In a number of posts I've noticed there is a growing interest in advanced production techniques and gear. I invite both the seasoned pros and 'straight out of the box' novices to participate and certainly ask questions of how the 'hard stuff' gets done. The idea of this post is to get beyond basic video questions and a more into how the novice content producer transitions into the professional arena. To be clear, you are a pro when you are making a living doing this kind of work. For the professional, knowlege and skill give the power to create content that wins contracts and keeps clients coming back. Now there is no reason that amature, novice and intermediate content producers won't be able to apply much of the info to come to their own endeavors at their own level. You'll just have to 'think smaller and much cheaper' to do so!
So to start this thread off, I offer this video discussion of the 'Alpha Dog's' Editor's symposium on 'Digital Storage'.
