  • Things I've Learned About Editing from Life

    Things I've Learned About Editing from Life

    November 4, 2012, 10:24 am
    I had never heard of an NLE until after I graduated college and I attended a filmmaking bootcamp program in San Francisco called the Digital Video Intensive. From the time up until I was 23, I was a Math/Science Geek who happened to always be performing, whether it was Marching Band, Colorguard (I twirled huge flags around and dropped them on my head a lot), or dance.

      It has been MONTHS since I have last posted and I apologize for that. I started this tumblr blog to share my knowledge in a casual setting.

      How to cut tv promos and trailers? If so, can you

      In a nutshell, they need to tease, have energy and tell a story in a short amount of time. The best way to get a sense is starting watching lots of trailers and then break them down into what went into them. What works for you? What doesn’t?   There is a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Teaser Trailer that breaks down how to cut a trailer. It’s clever and hilarious. Give that a watch.

      Staying Flexible in Editing

      August 9, 2014, 10:25 am
      I am an editor.    Not a comedy editor, or a documentary editor, or a music video editor.   I am an Editor. I train myself in telling stories in different forms. At every editing seminar I attend, the question of avoiding being pigeon-holed is always asked. It’s hard to avoid being pigeon-holed. Producers want someone proven in whatever style they are looking for. I am constantly proving myself with each new producer and each new type of show. I have been able to figure out differ...

      From Editing to Directing/Producing

      November 12, 2013, 5:46 am
      Anyone who follows me on twitter is probably aware that I recently joined a group of post production professionals that produce a podcast called Going Postal Show. First and foremost, I am currently an editor that works in broadcast television, but we all need to have a little fun side project, right? So the criteria to be a part of the podcast: have a passion about production and post production, love movies, be comfortable around tech talk and of course, be a geek. I guess I qualified.A po...
