  2. Dan,

    I was shocked when I saw your comment, because one of the first podcasts I heard many months ago was yours. I remember it was about “Inspector Gadget.” Your son sounds intelligent beyond his years.

    When I was looking for books to buy on podcasting, yours still wasn’t yet released.

    Basically, you’re a podcasting celebrity — and my knowledge of your work’s quality enhances your compliments.

    Thanks for the suggestions for the iTunes link. I added one, as requested. Also, I put a link to the RSS feed on the blog as well.

    And yes, I have many, many more episodes to come. I’ve got some ideas . . . and some of them will be extra good, I think.

    Again, thanks for the positive feedback.

  3. hey Izzy! Awesome podcast- i’m not sure how I stumbled on it, but it’s been a godsend.
    I’m a music producer/engineer in Carlsbad CA., and while i’ve done a ton of music and post stuff, I’ve never jumped into the visual world.

    That’s all changing with a new show that I’m producing in studio, It’s live music concert with doc style footage combined to make an indy show similar to “VH1 story tellers” .
    Anyhow, your tutorials have been a great jumping off point to at least be able to communicate with the video side of this adventure.
    I’t’s also helping me with my home movie skills! ( have a ten month old girl at home that just LOVES the red light on the cam! )
    What cam are you shooting with btw? what frame rate, and do you shoot much at 24p?
    thanks and keep it coming!

  9. Izzy,
    I just started viewing your videos. I started at one and have moved up from there. Many of the vidoes stop around half way and go straight to the advertisement cutting off the rest of your video’s. I have to reload and replay several more times before I get to see the whole video without the interuption. What is the problem? Is it my computer or ;your video setup?

  10. Doug,

    I’m not sure why that’s happening. Thanks for letting me know. When I play them on my system, they work just fine, but it’s difficult to know if it’s universal or local.

    Please continue to try…
