    Ang Lee editor, Tim Squyres

    November 13, 2012, 6:21 am
    Tim started his working relationship with Ang Lee nearly 28 years ago when Tim was hired because they couldn't afford a real editor. As Tim described it, he "learned to edit by editing Ang Lee features". Asked how he and Ang work together, Tim emphasized it's the directors’ movie, not his. During first assembly, Tim will often cut while Ang is shooting, sending him cuts for feedback.

      February 4, 2009, 11:20 am
      In part one of our ongoing look at "media online" for editors, we covered a group of sites dedicated to the Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Pro communities. This installment delves into an exploration of how some sites are seeking to help editors put the sometimes chaotic universe of HD in order, as well as exploring the future of the digital media workplace.

      A Gathering of the Missives, Part 1

      February 4, 2009, 11:20 am
      As post technologies and applications get ever more complex, editors are seeking out wider sources of social networking—websites, podcasts, blogs, vlogs, microblogs, linklogs, corporate blogs—to gain direct and immediate access to accurate information sharing, whether they are looking to solve an imminent problem or present peer-to-peer solutions. Some of the sites presented here were founded by Guild members. A couple are the work of manufacturers who naturally have the most direct...

      Get Your Finger Off That Dissolve Button!

      February 4, 2009, 11:18 am
      I can barely watch television anymore. Seriously. It seems that no one knows how to edit anymore, and the culprit in this demise is the non-linear editor. Allow me to explain. About 20 years ago, I went to Los Angeles to visit a friend that had landed a producing job at KNBC. During my tour of the station, my friend towed me through the edit suites. Above the door was a huge banner that...

      ScriptSync in Avid Media Composer

      February 3, 2009, 11:16 am
      Digitize the footage and organize Avid Media Composer project bins as you would on any 24 fps HD show. To prepare the script file — we get the script e-mailed to us as a text (.txt) file — break down the script into scenes and save each scene as a separate text file. Hint: Try to grab as much blank space at the top and bottom of a scene in order to have room for clip images.

      January 31, 2009, 7:12 am
      Since first winning acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2008, Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire has gone on to win the hearts of audiences the world over. It’s the tale of Jamal, a young boy from the slums of Mumbai, who becomes a national phenomenon when he wins India’s version of "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire?" The timeline of the movie, which relates each of Jamal’s game show questions to an instance in his troubled past, is a key to its popularity. The clever...

      EDITING: 'OUTLANDER'

      January 29, 2009, 7:12 am
      The intricate film has nearly 600 visual effects shots and was shot using a range of source formats, including HDCAM and Super 35mm film. To help achieve its distinctive visual appeal, the film's conceptual art and design was created by a team of artists behind the Star Wars trilogy (Iain McCaig and Ninth Ray). The film was edited entirely in HD on four Avid Media Composer systems using the DNxHD codec.
