      Sherry Pie Edited out of RuPaul's Drag Race

      April 4, 2020, 2:56 pm
      Sherry Pie was disqualified from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” following multiple allegations of catfishing. These came to light only after filming of all but the final episode of season 12 was completed. That left producers with a problem. What to do with all that footage of Sherry Pie, who dominated the competition in dozen taped episodes.

      April 4, 2020, 2:56 pm

In this extended Premium tutorial, Julian Rodgers examines some of the features which make this plug-in something of a hidden gem in the Pro Tools stock plugins inventory.

      VFX studios share shots of their crews working fro

      April 4, 2020, 2:56 pm
      I started seeing, too, a bunch of fun Zoom captures or other ‘home set-up’ images from the studios, so I’d thought I’d embed some here. Note, there’s of course a whole lot of VFX studios who have successfully implemented remote working – many of which have been operating like this for a number of weeks already – that might not appear here. This listing below is only where I found pics of the crew (or, in some cases, pics of the crew’s cats).

      1917 Editor Interview: Lee Smith on Being Invsible

      April 3, 2020, 8:06 pm
      The “hidden man” is how editor Lee Smith sees himself in 1917. Not for a second did Smith want audiences paying attention to his cuts or tricks, but to instead immerse themselves in director Sam Mendes‘ World War I story, which is constructed to take place in one seemingly unbroken take. Despite the obvious technical wizardry and razzle-dazzle, they pulled it off. Audiences were caught up in the feeling and exhilaration of 1917, not the craft of 1917.
