So I haven't been on CDN in possibly a number of years now, but for an update: I got published for my research recently. I got to go to the west coast to present it in front of a jury of my peers too. There were no survivors.

I developed some software that aids digital film production. It does a bunch of things like aligning a film's script to all of the footage of the film automatically, manages pre- and post-production content, and has some visualizations for helping film editors sift through their footage during clip selection. The system does some other stuff too, so I'm going to try for a second publication for that stuff.
