Paper for iPad is great for storyboarding. Drawing these things on paper dead trees, scanning them and sticking them to a script was always a pain in the ass. With Paper, I draw them up anywhere, and email/MMS them to relevant parties for immediate viewing, feedback, and changes.
This was a scene from the latest episode of Car Jumper.
New monitor! Looking forward to regretting this investment when I get my first IMAX kit.
EDIT: Or regretting it two hours later. An HDMI connector brushed against the screen, and now it has a scratch right in the middle. I called support about getting another LCD protector to replace it with, but it turns out that the product ships with a naked LCD screen, and I “should have” purchased the acrylic snap-on protector.
Why the shit is there a naked LCD screen on a product that is supposed to survive conditions on set?
Why didn’t anybody at SmallHD tell me that the acrylic snap-on thing was important?
Because it’s the LCD itself that needs to be replaced, it’s a $300 repair. This really, really makes me appreciate the iPhone and iPad which can slide across a gravel driveway without taking much damage to the screen.
Support didn’t do much to remedy the situation. When I asked if there was a coupon code for the (essential) acrylic screen protector ($29.99), I was offered free UPS ground shipping, worth $6.
According to The Daily What, this was NBC’s response to criticism for not live streaming the Olympic opening ceremonies:
…they are complex entertainment spectacles that do not translate well online because they require context
Followed shortly by this reasoning for why they cut the ceremonies’ tribute to victims of terrorism:
Our programming is tailored for the U.S. audience. It’s a tribute to [producer] Danny Boyle that [the opening ceremonies] required so little editing.
To sum that up, NBC is saying that “we didn’t stream the opening ceremonies live because we had to provide context with our mad broadcasting skills, but it was so good that we didn’t have to do much in post”.
Spurred by the social awakening we’re experiencing around the world, “Voice of Art” follows artists as they execute their own brand of activism by shining a light on their chosen social issue. Through carefully crafted events (concert, exhibition, demonstration), these artists execute awareness campaigns to engage viewers in a global dialogue. Directed by ZS Grant.
This is what I was doing on that roof, a couple months ago. The full intro is crazy.
The show I’m making is for this guy’s YouTube channel. It’s part of YouTube’s big “let’s put money into making some good content” push, so it won’t be entirely shitty. Check out the show lineup. I swear to god, I didn’t pick out the thumbnail they used for us.
Also, judging by this video, I can go back into episodes 1 and 2 and unbeep all the censor beeps. That’ll be fun!
