      Count the M’s: Me. Speaking at Marin County Medi

      May 4, 2014, 5:41 am
      What does an editor bring to the party besides a digital editing machine?” That’s the question I will attempt to answer when I speak at the Marin County Media Center’s May Mixer this Wednesday, May 7 at 7 p.m. Mmmmm. The Media Center is a non-profit located in San Rafael, CA that teaches young and [...]

      Year of the Horse – and the Chinese Translation

      January 31, 2014, 6:17 pm
      Just in time for Chinese New Year is the Chinese translation of my book, Cut by Cut: Editing Your Film or Video, Second Edition. Click here to buy it. Page for page it appears to be the same as the English version and my Chinese speaking friends have not complained about the translation yet – [...]

      A Head for Comedy and Editing Machines

      December 29, 2012, 4:42 pm
      In 1985 I walked into waiting room - a wide space with chairs in the hallway - of the head of post production's office at Universal Studios. A dapper 60-something man in a cardigan sat in a chair, patiently waiting for me. He was editor Dann Cahn, my new boss. Thus we began a season...

      Why you will benefit from watching the sessions

      December 20, 2012, 8:16 am
      The subject of The Sessions - a paralyzed poet hiring a sex surrogate to lose his virginity - may make you writhe at the thought of a touchy-feely film. Go anyway. While the movie doesn't have the laughs that Steve Carrell and Katherine Keener served up in The Forty Year Old Virgin, it does deliver...

      At last, a diligent soul, one John Buck, has had the passion and taken the time to trace the track of editing from its manual scissors and glue past to its electronic mouse and keyboard present. An Australian editor, Buck writes up the recent fast track decades of technological advances as well as the build-up [...]

      I received this article from a NY Film Academy teacher. It's laudable because it explains to eager shooters the importance of editing and why it should be considered from the get go. Thank you John and Anjum Bhardwaj who emailed me the request and article! When the Cinematographer Thinks Like an Editor by John Loughlin...
