December 24th Mix 2015 - Someday at Christmas

Adam Schoales

For the last several years I've been putting out an annual Christmas mix CD as a gift for family and friends. Last year's mix, Someday at Christmas was easily one of the most upbeat and fun (and jazzy) Christmas mixes I’ve ever prepared.

In the past I've hosted them, and will continue to host them, on an external site where you can grab every release, but I've also decided to feature the current mix on my website as well.

Christmas is upon us, so be sure to head over to listen to Someday at Christmas. And if you like what you hear, head to and grab the 6 other mixes.


Got A Backup Plan?

Adam Schoales

It happens to the best of us. The hot new OS update comes out and we can’t wait to try it. We download it and, despite our better judgement, install it without first backing up our computer. Upon completion you discover a bunch of your important apps aren’t compatible, and your stuck with a fancy new OS but a bunch of broken apps. Or worse, the install goes hay-wire and you’ve bricked your computer. If only you had backed up first! 

If you're not backing up your computer, simply put, you need to be. I'm going to walk you through the process. Don't worry, it's much easier than you think!!

The main spot for the Ontario Nurses Association's fall 2016 campaign includes a few moments of "movie magic", including the seamless combination of multiple takes to create the perfect performance, as well as some hidden visual effects work (can you spot them?).

The companion piece, More Cuts at the Hospital, is a re-edit of a previous spot. It also features some movie magic, where we utilized Final Cut Pro X's powerful optical flow settings to create a powerful moment from a short section of raw footage found between takes.
