I love the way Apple opens their WWDC Keynote addresses. These image pieces are among some of the most beautiful corporate pieces made in the world. They move, they inspire, they make you believe that things can, and PROBABLY will be better. I don’t know if Apple can really do that, but all the evidence is pointing to the fact that they are doing a pretty good job.
I firmly believe there are Facebook people and Twitter people and in an attempt to explain Twitter to a friend of mine I thought I’d do a VERY basic walk thru of how I use Twitter.
My good friend Dave Dugdale asked me if I would be willing to sit down with him at NAB and cut a piece he had shot. I was honored that he wanted to shoot the whole thing and make a tutorial out of it. I’d never been asked to actually explain so much about what was going on in my head and although it was a bit weird at first it actually made ME think abit about why I did so much of what I do on a day to day basic.
On a side note, I was TOTALLY impressed with how quickly Dave turned this tutorial around. He had a first draft to show me Saturday AM and he had left NAB on Thursday. Dave Started with about 3 hours of material and felt bad that he only got it down to 40 minutes but frankly, I think he did a great job.
I’d also like to credit Ryan Christensen one of the guests in the suite this evening, for giving me the tip that I used in my Multicam Syncing tutorial. Everyone shows you how to sync a few clips together but Ryans tips made it MUCH easier to sync MANY clips all at the same time. Its VERY powerful and I’d recommend you check it out as Doug cut all of the syncing out of THIS edit demo for times sake.
Creating Synced Multicam clips is something that I do all the time. Most people demo how it works by taking two clips and syncing them. But what do you do if you have a folder full of clips from a shoot. We routinely do interviews with two cameras and with “Spanning Clips” it can be a little tricky keeping track of all the break points. This tutorial shares a new technique I learned from Ryan Christensen during Dave Dugdale’s NAB Edit Demo.
