From the Editors

We would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year! Each new year brings feelings of promise, good health and great success.

There is something about the calendar page turning to January 1 that makes all of us extremely hopeful for the future.

As 2012 begins, we can also celebrate the end of our third year of publishing the 695 Quarterly. That is quite an achievement for any new publication and a testament to our contributors as well as you, our readers.

Our goal has always been to highlight the membership of Local 695 and the incredible talent that we bring to our industry. These are dedicated technicians and innovators, always at the ‘bleeding’ edge of technology.

Every current development has a past to build on and Scott D. Smith, CAS explains it in “When Sound Was Reel 8.” But there is more; the second part of the profile of Courtney Goodin by David Waelder and “The Workflow of Oz” by Ian Kelley. Great reading.
