EOSHD.com: Panasonic GH4 Review.

Likely most of what you’re dying to know: “None of the other 4K solutions at the moment including the upcoming Sony A7S are as practical or as affordable as the GH4 for shooting cinematic 4K.

Vimeo: Twenty Eight Feet - life on a little wooden boat.

Looks lovely; yet among books I’ve read about longtime sailors, eating fish constantly made them crave land-animal meat to an inordinate degree.

Vimeo: The Last Man on the Moon - Trailer.

Powerful. Jim Lovell’s aged quite a bit since I last saw him (he was a keynote speaker at some shows I was involved in). I suppose my child-memory thinks of these guys as age-proof.

CNBC: GoPro gets ready to go public, but is it a good investment?

I was just wondering … remember the Flip video camera? It was all the rage for … two years? Where’d it go? Video is going to be iterating very swiftly over the next couple of years. Very swiftly.

Art of VFX: NON-STOP: VFX Breakdown.

Always interesting to see. I can’t imagine how hard it is for modern actors to deal with the domination of greenscreen.  I’d start singing Kermit the Frog’s “It’s Not Easy Being Green” every time I walked into a greenscreen effects studio setup.

Interesting observations on the Panasonic GH4 (and 4K video) ...

ProLost: A GH4 in the hand and EOSHD: Shooting 4K for 2K on the GH4. Seems to imply the GH4 needs a bit of post to get the best out of it.

DSLR Video Shooter: 8 Terrible Camera Rig Ideas.

But, but, but … the footage. What does the footage look like? [Heh.] I see this kind of thing as necessary experimentation - so many still photogs are struggling to understand the benefits of a tried-and-true industry-standard ENG rig. I thought the back injuries from older Steadicam models were bad; these things might kill you.

Mashable: Heroic Cat Saves Child From Vicious Dog Attack.

I think much better of cats now. I bear many scars from bicycling by skulking, vicious undisciplined ‘driveway dogs’ who don’t have anything to do but contemplate premeditated attacks … and deploy them with limb-threatening accuracy. I bike near a dog in a driveway now, I turn around before I’m in ‘range.’

Youtube: George R. R. Martin Still Uses A DOS Word Processor.

Love it.

Much Later: I should mention Wordstar was a subject of derision when I first started temping in NYC. The Laniers, Wangs, Amtext-Jacquards and other dedicated word processors of the day had customized keyboards. No multiple-keystrokes required. Wordstar was considered slow and user-unfriendly; only for those folks trying to ‘save money’ over a ‘proper’ word processing system by buying one o’ them newfangled PC’s. Ah, the halcyon days of daisywheel printers and pin-feed paper ...
