Stuck Blues

I am stuck trying to edit a single shot with various fields of view with Final Cut. Moved off this task for now.

Reviewed the lesson on lynda.com about ripple, slip and slide editing. The quarter speed rocking the reels (by holding down the k key) looks to be very useful too.

Meanwhile, I watched an interesting documentary, Beware of Mr. Baker on Netflix. It is the story of drummer Ginger Baker.

Rock Creek Prod Mtg

Screenwriting task and editing tools discussed late in May 2014 at the Rock Creek Tavern. Dog Story's Director and Executive Producer Jasmine were in attendance.

Only one shot was taken but it serves well in exploring some of Final Cut features.

Often mentioned is the Storyboard ....

Creative Types

The sixth issued US patent in which I was an inventor has just happened. The invention field was personal transportation. I was one of several who contributed to the unique vehicle disclosed in it.

Meanwhile, I continue to learn the Final Cut Pro 10.1.1 movie editing software.

Clearly, the are a plethora of variations on what it means for someone to be biased to creative endeavors. My current interest is at the meta level, the how of creativity in general.

Keyframe - when change is about to occur.

I watched the deciding game of a seven game series last night. My team playing at home …

Suspense uses the advantage of predicted surprise. The Game, where anything to happen in a close contest. It did with nine/tenths seconds to play.
