Most of my articles this week were suggested by readers. But I want to start by talking about a question from
, which was: "I am interested in this whole
, Rec. 2020 stuff. But I do not see a thorough overview including the "if" and "if not" and "better do this than that if." Did I overlook something like this from your site?"
This is a great question and while I cover it in my latest
FCP X 10.4 video training
, I haven't written an article about this in a while. The technology is changing very quickly and I need to update my articles. But, with the annual NAB Show coming up in three weeks, I know there will be significant announcements surrounding HDR at the show, so it makes sense to wait a few more weeks before addressing this. Expect more soon - first on our
- then in updated articles after the show.
Thinking of our podcasts, we have now booked all but two guests for our upcoming

The Buzz had a great show this week. We interviewed
three Oscar-nominated audio mixers
about their work on this year's biggest movies, plus looking at new audio network standards being developed by AES, learn about custom-built, high-performance computer hardware and discover better ways to plan a production. It was a fun show and our guests were great. Take a listen
When it comes to articles, I have five for you this week: two on
, two on
and recent thoughts on why communication is so hard. A few days ago, I received a press release that was
a train-wreck of missed communication
and provides an object lesson to all of us trying to capture the attention of an audience. It's my
this week and I encourage you to read it. I'm interested in your comments.
Oh! Our "Back to Basics Month" continues this week with an introduction to the basics of
