News posts from 2003 Q3

Last week Adobe acquired Cool Edit Pro, a popular multi-track sound editing program, from Syntrillium.

It's clear that Adobe needed an audio application to round out its video suite.

For now, Cool Edit Pro will continue to be available as a standalone product. I could not find any information to suggest that Adobe might integrate the audio technology directly into Premiere.

I was excited by this when I first heard of it...but CEP seems to be a music creation app like Acid Music..another app that is a great idea but for me floundered on my lack of musical creativity/interest.

Of far greater interest would be something with more powerful audio manipulation, such as sound forge

The press releases seemed careful to point out that Adobe had acquired technology as opposed to products and equally careful to point out that Cool Edit Pro would not vanish.

We thus don't know yet how Adobe will use the technology. Loops are obviously important for video production, but Adobe doesn't have any audio stuff at all. A Sound Forge-like product could emerge, or audio could get a big improvement within Premiere.

I could be telling tales out of turn, but my wife works for Adobe and says they will be doing both: a stand alone audio editing product and boost to audio editing within Premiere. She was talking about brininging home a beta copy to check out.

Just interesting blurb about cameras with 2.5" CCD (yes, CCD of size of flip-out LCD screen!), super-resolution HDTV, mobile TV broadcasting and more.

DP needed for 2-month shoot in Thailand

Hey everyone,

I can't vouch for this information since I know nothing about the person posting it or the production itself. I just thought some of you might be interested in checking it out for yourselves.
Quote:
I have a two month shoot in Thailand in August or September._ I'm
looking for a good camera operator. Will be using Sony 537 Beta SP
or maybe two Panasonic 24p cameras._ I need someone who can tough it
out for two months._ Start early and end late - just like any shoot
but you'll have to contend with lots of humidy and lots of bugs._
This is an indie shoot._

Producer takes care of airfare, food and lodging and fee for shoot._
Ability to edit on Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere a plus and can
negotiate for editing fee.

Please send demo reel ASAP to:

Steve Thao
P.O. Box 600249
St. Paul, MN 55106

or email mistyfilms@yahoo.com for more information. Did I say ASAP
if you're interested?

It's called Ultra Definition. This and 3D screens without special glasses is the next step after HD. Just as HD will catch up, there will be more profit in something new. $ are behind this all.

Monkeey Brains?

Only monkey brains on the menu over here are those carved from fat, drunk white guys doing drugs and buying hookers. Other than that, you're thinking of India.

But we do eat friend cockroaches and othere bugs.

Hi David,

No offense meant...hope none was taken. Thailand is THE best place for food, in my opinion. I could eat green curry chicken and pad thai (sp?) every day. India would be my second favorite place for food.

Any more info about the shoot you can share?

None was taken, just thought I'd add a laugh to things.

The shoot is me mapping out a company's operations all over Thailand and its relative benefits for potential customers

The Indian food here is great, just not enough of it and way more expensive than regular Thai food.

Peace,
David

ps; Thanks for the job info. I emailed him. We shall see what happens

Okey-doke,

When he gets back to you let us know the details. Even though I won't be trying for the job, I'm still curious about it.

Videographer killed in Iraq

...Also Saturday, a gunman shot and killed a young British journalist outside Iraq's Natural History Museum.

Richard Wild, a 24-year-old freelance videographer, was standing in a crowd in the midday sun when he was killed by a single, small-calibre bullet fired into his head at close range, said Michael Burke, an independent British TV producer in Baghdad.

Wild arrived in the country two weeks ago aiming to be a war correspondent, his co-workers said Sunday. Burke identified Wild's body at a hospital morgue. The assailant fled into the crowd and was not apprehended, he said.

Wild's death brings to 16 the number of journalists killed since the beginning of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq on March 20.

British journalist killed in Iraq
14.03PM BST, 6 Jul 2003
A British television journalist has been shot dead in the centre of Baghdad.

He has been named by colleagues as 24-year-old Richard Wild.

Mr Wild was a freelance journalist, who was hoping to become a war correspondent.

Mr Wild, a former soldier, had worked at ITN's London offices before heading out to Iraq.

ITN chief executive Stewart Purvis said: "We are shocked and saddened to hear of the reported death of Richard Wild.

"In the six months that Richard worked at ITN, he was regarded as a dedicated and popular member of the newsroom team, particularly as he tracked all the material coming into ITN during the Iraq war."

Wintesses said Mr Wild was shot outside Iraqi National Museum and his body was handed over to US troops.
