tar and bz2 a set of folders as individual files

for f in *screenflow ; do tar cvf "$f.tar.bz2" "$f"; done
I use screenflow to create and edit videos. The default storage for a single video is a folder. If I want to move that someplace, it's easier to zip up the folder and send it. If I'm making a series of short videos, I might have 10 folders. This will go through and make a single bz3 file for EACH folder.

What Others Think

This may break if "*screenflow" returns files/folders with weird characters, and it wont' actually compress the tarballs (it'll create them verbosely, but won't compress them).

Are thoses comments all from Bots or what? This is pretty much a very very (very) basic find command. So much so that i am genuinely curious about comments saying how this is (almost) revolutionary. I maybe was under the impression that "FU" meant some sort of NINJA stuff or, at the very least, not a place where to post manpages examples. Maybe i am wrong. Surely.

What do you think?

Any thoughts on this command? Does it work on your machine? Can you do the same thing with only 14 characters?
