Nanotechnology

Just as we are getting used to the Digital Age, we are about to be overwhelmed by the ‘Nano Age’. Often wondered how that will affect me as a story teller/film director. I look at a Camera, which is really a passive recording device that ‘reads’ light as refelected by the observed object. Nano technology may soon bring to us an ‘active recording device/camera. What might it be ?……

Intellectual Property and Piracy

I have been both attending and speaking on conferences on the future of Media and Technology. I use the two terms together as more and more Technlogy and Entertainment/Media are converging to become the same bussiness.

Coincidence (again)

Question inspired by Andrew’s post : Do coincidences occur as events that we become startingly aware of, or do we subconciously manifest them ourselves ?

Andrew’s post on coincidence

The Mother

Oscars. Red carpet. Elizabeth. Vanity Fair Party, squeezing through. Frenzied media. Who’s this guy in the Maharaja dress ? Better take his picture just in case someone pays for it. Elton John’s party. Excuse me, did I step on your Prada shoes ? Oops, sorry, did I spill my drink on your dress as I was trying to sqeeze past ? Where’s the bathroom please. Who am I ? What’s this attention all about ? How did I get lucky ? Did I get lucky ?

Tricks of the Trade

A major benefit of working with experienced crew is seeing their methods to get work done quickly. When making films at school or with inexperienced friends you muddle through learning by trial and error. I cut a film recently and had a lot of trouble with a sequence. I was cutting at home on Adobe Premier Pro.
