GIMP – The GNU Image Manipulation Program – FREE

Like photoshop only free! 🙂

As some of  you may have figured out, I am a HUGE fan of free or open source software.  Over the years I have seen some of my favorites grow by leaps and bounds.  Gimp is one that I have played with before that seems to be getting better and better.

Apple Final Cut X Inspirational

Is Final Cut Pro X going to do to video what Gutenberg did with printing?

Here is a great article that I believe actually captures the vision Apple has for Final Cut X and beyond.

Excerpt from the article: “Suddenly the skills that had kept them in the roles that they had had for centuries started to change. They had to “retrain” and become proficient in the new technologies of their business.”

Here is the link to this great read: Is Final Cut Pro X going to do to video what Gutenberg did with printing?.

Thank you fcp.co for this great post!

Michael Wohl talks ‘The Joy of FCPX’ at the Amsterdam SuperMeet

Here is a great video I found on FCP.co on the the “Joy of using FCPX”.  What I like about this video is that we can really see the direction Final Cut is heading.  With all the hoopla and debate on Final Cut, it is nice to see someone that is thinking ahead of the curve instead of overanalyzing  the change Apple chose to do.

One thing I keep telling anyone that is willing to listen, is that every Non Linear Video Editor can pretty much do the same thing in similar ways, so it is nice to see a software that is rethinking the way we work.  I like to think that one day we will edit like in the movie Minority Report, which the new FCPX seems to be heading in that direction:

‪INSIDE — Day 1‬‏ – YouTube

Another great film edited by the talented Josh Bodnar. This film is different as you get to interact with the film through the social network, this is part one of eight. Great edit Josh!

Here is the breakdown sent to me by Josh:

Directed by D.J. Caruso ( DisturbiaI am Number FourEagle Eye) alongside Oscar-winning cinematographer Mauro Fiore (AvatarTraining DaySmokin’ Aces) and starring Emmy Rossum of Showtime’s Shameless as Christina, the main character.

Christina, a 20-something girl, has been trapped in a room left with a laptop and an internet connection. With no idea of how she got there, Christina mobilizes her social network to call on friends to help figure out clues on where she’s being held.

The film “Inside” premiered yesterday and is unveiled in 8 films over the next 10 days through social media platforms Facebook, Twitter,You Tube and the inside experience website. The films will be released every couple of days giving the audience more information, as well as clues from Christina via her Facebook, to participate in the films.

Enjoy the Inside Experience social film!
Check it out and get involved.
