I was definitely underwhelmed as far as anyone doing something really big on the Super Bowl.

I JUST COMPLETED MY first project in HDTV, and despite all of the technological limitations, there were definite advantages to be found in this new medium. (For anyone who has spent their career shooting negative only to view it in video resolution, it's a heck of a lot of fun to see your film...

YOUR SHOT: What's Next?
THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT a year that ends with a nine. Whether it's a birthday or the end of a decade, it's just a big deal, a signal of the end of one thing and the beginning of something else. There's trauma attached to turning 30 or 40 or 50 or whatever else we get to. So, in 1999, we start to...
