The "Follow Dave?" Editing Workshop CD is the first editing workshop created by Star Movie Shop. This CD-ROM appears to have been developed about ten years ago so the content works on very old computer. Even though the movie images are only half size and the video quality is very poor, the disk is very educational, specially since none of the other disks from the Star Movie Shop have written instructions.
Print this pdf file before you start. It will help you follow along with the story.
The "Star Here" movie
This is an educational animated MPG movie so it should play on Windows computers, Mac computers and Linux computers. This should play on all computers manufactured in the last ten years.
The Film Dailies
The original film dailies came from a promotional tape released by the production company as a publicity stunt. The quality is extremely poor so you cannot use this for your demo reel.
Also, because the size of the only 320 by 240 pixels, few editing programs can edit these clips. Only Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere can edit the dailies directly.

The film dailies
The film dailies are ready for editing with any QuickTime enabled editing program which can edit clips that are 320 by 240 at 24 frames per second.
An editing workshop disk is good publicity for a motion picture. Generate this kind of publicity for your motion picture by creating your own editing workshop disk.
So when you complete your motion picture, remember the "Follow Dave?" Editing Workshop disk. This disk will be used by film schools for the next 50 years (which is how long the "Gunsmoke" footage was used.)
That is a lot of publicity for your movie.
