2012 End of the Year News
The Bronx Boys Still Playing at 80 Completed
Benjamin Hershleder has completed producing, directing, and editing the feature length documentary The Bronx Boys Still Playing at 80, hosted by Carl Reiner. This film is a follow-up to the award-winning short documentary The Bronx Boys (archived web site) which was completed 10 years ago and eventually aired as part of Cinemax's Reel Life series, and on PBS. The broadcasts later lead to a story in TIME magazine about the men. The official web site is in development; in the interim, there is a Facebook page, and an IMDB page.
Avid Editing Book Published
Benjamin Hershleder has written a book on Avid Media Composer editing (core essentials and beyond) for Packt Publishing. Benjamin has been teaching the operational aspects of Avid Media Composer software since 1995, and has been an Avid Certified Instructor since 1997. He has been teaching as an adjunct professor at American Film Institute since 2007. Packt Publishing has a series of computer related books (e.g. programming) that they call "cookbooks" which include step-by-step instructions; and this book is one of the latest in that series. While the cookbook format is theirs, Benjamin worked hard to have additional information included in each chapter as well as in several appendices (at 435 pages it's packed full of helpful information). So, there are a lot of demystifying explanations for both how and why to do things, along with many sanity-saving tips and tricks. If the final stages of publishing stay on track, it should be available January 1, 2013 (or earlier). Also visit the Facebook page.
