The Desk Diary was another series that I was supposed to write regularly which covers the changing work environment together with any other bits and bobs that are going on in life. The last one I wrote was in September when it was still hot - its bloody freezing now!
Since the last installment, the office has had a few additions which are mostly for Culture Japan production. The iMac is where all the main Final Cut editing goes on. Sometimes we have 3 Macs rendering stuff but really need to make time to look into having some sort of cluster just for rendering.
When my producer or I are not doing the Final Cut editing, we have other freelance editors who come in to work on the show. I'm always looking for FCP editors who can speak Japanese - if you fit this description and live in Tokyo then please let me know if you are interested in work. Rates to be discussed with you directly but is usually the industry standard for Japan.
Took a Japanese and Korean language degree at university which is where I learned how to speak Korean. Have not been typing Korean for a while due to the lack of Hangul keyboard stickers which I used to pick up on each visit to Korea. Lately found that I could get hold of them in Japan from Rakuten.
