FINALLY. It’s taken almost all week to get the system set up properly, but I started capturing and digitizing the tapes into Final Cut Pro. One thing after another: firewire 4- vs 6-pin, extensions for firewire hubs, replacement AC cable for the camera, the right hard drive (settled on the QPS M3, a truly portable 80Gb 7200rpm one).
In the mean time, there were taxes, joint brokerage account problems to deal with, and (happily) my wife’s birthday (now that she’s 16, I can openly call her my wife. And I won’t have to drive her everywhere anymore.). Jonah had an installation in a show that opened tonight, so I ran over to see it. Looks amazing. Reminds me (as does the footage I’m logging in) how attuned he is to light. Gotta get the next batch. seeya.
