Editing Software

I'm really do not like what they did to Final Cut Pro. It's now iMovie based when it use to be Avid based. I have no control over saving files were I want them and can refind them. It puts all projects in one project. Can you imaging 10 separate feature film projects with 40 hours of footage all jumbled in one project?

It's not going to work at all for me. 

I looked into Preiemere Pro. It only offers a monthly rental of the program and I suspect that you can't canciel it it you run out of money to pay them. 

My free copy of Sony Vegas hasn't arrived yet. I'm guessing they have a 3 month turn around on free offers. I would need to buy a $2000 Windows 7 computer to run it

So Avid editing software looks the most attractive to me right now. It's $1299 Himmmm

Moving Forward

Well I haven't been able to get my footage off the new camera yet. Purchased a new Mac and downloaded a bunch of programs but it still won't see the SXS XDCAM footage. Not sure how to fix it. 
Anyways. I'm filming GLWT on Saturday and a production meeting for GLC on Sunday.

It was a long day

Well that concludes another broadcast day. It start around 4:30 am. and now it's 11:30 pm   I purchased a new Mac Mini after an endless screech for used computers that might work. The ones I wanted where sold before I found them.  I barked an SXS card ready to try and get the footage off the cards but it's a no go. I installed allot of drivers and programs from Sony to make it work and it's still a no go. 

The blu Ray burner I purchased doesn't work at all with Mac even tho the box and website say it does 

Anyways tommorrow is a new day 

All new HD camera

We finally did it. We got a new HD camera after saving for two years and a dollar for dollar dintation. Thank you so much D J Bastillle.  Here is a link to the un boxing video.

I waited ten years for this day.

I waited ten years for the day when I would have two matching 23" monitors for my G5. And today is the day. I found one I could aford, drove three hours in freezing rain and a snow storm. Cocked it out to the best of my computer knalahe and is looks good. I got home hooked it all up and the moment of trueth. It works but there is some kind of problem. I can't get the two monitors to match color. The power button is glowing green instead of white. Hummmm I will need to buy another one.

Good Luck With That. Project

So I worked on the film schedule for most of yesterday. I kind of have the mississauga cast orginized. Now today's task is to figure out the cambridge casts schedule. 

I do have some more casting to do for both films and So I need to get some script pages orginized. I also need to have a meeting with Quinn about rewrites 

I did a bunch of work on the website yesterday as well. Also trying to set up a meeting with the music talent we are hoping to use in the film. 

Also on the list for today. Booking hall with a stage for the dance / concert. Also booking the swimming pool. Both will require payment up Frount so I will need to barrow the money from someone. 

A great big thank you goes out to everyone that has donated money so far.
