    Edit Fest Short Cuts Event

    December 15, 2010, 9:37 am
    For our first EditFest Short Cuts we decided to reach for the stars. We got two of them! On January 20th, 2011 at 7PM, at New York's Helen Mills Theater, please join us for an intimate discussion of the editing process through the work of film editor Craig McKay, moderated by distinguished author/editor Bobbi O'Steen. EditFest Short Cuts is produced by ACE and Manhattan Edit Workshop and presented by The Moving Pictures Collective NYC.
    MEWNEWLETTERHEAD










    American Cinema Editors (ACE) launched EditFest LA - a unique event, dedicated to the art of film editing .  This weekend series of screenings, talks, Q&A sessions and parties proved an entertaining way to shine a spotlight on an amazing and often misunderstood art.  A year later, Manhattan Edit Workshop offered to co-produce EditFest NY, the east coast extension of EditFest and the blockbuster editing event of the Summer!  Both shows have become wildly popular weekends for both fledgeling and veteran editors as well as film-lovers and enthusiasts.  Now in it's third year, EditFest is growing again - with EditFest Short Cuts!  These "mini EditFests" are in-depth talks with a single editor, aimed at taking a deeper look into one artist's body of work.

      Beyond the Mixtape: The Needledrops of The Cornett

      September 19, 2017, 7:48 am
      hen I featured Adam Tinius’ Pulp Fiction soundtrack essay, I noted that Shaun of the Dead has some of my all-time favorite needledrops and cheekily-named song selections. Turns out, Tinius has created the same kind of rapidfire sonic punchline collage with director Edgar Wright’s entire Cornetto Trilogy.

      VFX Basics with Vegas Pro by Bobby Grubic

      September 15, 2017, 1:35 pm
      In our third look at MAGIX Vegas Pro we’re looking at a bit more depth when it comes to effects and adding some pizazz to your video. Like many other NLEs, Vegas Pro has a palette full of video effects (more can be added via the Vegas plug-ins) that can be applied using a clip by clip method. You can also apply effects to an entire track without using the adjustment layer way of working that some other NLEs use. But the design of Vegas takes effects one step further and lets you apply effects to the entire project which can give you more options during the edit. If you wanted to apply something like a vignette or color correction to the entire edit you could do that by applying the effect to the video master output.

      September 15, 2017, 4:06 am
      When audiences inevitably marvel at the computer-generated worlds in Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water and the Angelina Jolie-produced animated drama The Breadwinner, both screening at this year's Toronto Film Festival, it will be thanks in large part to Ontario's thriving visual effects community.
