THE VALUE OF INTERNSHIPS
Published: June 1, 2007

I still remember my parents “strongly suggesting” that I get an internship while in college. “It’s a foot in the door,” they said. What back then seemed like a whole lot of chops-busting was actually sage advice. Internships are big in this industry and a win-win for all involved.

RED SAYS 4K CAMERA CLOSE TO SHIPPING
Published: April 17, 2007

LAS VEGAS - Okay, I think we can all agree that Red Digital Cinema is pretty good at marketing themselves. With no actual shipping product, they became one of the most talked about companies at NAB last year when they showed up with a red curtain, non-working proto bodies and an idea: an affordable digital camera that records 4K images. Industry pros (about 1,200 of them) literally bought into it, plunking down $1,000 to reserve a future, working model. And those early reservation holders will most likely have the camera of their dreams in hand shortly.

THE DIGITAL FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH
Published: March 2, 2007

So the other night, I'm watching TV, and a familiar actress appears in front of me. I know her voice, but I can't place the face. The words she's speaking are sad but her face is in this odd limbo between a smirk and a grimace. Am I supposed to be sad?

"Ghost Rider was always my favorite character; he was the coolest looking because he was part monster movie, part superhero and part Evil Knievel.
