  1. Editing without a computer

    by , 04-08-2012 at 06:56 PM (The Digital Director Experience: Video Editing Fundamentals)
    Iíve been a reluctant iPad convert, but itís slowly pushed out my laptop over the last year. I now rarely use my PC for anything other than video editing. And itís not just the iPad, but the apps themselves that make the iPad a real alternative to using a PC. The apps often outperform their bloated PC counterpart, and at a price that suits almost anyoneís budget. So could I do without my PC? Is there an app that can compete with a PC for video editing? Could an app take a fresh approach to editing? ...

  2. What people think

    Does it really matter what other people think of your work? I'd imagine all of us want our films to be liked, but it is highly unlikely that everyone watching will form the same, or even similar opinions. Even when a whole bunch of people express a very strong opinion, it's just as likely that there will be others expressing the opposite.

    by , 10-09-2011 at 06:02 PM (The Digital Director Experience: Video Editing Fundamentals)
    Cameras are everywhere and broadcasting to the world via YouTube. Mobile phones provide high quality videos in a tiny package, and phones like the nokia n8 even provide instant editing and upload. It's never been so easy to film, edit and share your video. You could say we're in a golden age of instant access and portability. A position only dreamt of 5 years ago. Anyone can become a video star, and by the look of YouTube, everyone has.

  5. I want a free wedding video....

    So many times we see these posts - usually along the lines of "I have no money left over but I really want a video"

    The wedding is (or should be) the biggest (or certainly one of the biggest) days of our lives - so why leave it to chance?
    Would you have a wedding without a cake for instance? Or flowers? Or a posh frock? No - so why skimp on the one thing that'll preserve the day forever - long after the cake is eaten, the flowers have wilted and the frock has gone off ...
