Steve Miller, not that one, is a long time friend and fellow editor. Although we kid each other all the time because of our choice of tools we prefer to use, I have the utmost respect for Steve’s take on the technology we use on a day to day basis. In this episode we’ll discuss the “State of the Mac” as well as, laptops, desktops, mice, and even eGPU boxes.

We’ll also discuss his sit down interview with Randy Ubilos, the creator and mind behind Premiere 1.0 and Final Cut Pro, iMovie 08, Aperture, iMovie iOS, FCPX and more.

3 years in the making… have you ever worked on ONE project that long? Bokeh is what Geoffrey Orthwein calls “Lo Fi Sci-Fi Fi”… its a science fiction story that doesn’t have lasers and space ships in it. Its mostly about a relationship and what happens in the face of adversity. It was also all cut in FCPX and in this episode we’ll hear about the pros and cons of using this software on a feature length project.
