    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.

      Deluxe New York Mixes Aronofsky's 'Noah'

      April 23, 2014, 7:54 pm
      Director Darren Aronofsky chose Deluxe New York’s mixing stage to create the layered soundscape for his epic feature Noah. Skip Lievsay and Craig Henighan mixed the film using Dolby Atmos technology, which allows mixers greater control over the audio, offering “object based” mixing and the ability to spread sounds throughout the theater, including directly overhead. Atmos audio mixing is scalable and allows each Dolby Atmos-enabled theater to get the most of the sound design, independent of its size or the number of speakers it has.

      The Pixar Perspective on Race

      April 23, 2014, 7:53 pm
      In the past, this column has focused primarily on looking at the positive side of Pixar’s shorts, features, and filmmakers, which hasn’t been terribly difficult; when compared with its competition, Pixar’s films are frequently far and away the best examples of mainstream animation of the modern age, no matter the format.
