SCOtutor on App Chat

NewImage Thanks to Karl over on “App Chat” on the British Tech Network for inviting me onto his podcast.

Karl is one of the new hosts over on the BTN and I’ve had chance to meet up with him several times at the London MUG.

His new show is an interview show with various developers introducing their iOS apps and giving some background on the development of their apps. I do own up on the interview to not being a proper developer and give due props to Simon Wolf (the actual developer) as well as Jamie Peak (the graphic designer).

So thanks again to Karl for the invite and I hope you enjoy the interview.

SCOtutor on MacVoices.TV

Macvoices 1My good friend Chuck Joiner invited me onto MacVoices.TV to discuss my foray into the world of Apps.

Instigated by the recent release of SCOtutor for iPhone on iOS, we discussed various topics including the reason for going down the App route and the impact on the weekly ScreenCastsOnline shows.

I also probably said to much about my future plans!

Hopefully Chuck has been able to work wonders on the editing front, as I was still suffering a bit from my recent cough, but I’m sure he will have cut all that out.

Thanks to Chuck for extending the invitation and I hope you enjoy it.

Fresh Box TV

One of the things that never ceases to amaze me is the global reach of Internet TV and just how easy it is to become your own publisher on the Internet.

The success of ScreenCastsOnline was seeded by having access to powerful, yet relatively inexpensive, tools to create and edit the show. In addition, the availability of low cost distribution provided by such services as Libsyn, and the simplicity of downloading using media players such as iTunes, all contributed to making ScreenCastsOnline an international success and has kept me in gainful employment for the last five years.

However, it’s rare that I get the chance to contribute to the local community and in many ways, the success of the show is fairly invisible to my home City of Liverpool.

That’s why I was delighted a few weeks ago to be approached by Kris McDonald, one of the masterminds behind Fresh Box TV, to film an interview all about ScreenCastsOnline.

Fresh Box TV is a local initiative aimed at getting younger people in the City interested in video production.

The team have shot a number of video interviews with film makers, writers and producers but all mainly from the more mainstream background. I was asked to provide more of an insight on setting up an internet based venture and using the internet as a distribution mechanism.

It was great meeting Kris, Aaron (sorry for accelerating your desire for an iPad Aaron) and Greg at the Fresh Box TV studio, and they’ve done a great job in putting the video together. It’s now up on the website and you can check it out here.

I hope that the interview may give some of the kids some inspiration to go out and give it a go themselves and kudos to Fresh Box TV for creating such a great resource. 


New Interview on The Screening Room

Telestream (the developers of ScreenFlow) were kind enough to interview me for their blog – The Screening Room.

Of course, I was delighted but a little bit unsure as to if they’d still want me as I don’t use ScreenFlow exclusively. I do use it for all my video capture and for some assembly editing, but I still use Final Cut Pro to create the final version. I raised this as a potential issue to them.

To their credit, it wasn’t a problem and I received back the response:

That’s fine. My aim isn’t to promote ScreenFlow over all other products. I really want to show how everyday users are using the program, so that people can maybe learn something new and compare their own processes to yours.

Very refreshing!

Anyhow, you can read all about my current workflow over on The Screening Room Blog
