    CinemaEditor Reviews Avid Agility

    February 21, 2011, 2:19 pm
    My special thanks to Edgar Burcksen for a great review of Avid Agility in the American Cinema Editor’s magazine, CinemaEditor. Hot off the presses, the latest issue was distributed at A.C.E.’s terrific Eddie Awards ceremony Saturday night and should be in members’ mailboxes and on select newsstands shortly. My heartfelt congratulations to all the winners and honorees, including Burcksen himself, who, along with Vincent Lo Brutto, took home the Robert Wise Award for writing about editing.

      Answering the ‘Call of the Wild’

      March 5, 2020, 8:41 pm
      As a third-generation special effects supervisor, Jeremy Hays grew-up in the movie industry, witnessing firsthand a variety of filmmaking approaches that were sometimes successful, but often times not. His own resume is diverse, ranging from Hearts in Atlantis, to The Equalizer, to Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, where he also makes a cameo as a flamethrower trainer. And for Hays, failure is always a learning experience. “On any film, what I do first is analyze the creative elements and then talk with the director, producers, or writers, to get an idea of what their focus points are,” he explains. “When designing a special effect, you want it to fail a few times in the shop before actually doing it in front of a camera. Having an effect that is 80 percent effective right out of the gate can be misleading, as that might be as far as it will ever get. Some projects that are fast paced don’t allow you time to test, so you have to tap into the experience of all those failed jobs that make you go, ‘That’s not going to work.’ Through those failures, you increase your proficiency and accuracy.”

      March 4, 2020, 1:14 pm
      Open up our 40th anniversary celebration issue, Cinefex 169, and you’ll find The Illusionists, a giant roundtable discussion in which 21 Oscar-winning visual effects supervisors debate the past, present and future of cinematic illusions. We recorded over 14 hours of interview material for the article, and inevitably some of it ended up on the cutting room floor. In this series of short blogs, we’re pleased to share a few of our favorite outtakes. To read the full roundtable, pick up your copy of Cinefex 169.
