Not everyone who reads NoFilmSchool is an expert – in fact most of us are still trying to learn something – and that's really the reason why we hope people keep coming back each day. If you're new to filmmaking, your editing experience is probably very limited – and it can be overwhelming starting from scratch.

A couple years ago I interviewed Michel Arcand, one of Quebec's most accomplished film editors. At the time he was working on Maurice Richard (aka The Rocket), for which he would later win Genie and Jutra awards for best editing. Our phone call lasted over an hour, but of course being an editor, I cut it down to 12 minutes, focusing on the more inspiring and insightful moments to portray Arcand's magnificent vision into the intimate process of film editing. Enjoy.

I recently worked on a graphic card for a Star Trek DVD commercial and I thought it would be boring fun to talk about the Action Safe Area! Many graphics are broadcast in HD but there must also be an alternate version for people watching in standard definition.

Many of our ProVideo Coalition readers already know that Matrox’s MXO2 family now includes four members, especially since I have covered them quite recently in my Direct DreamColor interfaces article. However, fewer of our readers may remember the original MXO device from Matrox, which is quite different from the MXO2 family members.

I recently watched "Dead Ringers" for the first time in about 20 years and finally connected to a film that had left me cold back in 1988. This was the first film directed by David Cronenberg after one of his rare box office hits "The Fly". Cronenberg is an interesting director, as his films often create unsettling moods, though he usually relies on almost unstylish medium shots and close-ups as coverage for his scenes.

Editor Chris Lebenzon got his start in motion pictures in the late 1970s, when he started fooling around on the KEM machine that his roommate, Michael Wadleigh, had used to cut Woodstock. Though he worked steadily on a number of small independent films at that time (most of which still have never been seen by audiences), Lebenzon's first big break came when editor Richard Chew brought him on board as an assistant editor on Wadleigh's Wolfen in 1981. For the past two decades, Lebenzon has been...
