29 Apr

Here’s the new trailer for our anti-bullying film, The A.B. Zone coming this fall. I’m acting as Producer, Assistant Director, DP, and Editor. Check it out and let me know what you all think.

The AB Zone or “The Anti-Bullying Zone” is about Two schools, Five bullies, 2 days and no violence. Students learn how to handle a bully and bullies learn about how to get help before they strike.

Final Cut Pro X – Redesigned from the Ground Up!

12 Apr


A few hours ago, Apple announced a new version of Final Cut Pro (called Final Cut Pro X (FCPX)) will be releasing this June for only $299!!! FCPX, which has been “rebuilt from the ground up”:

  • Now 64-bit, with OpenCL support
  • All editing native – no transcoding (for supported formats incl. H264, I assume)
  • New UI (screenshots forthcoming) with “magnetic timeline” and new clip sync method
  • Resolution independent playback system
  • Handles up to 4K
  • Uses Grand Central Dispatch to utilize all your cores
  • Fully color-managed (ColorSync)
  • Media ready for editing immediately – but stabilization, audio and shutter correction, shot detection and preliminary color balancing automatically applied during ingest
  • Timecode-based keywording within clips
  • Collections and “smart” collections of media based on metadata and analysis, presented in iMovie filmstrip style
  • Auto-syncing clips via audio waveform analysis (very nice if it works as advertised)
  • Automated color-matching between clips

Here’s some spy footage from inside the presentation (There’s a lot of blank spots where the camera had to be hidden, show some compassion LOL)

Video streaming by Ustream

For a play by play account of what was mentioned throughout the presentation, take a look at Photography Bay’s Live Blog.

This release might restore my faith in the title…
