Argh!
Paul! You said "Graham and I's office (sic)".
There is no such word as "I's (sic)". The word you're looking for is "my". "Graham and my office". Technically you can also say "Graham's and my office" but it's redundant, as only the last item in a list takes a possessive.

Okay, watching the rest of the video. I still love you Paul, but please don't do it again, okay?

Magic cards, is there any problem that they cannot solve?

Really enjoying these behind the scene videos.

Standard Deck: just some random fail cards.
Modern Deck: 5 colors, because less than 5 is for wimps.

It's actually something of a pet peeve of mine when people say "x" is not a word; the diffition of word is "A single distinct meaningful element of speech or writing". "I's" meaning is prefectly clear as a Possessive of "I" and it is distinct thier for it is infact a word. I Grant you it's not "proper english" or "good grammer" but saying it is not a word is an insualt to the natural mutational evolution of language. After all everything wasn't a word till someone used it as one.

anywho, very cool to see the behind the sences as always.

What is up with the shaky-cam close-ups in the "Pony Time" video? Is that due to the 1/8 inch thing you mentioned?

Very well. "I's" is not proper grammar as per the current rules.

In regards to the whiteboard hotspot problem, could you get a set of curtains, put them over the board and pretend it was a window instead?

Wouldn't work for hustle (since it's supposed to be there) but for other videos a pretend window could solve your hotspot problem.

Maybe patting it down with a powder to take the shine off. be abit of a pain though both in apealing and clean up but it could get the jerb done.

Could also try taping some white poster boards up on there.

And I swear, there is a video somewhere in "Doom Booties".

I thought the whiteboard hotspots were the biproducts of the office windows. when I saw them I thought, oh look they get a sunny day!

as a suggestion, along the window line, vertical or horizontal blinds, like what would cover a door wall, pull the cord they slide open, pull the cord, closed. illusion!

Man, these videos are a complete gear-porn tease for me...

You shoot all your scenes with the 600D, or do you have other cameras as well?

Was that's someone's orgo homework Kathleen was erasing off the whiteboard in the beginning, or are you guys starting a meth-lab to fill in order to do a proper "Breaking Bad" parody.

It's a 60D, actually, and yes we mostly shoot on that. We've used a T2i in the past (which is what Loading Time is shot on, for example).

We'll do a whole equipment rundown in an episode some time.

Oops, my bad (shows how much I know about Canon cameras :oops: ). Was there any particular reason behind the choice to go with a DSLR, rather than something like a Camcorder?

The crew used to use a Sony HDR-FX1 camcorder. Before that they used some camcorder that

I believe why the crew switched to using DSLR from camcorders is that they provide the same video quality (Full HD at 30 fps) with much better optics. You can easily change lenses and adjust things like depth of field with DSLR. A camcorder which can do the same costs megabucks.

Yes, I was very happy to see that credit in today's video, except it makes me think about tiny baby socks that will destroy the world. To wubstep.
