Year of the Horse – and the Chinese Translation

Just in time for Chinese New Year is the Chinese translation of my book, Cut by Cut: Editing Your Film or Video, Second Edition. Click here to buy it. Page for page it appears to be the same as the English version and my Chinese speaking friends have not complained about the translation yet – a good sign and emblematic of the Horse which is considered to embody kindness and good communications.

And, speaking of communications, I have been more of a horse’s rear end as far as regular communications with this blog. Other projects have been absorbing my time – mainly my history book – Chronicles of Old San Francisco with 29 chapters, each built around a specific mover and shaker, and seven walking tours – which is in editing and due out July 15.

In the meantime, I am paying to keep this site going because I believe its resources – free downloads, glossary, Cut of the Month feature, and categorized blogs along with my filmmaking books provide invaluable information and tools for filmmakers. So please check them out and feel free to contact me at any time.
