    Off The Tracks


    i thought a documentary about editing software was laughable, but i was surprised how much i enjoyed this, being a Final Cut devotee myself.

    not a groundbreaking documentary, but there were a few nuggets of wisdom abt the democratization of video by making it easier to edit.
