In December of 2019, Walter Murch extended me a generous invitation to come see a screening of his documentary, Coup 53, in San Francisco. Shortly before I went – armed with a ton of questions of my own – I asked the Facebook group of Blue Collar Post Collective if there was anything they’d like to ask Murch. I took their questions with me and presented them in this interview.

rogue-chassisDigitalGlue’s //ROGUE unit is a robust, affordable 48TB NAS drive for video editors and digital creatives. But what makes it truly unique in its price range is the managed storage software and remote monitoring service that comes with it.

I’m always nervous when asked to review a product by a site sponsor. I don’t want to be caught in the position of endorsing a product I wouldn’t actually want to own myself. Fortunately, the DigitalGlue //ROGUE turns out to be an exceptional product with a surprisingly reasonable price tag (starting at $4,795 for the 48TB version). It packs a massive

Frame.io has recently launched its new miniseries about a fully-digitalized workflow from home. Michael Cioni (SVP of Global Innovation, frame.io) presents the series that covers a fully centralized cloud-based production workflow.

A 100 square foot patient overflow isolation room that my friend, Theron Whitney thought up to help patients and healthcare workers during our current Pandemic crisis. I quickly produced a video to help him make healthcare administrators aware of it.

Besides being the title of a really cool 1979 Talking Heads tune, “life during wartime” feels like what we are all enduring right now with our battle against the COVID 19 virus.
