Yep,

I spoke to Gilbert from Blue Circle at AXPONA 2 weeks ago. Bought one of his PLC things which amazingly good.

There is something so poetic about a toilet paper roll product from a company named Schiitt.smily_headphones1.gif

I live in fear of Chapter 29. Am I Schiit's worst customer ever? I can't be alone in wondering this. Come on, Jason, the suspense is killing me.

He's still my friend (although I became closer friends with the cinematographer), but he's also still a 1st Camera Assistant, for the past 20 years or so... Which is why I say it's really impossible to "work up" and that you need UNI or somehow be self taught. It's not the kind of career you can learn on the job with unless you want to screw up the shoot.

Speaking of toilet paper rolls, Musical Fidelity had its X line of budget components housed in a form factor not too dissimilar:

No, thanks.

 

To the point. Thats exactly why I always kept banks out of my business and life.

 

Regarding the whole story: Simply fascinating to see a business come together...

I think Jason has figured a marketing style that could be the future of marketing as we know it:

Stay in touch with your consumers. Not by hireing someone to do that. No, you, the guy who make the schiit, will find time to stay in contact with your consumers.

I can tell you guys, thats an exhausing job. 

 

Without a doubt its very nice to read about a story like this. I know I had a project once that I wanted to market, but I was totally scared that it would fail. Nice to see some people have the balls go on with their dreams. Kinda keeps my hopes up!

Can someone who has had enough coffee today point me at a picture of the toilet-paper DAC?

 

I'll go brew some more, I promise.

They never actually made the toilet paper DAC from what it sounds like. I think Mike just suggested it to keep it cheap. The ones in ABS tubes are linked on the previous pages.
