Day 314


I wanted to give you guys a little peek at how much work is involved with the DVDs. This is a quick sketch of an overlay design needed to teach a lesson on focusing with the 7D. In order to make the graphics work, every little square and tick mark has to constructed from scratch in illustrator, and then positioned in order to give an authentic viewfinder representation. Anytime something changes, (like a focus square moving) it has to be animated by hand. So when you watch a video that has 2-3 minutes of viewfinder information, it may have taken 2 weeks to put it all together. (to get the just the overlay design made, it takes about 1-2 days.) And no...I am not kidding. Its extremely tedious and time consuming.

I'm on the home stretch with the 7D DVD. All the hard work is done, and I'm just editing little things here and there. Pre-Orders should be available within the next 1-2 weeks.
