    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.

Over the past 15 years, Bird has worked on some of the world’s most renowned television shows, including X Factor, Big Brother, and Wife Swap—plus numerous high-end political, historical, and observational documentaries.

      VFX Legion Delivers Hardcore Henry

      April 30, 2016, 4:33 am
      Hardcore Henry is anything but subtle. Sit through its blistering, adrenaline-fueled runtime and you’ll witness shootouts in Russian brothels, highway chases through red-hot explosions, blue-sky free falls from thousands of feet above sea level. But what makes this different from any other thrill-packed action movie is that this time you witness all of the unfolding events from inside the head of the protagonist. To put it another way -- you are Hardcore Henry.

      Day 2 - Editing on DaVinci Resolve 12.5

      April 29, 2016, 4:36 am
      Ok, if I'm being honest about this, Day Two was really a continuation of a very LONG day one. See I finished working last night about 6:30, then wrote the Day One blog, and then was preparing to go to bed around 11pm when I heard my phone chime that I had a text. A Producer on the west coast needed me to do a quick turnaround of a national broadcast spot today for Friday delivery.

      HP was everywhere at NAB 2016. We met Mike Diehl, product manager for the z workstation. We asked him about what makes the z workstation the go-to PC for video professionals. His answer was quite interesting.

      NAB 2016: Day One: Editing on DaVinci Resolve 12.5

      April 29, 2016, 4:35 am
      At the recently completed NAB Show in Las Vegas, Blackmagic Design took the wraps off DaVinci Resolve 12.5. It really could be a Resolve 13 but they probably wanted to avoid that unlucky number. I've been predicting for over a year now that NAB 2016 would be the year this tool became a full fledged non-linear editing system and sure enough, it's a solid editing platform.
