Is there any chance you'll be doing Q&A screenings like you did with Brick... perhaps in the New York area?

I'd say there's a very very (very) good chance. Though I should warn you that in the time since I did them for Brick, I've gotten much dumber.

You know what would be really cool, although not Toronto related? Remember that time Nathan gave that cool presentation at the apple store about making the soundtrack? Wouldn't it be awesome if you came to the (cough*chicago*cough) mac store and had a presentation/q&a about editing on a mac? Jeffrey Nachmanoff, of Traiton and Day After Tomorrow fame, is doing something of this sort, you should totally come and one-up him.

Or you know, if you don't want to do a presentation, we could just hang out at the apple store and chat...

I hope to, but it would take some creative tapdancing... we actually had a sheetload of FCP problems during the cutting. Though to be fair, most (nearly all?) of them were probably due to our ramshackle set-up and work flow, which was improvised in a hotel basement in Montenegro.

Audience member: Mr. Johnson, can you comment on some of the influences that affected the outcome of the film, both stylistically and emotionally?
Rian: Me make movie! Movie good! YOU WATCH MOVIE!
Audience member: Wow, that totally answered my question!

But hey, that could be the best advice! More then likely, the folks you'll be speaking to won't be in fancy-pants editing bays, even a hotel basements might be pushing it. Aspiring film makers want to know all about improvising with your surroundings and working through the problems. Sure, the apple store might want nothing but praise for FCP, but I at least would love to hear what they were and how you solved them.

Speaking as someone who has to sit at an editing bay 12-13 hours a day (on average), I can honestly say that Final Cut is simply not suited for the trials and tribulations of a substantial workflow.

I loves me my Avid.

You mean you're not sitting on the floor in a blue room with a laptop in front of you? I feel so mislead.

Yes, but I don't wear the sandwich board much anymore, thanks to the expiration of the court order.

While we are offering disclaimers for our avatar pictures, I will go on the record saying I don't actually paint my face like the joker.

often.
