Sport is coming back to the world, and to TV.
We have football, horse racing, snooker, formula 1 cars, darts and much more.
For some sports, on tv, not having an audience/crowd makes little difference. F1, for eaxmple, you can barely hear the crowd if they are cheering and they are mostly just a blur filling the stands in the background. As I have mentioned before, I believe, tickets cost hundreds of pounds.
For football, they add on fake crowd noise. As the seating is empty and covered, it is totally weird. Cricket don’t so much, just add a sort of ambient background.
I know there are people who do like watching sport, but I just wanted to record how wonderful it has been for all these weeks with sport missing.
It has been announced that Alan Parker, famed British film director, has died.
If you don’t know Sir Alen, he directed Midnight Express, Bugsy Malone, Fame and the Pink Floyd film, The Wall.
I remember seeing Sir Alan at the NFT some years ago. It was a jolly evening, but I seem to remember he was not so well.
If you want something super powerful and free for editing videos, then Lightworks may be the thing.
I tried it and was impressed, but it’s too powerful for what I need (which is simply editing odd clips).
Here’s another free software package you may find useful: GIMP.
It has great picture drawing and editing tools and is very flexible.
