“State of Electronics” Trailer

Friday, October 8th, 2010

State of Electronics – Trailer from karl von moller on Vimeo.

After several months of researching, interviewing and filming, I’m excited to present the first public Trailer to my new Documentary “State of Electronics” – A discussion on the Electronics Industry in Australia. Even though the documentary is focused on Australian Electronics Design and Manufacture, much of it applies to all countries from around the world.

The discussion is focused initially on the world of Hobby Electronics and how it’s decline could effect the Electronics Industry in the future. The Documentary then discusses many issues that face industry including the issue of “Repair and Recycle”, “Education”, “Surface Mount Technology”, “Globalisation”, “Opportunities” and many many more off the cuff & candid comments from Industry professionals.

The Documentary features interviews with famous Australians and Industry professionals including Dick Smith, Dave L Jones, Doug Ford, Leo Simpson, Grant Petty, Matthew Pryor, Jonathan Oxer, Andy Gelme, Andrew Griffiths, Eugene Ruffolo & Bill Petreski. In the future, I am planning to interview just a few more before the final release of the Documentary soon.

Shot completely on the Canon 5DMK2, using the Zoom H4N Audio recorder. Directed, Edited and shot by Karl von Moller, this version of the trailer is largely ungraded and only has an FCP sound mix applied. Music track is composed by Karl von Moller also. Enjoy!

This just came to me by way of Dave Jones of the EEVBlog. The shots of the electronics store aisles remind me of HSC Electronics in Santa Clara, CA! Check it out!

EEVblog – The Electrical Engineering Video Blog Podcast

Monday, November 9th, 2009

David L. Jones, maker of, among many other things, the awesome uWatch, is producing a really cool Electrical Engineering-themed video blog/podcast called ‘EEVblog‘.  I don’t why it took me this long to realize what an informative and hilarious video podcast this is, but a couple recent episodes really sucked me in.  I am now a huge fan.

David’s blog actually sprang to life in April of this year, so if you want to watch all of the episodes you have some catching up to do.  However, some of the most hilarious episodes are also the most recent.  For example, here is David’s very honest review of the Microchip PICkit 3, a development tool for Microchip PIC microcontrollers:

And here is Microchip’s equally hilarious response:

David’s blog has covered a lot of other cool topics, such as exploding capacitors, equipment teardowns, and microcontroller datasheets.  Check EEVblog out!
