Series Preview - "Touch"

This was excellent. Kiefer Suthetland's new TV series.

ABOUT THE SHOW -
We are all interconnected. Our lives are invisibly tied to those whose destinies touch ours.

This is the hopeful premise of the new drama TOUCH from creator and writer Tim Kring (“Heroes,” “Crossing Jordan”) and executive producers Peter Chernin (NEW GIRL, TERRA NOVA) and Katherine Pope (NEW GIRL, TERRA NOVA).

Blending science, spirituality and emotion, the series will follow seemingly unrelated people all over the world whose lives affect each other in ways seen and unseen, known and unknown. At the story’s center is MARTIN BOHM (Kiefer Sutherland), a widower and single father, haunted by an inability to connect to his emotionally challenged 11-year-old son, JAKE (David Mazouz). Caring, intelligent and thoughtful, Martin has tried everything to reach his son.

Episode 1 can be found here.

Canadian Video Shoot

Any Canadians here who can give me a 'ballpark' idea on the cost(s) to hire a local Canadian Video Crew to shoot a manufacturing process? If I can determine a typical 'Day Rate' for a shooter, an Audio guy and a Grip, I can come up with a ballpark cost... which is all I need at the moment.

Thanks!

Penalty Cut in Song-Sharing Case

A Boston federal judge drastically cuts $675K penalty against grad student in song-sharing case

The Associated Press
By RODRIQUE NGOWI Associated Press Writer
BOSTON July 9, 2010 (AP)

A federal judge has drastically trimmed a $675,000 verdict against a Boston University graduate student who was found guilty of illegally downloading and sharing songs online.

Judge Nancy Gertner on Friday cut a jury's damage award against Joel Tenenbaum of Providence, R.I., to $67,500, saying it was unconstitutional and "wholly out-of-proportion."

Tenenbaum was sued by music companies who said he violated copyright rules. He admitted downloading songs between 1999 and 2007. The jury found him guilty and assessed the damage award last July.

His lawyers appealed, calling the award "severe" and "oppressive."

Gertner said the reduced penalty is still severe enough to deter illegal file-sharing and adequately compensate the companies.

A spokeswoman for the plaintiffs did not immediately return calls for comment.

Flying Car gets FAA Approval

The FAA has just awarded the Terrafugia Transition an exemption which will allow the 1,440-pound car/aircraft hybrid to fly under a "light sport" designation, even though it hits the scales at a hefty 120 lbs. more than the rules allow. A light sport pilot license only requires 20 hours of seat time - far less than what a full license would demand.
