He liked the feel of the imagery created for "American Pastime," where the images play a big part in creating the mood and help tell the undercurrents of the story. His pitch had me from the beginning-a dramatic story of racial inequality, told with black and white imagery. The issue became not one of "can I" or "will I" do it, as I was obviously interested, but one of budget. Read More

 Sundance: Kurt Cobain Documentary Director Explains Dave Grohl's Absence From Film
Brett Morgen's Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck has all the subjects you'd expect: Cobain's widow Courtney Love , Cobain's parents and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic — everyone except Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl.

Editing 4K Video on Surface Pro with Sony Vegas
Editing 4K Video on Surface Pro with Sony Vegas
A few weeks ago I showed that a Microsoft Surface 3 could successfully run a full on non-linear video editor using Sony Vegas 13 Pro as the host program.

To start with, I really threw a challenge at it, loading up some 4K footage shot from Panasonic's HC-X1000 pro camera. The footage was ingested with no fuss and throwing it on the timeline caused no protests from either Vegas or the Surface. Read More
