« Squirt of Dopamine »

On this Episode of That Post Show, we are proud to have Mike J. Nichols, Paul Zadie and the amazing Steve Cohen on the show. We discuss the skills, other than editing, required to be an Editor. We talk about software, hollywood and too many other topics to list.

This show was edited on Adobe Audition CS 5.5 -- because Maggie McFee and John Foster said they loved Adobe Audition and I believed them. You be the judge of it's quality of sound.

Think you can write a theme song? Give it a try. If we use it, you could win cool stuff (like an Amazon Kindle).

Show Notes

You should go listen to Ruining it for Everyone right now.

Paul likes the Thinktank Backpack. I looked at the Shoulder Bag and it looks great for camera gear. I've always loved the STM Messenger and -- of course Timbuk2.

Norman wrote The Lean Forward Moment and it's even on the Kindle. Of course, so is Avid Agility which is a must-own.

We also mention the Go Pro 1080p camera, which is under $200 on Amazon.

There are no other show notes, other than this: I call crime procedurals "Semen in the Ketchup" shows, because my friend John D calls them that.
