John Payne - Take One

I just was able to witness this, in person. It brought chills. His talent is beyond amazing! We've spent the past two days in the studio making a new song for the TV show and this is just a snip of the new song. John just laid down the bass track about two hours prior before a fast dinner break. Then he decided to say, "You know, I think I want to add some more guitar." He cabled up, pressed record on ProTools, and this is what came out of him on the first take...….Absolutely amazing! I am so blessed to have him available to me as a resource and great friend. Cheers to John Payne!John Payne - Take one - laying down a track for a song to be featured on a Reality TV Show about Zip Lines called Zip Away. http://www.ZipAwayTV.com Copyrigh...

We are sometimes asked why we don't shoot the show in 4K. Well, okay, we get it. You want to see things very crisply with great color. Well, with all the crap going on and confusing marketing about TV's and video quality the past few years, here is actually a VERY GOOD video that explains Standard, High Definition, and 4K monitors / TV's. Does a fantastic job of explaining the difference between frame rates and 780p, 1080p HD, and 4K. It moves a little quick in spots so if you've not been paying attention the past 20 years to video quality and formats, get ready to back drag and repeat some sections. But I HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone who is going to run out a purchase a 4K TV this year to watch this first. Also applies to cameras, camcorders, computer monitors, iPads, Laptops, etc. I think you'll find you should save your money. Plus, we think you'll understand why we shoot the show in 1080p HD 60 fps. Enjoy!
