Okay, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Damn, V's trying to ruin my holiday." I'm not. Promise. I bear no ill will against you, your turkey, or your family that just flew in from Chicago. All I'm saying, and call it heresy if you want, is that maybe The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Thanksgiving movie.
And I know what you're thinking now. You're thinking, "Hey idiot, Continue reading "Wait…Is ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ Actually a Thanksgiving Movie?"

I have used VEGAS Pro for more than ten years, and a big part of the reason I use it as my “go-to” NLE above any other choice is that it really is a comprehensive all-in-one set of tools. It actually lets you finish the whole project from the beginning to the end within one software package.

In the United States, it’s that time of year where we reenact the original harvest dinner between the Pilgrims and the Indians of the ‘New World.’ Wait, which Indians are we talking about? Maybe you’ve forgotten that the tribe is the Wampanoag; they have not. (Anne Makepeace’s documentary We Still Live Here would be a good refresher on that topic.) Also, the world wasn’t new.
