Apple to hold a special event on Feb. 28th, 2006

I very excited about tomorrow, Tuesday Feb. 26th, 'cause Apple is holding another "special event". I hope they have a lot of new Ipod announcements. Like a new true video Ipod. I want a new one, not there's anything wrong with the one I've got. Its just that its an old 3G"touch-wheel" model, with absolutely no video support or even photos. I will be suprised if there are not Ipod announcements tomorrow.

First time using the Google Blogger widget for Mac OSX "TIger"

Ok this is the first post using Google' blogger widget in Mac OS X "Tiger".  Right now it seems as if some of the words are unreadable, but it may be a issue with the widget.  Other than that, a quick and easy way to post to my blog.

Film Club meeting and MUG meeting

Went to the first MUG (Mac User Group) meeting of the semester. It was pretty cool, we went over all the announcements at Mac World which most of us already knew about. I think we have a meeting next Tuesday so more stuff to come from the house that Apple built. At the Film Club meeting this week, NOTHING happened, one of our memeber is working on a short titled "Vacation" but he's still working out technical difficulties and isn't read to cast yet so we'll see. I can't wait for Montage to get released so I can start writing "Nicole" as well as various other shorts I have in mind. I also got ILife '06 so I'm thinking about a new website for Dusk till Dawn Productions. Most likely it will be done with iWeb, since its simple to do. I can hardly wait for Apple to release its next Ipod, as well as for Nintendo to release its DS lite, and I want a new Intel iMac so bad. Hopefully the spring will be nice to me and I can get all these things before the fall semester.

Thoughts on the 2006 Arkansas Film Cineposium in Little Rock

Well I got back from the Film Cineposium Sunday night and let me tell ya it was quite an eye opener for me. Jeff Seckendorf is a DP who has work with some of the Hollywood finest for more than 20 years. His prefered medium is 35mm film. I can't blame him, it produces great images and like he said the tape based formats will probably not be around 100 years from now, but we'll always have a lense and a light bulb. As far a tape based systems go however, he would use nothing less than the Panasonic DVX100 or HVX200 series of cameras. You can see some sample clips from the films he worked on at his website at snaproll and you can check out his audio training books at oneononefilmtraining. You can also check out his award-winning short film: The Crux at the crux movie.
