Soulful Freesia vocals over Soulpersona tracks.  Match made in heaven. And another great album.

20 year anniversary of Nas’ debut release “Illmatic”? The entire album remastered, along with a crap-load of classic remixes? Yessir.

I’ve had this movie for awhile. I just never really cared to watch it. Hope it’s decent

I enjoyed the four other films. I know it’s a one-track pony, but still enjoyable. This time a group of Latino kids from Oxnard, California fall ass-backwards into demon shenanigans. It seems this evil from hell attacks anyone around with a camera. PUT DOWN THE DAMN CAMERA!

24: Live Another Day
Jack Is Back May 5th, 2014

This has been one of those things you give up hope for, but somehow it happens. I hated Keifer’s “Touched” tv show because I didn’t like seeing Jack Bauer in a wimpy state. Make no mistake, Keifer Sutherland will ALWAYS be Jack Bauer on TV no matter what he does.

So me and Kitchen Rebel are going to re:watch the last season of 24 over again go get prepped for the May 5th premier of Season 9.

#iWant Blackmagic Pocket
Cinema Digital Film Camera

I currently use a Canon Rebel T2i to shoot corporate and music videos. It’s very serviceable for high quality video footage. And if you’re good with color correction in Final Cut Pro or some other editing software, then you’ve got what you need to make things happen. But still, there’s always that ‘next level’ you can move up to. I really want to start making a movies. Getting that ‘film’ look out of your video usually takes some tweaking when using a DSLR. They’re basically still image camera’s that happen to shoot video. Luckily there’s the Blackmagic Cinema line of cameras that are built to be digital film-friendly.

shoot-digital-film

I’ve had my eye on the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera. It’s basically a compact version of their awesome Blackmagic Cinema Camera. It has some limitations, of course. It’s now as versatile as a DSLR. It’s built for one thing. Shooting at 35mm, which means that any lens you use will be cropped to accommodate that style. But that’s easy to work around. It’s had adapters to use Canon lenses so you won’t have to start from scratch if you were using something like a Rebel or Mark III.

back-front

Seriously, all i need is this little camera shooting in flat color. Priced under $1000, it hits that sweet price spot for those who couldn’t afford getting at Mark III or similar full frame camera. Watch the selected video review for a good list of good and bad things about the Pocket Cinema.

New Mac App: Slugline
Scriptwriting Made Simple

by toddkelley on March 28, 2014

Play Video Hide Video

The one thing that’s always discouraged me from writing scripts is a) formatting for scriptwriting in applications like Word, or b) the learning curve in ‘standard’ writing apps.

Slugline is an incredible new app that moves menus and UI out of your way and just lets you write. Instead of selecting formatting from drop down menus, Slugline uses intelligence formatting to anticipate what you’re going to need.

inMBP_03_A2

All you do is type. If you create a SCENE HEADING and hit ‘return’, Slugline automatically knows to start you with an action line. Type a name in all CAPS and Slugline automatically formats it as a CHARACTER NAME and puts you immediately into DIALOG when you hit return.

This may see like a simple thing, but the little obstacles that Slugline moves out of your way allows you to keep the flow of your creativity going. If you’re a scriptwriter, you owe it to yourself to at least do the 14 day trial.

From Dusk Till Dawn Series Moving Along Nicely

I couldn’t see how Robert Rodriquez could stretch the movie ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ into ten hour-long episodes. But it’s moving along very well. Each episode seems to end on a major beat of the movie. Plus there are other story lines interwoven with the main plot. They’re really playing up the Mayan God angle too. I can’t wait to see where they play it.
