    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?

      Eric Poydar (the Editor) Meets Larry (the Actor)

      October 30, 2008, 6:36 pm
      Archival footage, scenes differing in aspect ratio, a movie that tiptoes the line between documentary and fiction; for even the most established editor, these things could become a real headache in the cutting room. But for Eric Poydar, writer-director-editor of the faux-documentary Larry (the Actor), the challenge of seamlessly interweaving different forms of footage into a present day narrative about Larry (Lionel Mark Smith), an actor on the verge of giving up his livelihood, was met with...

      Editor David Michael Maurer has Audiences Shriekin

      October 28, 2008, 6:33 pm
      A talented actor and an imaginative director are only part of what makes a horror movie so terrifying. Where would scary flicks be without the clever cuts and camera angles that make us jump in our seats?

      SMPTE Set to Restandardize Time Code

      October 24, 2008, 6:29 pm
      It may be hard for anyone who works professionally with video to imagine it, but time code as we know it is about to change. Recognizing that innovations in digital acquisition and post have rendered the nearly 40-year-old approach to video time code obsolete, the process for defining a 21st-century standard for time code is well underway in SMPTE. That doesn't mean it's too late to have some say in the process — but you'd better hurry. A good place to start is the upcoming SMPTE Annual...

      Robert Wise AFI Bio

      October 23, 2008, 6:28 pm
      His dilligence and creativity brought him to the next step of his career at RKO: assistant editor. Wise built on his knowledge of film employed as an assistant editor on the Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers movie, CAREFREE (1938). Then, with William Hamilton and Henry Berman as his editing guides, Wise worked on Garson Kanin's BACHELOR MOTHER (1939;) the critically acclaimed and popular HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, (1939); and Mark Sandrich's THE STORY OF VERNON AND IRENE CASTLE (1939).
