this afternoon, i braved the line at the RED booth. someone at apple told me that they were
screening some test footage that peter jackson shot in new zealand.
he shot a 12 minute war short with the red camera in 2 days in new zealand. for "test footage", it's pretty
impressive. im still not a full bore digital convert; i still believe that film offers you something that digital can't
yet, but i believe peter jackson has now made the switch. 4K is getting there...
i have no idea what this is.
because we showed up later today, the apple theatre was already packed.
i got in on the wait list for another couple training classes. these ones were in motion and "color";
the new color grading suite independent of final cut. extremely impressive.
jamie and i left somewhat early to make sure we made it to the venetian hotel early enough to
get good seats at the final cut pro user group super meet.
we were too early to get in, so after registration, i went lurking about the hotel for a bite.
this place also has a fake sky and is designed to somewhat resemble venice.
