New Old Camera

Thing is, I just bought a Canon EOS 6D to upgrade from my Canon EOS Rebel 760D. Why? The 6D is a 4 year old camera. The 760D is brand new!

Raid Array

Since I have delved back into video production it has really opened a can of worms in terms of gear. I thought that owning a recent Macintosh and Adobe Creative Cloud enabled me to churn out the viddy like Ed Wood on bennies. Boy was I wrong.

Turns out that HD video is very resource intensive!

Animation

Doing some animation lately. It is known as cloud animation or milk animation. It involves nothing very special in terms of gear, except a lateral mounting of your camera, so you can ‘look down’ on the subject.
