Worked out asses off today in room 1092 and finished our 1 minute trailer. Of course half way through we realized that it's not due until July 21st!! Thankfully that gives us time to make it even better!

Fixed the last scene it had a grey white bar on the left side. Also added a sound effect for my "Who would do such a thing?" to make it more real..

Week 5 went by pretty fast as most of the previous weeks have. Finished our Sound Scape for DMA155. Since mostly everyone should be finished theirs by now ours is a bank robbery with lots of gun fights and a smashing ending! In DMA144 Adrian played our video first, which I didn't want to happen but oh well.. The video has been done for over a week with transitions and music 🙂 I'm very glad we got perfect on it. Looked for prices of the Super Scupley today. Curry's has it listed for $18.95 per pound on their website. Michaels on the other hand didn't so I stopped by before heading to sq1 and its $21.99 for a pound. Damn expensive imo. Will probably find someone to in halfzies with me and I'll pick it up probably tomorrow when I'm out doing house calls (tech support). Friday will be fun filming begins on our final video. I have to dress up since I may have a roll to play 🙂 But mostly I will be doing the editing and such, which is where I feel the most comfortable. Earlier today the server where this is hosted was under some sort of attack, so since this blog is very precious to me I'm in the process of setting it up elsewhere. I have to setup rsync and some other stuff. But for now it works. To take a gander head on over to http://joem.biz. At the moment joem.biz is using the mysql from this server. Shortly I'll setup a script to empty the contents of wp-posts and re-import it all and cp the uploads directory in wp-content on a daily basis. It will be a day behind but it's better than nothing. Finished the SoundScape Project on Friday, after reading the instructions we noticed that there had to be intro / outro music. Thankfully the new Celldweller Songs for the Voices in my Head Vol. 2 Chapter 1 dropped the day before.. Have a listen 🙂
Updating the blog in a few minutes to wordpress 3 rc3, which was released last night while filming was taking place.. All done, now to do the same on the backup site.

I've been meaning to post this for a while now. Forgot to convert it last night, one of the first things I did when I got home tonight (before 8pm :D). [flv]http://joemittler.com/wp-media/shooting_and_digitizing_w_music_sm.flv[/flv]
Doing a wordpress upgrade to 3 rc2. Site will be offline for a couple moments.. As you can see the menu items still don't work. I'll use @nathanrice's method after supper. And I'll modify the css to get rid of this horrible font face. Menus fixed, it was a pebkac lol. Off to fix the css now. All done! Finally..
