My favourite Chrome extensions of 2021

These two extensions have really changed the game for me in terms of my productivity, so I’d like to share them here. There are plenty of useful Chrome extensions out there, and no doubt plenty of extensions that have the similar functionality than the one’s I’ve listed here. I just happened to find both of these through a simple Google search after asking myself “Surely there’s a better way to do X..” and they seem to do a fantastic job of working as advertised. Best of all, both of these extensions (at least for the way I use them) are

EVs, Superblocks, Christopher Nolan – Sunday Sesh 07/11/21

Hello, welcome to another Sunday Sesh, where I give a little life update and share tidbits I’ve found interesting over the past week. This week I went to watch a movie with our friends. At the cinema! It was such an immersive experience and I’d forgotten just what I was missing out on. Nothing like watching Netflix at home. We watched Shang Chi and I could feel every hit, block and pulse in the movie through the massive sound system. I thought the movie was great! Seeing an all-Asian cast led by an Asian Marvel superhero is bound to inspire

The feeling of success, short-circuit your habits, slowing down – Sunday Sesh 31/10/21

Editing Videos Better AND Faster

Here’s a couple of great tips I’ve picked up in recent months that have really improved my video editing. I’ve found these much more handy beyond the typical “5 shortcuts to make your editing faster” posts that I read when I first started out.   How to Avoid the “Video” Look While Color Grading https://nofilmschool.com/how-avoid-video-color-grade I’ve still got a lot the learn when it comes to colour grading, but I like to think that I’m improving with every video that I edit. As a filmmaker, naturally I’m aiming to get closer and closer to that “cinematic” or “film” look. One

You’re (probably) trying to do too much – Sunday Sesh 24/10/21

We’ve all got those projects that we would do if we had more time. We imagine reading all those books on our reading list, recipes to try out, taking up bouldering, launching that side hustle. But imagining all these projects never gets you any closer to realising them. I’m usually trying to juggle a bunch of things at the same time. Wanting to learn Khmer, practice the guitar, have a social life, take photos, be a good husband, write blog posts, film passion projects and do client work. For starters. I recently read this article that argues against having all

Eerie abandoned resorts, snorkelling and surviving waterfalls

A trip to Koh Rong Sanloem A couple of weeks ago, we got invited to go with some friends to Koh Rong Sanloem, which is an island off the coast near Sihanoukville to the south. This trip would be a few firsts for us: our first visit to Sihanoukville, first time to an island in Cambodia and our first time travelling with a group of friends in Cambodia. We travelled over Pchum Ben (ancestor’s day), a week-long holiday where Cambodian people usually visit their home village and pray at their local pagoda. It was a 4-day trip in total. This
