Sept. 25, 2017

Apple is scheduled to release the latest version of the macOS - High Sierra - today, Sept. 25. Before they do, you need to read my " Cautions About Upgrading to High Sierra." It has information you need to consider before you upgrade.

This week, I'm presenting one of my favorite business-related webinars: How to Find, Get and Keep a Job or a Client." The last time I presented this was two years ago and, while much is still the same, much has also changed. So, I added a bunch of new material. If you are looking for tips on how to improve your client relations, or know someone who is looking for work, this is the session. When I teach this at USC, my students tell me that it changed their life. Registration is FREE - sign up here. (There is only one session, at 9 AM this Wednesday.)

Last week, I interviewed the CEO of, David Ciccarelli. Voices is the largest online marketplace for producers and audio voice artists. I found our conversation fascinating and encourage you to read it.

As well, I have articles on cool animation techniques in Motion, cautions about using Audio Enhancements in Final Cut Pro X, and two articles looking back at news and announcements from IBC. All my articles are below.

OH! And thinking of IBC, the Digital Production Buzz last week looked at the biggest announcements from our biggest vendors - Adobe, AJA Video, Blackmagic Design, and Dell EMC - along with news reports from both Terry Hope and James DeRuvo. If you want to know what's happening today, this is a great show to bring you up-to-date. Listen to the show here.

Temperatures have cooled around here and it's the start of my favorite season: Fall. I'm off to take a walk - chat with you next week. In the meantime, edit well!
