I’ve finally found some time to do a new video interview for Art Relish. It’s been a while.
I was happy to meet Jennifer Schwartz at her gallery and the work on the walls looks great. Ron Hughes, formerly of Composition Gallery, is going to bring a lot to his new role as gallery director at Schwartz.
Tech notes: Since my latest favorite video camera, the Kodak Zi8, doesn’t handle mixed lighting well/at all and has no white balance adjustment, I’m going to need to start bringing lights with me. If they could add some kind of manual WB setting that would be awesome, but I don’t really expect a whole lot from a $180 camera. The microphone input is a dream come true in itself. Today I’m expecting a new microphone to arrive and that should take care of our ambient noise issue to make sound even better. That’s what I’m excited about right now.
Final Cut is doing something wonky with my transitions, so I’ve had to cut them out mostly. Has anyone else seen … I don’t even know what to call them … frame skips(?) after adding any kind of transition? I’ve talked with a FC pro and he’s never seen it before. I could export a raw, full-quality file, re-import and that might solve the problem, but who has time for extra steps? So it’s always a learning experience.
Regardless, I’m happy to finally have a new interview up. Enjoy.
