Strange PA – The Edit Begins

Strange Pennsylvania| 2 Comments »

While it looks like Dave may be just watching TV or downloading something off the Internet that might get him in trouble… he is actually starting the mammoth process of editing the “Strange Pennsylvania” documentary.  Before things got to this stage, WQED’s Digital Avid worker bees, Amy, Ryan and Andy were able to get all of the […]

Strange PA Trip – July 16

Strange Pennsylvania| Comments Off

After 966 miles, and a fairly quick drive from Philly to Pittsburgh (thanks to the powerful hemi-like engine in our QED minivan), the Strange PA shoot is now over. All we have to do now is edit the approx. 30 hours of footage into some kind of show that makes sense. That starts in 2 […]

Strange PA – July 14

While in Philadelphia shooting, Dave, Frank & I do have a few food traditions that we always try to stick to.  Our first stop in town is always Geno’s for authentic and essential cheesesteaks.  Frank & I do “wiz,” while Dave R goes provolone.  For some reason we’ve never even looked at Pat’s just across […]

On South 22nd Street in Philadelphia lies the College of Physicians, home to the Mutter Museum.  (The word “Mutter” has those two dots over the “u” kind of like that metal band “Motorhead” with the dots over the “o”) The Mutter Museum was founded to educate future doctors about anatomy and human medical anomalies.  Uh […]

We’re now south of Easton and north of New Hope, PA in a 7-acre boulder field called Ringing Rocks Park.  This natural wonder lives in Bucks County, is open 365 days a year, and is free for all to enjoy.  This has got to be the only park on the face of the earth where everyone walks in with a […]

Well we’re now knee-deep in blob mania after taking part in the runout of the theater. Dave R & Frank were perched atop (yes on top!) of our van that was somehow parked almost directly across the street from the theater amidst the huge crowd so they could get the big wide shot. And where […]

Strange PA Trip – July 11

Just west of Philly lies an interesting town called Phoenixville.  I guess I was expecting it to be like Phoenix, just without the dry heat.  What we actually found was a pretty cool place with a lot of charm due to its restored old buildings and storefronts.  The centerpiece of the town is the Colonial Theater […]

Strange PA Trip – July 11

So it’s Friday and today we are driving from Gettysburg to Phoenixville to experience Blobfest 2008.  One problem.  We detected a potential camera problem today that could derail the whole shoot.  While checking our tapes from the Little Horse Farm, he detected a missing pixel, which means a little circle of video was missing from […]
