On the Writer’s Strike, and being a Hand Model…
I got to spend the other day down in SF as part of a video shoot for Adobe Media Player. Basically, I was a “hand model” for the camera, pointing at various parts of the AMP interface, and mousing around on my laptop.
AMP is Adobe’s new desktop media player. If you haven’t checked out AMP yet, you need to. With the strike currently going on in Hollywood, the amount of first-run shows is dwindling fast. So, if you are a TV junkie like me, it’s either reruns, or reality shows. AMP has a ton of new, original shows to watch right now. I’m currently hooked on the comedy and animation channels. There are over a dozen shows in each category. Just go to the Catalog screen, and see what looks interesting to you.
To download the beta of AMP, check out labs.adobe.com. It’s free, and it beats watching reruns until this strike gets settled.
