    Washington Post, What Makes the Cut?

    March 27, 2010, 12:38 pm
    To Appreciate the Art of Film Editing, You Have to Start With a Frame of Reference. How do we know within the first 10 minutes of "Slumdog Millionaire" that it's going to be a fanciful, time-shifting, rag-to-riches fable about a plucky orphan boy set in the slums of Mumbai?

      The 7 Signs Of An Amateur Mix

      May 2, 2018, 8:52 am
      Before you can even delve into creating a great mix, it’s good to be aware of the traits of one that isn’t there yet. These 7 signs of a amateur mix come from the 4th edition of my Mixing Engineer’s Handbook and are useful in picking out problem areas, looking at it from a global level instead of examining individual tracks. Does your mix have any of these characteristics?

      Netflix's re-edit of ‘Arrested Development’ se

      May 1, 2018, 4:23 pm
      Not everyone loved the fourth season of Arrested Development. Each episode focused on one character and full storylines didn't really come together until the very end of the season. Because the storytelling was so different from that of earlier seasons, some fans of the show found the latest installment to be a little off-putting. And that's why way back in 2014, the show's creator, Mitch Hurwitz, said he would be re-editing the show's fourth season, rearranging the scenes so that they flow chronologically rather than having each episode focus on a single character. Now, well over three years later, Hurwitz has announced that the shuffled fourth season will debut on Netflix this Friday.

      Top 5 Editing Gadgets on The Market Right Now

      May 1, 2018, 6:04 am
      When you first start editing, it’s easy to advance from a beginner to an intermediate editor with enough practice and a bit of patience. Becoming an advanced editor, though, is a tougher climb, and it’s all about saving time. Once you’ve got the lay of the land in your NLE of choice, the next step is memorizing shortcuts. Editing accessories that allow you to map keyboard shortcuts — so you can click three buttons to make a quick cut — are a big help in this process. Here are our current favorite gadgets that will speed up and simplify your edit.

      An interview with The Florida Project Post Team

      May 1, 2018, 6:04 am
      When I saw a list of Premiere Pro related people that Adobe was brining to NAB 2018 my first request was for the team behind Mindhunter. While I love the show it was my second scan over the list a few days later that I was even more excited when I saw that team-members from the Oscar nominated film The Florida Project were going to be available for interview. I had just seen the movie about a week before and loved its free flowing indie style, the pace of the film (though my wife did ask at one point if anything was going to happen) and that unexpected ending. Ohh that ending. A movie hasn’t made me smile that wide and that long in quite while.
