First things first, you must show up

Posted April 25th, 2007 in General by Jeff O'Hara

In order to accomplish anything in life, complete a task, etc… You must show up!!! Even with a simple task such as reading this mundane extremely exciting blog post, you showed up. The task or event doesn’t have to be monumental. Think about the next thing you do, accomplish, or go to. Think about half the battle was just being there. Are you going to show up for that next big idea you have, or are you going to miss your appointment? Remember this, if you planned on showing up and you didn’t, you have failed.  Don’t forget, you may have to show up every day.

Digital Work flows

Posted April 23rd, 2007 in General, video by Jeff O'Hara

Last night I had an extremely bad experience capturing video from my MiniDV Camcorder. During the capture my heart dropped as my video camera proceeded to eat my tape. After this occurence I wiped my eyes dry and started to think about how currently the video work flows are and how we can enhance them so we can 1. speed them up and 2. make them a little more crash proof. In the video space Hard Drive camcorders are starting to become more prevalent.

Using a Hard Drive based camcorder would have eliminated my tape from getting eaten and would have also allowed me to transfer the video much quicker to my computer than I would have by capturing a 1 hour MiniDV tape.

It takes 1 hour to capture 1 hour of footage on tape when it only takes a few minutes to transfer video from a Hard Drive based device. Simple Video workflow solutions would cut production time immensely and allow me to concentrate more fully on editing and actually getting a product out.

Changing your work flow can be applied to any aspect of your life. Be creative, how can you manage your work flows to increase your productivity. Is it a simple process change or a Technological advance or both. Be creative, alter your work flows, be more productive, get more done. Post a work flow hack in the comments.
