Lotta updates coming soon.

Hey all
I know it's been slow on the updates tip. Just wanted to say hello to everyone and let you know that the reason for that is that there simply isn't much interesting to show. I don't want to show "rough cuts" of the chapters so far, because they may mislead the viewer as to the overall style of the film. 
But we will have some cool visuals to keep everyone excited...coming in the next few weeks. Dave Kessler is doing some pretty awesome Cinema 4D stuff, and we should have some great renders to show soon. 
And again..the film is going to be f***ing awesome. The story is going to thrill you and break your heart, then build it back together stronger. Really. I get tears as I edit sometimes. 

Hang in there.

NewTek and the Video Toaster

Hey everyone.

Zach here. Just got back from San Antonio, TX, where we interviewed Tim Jenison, the creator of the Video Toaster, and the current NewTek CEO, Jim Plant.

I told myself I was done doing interviews, but I couldn't turn this one down. Simply stated:

Tim Jenison is a Video God. And he played a huge role in creating the field of desktop video production.

And it all started on the Amiga.

Most of you all know about this, but in case you don't:

So yeah, both guys gave great interviews, we got coverage of their facilities and we also got access to some great archival imagery related to the Amiga and Video Toaster. I even got to drink a little whiskey and talk video and technology with Tim. He is just one hell of a fascinating guy.

This is a big deal. Really.

More to come. Thanks again for your support. The editing is still moving along well and the 3D modelers and musicians are hard at work too.

Hey everyone reading this here blog:

I see I haven't posted on here in a good while. There have been updates, but they have been going here:

and lots of them are on here:

Facebook is way more active if you want the latest.

Anyways, yeah, we are getting access to some great B-roll and a couple last interviews for the film. We are heading to NewTek, the inventors of the Video Toaster in a few days.

Wish us luck! More to come.

Alright folks, here's the deal. I'm working my ass off over here.

Me working with the Andy Finkel footage. 

Me at the new and improved home edit suite. Two edit systems now. 

Here's what's been happening! 

I've been able to get a good amount of editing done on the story cut, but I found that working a very demanding job was sucking away all my free time. And also, all my down time was wasted at work too: I could have been doing more editing during the day, but understandably, my boss wasn't keen on me editing my film at work.

So I did something I have been dreaming of doing forever.

I broke free and am doing my own production company full time.

Please check it out and tell your friends. We are open for business.

I got a great client already and am already making great videos for them...all out of my home office. And I've got WAY more time for the film! This is the spirit of the Amiga as I always saw it. Just doing it yourself, right?

I am reenergized and excited about the film like never before! My creativity is at a peak now!

So we will be on track. I promised story edit this fall. It'll be there in about 6 weeks. And yeah, finished film late next year.

Stay tuned everyone. Thanks again for the support.
