      Editing Multiple Personalities

      July 13, 2010, 1:26 pm
      Once the interviews were synced, all the clips were converted to Apple ProRes 422 24fps. After gathering all of the perspectives from each interview, I came across two lines that helped me really understand and create Sasha's story. Her father talks about Sasha's contradicting personalities— as if there were a constant battle between the two sides of this curiously engaging girl. This conflict goes even deeper when Froomer asks Sasha to introduce herself.

      XDCAM Vs. ProRES

      July 13, 2010, 10:51 am
      Yeah, I know, I know. I already knew this, and I have told many MANY other people that they should edit XDCAM as ProRes...but I thought that I’d just save a LITTLE time with these quick promos I am cutting and keep them as XDCAM, but render them out of Color as ProRes. I did a small test and it worked.

      The Look of Michael Clayton

      July 12, 2010, 4:56 pm
      Michael Clayton has been described as a thriller, but it’s more about "soul sickness," according to writer-director Tony Gilroy, about people who find themselves in exile facing moral dilemmas. As a result, his brother, editor John Gilroy, A.C.E., had to make sure the audience stayed inside the characters, while creating a subtle build-up of tension throughout. The filmmakers also created a specific look, which paid homage to movies from the 1970s, in which composition within a widescreen...

      Editor Leaves His Mark on Michael Clayton

      July 12, 2010, 4:55 pm
      So what advice would you expect from a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright father to his younger son, who will be editing the first feature film of his eldest son? "Just cover his ass," John Gilroy, A.C.E., laughs.

      Conrad Buff: The Editor as Manipulator

      July 12, 2010, 4:53 pm
      Known for having cut some of cinema’s most iconic actions sequences, largely in effects-heavy films, Oscar-winning editor Conrad Buff, A.C.E., is poised to add another CGI-laden title to his impressive list of credits when Paramount Pictures releases M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender July 2. A 3-D live-action film based on Nickelodeon’s animated television series Avatar: The Last Airbender, this is the editor’s second film in collaboration with Shyamalan.

      An Editing Dynasty

      July 12, 2010, 4:52 pm
      Gathered together in the same cutting room on the 20th Century Fox lot, Don Zimmerman, A.C.E., and his three sons––Danny, Dean and David––have the peculiar ability to meander in and out of one another’s thoughts when they speak. Their memories are collective, multi-faceted, complementary. The effect, made more acute by the fact that Danny and Dean are astonishingly identical twins, is rather like a single, hydra-headed Zimmerman. As they fall into what must be a familiar dialogue, one...

      All in the Family

      July 12, 2010, 4:51 pm
      With the sad passing of legendary editor and former Editors Guild Vice President Dede Allen, A.C.E., in mid-April, and the subsequent simultaneous memorial tributes to her in New York and Los Angeles held a month later (see Page 12), my thoughts turn to family. Especially after reading the comments of her son, award-winning re-recording mixer Tom Fleischman, MPSE, CAS, addressing the attendees at the East Coast memorial: "As I look at you, I see my family, extended family, dear friends and...

      July 12, 2010, 12:30 pm

The new FCS Maintenance Pack Network Admin will allow a system administrator perform the tasks and functions of the maintenance pack remotely. A full rundown of the tool was posted on the Digital Rebellion site just over a week ago.
