Post Production

Marc Drake, our editor-at-large, is bringing the various shots from principle photography for A FORK IN THE ROAD to life. Couple his 10-years-plus accumulated skills and talent with the music from JILL JACK for the soundtrack and we should be good to go...

Thanks, again, to all of our actors and extras for making the production days moments to remember.

Technology's Triumphs and Tribulations

We will be rescheduling our final day of principal photography for next Monday, June 11th at the Northside Grill in Ann Arbor, due to a technological glich we experienced today with the Panasonic HD Digital Harddrive.

In short, it froze.

There are many great advantages to shooting in HD, as opposed to film -- it's cheaper, many times faster and more efficient -- EXCEPT for in cases when the software goes haywire.

"Should have had a back-up." Ahhhhhh, yes. Right. The old "be prepared for everything" or "combat conditions" point. Well taken.

But at $1200 for a hard drive and $75 per p-2 card, the back-ups can become huge financial hick-ups as well.

Maybe film "ain't" so expensive afterall!

In any case, another great saying goes, "when you fall off the horse, you get back on."

I like that quote the best.

See you on Monday, June 11th!
