    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.

      Best SSD for Mac

      August 23, 2016, 9:41 am
      If you don't have the budget for a new Mac, there are other ways you can give older Mac a boost. Extra memory is always useful if you haven't already filled the slots to the maximum, although the biggest enhancement will come with the addition of a solid-state drive (SSD), which Apple calls a Flash Drive across its current range.

      Mad Max: Fury Road - Color grading by Eric Whipp

      August 23, 2016, 6:38 am
      came on board with the production in early 2014, and I met with George Miller, the director, and talked about what the look could be like. It was amazing to get such an open brief which was essentially "it should be saturated and graphic, and the night scenes should be blue". The main reason for this is quite interesting. George has been watching 30 years of other post-apocalyptic films and noticed that they all use the same bleached and de-saturated look. We knew we didn't want to make yet another film like that, so we had to find a way to make it saturated and rich.

What started in the comments section on Cartoon Brew has now been reported by The Washington Post, The LA Times, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, and many more besides. It’s sad to say, but stories of poor working conditions are becoming an embarrassingly regular occurrence in our industry.
