July 18, 2012 - What an exciting time to be in video production!
The cameras have never been better - high definition photos and videos with
great stereo audio (and that's a point and shoot!).
New computers are faster than ever and this thing called the "interwebs" really seems to be catching on.
After a five-year hiatus, "All the World's a Stage" public access television is taping again.
Before moving back to San Francisco in 2007, 64 half-hour episodes were
produced by durand productions in Pasadena, California.
