

The day has come! Finding the Light is my first commercially released album. It was a total DIY production crafted over the course of nine months, with me writing, performing, and mixing every track in my home studio, whose songs form a loose theme: the fall and rise of a musician. A music video at […]

“Antidote” music video

With my Finding the Light album release this week, I figured I should preview a full track. And in the same spirit as the recording process, why not keep the video DIY, too? Trivia: • Self-shot with a single GoPro on a gooseneck clamp in my Womb With a View studio. • This was the […]

Aborted Capture (FCP)

Every time I start a batch capture, Final Cut cues the tape, prerolls, then aborts right at the inpoint with an error. I already checkd for timecode breaks. No tape dropouts, either. WTF? Two things. If this is a digital capture (some flavor of DV, not “digitizing” an analog source), make sure your current capture […]

Mingling Frame Rates (FCP)

A production house [gave me a tape] that is interlaced video, and I need to cut it into my project, but our shooter did everything in 24p, which we want to keep. Politics as they are, I’m forced to use some of this other footage, but don’t know how to combine the two technically. Think […]

Limp Fades (FCP)

Any time I have more than one layer stacked up on my [Final Cut Pro] timeline and I want to fade them out equally (like to black or to dissolve to another clip), I get this weak doubling see-thru effect. Surely this has to be doable. It is. The reason this happens is because all […]

Never Sur-Render (FCP)

[In Final Cut Pro], every time I drop a clip into the timeline, it says I have to render the thing, but I know my project is set up for DV50, just like the camera settings. Aaargh! I’m going to hurt someone soon. Should I just render everything and move on? This is a bug […]
