Norman joins us this week to discuss why filmmakers are looking to the US for hints on creating great movies. Their focus isn’t on technology, its on the craft of story-telling, as Norman explains.

Just before showtime, Telestream introduced the latest version of ScreenFlow – software used by trainers around the world to capture computer screens. Lynn Elliott, product manager at Telestream, stops by to explain the new features in the software, way ScreenFlow is moving far beyond its original purpose of simply capturing screens, and gives us a glimpse of where Telestream is headed in the future.

Creating successful advertising is hard enough for most businesses. But when you are a professional, like a lawyer, the rules and regulations of your industry can make advertising far harder.

Recently, Michael has featured a series of blogs called: “Weapons of Influence,” which he shares with us on this week’s show.
