Wow! Quite a while since I updated this puppy. Lot's has been going on... No, we're still not finished with that short! The director got stuck with "real" work, so he hasn't been able to get the darn thing finished. So much for shooting for that end of August deadline. We were, however, able to get a short little 1 min. 15 sec. opening clip worked on for a showing at the Tower Theater (Downtown Salt Lake City, Utah). Supposedly it went over very well, I was unable to attend, so I gotta take people's word.
I start shooting a couple of shorts tomorrow. The first is for the DVXUser.com HallowsFest. That's all I can say. I'm not even posting to say that I'm joining, until I've got some footage shot. The second short will be another Halloween based film.
Sony has been showing off their XDCAM EX1 camera. This is going to be a sweet addition to the already well known Panasonic HVX200. Both camera's record to memory sticks, for a tapeless workflow. Google "Sony XDCAM EX" for more information.
Sony has also released v8 of the popular Vegas NLE. Now sporting a new name "Vegas Pro 8", this looks to be a pretty decent release. I've got the demo, and will provide more info once I can get around to testing it out.
Well, it's back to the grind....
