What do you like about this subject?

Translate my film production, camera production and video editing into learning experiences and useful information for others to learn by.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Hi, I offer one on one consulting sessions in the West San Fernando Valley. This is an excellent method for learning whether or not to spend your own money buying video equipment.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Videotape is being phased out, yet there is no true archival, affordable, replacement format for videotape, DVD is not it, that's for sure. Film actually lasts the longest at this point in time. Solid State technology may eventually be the archival winner.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

I don't want to see the day when film is no longer made at all and everyone "creates' via the computer and only via the "latest and greatest" software. I don't like the idea that basic creative tools can be pulled away from the user at any moment by software obsolescence or "upgrades". Apple introduces Snow Leopard and my Canon Powershot camera will not upload.
