cost of hard drives going up

I read in another forum that the cost of digital storage is rising because of the floods in Thailand.  Most retailers have already begun raising the price of hard drives, and prices may go as high as twice or tripled to what they once were. So, if you're on the fence about buying extra hard drives, now is a good time to buy.See More

Case studies needed for legal case

From Marj Sarifina, a member of the Board of Directors of the International Documentary Association In 2008, we successfully won an exemption to the Digital Millenium Copyright Act to allow documentary filmmakers to rip material that they are fully allowed to use under Fair Use from DVDs. The DMCA made it a criminal offense to actually break the DVD encryption to access the material that we were within our rights to use. It was a long process, but we finally succeeded in securing a 3 year…See More

Have your heard the one about...?

Posted on August 12, 2010 at 11:45pm 1 Comment

So this is like one of those good news, bad news jokes:



I find out my film, "A Puppet Intervention," won second place for Documentaries at the Indy Gathering in Cleveland. Cool!



I find out that there was only one person in the audience. Damn.



That one person writes me, and says he loved the film. His name is Harry Oxnard, and he wants to give me $50,000 for distro rights. Just kidding. But he does do a podcast, "LA Podshow": (… Continue

scary news from NC

Posted on July 11, 2010 at 1:46am 10 Comments

I'm not sure what kind of things we should be posting, but I came back from vacation to find that a reporter from NC's PBS station had 200 hours of tape she shot for a documentary on a corporate polluter subpoenaed by our legislature. They watched a rough cut of her documentary (that the station is distancing itself from) in Senate Chambers before it aired.



What's worse, is that because UNC-TV is considered a state agency (who knew? They're governed by the Board of Governors which runs… Continue

Just thought I'd let you know that Matt Burrows has the best excuse for being late to join us on this network:

"My wife was ordered into bed rest by her doctor two weeks ago and then we had our baby 2 days early -- he was supposed to be born today (July 26) but we had a bit of an emergency Friday night and he was born Saturday morning. We get discharged tomorrow so hopefully I'll be able to get myself up on the site tomorrow night or Wednesday night."

I thought you might like to know and send congrats! It's mburrows@scetv.org -- until he has a free minute...
