Sept. 5, 2016

It's Labor Day weekend in the US and just about everyone is taking the weekend off. IBC starts next week and no one is pre-announcing anything. And, this may come as a surprise, but Apple has a big announcement planned for Wednesday. So if ever there was a weekend where NOTHING is happening, this is it.

Next week, the lid should blow off - with plenty to talk about. But, not today. Sigh...  

I have a new article for you, whether you prefer Premiere or Final Cut this covers both. Along with an article on how to apply for a $7,000 feature film grant.

But, first, Dr. Marc Batschkus, a good friend and long-time expert on archiving, just updated his book on "Data Management, Backup and Archive for Media Professionals." This 157 page book is FREE, is filled with great ideas, and is absolutely worth reading.

This ebook offers practical advice, information and field experience to make better decisions on how to protect media through all stages of the workflow. Relevant technologies from ingest to long-term archiving are explained. Learn more here:

The Digital Production Buzz is back into full production and we are having fun. We've expanded our coverage to include film criticism from Laura Blum and how to run a successful creative business from Scott Page. Plus, we have more experts like Ned Soltz, Philip Hodgetts and Michael Kammes on each show, along with our trademark longer interviews so you can really get inside a subject. If you haven't listened recently, now is a great time to start. Here's the link to last week's show.

I'm holding off starting webinars for one more week - I want to see what gets announced at IBC before restarting. Also, I'm grateful for everyone's ideas on subjects to cover. I'm working on my fall series now, so these helped a lot.

I hope you had a good weekend, enjoy your holiday and we'll talk again next week. Edit well.
