Running

BDR: Jacksonville Finishing my first sub-2 hour half marathon in 2+ years.

I’ve decided to start writing about one of my biggest passions, running. I originally relaunched HeathMcKnight.com to discuss Final Cut Pro X when Apple redesigned and launched their famous NLE back in 2011. Since I work for doddleNEWS as Editor-in-Chief, where we cover filmmaking and movie news, and we’re part of the Thalo group that also includes LarryJordan.com, I decided to stop blogging actively here (here’s my explanation).

So now I’d like to start blogging about running, and everything that comes with it: Gear (I prefer Newton Running shoes), training (Randy Kruman is my coach, and I’m on a special modified Lydiard-style plan), my races and those that look cool, articles and blogs I find and want to share, and more.

The photo to the left is me finishing the Best Damn Race -Jacksonville half marathon. It was my first sub-2 hour half since December 2014, mostly because I’ve had a lower right back issue that flared up at the end of 2014. I’ve been dealing with that kind of pain since I was 18 (I’m 41 now) due to a slightly lower right hip. Since I’ve been stretching better, the pain went away and I had a great half!

BDR is a fantastic race company based in Florida west of Tampa, and they have races in Jax (January), Safety Harbor (February), Orlando (March) and now New Orleans (March). Great people, great courses, great after parties! Check them out here.

Thank you for stopping by, and I’ll have a new running blog soon!

Where Have I Been?

Hey everyone, it’s been almost 4 years since I posted anything! So where have I been?

At doddleNEWS as Editor-In-Chief since April 2012; we cover filmmaking news, reviews and tutorials, plus movie and TV news and reviews. Check it out here. I recommend bookmarking doddleNEWS, where you can get a lot of news on cameras, editing software (FCP X, etc.), and much more.

Our parent company Thalo recently acquired Larry Jordan’s training site (Larry is still onboard) and his podcast The Buzz.

In addition, I got married last December 2015, and since January 2012, I’ve been running. Literally running. Ran my first half-marathon in Southwest Florida in January 2013, and my first marathon at Disney World in January 2014.

As far as film and video production and editing (I still love and use Final Cut Pro X), not much is new there. I will be making a new short film in the coming months, if all goes according to plan. It will be the first film I’ve directed since September 2007 (Hellevator), and the first film I’ve been involved with since April and May 2008, when I co-produced the feature film December for writer/director Dr. Gary Dresden.

In the meantime, my most recent works are the afore-mentioned Hellevator (a short film written by comic book legend David Michelinie [Iron Man, The Amazing Spider-Man) and 9:04 AM, now on DVD. If you’re a local filmmaker in South Florida and the Treasure Coast, check out the Palm Beach Film Society.

Here’s Hellevator:
