Jan. 7, 2019

The holidays are over and it's the start of a new year. Yay!

So, to celebrate, I got sick.  Sigh...  All my plans to get a jump on the new year and begin the projects I'd been looking forward to for a while were suddenly put on hold. This week, instead, I'm running some articles you may have missed during the holidays.

I had a lot of positive comments about our Craft of Editing webinar series. If you are interested in the entire series, its available here in our store and Video Training Library.

The Craft of Editing was based on 2ReelGuys.com. This is a FREE 32-episode web series created by Norman Hollyn and myself. We called it "Film School in a Box." Everything you need to know about creating a film that doesn't involve technology. The original series was sponsored by Avid, but it is application agnostic. Norman and I had great fun putting this together and I encourage you to watch. Each episode runs 8-10 minutes.  You can find it here.

Webinars are taking the week off to give me more time to recover.

Digital Production Buzz had a great group of futurists on last week looking back at 2018 and projecting where we are headed for 2019. The show featured interviews with Michael Kammes, Philip Hodgetts, Larry O'Connor, Maxim Jago, Emery Wells, Paul Babb and James DeRuvo. I found their comments to be very insightful. Listen to the show here.

I wish you great success in the new year and look forward to visiting with you again next week. In the meantime, edit well.
