NAB fades into black

Well I made it through 4 days of walking and talking. I am so tired I could drop and not move for two days. Never thought standing with camera gear and talking to every stranger that walks by would be so tiring. This is a picture with Danny and his wife Shulimate at the DV TEC booth (which of course my spelling of Shulimate is way off I am sure, so sorry).

Sitting at the Aunties Annie Anne's pretzel store getting ready for a red eye flight back. Sorry about no updates, to tired to run around with the camera. I did have Nate Clarke tell me I made it on a podcast video clip walking in the background. I will post the link when I find it!

Didn't get to see much, but was impressed by Red, DV Multi Rig Pro (where I worked), final Cut Server, Adobe Premier Pro, Panasonic Cameras, people playing back hi-res footage from Macbook Pro Laptops at their booths, J-lab LCD Monitor and Red Rock Micro Matte Box.

Things not so impressive: Wedding shooters (sorry, I just call it as I see it), Japanese and Chinese companies at the show that don't speak english, short people (okay, I am tired and need someone to pick on), people in suits, 8 dollar cheeseburgers and people who have money to actually buy new equipment.

Thanks to Matt at Mcgee Digital for allowing a roommate to tag along (do you get the bill for the midgets?).

Fun time had by all. Now back to work that pays the bills!
