      At Last, a Modern Book on the History of Editing

      April 7, 2015, 3:42 am
      A good book like a well-edited film just flows along and carries you in its merrily rolling stream. Such is the case with Twilight for the Gods written by Jack Tucker, ACE. He has created the most up-to-date, thorough, readable history on editing that I’ve encountered. He packs its 116 pages with facts and concepts […]

      Take 2 – Film Editing: Making an Invisible Art V

      March 30, 2015, 12:44 pm
      I’m repeating the class I taught at the Marin Community Center for Media in downtown San Rafael, CA this spring. I’m looking forward to another great group of students. The feedback from the last class was strongly positive and helpful, I’m glad to report. As a result, I’ve expanded the course from four sessions to […]

      Guest Blog: Why Editing Can Make or Break Your Cor

      January 28, 2015, 6:08 pm
      On this site and in my books I’ve written on this subject but I thought it would be good for editors, producers, and other filmmakers to hear it from a company of professionals. I welcome guest bloggers with informative articles so here’s one submitted by One Inch Punch Pro, a Toronto based video production company […]

      Beyond Gunsmoke: Practice Footage for Serious Edit

      January 21, 2015, 1:44 pm
      Are you a beginning editor who desperately want some practice cutting footage before striking out in the world? A film student or a college looking for footage beyond the tired all scenes (such as the scene from Gunsmoke which I and others taught over the decades)? Misha Tenenbaum, an editor whom I met a few […]

      100 years of Rotoscoping

      January 16, 2015, 5:42 pm
      Confession: I’ve watched “Glee” since its first episode in May 2009. I like the message of the show – acceptance – seeing GBLT characters as well as hetero-and metrosexual characters, and its often non-formulaic plots, issues, and nuances not to mention its musical numbers. As a member of Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (the […]

      Editing a Book Trailer – Part 2

      December 11, 2014, 1:55 pm
      Introduction My caveat for PictureYourBook’s  second book trailer was that my partner Jay and I create a trailer with free music (thank you YouTube) and no VO. My reason? I wanted to show authors how a lower budget video can still be a highly effective, engaging trailer. Here’s Jay’s experience meeting that and other challenges […]

      Anatomy of a Book Trailer

      November 27, 2014, 6:29 am
      I have formed a film company for creating book trailers called PictureYourBook. What is a book trailer? It’s a 1-3 minute video promo designed to tell readers what the book is about and intrigue them enough to buy it. Yes. Just as a movie trailer (a.k.a. a movie preview) lets an audience know about a […]
