Webinars return this week with one of my favorites: "Ask Larry Anything." Partly I like these because I don't have to prepare anything - but, even more, because I enjoy learning the questions you have which helps me plan what to write and present in the future.

However, to give me time to figure out the answers, please send me your questions via email. You are welcome to ask anything you want during the presentation, but I always appreciate the time to reflect on the best answer.

Remember, registration is always free to my live webinars - click here to sign up.

I have three articles for you this week - Improve Audio Levels Automatically showcases techniques I use in almost every project. The FCP X Power Tips is one you'll like - I only discovered these recently and they are already making my editing faster. And, like all of us, I'm struggling to keep all my digital records intact. So I have an update on archiving, thanks to a very useful infographic from Archiware.

Another archiving issue that I'm struggling with is figuring out what data I actually need to keep. Are 12-year-old emails still valuable?  Hmm... there's an article there somewhere. I'll add that to my list.

The Digital Production Buzz had a fascinating show for Thanksgiving. We took several of our favorite interviews over the last few months and put them all in one spot - last Thursday's show.  All that, plus a DoddleNEWS Update from James DeRuvo. This was a fun show to produce - I hope you have time to listen to it.

Well, Thanksgiving weekend is over and I need to get back to work. Be sure to send in questions for the webinar and I look forward to chatting with you then. In the meantime, edit well!
