    I'm running on 36 hours. Two shoots back to back, an overnight into (another show) day shoot. On the overnight I had a walkie talkie, but not on the day shoot after.

    I still heard voices on my invisible walkie.

    If you'll excuse me, I'm going to get some sleep so I can wake up at 5:30 and shoot in the Sears tower.

    Has anybody ever tried one of the courses available on lynda.com? I'm fairly familiar with Final Cut Express, but I'd like to learn Final Cut Pro for whenever I get it myself. I was just wondering if Lynda is good place to start?

    Wait, which Final Cut Pro? And are you looking for skills for industry work? Because at this point it's rather superfluous to learn it at all with so many people bailing on Apple. If you're looking at FCPX for yourself, I'd just wait until you get it and learn it on your own. It looks simple enough to figure out.

    I think he meant FCP 7 or 6. I'd say pick up Premiere or Avid instead.

    In that case you can't get it anyway since Apple immediately pulled it from the store.

    Yeah, I do mean FCP7. I was just gonna pick up a second hand copy of Final Cut Studio 3 from eBay. Also, when I go off to university I'd like to work on my projects on my own system and not just the classroom. Either way though, I was asking about the Lynda training videos - not software choice :p. Don't get me wrong though, your comments are appreciated! I might lay off the purchase until I start the course, for all I know they may have now updated all of their systems.

    The Larry Jordan stuff for FC5 & 6/FCS2 is great. Concise and pleasant instruction. For later stuff, I dunno.

    Heeyyy buddies....

    I know times are tough, but the music for my feature is now on iTunes and well, frankly, I'll be your best friend if you bought it. Next time any of you are in Chicago...tell me and I'll do you a solid. Word?

    Hmm. I haven't been to Chicago since late '08... I wonder if that's the building I saw going up then.

    A proud day for every TFN kiddie: today I got paid to do lightsaber vfx. (I'm editing and doing 2D effects for a toy commercial. Nothing astonishing, but hey, it's work and it's a saber.)

    Vvvrreewwwww!

    So, news. At Otakon a couple of weeks ago (with both of us in costume 'cause we're geeks like that), I proposed to Steph, and she said yes :D So Boter is now engaged. Yay!

    We kept it offline for a couple weeks so we could tell family members, but now I can share. So I did!

    So when am I going to have grandkids? That's all I want, Boter! I'm not going to live forever!

    My dream for the reception is to present a shot-for-shot live-action remake of the scene from the original Clone Wars where Anakin gets his braid chopped off and is granted the rank of Knight.

    Can't believe Boter still has that thing.
