    Collaboration and Why The Auteur Theory Is Bull

    August 11, 2010, 1:06 pm
    Directors, listen to me hear — it’s impossible to make a film by yourself. Not every idea you’re going to have is good, and not all good ideas are going to come from you. The best comments I’ve gotten from directors are when they turn to me after viewing my Editor’s Cut and say "Wow, there were some things in there that I never would have thought of myself. Thanks."

      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.

      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.

      Editing is Mind Control for the Masses

      January 21, 2009, 7:04 am
      In a study released in mid-2008, neuroscientists noted that certain styles of motion pictures are capable of exerting "considerable control over brain activity." In the study that used fMRI imaging to study neocortex response, researchers found that the level of control exerted was linked directly to the film’s editing and directing style.

      Film Editing's Affect on the Brain

      January 21, 2009, 7:02 am
      Using advanced functional imaging methods, New York University neuroscientists have found that certain motion pictures can exert considerable control over brain activity. Moreover, the impact of films varies according to movie content, editing, and directing style. Because the study, which appears in Projections: The Journal for Movies and Mind, offers a quantitative neuroscientific assessment of the impact of different styles of filmmaking on viewers' brains, it may serve as a valuable...
