I am working on some new features in the networking section. Trying to do this and work on the other areas of the website including content for the magazine and the production costs and sales is a good bit of work. If you can test things and find problem or ways to make it more user friendly please let me know. Truly Kim

I hope you're new year is off to a good start! I have started some major overhaul projects and looking to improve our websites over the next few months leading up to the NAB show we attend every year. We recently upgraded the networking section this post is in and have a few tweaks coming in the next few days that should make it even better.  I am hoping I can make it out to Hollywood this year for the ASC awards banquet and looking forward to many trade shows we attend each year.  This is and election year. I think people are a little more intense on election years. I was even thinking maybe there is a ways we could do some kind of contest that would include the election. Possibly some kind of documentary contest that might be bi partisan :)  No matter who it is that takes his place Obama will be stepping down and a new President will be seated January 2017. If you have any ideas for a contest that would be fair to all the candidates let me know.

I just got back from the IBC tradeshow in Amsterdam. It was a very productive trip and I found a lot of new companies that make lights, rigs, lenses and gear to add to our list or prospects for workshops, advertisers and contest sponsors.  Also, it was really beautiful and the people in Holland are nice. I posted some of the photos on my facebook page. - check it out.  http://www.facebook.com/KimEwardWelch

I hope everyone is well and have a great day. It is 6:41 AM according the the computer clock. It's been awhile since a posted a blog so I thought i would comment on the workshop yesterday with Peter Stein ASC http://www.studentfilmmakers.com/workshops/Peter-Stein-ASC-Lighting-to-Create-a-Mood-March-2011.html We had two wonderful sponsors. This first - NILA http://nila.tv/ makers of a powerful LED lighting systems that significantly cuts electricity usage and reduced heat in digital video, live events, concerts, government video, houses of worship, still photography, and more. Nila is the environmentally friendly answer any where you need lots of light! The second is http://www.scheimpflug.net/ Scheimpflug is more than just a rental house specializing in digital, production and lighting equipment. These guys provided lighting fast service with a staff of dedicated and experienced professionals. Digital Techs, who are also capable of video capture, have worked in the most extreme conditions all over the planet - 45 countries and counting. The FLUG recently acquired RGH, an iconic company in the commercial photo industry for 25 years. This gives FLUG a huge inventory of grip, generators, Kino’s, HMI, and tungsten lights. RGH also gives FLUG the ability to provide electrical and production support with a large fleet of grip trucks, generator trucks, and even a production truck. I suggest that you give these guys a call for for your rental needs.

I am watching Heroes on my computer screen through the downloads you can get on NetFlix.com. I was just thinking about why this series works and why other TV shows work. I don't think there is one thing that does it. I think it is like what Ed Luter my Professors for "Writing about movies" said. He said it is more like a chemistry and people working together well. It is a combination of shooting, acting, writing, editing and so on that makes a great story and keeps us following along with it.

I know some really great books that would make great movies but i am always thinking that if i tell someone they might tell someone and then someone else will make the movie without involving me!
