I’ve shared quite a bit of camera information lately, so I thought it was time to come back with another short film. All too often science fiction films rely on certain crutches to tell a story, forgetting that storytelling relies on all of the other aspects of filmmaking technique to succeed. The chilling and gruesome mutations are the main attraction, but the rest of the technique is what keeps The Gate, from Matt Westrup, chilling and powerful through its entirety.

I posted this piece back in June 2008 after I had cleaned out a closet and found my old Highlander: Uncut editing package.

Compared to many of the other Oscar categories, "Best Film Editing" is often a tough one to predict. With "Best Cinematography," "Best Art Direction," and "Best Costume Design," for instance, you can clearly see how each nominee demonstrated a mastery of their craft and set themselves apart from their peers. With editing, however, aptly called "The Invisible Art" of cinema, what’s been left out is just as important as what ends up in the final cut.

OK, first I need to point out this old post from 2009. To summarize the part I want you to pay heed to, the HVR-1500 deck that I had SO MUCH trouble capturing with in FCP? Well, it is rock solid in Avid. Not one issue...not one slipped frame, not one dropped frame, not one reconnect issue. The Avid treats this like any old deck....or, NEW deck.

With Apple’s announcement of the iPad there’s been tons of articles, tweets and blog posts about this upcoming piece of hardware. There’s also been tons of ink spilled about just how this little device could be useful in the filmmaking process as well, some right here on this site.

ACE Members TEch Web Discussion on FCP workflow: A couple of colleagues recently discussed with me problems using Final Cut Pro. One is a feature editor. The other does documentaries. I’ve most recently used FCP on an episodic series. Three different types of productions, but I think there are some common solutions. Solutions we’re planning on using on the second season of Warehouse 13 for the SyFy channel...
