I Got the Greenlight

Posted on July 10, 2007

I had my meeting with the Dean. I don’t think it could have gone better.

“I’d like to take the footage that didn’t make it into the documentary and turn it into podcasts.”

“You know, I’m feeling in a real experimental mood. The school is trying to do all sorts of new distribution methods and this was one of our ideas, so I’m giving you a yes.”

It’s now back to editing, though this time I’m doing it at home with Adobe Premiere. I have nothing against Final Cut (unlike Avid), but my main computer is a PC and Premiere and I have been pals for a long time. Time to welcome back the late nights.
