Avid: Customizing Your Bin

I had to create my own bin settings in Avid so I decided to make a quick little tutorial on how to modify the different columns and headings in your bin in Avid. I like how you can switch back and forth between bins so easily too. Excuse my non-audio-mixed voice in this. You can […]

The Old Spice Commercial

I love this ad. I rewatch it on the DVR as often as possible before someone asks me to turn LOST back on. Scott Simmons over at the Edit Blog posted a link to a video on how they did the video. I thought it was worth linking to. Real posts coming again soon. Just […]

Playing DP and Good Tips in the realm of the Digital SLR
