: You know I am busy when I am not posting,
So it's been almost a month since I last posted in the blog, sorry about that but really have been busier than normal.
So a couple of updates
Right after IBC I went directly to NYC and while checking into my hotel room found out that my corporate credit card number been absconded with and some one used it to buy 3800€ of petrol in Moscow, I voided the cards, but that saga will go on for a month or more.
Then I spent 3 days in Pasadena teaching cinematography and 3D, I had a great time, met some cool people and landed in LA on the day that a new record high temperature of 113* at LAX was recorded.
This past week I have been the student, taking the Element Technica Advanced 3D Rig Tech class. This was 5 days of hands-on with the complete functionality, maintenance and repair of Element Technica's Quasar broadcast and cinema 3D chassis. 3D is the next shiny new toy on my radar and I have a number of opportunities coming up to not only shoot more 3D (I am already working as a Stereographer) but also to offer up some customized stereoscopic training for my clients.
With the boom in broadcasting of 3D content I fully believe that 3D is here to stay and guys like me have a 2-3 year window until consumer grade tools reach the quality of the Panasonic 3DAG1 at 1/3 of he cost. For now I need professional tools that do not limit my creative license but allow me full access to the complete 3D environment,
