What It Is

“Game Change” is an HBO film about Sarah Palin that was based on a book that was written by the dude that called President Obama a dick on national television:

According to the interviews I’ve seen, the book is actually about both the Democrat and Republican races in 2008, but since they had to condense it to a 2-hour movie, they elected to focus on the Palin angle.

Also according to video footage I’ve seen, both Palin and John McCain have denounced the film, even though neither had seen it at the time of their interviews, but that makes sense if they weren’t personally consulted about the script and the potential authenticity (or not) of the book it was based on.

NYTVF: The Web Series Producers Guide

Last year, I was invited to speak @ the 2008 NYTVF (New York Television Festival).

Here’s the video of the entire panel discussion. My section begins @ 2:40.

This panel, featured distinguished content creators and arbiters offering audiences a primer on the best approaches to producing your Web series. Should you produce it yourself or wait for production money? How long should the show be, and how frequently should it appear? Do you syndicate, or offer it exclusively. Lastly, how do you get people to watch it? Panelists: * Paul Kontonis (Moderator) – CEO, For Your Imagination * Bill Cammack – Video Editor and Consultant * Kirby Ferguson – Writer/Director/Producer, GoodieBag.tv * Marc Hustvedt – Editor-in-Chief, Tubefilter News * Brett Wilson – Co-founder and CEO, TubeMogul

How To Color Correct Obama


Formats Available: iPod (.mp4)

Whomever you think is the best candidate, it’s in your best interest to VOTE this Tuesday, November 4th, 2008 in the United States Presidential Election.

Bre Pettis, Justin Johnson, Clint Comer and I are all releasing new videos every weekday of November 2008, and re-releasing “old” videos every Saturday and Sunday. Check the far right sidebar for avatars with links to their videoblogs.

My first contribution is this video I made in March, 2008 which shows how to scene-match video footage using filters in Final Cut Pro. I figured I’d bring it back since the election’s so close, and it reminds me of how different things were back in March, before the Democrats or Republicans had selected their representatives and before their representatives had selected their running mates.

It’s been interesting. Let’s see what happens on the 4th! πŸ˜€
