    The Craft of Editing

    February 23, 2012, 3:37 pm
    The craft of editing video/film/whatever you want to call it, is a skill. The operation of a non-linear editing system is one thing but what about the craft? How do you learn what makes a good edit and what doesn't? I don't know if I have the answers but I've cut many projects, with about 65-70 percent destined for broadcast.

      Technicolor Downsizes

      March 26, 2015, 4:15 pm

But the move may be more of the old “evolve or die” strategy in order to weather the storm, rather than one of being overstretched by subsidies and bad business models of the Visual Effects industry.

      March 26, 2015, 12:14 pm
      Trapanese — who, as orchestrator, helped make Daft Punk sound good on “Tron: Legacy” and M83 on “Oblivion” — was hired by director Robert Schwentke to score the “Divergent” sequel.

      March 26, 2015, 9:38 am
      Have you ever been waiting in line at the grocery store, innocently perusing the magazine rack, when a song pops into your head? Not the whole song, but a fragment of it that plays and replays until you find yourself unloading the vegetables in time to the beat? Elizabeth Hellmuth Margulis explores earworms — a cognitive phenomenon that plagues over 90% of people at least once a week.
