    The Talented Mr. Murch

    October 9, 2008, 5:55 pm
    The best editing does not call attention to itself and neither does Walter Murch. Soft-spoken and deeply philosophical, the renowned sound and picture editor could shamelessly flout credits that include "American Graffiti" and "The Godfather," for which he edited sound, "Apocalypse Now" and "The Conversation," for which he edited both picture and sound, and "The English Patient," for which he earned Oscars for sound and picture work. Instead, Murch keeps a low profile, operating from the...

      Behind the Scenes with Film Editor Walter Murch

      November 25, 2009, 4:31 am
      An 8 Min interview with Walter Murch: In the world of filmmaking, actors and directors dominate the spotlight. The people who actually assemble the film frame by frame and beat by beat toil in relative obscurity. Walter Murch is one film editor whose profile is much higher than most.

      Paper Cut and Avid's ScriptSync

      November 24, 2009, 4:29 am
      I’m working on a promotional video, or maybe series of videos, for a local condominium complex and it presented itself as the perfect opportunity to try something I’d heard great things about: Avid’s ScriptSync.

      MC4 plays nice with Snow Leopard

      November 24, 2009, 4:26 am
      Avid released Media Composer version 4.0.4 this afternoon. The big news is that the new release is certified to work with Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6.2). The bad news is that Avid recommends a clean install of Snow Leopard, not an upgrade.

      The Online From HELL!

      November 24, 2009, 4:25 am
      Well, after a normal shift onlining two acts (we decided to do the online act by act), and then a marathon 25 hour online session over the weekend, I am done. And that is all I pretty much did...online. No color correction as there was no time. This was the fastest and most down and ditry online I have ever done. I finished 10 min before the producer had to jump onto a plane with the tape and drive with all the media managed footage.

      Media Composer 4.0.4 gets Snow Leopard Support

      November 24, 2009, 4:24 am
      Earlier today Avid release Media Composer version 4.0.4. This version adds support for MacOS 10.6, or Snow Leopard. GREAT news for all those people who bought new Macs that only come with Snow Leopard installed. If you have Leopard, 10.5, then you can stick with what you have (MC 4.0.4 is compatible with Leopard, version 10.5.8.).

      Final Cut Pro Bug Found!

      November 22, 2009, 4:22 am
      When I’m working I’m always in a constant state of awareness about how I can change my keyboard mapping to make my workflow faster and more efficient. The keyboard manifesto argues that changing Final Cut Pro’s default keyboard mappings can make your editing faster and more efficient. But it’s also important to be aware of changes that you might make.

      Michael Ondaatje on the art of film editing

      November 22, 2009, 4:21 am
      He's known best for his literary work, but, Michael Ondaatje's latest book tackles the art of film editing. Conversations - a collaboration with the American film editor Walter Murch - grew from Michael's experiences working on the cinema adaptation of his acclaimed novel, The English Patient.
