As a beginner, should I use Final Cut Pro (10.3) or the Adobe Premiere?

in reply to Aplam:

spend an hour or four with each of them and see which gel's better for you. If you read enough stuff you'll find too many people are religiously stuck on one of the other and rubbish the one they don't use, but I say go with what works for your personal style.

Also have a look at blackmagic design's DaVinci Resolve - thats a really powerful editor and free (costs for some real top end features but you won't need that for 48s)

Music

I use this outfit a lot http://hellothematic.com

heaps of great stuff and you don't end up with the more unscrupulous third parties putting bogus rights claims on your video later, because of the free-license model they use.

So in regards to rule 9 - you can't be a team leader AND run for government in Australia at the same time right?

Dear Ant Timpson

in reply to Ant Timpson:

I do ;)

Stuff on face book is ok for "right now" but people are starting to move back to forums for things that stick around. FB is also just one timeline, not organised topic.

Ok ...organised is a relative term ;)

Dear Ant Timpson

in reply to IctusMortem:

now of course i'd just run the drone up :D

The point of it all is that it really doesn't matter if people are paid or not - I don't think it's made any major difference to the chance of winning anyway.

If you start segregating then you start arguing over "was he paid or just reimbursed" and "whats the difference between paying a caterer to bring us food and paying for pizza delivery"

I run a film gear company, but my day job is for someone else. am I a pro or enthusiastic amateur. My actors had extra roles, maybe a line or two in rings, hobbit, GITS etc ... are they pro... where is the cut off point

I think that demonstrates the type of thing that becomes a nightmare for ant and crew to negotiate - hence dropping the 'no paid' rules

disclaimer: this is my own analysis - I'm not reading Ants mind. :D

in reply to Robstar Rapper:

easter would be ideal. Sure some people have that time away, but others would be more likely to be available and have the monday to recover etc

in reply to Captain Woodrow .F Call:

I'm happy with either, but would like to know sooner rather than later. people need to book leave ideally and work out when I need to save up for ;)

A lot of people these days have stuff booked up months in advanced - personal and work - so the more warning the better..
