Warning: Very “tech”.  (So it’s OK to skip to see the progress they have made.)

This is a really interesting talk about betting on design.  Can you solve what sounds impossible through design?

Joey Scoma put a lot of work into showing you how movies cut and transition.

It’s just under 12 minutes.  If you’re into movies or make video, you’ll enjoy it.

It’s from the Rocket Jump Film School.
