    What do editors do?

    February 15, 2012, 11:50 pm
    by Guillaume Choquette It's all about perception, at least according to this rendition. And speaking of renditions, the last image is of a visual effect being rendered, translating to "Editors actually sit and wait too often for the machine to complete the edit." True. There are other of these cartoons floating around - on producers...

      One Brit's take on editing reality TV

      July 21, 2011, 8:58 am
      Following up on the last post on constructing reality, here's a terrific piece from the UK. Journalist and comedy writer Charlie Brooker hosts "Screenswipe" a weekly broadcast where he looks at TV subjects from an incisively knowing and humorous perch. In the video on editing reality TV below, toward the end he also unwittingly provides...

      Reality Frankenbites

      July 16, 2011, 4:28 pm
      I grazed this subject when I wrote up my interview of reality editor Adam Coleite last August. Today I'll sink my teeth into the controversy around Frankenbite a.k.a. Frankenbyte editing that's providing another reason to snap at reality shows. What's in a Frankenbite? I would define it as two or more dialogue lines or parts...

      Sometimes no cutting is needed

      July 5, 2011, 9:47 am
      I thought this was a fitting Fourth of July blog. What could be more American than a large Midwestern town executing an upbeat music video to an iconic pop tune with the help of a few corporations? The amazing feat of this boisterously camouflaged ad is the fact that it's shot single camera in one...

      What's in a sound?

      July 1, 2011, 10:03 am
      Sound editors routinely punch up frightening screams in movies by placing animal growls on tracks underneath and tweaking them. This video demonstrates how you can manipulate natural sounds to produce something entirely different, in this case, ethereal music. www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujBTOPhGLMo This video demonstrates how you can manipulate natural sounds to produce something entirely different, in this [...]

      Conan O'Brien's editors on Final Cut Pro

      June 25, 2011, 12:26 pm
      The editing world took a giant leap forward this week, according to Apple and many FCP gurus, with the launch of FCP X. There are many great places to learn about this new software: Larry Jordan's site where you can read about it and download a tutorial, Phil Hodgett's site where you can take in

      I needed a break from prepping the second edition of Cut by Cut: Editing Your Film or Video for delivery next month, hadn't seen a Woody Allen movie in a couple of years, and am a fan of the "eternal city" (guess I'll have to like it on FB) so hit the local multi-plex and [...]
