A good friend of mine is working on a film series, and has a running Facebook group to discuss the production process while it’s being made.

He posted this today:

So here I am setting up a composite stack for a scene we did the other night where a character video-calls another while on Facebook. This function didn't really exist last week, so I just made something up. Right now, as the shot is rendering, I read in the news that FB and Skype have just done a deal. I haven't even finished the shot yet and already it is obsolete. Crazy world.....

Crazy world indeed. Technology marches on.
