So at NAB I purchased another GoPro Camera as well as the 3D case so I could get some practice editing 3D footage. The only draw back so far, I have not yet attempted to edit any footage, seems to be that I have to have a 3D television to watch polarized 3D, no blue and red in full color, but I can watch 3D using the blue and red glasses on any monitor. Stay tuned for some 3D footage, so hold on to any cheap blue and red glasses you may come across.
Back from NAB and overwhelmed as ever. I took classes covering, final cut pro, motion, typography, and portfolio development. The classes were very helpful however a lot of the topics covered I had previously learned at Platt college. The event floor has very crowded with so many booths it was impossible to see them all. I spent a lot of time looking at smaller cameras such as GoPro, V.I.O. , and Contour. Many of the booths were very impressive but I was most impressed with the release of Final Cut Pro X (http://www.engadget.com/2011/04/12/apple-announces-final-cut-pro-x-rebuilt-from-ground-up-with-64/) at the convention. All in all it was a great experience and I hope to visit again next year.
My Glamor and Glow video is also finished so check it out if you like music, lasers, and swimwear. It was a ton of fun to shoot as well as edit.
Well I am off very early this morning to head out to the NAB show. I will be out taking classes on Final Cut Pro as well as walking the floor tslking to the exibitors. I will be taking a few other classes, not sure exactly what yet. If you want to see the newest technology in media, the NAB show is the place to be check it out. Here is a link to the 2011 NAB show site.
Today after finishing a wedding, I am now working on rough cuts, song editing, and then a final edit down to somewhere around three minutes. I don’t have a time restriction which is nice, but it is suppose to be around three minutes long and the song is almost five minutes. I look forward to cutting the song up, it gives your eyes a break and keeps your ears working well. I have a ton of great footage, it seems like the hardest part will be sifting through my nearly thirty minutes of rough cuts. Check back for the finished video sometime late this week.
After getting a much needed eight hours of sleep I’m off to editing weddings on this beautiful sunny day.
