Fun Summer Opportunity!

Hey folks, hope you are having a great summer! A former student of mine, Steve McBride, is doing a Q&A session with the Rochester Movie Makers group this Thursday (2 days from now). If you remember, I spoke of him often in my class – he has worked on several big productions, including Netflix’s The Getdown, Amazon’s The Tick, and almost every Jeff Nichols movie.

Anyway, the meeting is from 6-8pm at 21 Gorham St. (RCTV – Rochester Community Media Center). He has asked me to go (I think I will), and he also thinks it might be good for some of my students to attend. I really have no idea what to expect from this, but I think it really could be informative for some of you who might be thinking of going into this kind of field in the future!

Here is a link to the event on their website:


Penfield alumni Steve McBride will be speaking at the Rochester Film Community Center for the Rochester Association for the Film Arts and Sciences.

This video goes over how you can get started with your green screen project in Adobe After Effects. Remember, this is only one of a couple different ways that you can get started. I’ll post another video on how you can start using Adobe Premiere and the Adobe Dynamic Link.


New Project – Green Screen Project

Now that we have finished our first project,we are moving into a short, fun project. Below is linked a PDF to the assignment sheet. I’ll post demo videos as I upload them.



Welcome to the Digital Video Class blog.  This blog will be where I will be posting handout, assignment information, as well as recordings of any demonstrations that I do in class.  It will be a very important resource for you during the class, and you will want to visit regularly.

On the right, you will see a link that says “Subscribe to This Blog.”   I want you to enter your email address so that the blog will automatically send you a notification whenever something important is posted.  Don’t worry too much – it won’t be emailing you every day.

Once you enter your email address on that page, then go to your email and find an email from my website (it may be in your junk mail folder), and in that email there will be a link.  Click on that link to confirm the subscription.  This is basically just verifying that you are a real person, not a spam program.
