    Soap Editor Lugh Powers

    September 10, 2010, 11:50 am
    Following on the Emmy awards, this editor/interviewee has won two daytime Emmys for Outstanding Achievement in Multiple Camera Editing for a Drama Series and been nominated four other times for Days of Our Lives, which has run since 1965 and he’s been cutting for eight years. Lugh Powers is also an Avid trainer and engineer extraordinaire for many years, which is how I first crossed paths with him. He enthusiastically consented to a dinner interview after a long day (at work since 6 a.m.) on.

      Classified Section Added

      July 9, 2009, 4:04 pm
      A Classifieds section has been added. We've received many emails about posting things directly onto the Art of the Guillotine Main Page. Instead we revived the classifieds section. If you want to buy something, sell something, look for work, post a job etc. You can do it there. Realize we are not responsible for what is posted there and who contacts you.

      Film Editing - A Hidden Art?

      July 8, 2009, 4:01 pm
      For a film editor it is a cause for frequent amusement and/or irritation, that film reviewers are never able to point out the editor's contribution. If a film is described as very effectively cut but otherwise long and boring, the editor knows that the film may have contained conspicuous transitions of scenes that were invented during the shooting or in the scriptwriting, but that the editing was ineffective or even sloppy.

      I wanted to share a little work in progress file. I find After Effects tremendously useful for resizing video. In fact I use it often to pre-process footage before applying additional codecs.

      Editors Dan Hanley and Mike Hill, who won Academy Awards for film editing on Ron Howard’s Apollo 13 (1995), have known each other since the early 1970s when they were both working in the Paramount Studios shipping department.
