Once again it was an example of the power of storytelling to open up opportunities.
Authenticity, for me, is doing what you promise, not “being who you are”.
Filmmaking may be the last vestige of 19th-century artisanal labor: hours and hours to capture what on screen will last just a few minutes.
The rest of the day ticked by slowly, in a way that was a reminder that filmmaking may be the last vestige of 19th-century artisanal labor: hours and hours to capture what on screen would last just a few minutes.

Stu Maschowitz, of DV Rebel fame, and The Orphanage (may she rest in peace) is a leading expert on the ups and downs of the post-production tool-chain. In a vent of frustration, Stu posted a chain of comments to Twitter, a top-ten of the 15 worst things our beloved post-production apps are bad at. There’s still no great way to summarize a Twitter conversation, so I’m posting it here. Pretty great for all you post-pro pixel lovers/haters out there.
- Give Final Cut Pro a pixel, it’ll screw up the gamma.
- Give Avid a pixel, it’ll screw up the 16-235 thing.
- Give Motion a pixel, and as long as you leave it at that you’re real time all the way baby!
- Give After Effects a pixel and it will color manage it “correctly,” i.e. matching none of your other apps.
- Give Flame a pixel. That will be $2,300 please.
- Give Premiere Pro a pixel. Oops, wait, project’s still loading
- Give Shake a pixel. And put the new Sugar Ray CD in your 6-disk changer while you’re at it.
- Give Commotion a pixel. On that beige Mac you keep in the back room running OS9 so you can still use version 3.1.
- Give Photoshop a pixel. No, no, not Brightness and Contrast! Idiot.
- Give Aperture a pixel. Then do basically nothing to it using Aperture’s built-in controls, just fire up one of your $300 Nik plug-ins.
- Give Toxik a pixel. Feel lonely?
- Give Fusion a pixel. Look, your desktop!
- Give Nuke a pixel. And, uh, now what.
- Give Lightroom a pixel. Double click it. It becomes full-screen. But somehow you’re still not in edit mode. Did you read the five rules?
- Give Apple Color a pixel. Good luck getting it back!
