I’m turning off twitter (mostly) for all of this week.
It’s a yearly ritual.
Because it’s time for the 2012 NAB show, a six day hardware bender that will leave most video-gear-aholics with a massive headache and a spotty memory of the previous days’ indulgence.
Being a registered gear-aholic myself, I know that if I want to get any work done, I have to turn off the constant stream of info about the newest 2.5K resolution video camera priced under $3K.
I had to make an exception, however, for the NAB Live stream with Philp Bloom because they happened to doing a critique of a video created by my friend and former boss Chris Weatherly. It also happened to be a video I helped produce. Despite my minimal involvement, when I saw Stephen Goldblatt on the set holding a microphone getting ready to critique a video piece created by a church, I’ll admit, I felt my stomach drop.
