Things I used to do but don't anymore
  • building model airplanes
  • play piano
  • play french horn and/or trumpet
  • fly kites
  • paint miniatures
  • take photos for photography sake
  • video production
Things I used to want to do once I had the means, but haven't done
  • fly remote control planes
I bet that second list should be longer. A couple of things on the first list are so rusty they should almost be on the second list, as "find out what's changed in this since I stopped doing it, and invest in tools for it."

"paint miniatures"

We're ready! We have the occasional "painting night". I'll invite you when it next happens.

"video production"

I am very curious about how to get a certain effect on a bit of video. Maybe we can discuss this via Email? I would love some help from someone who "knows about these things".

Cool! I meet the nicest people... ;)

This being the case, I'll just post what I am curious about:

In the Star Wars movies, when someone gets a holographic message, the image appears blue with faint lines scrolling through it (I think this is interference).

Is it possible to recreate that blue, translucent affect on a home video? I'd love to make a clip that I can use as a prop in a Star Wars RPG session.

My problem is that I know absolutely nothing about this stuff. Is there a special program one uses? (I would assume so) What kind of format does the film clip need to be in? Are there good websites with tutorials to learn more?

This is a project for the future, but I look forward to learning some pointers now.

Thanks. :)

What do you do instead?

That's a good question.

Play games, mostly. D&D, WoW, and now a little D&D Online.
Cook (less than I'd like).

Road trips to neat places to see neat stuff have dropped considerably in the last few years, I should revive that.
