Hey you guys....I know that sounds like Fat Albert calling out, but seriously, any of you guys use Motion? I just picked it up to work with. This weekend I finished editing out 3 episodes of this new show and am going to use Motion to create a new intro for the 4th episode. I love the real time work aspect of it. It should be fun. I've been dying to get it and finally kicked down and picked it up an hour ago.

Yeah, I am not much for the templates on things. I will use it to create original stuff. I'll definitely give a report. I'm watching some of the tutorial stuff now. It looks pretty amazing though for motion graphics and behaviors.

"Interesting....as cheesy as some of those templates they have are I know a client of mine that loves them." I know what you mean. I show they to people and they love them. Though I do like some of the water drops. Adding some colour, softs lights etc, people love it. Having behaviours like Throw etc, are quick to use and nice to have.

I'm telling you, this program is a lot of fun to use. I've done some pretty nice looking stuff with it already. I haven't used any of the templates. I actually haven't looked at them other than what someone showed me. I'll dig into them tomorrow. I picked up the Apple Pro Training Series book with DVD tonight. I'll blast through this this coming week. I'll be in Cali for 2 days on a shoot but should still be able to finish it.

My fun with motion graphics is using the "far, far a way, in a galaxy..." motif in iMovie. Lynn, when is your boxing documentary coming out? Are you going to share this on Amazon?

dogbowl...Shooting will wrap up at the end of February with on last shot on March 8th. I am estimating going into a 2 month edit then it's off to the festivals. It has been going great. I was in Detroit 2 days ago shooting Emanuel Stewart at his home. It was great. Tommy Hearns and his son were there as well as a few other fighters. I'll be back in Detroit in another 2 weeks to catch him and a few others. Over the next 3 weeks, I will be in like 6 states filming and possibly out of the country. Once it is done, I will definitely be giving some more info on here about it. I can't even start to tell you how amazing this process has been. If you were ever at my place, you would know that I am the hugest boxing fan and have a pretty cool collection of autographed photos and gloves. Getting to meet guys that I loved watching fight since childhood was amazing but having them in my film is beyond words. Thanks for asking about it. It isn't just a documentary, it is a passion being played out on DV.

LEMon...rather than get into the specifics you can always email or call me. In the basic sense, it was though showing a rough 8 minute cut of raw footage to the right person. From there it all came together.

LEMon...oh and thanks...it is actually really amazing. I was in a meeting today with a group of people that my next film is focusing on. It is in the boxing arena as well. A different focus though. This story will be freakin' great too!
