Video Editing Software & Training

02 June 2018 - 09:06

It seems that the latest profession to aspired to for kids is to be a "YouTuber" - and hopefully a successful one.

My eldest is now wanting to host his own YT show.  

So of course, his discussion with dear old dad is - show me how to do.

Well, I must have missed the class on video editing, and have no known competencies in such areas - so have no idea where to begin.

Getting the software is not the problem, although I'm not so keen on letting him on to the Imac's iMovie stage, but how to either quickly learn the trade, or even better yet - pay someone to teach him how to do?

Any places to look?

Can anyone make any sense of this case?  What was her end game?  Why would she (or others) spend all this money to clear her name - after she spent all the time in prison already?

Am I missing something?

Well - this section is a bit quiet.  Last post was started in Sep 2016!

I noticed that IHOP finally opened a branch here - but in Siam Paragon?


I guess I'll wait for the follow-up branch I guess.


Juthamas Gets 50 Years In Film Festival Bribery Case

29 March 2017 - 13:05


Former Tourism Authority of Thailand governor Juthamas Siriwan was sentenced to 50 years in prison and her daughter to 44 years on Wednesday in the long-running film festival bribery case.  The Central Criminal Court for Corruption and Misconduct Cases also ordered confiscation of the 62 million baht in bribes they received.
The Office of the Auditor-General (OAG) indicted Ms Juthamas, 70, and her daughter Jittisopha Siriwan, 43, in the court on Aug 25, 2015.


Juthamas, daughter put behind bars

Former Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) governor Juthamas Siriwan and her daughter were put behind bars on Wednesday following a delay in the court’s ruling on their bail applications.

The Central Criminal Court for Corruption and Misconduct Cases on Wednesday sentenced Juthamas to 50 years in prison for demanding and receiving a bribe of more than US$1.8 million (Bt60 million) to enable an American business couple to get the rights to run the Bangkok International Film Festival.
Her daughter Jittisopha was also sentenced to 44 years in jail on the same charge.

The pair sought release on bail, offering a guarantee of Bt1 million each. The primary court, however, passed on the bail request to the Appeal Court. The lower court said it feared the defendants might flee the country due to the tough penalty.

As of 6pm, the Appeal Court had not ruled on the bail pleas hence the ex-TAT head and her daughter were taken to the Central Women’s Correctional Institution.
