Editor's Letter: The benefits of previs
Published: March 5, 2012

We could all do with a little more planning in our lives, right? Looking at something from multiple angles and picking the best path to where we want to be. Post pros specializing in previsualization know better than most how much this process can help in the bigger scheme of things.
This month, we take a look at the process and talk to some experts (page 16). We also reached out to others who don’t necessarily specialize in the previs, but do reap the rewards.

Editor's Letter: New Year's resolutions
Published: December 29, 2011

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season, and while you are about to dig into 2012, I wanted to send you very hearty New Year’s wishes from everyone here at Post Magazine. As I have been known to do over the years, I will use this space to highlight some New Year’s resolutions from those around the industry.
And I will kick it off with my own. I once again resolve to eat less, take more vitamins and mentally train for the New York City Marathon — this is my year! I also intend to judge people less, starting now. This goes out to the lady who I saw merging onto the highway holding a cell phone in one hand and cigarette in the other and, I can only imagine, steering with her knee caps. The old Randi might have cursed you under her breath, but the new 2012 Randi says, “Kudos, talented lady. Kudos.” Oh, and “please don’t kill anyone.”
