On another note, I didn't realize you were a writer which is pretty cool, and are a movie industry and cinematography writer which is even cooler. After checking out the Red Shark website, I was also pleasantly surprised to finally be able to put a face to your name after all the information, advice and help you have dispensed to me personally and to everyone else here since I joined the forum. Much oif that information has since proven to be invaluable particularly the tread on Adamo a while back which helped change my thinking on a few subjects. I just wanted to thank you for that.
Thanks James! That's nice to hear!
I've only kind of become a writer more recently. I had a spate of people telling me I should write. Sometimes even editors of online magazines but then going quiet on me when I took them up on it and offered to write something. I was a bit frustrated by it to be honest.
Then I met Phil Rhodes at BVE Expo 2012 and even he said I should take up writing, and it made me take it a bit more seriously as Phil obviously actually writes himself! It was still a while after that when I discovered Red Shark, and when I wrote to David (the editor) he was really supportive and enthusiastic.
I'm in the process of rebuilding my life and Red Shark is presently one of the best things in it!
I really think things are finally starting to turn back around for me again.
I really like Red Shark too because it has a very friendly and open style but it also has quite a high quality to it with people like Phil writing in depth articles on technical subjects (He has a great article on HDMI and 4K up there right now) as well as stuff like "Here is some really preety Alexa footage". I think it's a really good mix personally.
