    Editing Tip: Mixing it up with Split Edits

    February 6, 2011, 9:56 am
    It’s such an elegant little modifier: split. Psychology has the split personality, baseball the split-fingered fastball and the rest of us are left balancing our waistlines against the caloric lure of the sublime banana split.



    In video, the term takes on a new meaning when you sit down to craft a video program. Here we enter the realm of the split edit, a technique that, once mastered, can add new levels of interest and audience engagement to your video editing efforts.

      Zimmer on Widows Score

      November 21, 2018, 10:24 am
      Hans Zimmer has “a strange history” with “Widows.” Early in his career he worked for composer Stanley Myers, including on the 1983 BBC miniseries that would inspire the 2018 film. “I remember thinking at the time this was a revolutionary bit of storytelling,” he recalls. It concerned “the sort of casual brutality women have to endure on a daily basis.” He felt the series could “change the way we treat women,” so when Steve McQueen approached him about scoring this reimagining, he leapt at the opportunity because “things had not gotten better.” Watch our exclusive video interview above.

      Sennheiser Memory Mic: the “wireless” mic/body

      November 20, 2018, 10:01 am
      The Sennheiser Memory Mic is a “wireless” mic/body recorder that auto-synchronizes audio that it records with the companion app that can shoot video. In fact, the device hardware is much better than the first version of the companion app for both Android and iOS, so Sennheiser will hopefully add the missing features to the apps. Then it could become the dream solution for today’s producers who want to to produce a Candid Camera type show. Allen Funt first created the Candid project for radio as The Candid Microphone in 1947, before launching the Candid Camera TV show in 1948. Ahead you’ll hear and watch Sennheiser Memory Mic audio/video recordings and learn what’s missing (and wrong) from the first version of the software.

      Improve Your Masks with Hue, Saturation, and Lumin

      November 20, 2018, 5:48 am
      Masking is one of the fundamentals of video editing, but masks used in isolation have a lot of drawbacks and limitations. The most efficient way to improve the quality of any mask is by using hue, saturation, and luminance qualifiers.

      Composer Hans Zimmer and Editor Joe Walker

      November 20, 2018, 5:47 am
      Widows is a different type of film for director Steve McQueen. Known for terrific dramas such as Shame, Hunger, and the Academy Award-winning 12 Years A Slave, McQueen’s films have never been about mainstream appeal. That’s about to change. Viola Davis leads the ensemble of Widows, a heist-film that includes a group of women who must complete a robbery to survive. A debt was left to them by their late husbands who did not complete a heist of their own.

      The Sound of First Man

      Academy Award and Grammy-winning composer Justin Hurwitz, sound supervisor and re-recording mixer Ai-Ling Lee, sound supervisor Mildred Iatrou, re-recording mixer Frank Montaño, re-recording mixer Jon Taylor, and Academy Award-winning picture editor Tom Cross discuss how the film’s documentary look (it was filmed in Super-16mm) affected the approach to sound and music, how the sound elements contributed to the understanding of how dangerous the early space flights were, and why it was important to focus on the sound of an errant fly in the space capsule.
