Episode 35: The Templatorization of “Creativity”

The trend toward basing creative endeavors on templates has been a trend for many years, culminating in Hollywood’s use of its history as templates for its current production.

Whether this is a good or bad thing depends on whether you value your personal creativity, or you’re pushing a budget to get a project finished.

Thanks to Curtis Fritsch for editing the show and making us sound intelligent.

Episode 34: Transmedia

In this show Terence and Philip tackle Transmedia, the successor to “multi-media”. Transmedia is the extension of a program to more ways for the audience to interact with the program, story and characters. Is Transmedia the future of television?

Thanks to Alpha Dogs intern Sean Yap for editing the show and making us sound intelligent.

Episode 32: Final Cut Pro X, and the response, a month later

In this episode Terence and Philip discuss how the postproduction landscape has changed a month after Final Cut Pro X was revealed. How has the competition responded and how has the Final Cut Pro community has reacted. Lots of discussion on the launch and subsequent response to Final Cut Pro X, touching on every aspect of the release.

Why is there an emotional connection with creatives and their tools? Where do Final Cut Pro 7 users go? Who is really focused on NLEs in professional postproduction? Oh, and yes, Philip has new software for Final Cut Pro X (inspired by Terry in part).

Many thanks to Isai Espinoza for editing the show again and making us sound smart.

Episode 27: Interns, Internships and Getting Started

In this episode Terence and Philip are joined by Alpha Dogs’ employee Isai Espinoza in a discussion about the value of Internships to both the employer and the intern, how to get the best out of an internship, and what’s in it for the employer. In typical fashion, this quickly leads to a discussion about breaking into the business, and what it takes to make it.

Episode 26: Is cloud editing the future of editing?

Is the cloud the future of editing: with a facility cloud or a remote cloud? How will the tape shortage change delivery into the cloud? How does cloud editing work? Will the cloud be suitable for archive? Will the cloud lead to outsourcing?

(Recorded before Apple’s NAB Final Cut Pro X preview was announced to be at the Supermeet.)
