Hey folks – You may have noticed a slight slowdown in the blog a few weeks ago. That’s because we were having our company meeting in Portland . Since we were all together, Best Job Ever, a popular web series about the best jobs in the tech industry, sent the ever-engaging Veronica Belmont (host of Techzilla and whole lot more) to interview us about how a small, mostly-virtual company like Red Giant is able to make such an impact in our industry

This Reader Quicktip comes from Matthew Gilna in Los Angeles. He’s been working on a cool series called The LXD or League of Extraordinary Dancers. This Quicktip is a technique that he’s been using quite a lot on this series to create new synced clips when he has to sync video with separate audio.

Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter are having a good year. Their work editing David Fincher’s The Social Network garnered them both Oscar and Eddie nominations. And the film itself, in addition to being a front-runner come Oscar night, was a success with both audiences and critics.

I’m on a plane, on my way to London, where Avid will launch the next release of the Media Composer family of editing systems at Broadcast Video Expo.

We in post production are digital content creators, too, and many are facing declining wages as our technology gets democratized. Will Huffington Post begin to pay everyone?

I can't let February the 14th pass without some acknowledgement on my part, so here it is: one of the coolest, warmest, hottest romantic exchanges I can think of in any movie.
