Hey everyone. First of all, a quick thanks to Bruce Sharpe, CEO of Singular Software. His company made PluralEyes, the company I referenced in my previous Dear Production entry. A few days ago posted my blog on his twitter feed. That's big for someone like me who is brand new to this web 2.0 linked economy. He also recommended a good story about I Love Lucy and how the show really innovated multi-camera production. You can find Bruce on twitter and on blogspot, and probably at NAB this week. From his twitter feed: Here's the video I recommended about his company: (I'm just learning how to embed video on Wordpress) [blip.tv ?posts_id=1129108&dest=-1]
Also thanks to Lindsey Rundell, my assistant editor amigo, currently working on . She read my post and told me about Quickeys, a macros program which should make half of Avid Multi-Grouping easier. The program allows you to program a series of keystrokes into one keystroke so that, in her words, "It does the F1-6 deal for you AND adds the Aux TC." It looks like it would be a great help, but nothing is a replacement for proper production techniques. Thanks Lindsey!
