Terence and Philip mainly focus on the cost of producing movies, but there are lots of tangents in between.
I’m working on a side project for my friend Cirina Catania who’s trying to get a series running called After Action Stories about what happens to servicemen once they return from service. The pilot stories have revolved around Furnishing Hope that we shot back in May. One interview edit has been on hold until we were able to shoot some B-roll of Furnishing Hope in action. (They transform an empty apartment or house into a home in 3 hours.)
For the first time ever in my life there was more b-roll than I could use. Between us, Cirina and I captured over 320 video shots and hundreds of stills. The footage spoke to me and called me to put it together into something that Furnishing Hope could use to attract sponsors. Then something odd happened.
Recorded after the announcement of the new Mac Pro this episode covers that, 3D and 4K. http://www.theterenceandphilipshow.com/?p=513
Correction: A couple of people have bought to our attention that the SSD in the MacBook Pro Retina and the MacBook Airs are in fact socketed and user replaceable.

Video Stories: Marketing’s Next Big Thing http://t.co/1m9kIp23
Neil Perry points to a trend for brands to produce human-scale stories as part of their marketing, and how successful this is becoming. Not surprising, really, as humans love stories. In fact, the lack of decent stories is what ails “Hollywood” today. (more…)
Disappointing 3DTV sales makes 4K the Next Big Thing http://t.co/N0xVEBfk
The problem is that these “big things” are not driven by consumer demand, but by the tool makers who need to keep selling more production gear, and – perhaps more importantly – more consumer equipment to get the hardware turnover faster. Given that the average TV sits in the corner for 10 years or so, something has to be “created” to induce consumers to want to buy the next “big thing”. (more…)
