THE INTERSECTION OF ART AND TECHNOLOGY!
I'm teaching last week and this at Anderson Ranch Arts Center
in Aspen, Colorado. This is my second year here and it is a fascinating place.
Founded in the mid-1970's as a place for traditional artists to learn and polish their art, it has expanded into a number of programs: furniture design and work-working; painting, drawing and print-making; ceramics; sculpture; and, most recently, photography and digital media. As I walk around the campus I am dazzled by how much more there is to art than media.
What I find interesting about this place is the breadth of discussions between faculty and students about learning new skills and better ways to be creative. The cafe conversations are endlessly fascinating. This is a very different environment from the places I usually teach; I find it very intriguing.
This week, I'm teaching an intensive course in creating mini-documentaries. I'll have more on what I learned teaching this class in next week's newsletter.
FEATURED BUZZ INTERVIEW
I brought the Digital Production Buzz with me to Anderson Ranch for last week's show. There were a number of interesting interviews that originated here, but one that I would especially like to call to your attention: George Jardine
George was one of the original team that helped develop both Premiere and After Effects. He went on to become the product manager for Adobe Lightroom.
In this interview, he reflects on his time with Adobe and how technology has changed the art of photography.

(By the way, if you enjoyed what George had to say, check out the interview we did with Greg Gorman
and R. Mac Holbert
. These two professional photographers both got their start with rock and roll bands in the 70's and made the transition into digital. Both are world-famous and very informed about he creative and technical aspects of their art. I think you'll like their interview as well.)

The "Three Formats" of Filmmaking
Easily a third of my email are questions about video formats, converting formats, and the best way to export the highest quality media.
There is so much confusion about how to deal with all the codecs of filmmaking that I wrote a blog to help put it all into perspective.
ARTICLE: FINAL CUT PRO X
Stacking Multiple Effects
The order in which you apply visual effects plays a significant role in what the finished effect looks like.
In this step-by-step article, I explain what "stacking order" is, when you need to pay attention to it, and how to change it.
If your projects need effects, you need to read this article.
ARTICLE: FINAL CUT PRO X
A Cool Compound Clip Effect
Compound clips are the new version of what we called "Nests" in Final Cut Pro 7. They allow us to group clips together and apply effects to the entire group.
This means that compound clips allow us to create effects that we just can't create any other way. This article shows you an interesting effect you can create with a compound clip.
Learn Apple Compressor 4
Ultimately, all our projects end up on the web. Which means that if we don't know how to compress our video to make it look good, all our work during production and post is wasted.
In this in-depth, video training, Larry Jordan shows you how to make the most of Apple Compressor 4.
Whether you are a new or experienced editor, this training will help you make your media look and sound great!
Here are the top three articles, webinars, and audio interviews for the past seven days.Articles
