New Edits

I know, I know, I haven't had time to post. Been editing, and trying to keep up with everything else. Here are two new videos. Again, as always, I learned a lot in the process, but until I catch up I won't have time to post any notes or discussion.... Maybe soon.

Frugal Traveler: The Grand Tour

I'll post some notes on the editing process for this when I catch my breath (maybe on the weekend) but, until then, here's the first week of "The Grand Tour."

Frugal Traveler Wins a Webby

Frugal Traveler: American Road Trip -- the video series I edited 12 episodes of last summer -- won the Webby Award in the "Travel" category of the "Online Film & Video" division today. Congratulations to Matt Gross and the entire Frugal team.

A new series of Frugal Traveler episodes is coming in just a few weeks, by the way....

Oh, Canada

Even the Canadian taggers are polite.

Aftermath: The Susan Lucci of the IDC

At the screening, our film played very well. The audience laughed in the right places, applauded strongly, and seemed to like it.

The level of quality this year, however, was very, very high, and all 14 of the films were strong. So, the judges didn't see it our way, not even on Best Use of Time Stamp.

That's okay: there was a vodka bar within walking distance, and after two Rosemary Martinis, it started to seem like a good idea to enter again next year....

The highlight of our visit to the Duke of York? That would be meeting Tony. Follow the link to read his notes from this years' event.

The Duke of York

The two years we've gone to the IDC finals we've made it to the scheduled filmmaker get-together at The Duke of York. Meet the other teams, have a beer, wait for any nervousness about the screening to pass. Great fun.

One note: do not try to say "The Duke of York" when you've been drinking, as it may come out "The Dork of Yuke."
