    Shooting and editing immersive video is not very straightforward. Thankfully, Hugh Hou has made a million tutorials on this subject. I’ve been experimenting with the techniques he’s outlined to try to find what works best for me. This week I tried Mistika VR again and I found that it doesn’t do a noticeably better job…

  • Playlist for Issue 4

    I’m working on finishing up issue 4 of and, of course, I’m listening to the playlist I created while I’ve been working on it. The thing is though — I’ve been working on it for months so I wanted to post this before I started listening new things. I’ve written about a bunch these songs…

  • Feeling better

    I got some sleep, completed some long overdue things, and cleaned up. It’s amazing how much better that makes me feel.
