I have four new articles for you this week - including an important blog on HDR - along with new tutorials covering Final Cut Pro X, Motion, Compressor and Adobe Audition. (I'm interested in your comments on the blog - feel free to share it with your friends.)

I'm running my Final Sale this week. I'm still not totally clear on what's happening to my company after the end of March, as soon as I know, I'll share the news with you; hopefully in next week's newsletter. In the meantime, I want to give you one last chance to get the training you need and SAVE 15% at the same time. This sale includes everything except Video Training Library memberships - our membership software does not support discounts, for which I apologize.

The Digital Production Buzz has a very interesting show this week. Over the last six months, I've noticed significant changes in the business of our business. This week, Mike and I will talk with three different guests who have an overview perspective of our industry. One of them is Kevin Bourke, head of Bourke PR. Kevin works for a number of leading edge clients and is a very keen observer of what's happening. You'll enjoy his thoughts.

Yesterday, Pete Grayson released a new interview with me on his website: Short Film Stuff. I had fun with it and hope you enjoy it. More details are below.

Spring is on the way - though never soon enough. Yay! Chat with you next week.

Time for "Larry's Last Sale."

Changes are coming for both me and my company. The only problem is I'm not yet sure exactly what they are.

Still, I do know that now is the perfect time to offer one last sale on all my training - everything except for Video Training Library memberships. (Our subscription software does not support discounts.)
