  • A Gift For Editors

    A Gift For Editors

    December 25, 2010, 8:26 am
    Ken Sallows, A.S.E., the great Australian film editor, sent the original opening to In the Blink of an Eye. Here's the story behind it and the pdf.

    The story is that without Ken Sallows, A.S.E., there would be no In The Blink of an Eye book by Walter Murch. It's that simple, at least at first glance. It wasn't until I talked to Ken that I heard the full story.
    Walter Murch gave a lecture in Australia in 1988 and Ken who was a big fan of his work, couldn't make it. He had heard there was a recording and so he tracked it down and listened to it. He felt the need to get this document out to everyone and began the arduous task of transcribing it.
    Once the book was transcribed he tracked down Walter Murch and faxed him the entire document and suggested it be turned into a book. Murch made a few changes and faxed it back to him.
    Ken spent the next year searching for a publisher to put this document into book form and eventually found the Australian Film Institute was willing to put it out.

    In the original printing Ken was asked to write the forward/introduction. The book became an instant hit in Australia and immediately had the eyes of North American publishers.
    When the book was republished for the rest of the world Ken's introduction was removed and since the distribution of the newly published version made it to Australia, AFI stopped printing their version with Ken's introduction.
    It seemed as though the unsung hero of the book was lost, until now, here's Ken Sallow's original Introduction.

      Adventures In Post-Production

      July 12, 2012, 12:36 pm
      Around 2010, while preparing for a 31-city tour with Clay Blackmore and my business partner Jeff Medford, I discovered Tiffen Dfx post-production filters. To be honest, at first impression, I wasn't drawn to this system — I was pretty obsessed with Apple's Color, and doing color correction right inside Adobe Premiere.

      There are many infographics out there, but none for film editors. So I teamed up with Nina from Nina's EDL and created one. Enjoy!

      Adobe CS5 Education DVD Review

      April 29, 2011, 12:22 pm
      The future of education in the field of film and television is going to be extremely interesting. I've been teaching film editing for a few years now and one thing that is constantly a problem is time. For example, in the class I am about to begin teaching Monday, I have a total of 42 hours to teach everything I can about post. Not just editing, not just sound, not just FX but everything! This includes technology, techniques and theories.

      I was on a site that was showing google map markings of film locations and they were missing Battleship Potemkin. So I searched for Odessa Steps and here's what I found.

      Editing's Future is Unwritten

      August 31, 2010, 1:16 pm
      So, you’ve viewed The Arcade Fire video directed by Chris Milk and edited, yes edited, by Livio Sanchez. When I first viewed this music video my mouth fell to the floor, when I viewed it again I couldn’t help but think about Ronald Bergan’s biography about Sergei Eisenstein titled: Eisenstein: A Life in Conflict. In this book there is a brief an idea Eisenstein had about how viewers should view the screen.
