The economy is making a comeback so the A-holes are coming out of the woodwork. Here's a new one.

End Of An Era
Mad River Post closed its doors a couple of weeks ago. I cried. Twenty years ago commercials were edited on film. Kem, Steenbeck, and Movieola were the systems used at top post houses of the day, and if you muttered the words offline video, you were talking about low end television shows or worse,...

I would bet that, like most people, you watch TV with the remote in your hand. And not because you're constantly changing the channel, but because you're riding the volume like it's a fader on a console. I feel your pain and I apologize. The typical blast that ensues at the commercial break is...

It's times like these when being psychic is a mixed blessing. Let me explain. You see, we run a hybrid media studio called Psychic Bunny , which we founded as a new kind of production company with an innovative business model. From 2004, we grew steadily. And then the financial meltdown happened...

Recent years have been an absolute cat and mouse game for advertising agency producers and production companies. What's important? What do we do? In five years? In 10? Is the sky falling, or is this a wonderful opportunity? In truth, the production side of things is more exciting than ever. But don...

One of the many fascinating things about :30 storytelling is that every project is a different experience with unique challenges. I recently collaborated with director Tim Damon of Damon Live Action on the production of 100,000 feet of running footage for national, regional and local spots that...
