The recent release of the Star Trek: Into Darkness movie has been garnering a fair share of attention, with fans looking forward to the revitalization of the franchise, and actors potentially benefiting from their exposure in major roles. There has been plenty of talk over Benedict Cumberbatch’s casting as Khan and his potential to play villainous characters, but much of the popular press doesn’t seem to touch on the larger implications of Cumberbatch’s casting.

I have been learning or editing videos for a month and I feel pretty comfortable with the program. Well, I am hoping to learn more or get to know more from Final Cut Express such as add more colors into the video or using Chomo Key something like that?. So, in future I will know how to edit my own video without any worry!
Today, I was helped the AMA by organizing all of the files in the Hard Drives.
My first time of using Final Cut Express, it was the hardest thing that I have not done before. It took me the whole day to figure out of how to put put musics and videos…First it was very confusing but when I started to play around and watched some Youtube videos (on the internet) I started to feel comfortable of adding videos and removing the sounds.
One of the new things that I have learned from Final Cut Express is using Chroma Key! First, I did not what’s it? So, I did some researches online, in fact, Youtube! And then started to play around with it. Now I did realize that a lot of the videos and photos are using it. In additional, I am planing to learn some new keys…

A killer frisbee player is on the loose. Who could it be? Part of the 2012 Youth media Camp 12 Hour Film Festival.
Genres: Mystery + Sports
Trees are changing their colors, the air is nippier and drier, students shed their summer clothes for the heavier jackets, the political election signs dot the lawns. All these can point to only one thing – the Asian Media Access annual Youth Media Camp.
This is the 18th year since the first Media Camp in 1994, and the landscape of the video equipments have changed – from heavy, expensive, analog tape cameras to now hand-held, digital memory card based palmcorders; from multi-thousand dollar editing suits to now a complete video editing suit running on a single laptop. But the art of story telling, and one of the hardest aspect of producing a video, hasn’t changed. And at the media camp, that’s what we hope you will take away at the end of the camp.
So register now. The camp is free of charge, but space is limited. This camp is open to all, but we do have an Asian American focus for high school youth ages 13 – 18.
