  • One Bite at a Time

    One Bite at a Time

    July 22, 2010, 10:53 am
    Anytime you start a complex, long-form project – whether it’s a feature film, documentary, TV show or corporate video – it can seem very overwhelming. With 30, 40, 80, over 100 hours of footage and more – where do you start? The answer is to start at the beginning. Like the response to the old question, "How do you eat an elephant?" – it is best handled "one bite at a time."

      Soviet Montage Theory: Exploring the 5 Types of Mo

      January 13, 2021, 5:33 pm
      In the vast history of film and video, there’s perhaps no cinematic or editing technique more recognizable or powerful than the montage. Movie-lovers like us see it in cheesy hits from the 1980s and 1990s like Bloodsport and Dirty Dancing. We see it in critically acclaimed art films like The Godfather and Citizen Kane. We even see its classical roots in Battleship Potemkin (1925) and recreated and homaged in The Untouchables (1987).

      Everything You Need to Know About Editing in FCPX

      January 13, 2021, 5:32 pm
      Both Mike Matzdorff and I are professional career editors who work on multiple edit systems. We’ve realized that most NLEs are variations on a theme—source clips, tracks, insert, and overwrite. Final Cut Pro X stands alone with a truly unique approach to editing including its ability to cut with no tracks and a magnetic timeline. This results in a vastly different and more efficient editing workflow with significant advantages, if you learn the ropes.

      January 13, 2021, 1:48 pm
