I will be speaking at the Broadcast India Show on Tapeless Production Friday from 1-2pm. I will post the location when I arrive in Mumbai on Tuesday evening.
I will be around the Aja stand during the show as usual, if you see me be sure to mention that you are a friend on Creative Cow.
there is one thing to remember if you are having issues installing the iOS update on your iPhone or iPad.
YOU MUST LOGIN to iTunes after updating the iTunes App to 10.5 and before you update your devices!
Otherwise the iOS will reject installing the update because it cannot guarantee that your device is verified with that account.
There is now a truly creative fuel to use when you no longer are sure of your project or future in the film and TV industry.
Now you have "Bay in a Can" to increase your creativity and T&A levels in all your current and future projects.
A number of people have contacted me asking about Steve Jobs, sadly I was only ever in his presence one time and in all honesty he was not interested, but I have always thought it fitting as I was talking to John Sculley at the time and it was immediately after he came back to Apple in '97.
It did not change my view of the company, I have been a Mac user from the very beginning, I bought the very first one, having gotten a chance to see one up close in my Photostudio as I was shooting it while doing Advertising for a local computer store, so I guess that makes me an apple fanboy, the cult of mac as it is called.
I have had more Apple computers than I care to count, from the beginning I have owned almost every model of laptop and all but the current Imac. I go thru phones like water (not because of water) so I have owned every model of iPhone and both iPads, the benefit is that my wife has some of the best "hand-me-downs" possible.
I Choose to use a Mac because they make my life easier, more creative, less constrained.
That was what Steve was talking about in this speach about "Think Different"
and I like most of the rest of you I would not be here if it were not for his visions regarding computing and communicating.
Very few of us would know each other or our shared experiences here if Steve had not decided that he needed to change the Music and Video industries as much as he shook up the computer industry.
Yes, true visionaries are always missed and we just lost the one for our generation, as no one has changed our future more.

If you are like me, you carry your iPad onset for everything, from camera and 3D rig manuals, ordering lunch, reading the script to using the damn thing as a slate when needed, and for the last usage the people over at Pomfort had come up with one of the coolest ideas,(though kind of expensive) but here it is, the iPad Slate.

This week I have been working to get back in the stream of things after nearly a month on the road and with the traffic my last blog post is getting I thought I would end the week on something a slightly less controversial.
I am one of 3 people teaching a one day Arri Alexa Workflow Class as part of the Chicago South Asian Film Festival in association with Arri USA and Fletcher Camera and Lens, Chicago.
We start with the Red Carpet Premier tonight at the Chicago Cultural Center with Rang Rasiya.
As part of the Chicago South Asian Film Festival, I am one of the princeple speakers at an extended Arri Alexa Training session to be held this Sunday Oct 2nd from 2pm- 6pm.

Yeah, me again. There is alot happening in the industry right now, here is an interview with MacVideo's Rick Young that I did at IBC.
