My Grandfather on YouTube

I had a good ol’ time taping an interview with my grandfather Ben Klein on his 93rd birthday.

I think this one is my fovorite, but here is the whole playlist:

Steenbeck is Alive and Kicking

Doing some research for my undergrad class, and I came across Steenbeck’s website.

They are still making and repairing film editing machines . . .

Sneaker Net 2007

In the book, we talk about the Sneaker Net concept quite a bit: using a FireWire drive to physically move media from system to system.

We make the point that “we still use this method all the time,” and even as Xsan shared storage becomes more common, the sneaker net still seems as popular as ever.

This week, I started new media archive drive for two clients, and we are preparing protable drives for each of my 48 undergraduates to use for their editing all semester.

At the same time, have been doing some training  with Channel 2 in Baltimore who are switching (get this) from linear editing to an FCP Xsan environment.

So I guess my point is that the new does not eliminate the old in many cases, you just have more people doing their thing in different ways.
