Whilst editors are usually unseen (both on set and on screen) and therefore relatively unknown, Sally’s work with Quentin Tarantino evolved to become much more than that in both areas. On any given DVD it would usually be possible to find Tarantino gushing about the importance of collaboration in the edit room as a chance to rewrite the story one last time – and the nonlinear nature of many of his films gave the general public the chance to consider work beyond the shooting stages and sets.

Sally Menke, famed for editing all of Quentin Tarantino’s movies, died yesterday on a hike near the Hollywood sign, apparently due to the record breaking heat.

As a hiker prone to heat exhaustion and ignoring it myself, I am paying heed to the nature of her death and hope you will too. And I wish to pay tribute to her.

Interesting new developing technology from Adobe. It uses a layer of tiny plenoptic lenses in-between the sensor and the primary lens to capture the full range of focused picture information across the entire depth of the scene. You can then manage and re-focus the image in post software like Photoshop or Lightroom just like any other aspect of the Raw image. Sounds pretty incredible and slightly far fetched but who knows. Have a look.
