    Web Host?

    iPage wants to charge me $12/mo on my 24mo renew. This feels steep. Any suggestions on a host for my site?

    Shooting In UK

    Just got back from two weeks of shooting VFX plates in the UK. What a beautiful country (as seen mostly from the back seat of a car). My hotel was build in the 1700's! Great production and a fantastic cast/crew with a real sense of camaraderie. They gave me an embarrassingly-generous send off...

    Need Some VFX Support?

    Greetings . I'm a VFX Supervisor. Over the past year, I've had several Indie Talkers reach out and ask me specific questions about how to create specific VFX shots ... indie-style. Please consider this post an open invitation to drop me a line if you want any assistance in how to plan...

    iPhone Video Camera App for Practice?

    I'd like to shoot some video with my iPhone5c and was wondering if there was a "go-to" app that would give me more manual control of the video camera.

    Time off from work, so I can work

    This gig has left me an absolute basket-case from constant travel and 7-day weeks. My immune system is shot and every morning my right eye is swollen shut. What remains of my hairline has receded faster than a Chilean glacier. I haven't worked in TV for many years, and it has really pushed me...

    March, already?

    Ever since I took this new gig, post production on my short film has slowed to a crawl. Only 10 VFX shots to go, but still the end eludes me. I'm hoping that telling on myself will push me to wrap up me short. This new job is a fantastic opportunity. I haven't done TV work in about 17 years...

    Nice Way To End The Year

    Last week, I started a new VFX gig on a large production. Last night, I shot the final VFX fire elements for VFX for my short film (nobody got hurt!). Tonight, I'm, spending New Years animating a CG car crash. On target and moving forward. I hope to keep this momentum in 2014. Happy New...

    VFX Resource: Lens Distortion Grids

    THIS SITE has grids for many types of lenses. A good resource for Compositors who need to un-distort a plate in order to track in additional elements. Thomas

    Pickups v.s. Principle Photography

    All the work and 1% of the crew. I'm glad it's done. Much respect to PAs, Grips, and Gaffers; my muscles are shot.

    I knew her when ...

    The female co-star in my short will be on the Emmy Awards tonight. She is one of two hostesses who brings out the awards and escorts the winners off stage. What a great gig! I'm very happy for her. On my short, she almost went home before her audition because she didn't think she was the...

    First Assembly Edit Completed.

    I'm back. I've been laying low, planning my post production workflow, and basically getting my ducks in a row. Last night, I finished the first assembly edit of my film. It's too long, clunky and lacks any refinement, yet I'm happy with where things stand. It's very encouraging to see...

    Good Link Re: Copyright|Logos|Brands|Music

    I keep seeing these questions popping up: - Can I protect my idea before pitching it? - Shooting recognizable locations or products. - Photo releases. - Do I have to license the music for Kickstarter campaign video? Here's a LINK to the answers from an entertainment attorney. Thomas

    Conforming in FCP7 & Merged Clips

    Let me start by saying that I'm not an editor by trade, and do not consider myself particularly 'technical', but as a VFX guy I like develop a plan before I dive into a project. I wanted to learn two workflows before I started editing my short: 1) How to do an offline edit in ProRes-Proxy and...

    MPEG Streamclip = No TC (do I care?)

    I transcoded all my footage to ProRes Proxy using MPEG Streamclip, and now see that it didn't pass the timecode to the new file. I've done several tests with conforming back to the original HQ footage and it seems to work just fine. Although it's much slower than MPEG Streamclip, Compressor...
