  1. Great interview… Especially when he talks about the misconception about how easy it is to produce professional media and how it’s actually increased the value of people with the skills to make good media and not decreased their value due to accessibility of technology.

    Makes sense, the more amateurs you have *trying* to put the tools to use to make professional quality media, the more the REAL professionals stand out!
