First impressions from the Non Linear frontier, February 2005
I cannot be the only recordist who has experienced that sickening, cold sweat inducing, feeling of horror when you pull your rushes tape out of the DAT recorder only to find that the tape is well and truly spaghetied around every capstan, drum and roller in sight. It happened to me once when I was working on a Digibeta shoot. Luckily I had recorded onto the camera as well so all was not lost. However, the thought of that happening on a film shoot filled me with dread.
