I've always been an ambassador of technologies that "even the playing field" so to speak. Apple has done this once again with the creation of Final Cut Studio 2. For those that are not in the film industry it's hard to explain that a lot of times creativity is strangled by the budget of a music video, commercial, or film. With Final Cut Studio 2, the potential to create high-end looking content on a tight budget is amazing. The integration with RED Digital Cinema, which us digital film enthusiasts have been looking forward to, is seamless.
I had a chance to check out RED at NAB New York and speak with one of its creators, Ted Schilowitz, and it's really going to change production in ways I can't even imagine. Thank you to the people that are really revolutionizing the art and craft of filmmaking.
