I'd be far more interested in learning how they can run courses that include the Scarlett(sic) and Epic, cameras that have not even been released yet.
Still, that won't stop the Fanboys I guess :rolleyes:
They don't mention how much it costs, not a good sign.
Wonder if this has been approved/authorized by RED....

I should run my own courses. At least the food would be good, and you'd probably learn just as much.


Meanwhile Jim's skulking around in "Asia". Wonder what diabolical scheme he's up to now :P

I need a good laugh now and again, if I was in LA at the time, I'd probably go. Modern films just don't have the fantasy element like the marketing of red. :lol:

Maybe he's in Japan begging Dalsa to sell him a better CCD? or sucking up to Sony?

That would require some rather loud begging, as they're located in Eastern Canada. ;-)

Did you take my granddad's advice and take a shot of whiskey and a lemon drop to get rid of the flu?

Not that I agree or like the critics but Variety absolutely slammed 2012. There was so much SFX and green screen shots even Lucas went 'Enough'. :ph34r:

Yes but they're doing a dog and pony show in Japan at the moment. I suspect JJ is lurking around there somewhere with some marketing department dummies.

A gulp of straight brandy or vodkka was the only thing that would quieten down the nagging cough in the middle of the night but it didn't cure anything. (I don't like spirits in any form so it was a toss up which was worse; the cough or searing my throat in the middle of the night with booze).

As for 2012, I was referring to the following "brilliant" plot device:
They barely managed to escape the now almost totally torched US in a Russian Cargo Plane, and they hope to fly to where the Arks are being built in Tibet, with a refueling stop in Hawaii.
But: OH NO! Hawaii is now just a boiling mass of lava!
How EVER will we escape from this predicament?
Nope, looks like there's nothing for it but to put on life vests and ditch into the Pacific-
But wait! No!! It's OK!
By an amazing stroke of luck, Tibet has just moved 7,000 miles to the East, so we won't need to re-fuel after all! And even more fortunately, it managed to do this without so much as a single lava-gouting crack in the Earth's crust under the Himalayas, so all the snow is still there for us to safely crash-land on in a Bentley from the Russian Billionaire's car collection in the cargo hold. (Yes a Bentley, don't ask.)
