Standing desks are all the rage these days. Especially since it has been determined by scientists and studies everywhere that sitting all day is as dangerous as smoking. Those studies fellow editors basically say that we are screwed. Unless you stand and edit. There are a ton of standing desks these days but it isn’t always an option to go out and buy one and replace an existing desk. That’s where the VARIDESK comes in.

Beyond the standing desk, beyond on the Herman Miller chair, there’s other things to sit on while working at your desk like an exercise ball. And beyond on exercise ball there’s also the ergoErgo. I got one of those for Christmas and added it to my arsenal of things on which to sit on while working.

A few years ago there was a spate of interest in chromatic aberration -- fixing footage containing the color fringing, but mostly creating it for motion graphics and VFX realism. At some point, questions on creating this effect must have reached a critical mass, and tools and tutorials popped up to help.

The good folks at Amazon dropped off a package the other day for a brand-new G-Technology G|DRIVE ev RaW “rugged” drive. I wanted to try one of these drives because as one who edits in several different locations I’m often shuttling media from one system to the other. I don’t carry around any padded foam case on a daily basis so usually these drives just go into a backpack and they get jostled around quite a bit. This new G-Tech series of drives looks to take the portable drive to another level with soft rubber bumpers and even special casings. I elected for the G|DRIVE ev RaW as I really don't need the drive to float.

If I may take a moment to engage in a bit of shameless self-promotion please indulge me! Once again I’m honored to be teaching/leading/presenting (and learning myself) a number of classes at this year’s Post|Production World Conference at the National Association of Broadcasters convention. This is always a highlight of my year as it gets me out of the editing suite and working outside of my comfort zone. More importantly it’s fun and I meet a lot of great people.
