| The Terence and Philip Show
Everyone's talking about Avid's recent profit as though this indicates a big turnaround, yet don't forget that just back in November they had a lay off of 750 staff. I think it will be another couple of years before we really know what happened in the NLE market:

Bringing back the DVD | Sridhar M. Reddy | Blog
In his blog for his horror film Lilth, filmmkaer Reddy defends the extras on DVDs:
Watching a DVD with tons of special features is, for me, a huge treat. Maybe it’s because I’m a filmmaker and I love to learn about production and the magic of movie making. I love to know what goes into making a vision a reality - hence this blog. A lot of this blog wouldn’t be possible if I didn’t spend hours watching DVD features.

DIY Sony EX3 Shouldermount/ Protech st7 type | Vincent Slangen | CreativeCOW
Interesting DIY build rig to convert a Sony PMW-EX3 into a shoulder-mount camera:
After I decided with measurements the mount should have I bought some Aluminum 6mm thick. I cut the plates in halfway in order to bend them in the right shape. I am a lucky person that I have the skill and the equipment to weld the aluminum back together where it was cut. For people that do not please look at the internet en find out about Durafix for soldering aluminum is should do the job as well.
