The world has changed to the point where virtually anyone who really wants to can grab a camera and some editing software and create their own film and tv content. As a filmmaker, videographer, or film/tv editor you probably know how to push the buttons on your editing system of choice. Let’s face it, any trained monkey can push buttons.

Word on a big sale in the post-production industry seems to have broken Labor Day evening that Blackmagic Design is buying da Vinci.

Evan’s Brain Dump is a film editing site almost as much for my benefit as for anyone else’s. During the course of a film, I invariably try new workflows, come up with solutions or workarounds to technical problems, or learn a nifty trick that warrants a bit of publicity.

My friend James Gardiner wrote an interesting post "Are large Post Houses a sunset industry?" and it set me thinking. Now James is writing from an Australian perspective and "large post house" and "boutique" post house have quite different expectations of size than the Australian context. (For example, Alpha Dogs in Burbank bill themselves as a "boutique" post house but in Sydney or Melbourne they’d be one of the larger post houses.)

The more we move away from tape as a way to get in and out of an Avid — and the more we move to HD — the more people start to wonder what the assistant’s role is. Assistants used to have primary responsibility for input and output. Of course, that’s just one part of the job, but it’s a key part.
