Git large files.

Radiolab on The Ring.




Tybalt
Yeah. Gimme your weapon.

Sata
Uh. Yes Sir.

Sata hands it over.
Sata: You shot him! Why did you shoot him?
BLAM! Tybalt shoots Mach right in the chest.

Down the hall:

RAZE

TYBALT

Sata

Falls to the ground.

Tybalt
Go after that trooper.

Raze grunts as she comes to a stop.

Raze
What in the name are you doing?

Raze
You. What’s your name? Private Riggs?

Riggs
Shut up. I’m supposed to kill you.

Raze
Who says?

Riggs

Raze
You’re not supposed to shoot people on your own team.

Still have to solve power

A way to store the SSD card in a handle is fine. And except for the fact the monitor is a touchscreen it would be relatively easy to put a Loupe on the BMCC4K. It wouldn't be off-axis like regular cameras are, but rather the viewfinder looks right down the lens. I mean, not really. But it's in line with the lens. I still need either a Western dolly or a doorway dolly.

Linear Baby Wipes

I keep forgetting how to make a film-like wipe, with a nice feather in it, in Premiere Pro. The effect is called "Linear Wipe." You need to put it on the outgoing clip.

The photographer's ephemeris is a great online tool for figuring out where the heck the sun will be at a particular time on a particular date in a particular place. If you don't want the sun behind the camera (or, if you do), you need to have a way of figuring out where it'll be. Won't account for clouds though. Of course.

If you need to rent a Stryker in Canada, you can go to BlueLeader.

Premiere project downgrader. Yes, this piece of information will save the lives of those around you, and keep you from serving jail time.

Terry Britton on hardware mapping in Samplitude. Which is a pain in the tuchus for me at this time.

So, Auphonic is an online service for loudness normalizing audio and suchwise for podcasts. They'll do 2 hours for you per month for free. It's pretty nice really.

PaulXStretch plugin. Yeah, I know this audio stuff should go on another blog. But it isn't. So that's just how it is.

Strezov Sampling has some free drums and such.

Glivular Marimbunek

I dig Lindsay Ellis' essay on 3-act structure. Sure, I hate thinking about structure as having 3 acts, but if you're gonna call it a 3-act structure, this feels about right.

If I liked whiskey, or had an English accent, I'd be much more successful.
