I’ve been in the midst of a big project at work which involves about 850 kids and 750 adults. All week we’ve been turning out photos, videos, and social media updates. It’s been fun and exhausting. My next hurdle is taking the whole week and distilling it down to a 90-second highlight reel. Wish me luck.
And now. . . The Good Stuff
Sir Don McCullin In Kolkata
I’ve been a fan of Don McCullin’s work for a long time. It’s inspiring to see a man at his age still producing and creating work that gets him excited. Despite this video being basically an ad for Canon gear I still loved watching it.

Premiere Pro Tip of the Week
I’ve been on a tight deadline this week cutting the aforementioned highlight reel as footage is coming in. There’s a lot of footage. I found that once I placed a clip in a sequence somewhere sometimes I often would want to go back and find that clip in the project folder. I was doing this numerous times during each edit session. I got tired of Right-Clicking the clip in the sequence to activate the drop-down menu to find the “Reveal in Project”. So I went in and created a Keyboard Shortcut for it. For me, I just made it “Option+R”
Ok, that’s it for me this week. Time to put the equipment away.
