On Tap for Sunday Oct 2nd - Arri Alexa Training in Chicago

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.

It's a filebased start to the Summer.

As I start the first week of the unoffical summer season, I am prediciting that tapeless or filebased workflows are going to be on everyone's radar this year. I start the season perfecting the filebased acquisition and workflow for a big sporting event that is starting this week in Miami.

I have been contacted by no less than 6 productions that are moving to filebased connectivity for the very first time, and in every instance, those productions are all moving in that way solely because of the Tsunami destroying the HDCamSR tape facility that has been the backbone format for episodic and theatrical production in the US.

A quiet note on workflow.
Handle your data is like water, if you do not define where it can travel and how fast to move it, it will go where ever it wants leaving a wake of devastation in it's path. If you plan properly the where, how and the way that data is handled, most of your problems will be minor.

Ignore those basic rules and the torrent of data both on the camera or in post it will dislodge your senses, disrupt your routines and devastate your project.
