Play day.

Have I mentioned that we pushed back the start of production on Trap’s High Falls movie? There are seven lead actors, and we just couldn’t quite get the scheduling for everyone worked out in time to shoot this summer.

Since we’re not shooting until 2012, we have time for a little R-and-D work. We did some of that Saturday when Trap and I rounded up most of the cast and shot a lot of test footage of them on motorcycles (did I mention High Falls is about a motorcycle road trip?). Trap is in the process of editing some of that test footage together. For now, here’s a nice GoPro frame of Kyle Holman (alum of Interplanetary and Hide and Creep) on his bike.

Apple recently released a new version of Final Cut Pro, the company’s flagship video editing software. And the professional editing crowd seems none too happy about it. In this blog post, special effects artist Ron Brinkman explains why it might be time for those pro editors to find a different app to cut their movies.

To promote their new movie, Cowboys and Aliens, director Jon Favreau interviewed star Harrison Ford.

Looks like DC is selling digital versions of some of their old comics for 99 cents each. I hope this is the start of a trend–I love cheap digital comics!

Stacey and I are going on a vacation soon. So it’s time to order more CF cards for the camera. I think I’ll try one of the expensive cards, too.

I love it when scientists get all existential. (via Ebert)

    How can you have a new version of Final Cut Pro when it is Final?

  2. Chance says:

    It’s kind of like a sequel to The NeverEnding Story.

    Thanks, Andrew! I really like the angle of that shot, and the sky reflecting of the bike’s gas tank is a nice bonus.
