Goodmorning from Amsterdam! Blogging from the balcony of our canal 'pied a terre'.
Still no update on the N2MP3 direct to mp3 recording software, I'm a bit pissed that they haven't released an update for OSX 10.2 or even make mention on their site that the software won't work with the Jaguar upgrade. I'll give 'em a little more slack, but won't forget they happily took my $59.95 already.
I've tried some dutch audioblogging, with approximately the same results as here on the blog, everyone likes the idea, but probably wouldn't do it themselves. But most comments are positive, so I'm going to continue to see where this leads us. Nice to have Harold commenting back in audio!
Last night Patricia and I watched a self-made documentary Mick Jagger did about himself, friends and family during the post-production period of his movie Enigma. It was completely shot on DV. Good editing, but no special effects, which leads me to believe that it was probably edited on a Media100, or perhaps even in Final Cut Pro.
It definitely inspired me to think about this form of documentary. I'm confident the docu wouldn't have felt as intimate had there been a full camera crew running around all the time. Most impotant part is definitely sound. Mick was wearing a wireless microphone, which deminishes the 'amateur' vibe of the pro-sumer handheld to almost professional proportions. Having Mick man the cam himself throws you yet into another dimension alltogether. It was definitely a "yeah, I can do that" moment :)
