    Avid Agility and Media Composer 5.5

    March 23, 2011, 6:05 pm
    Some of you may be wondering whether I’m planning an update to "Avid Agility" for Media Composer 5.5. The answer is yes. It’ll be a relatively minor update, with changes confined to the new features (mainly Find, PhraseFind, the Transition Tool and Legacy/Classic Trim Mode).

      Editor Cara Silverman on The Greatest

      January 20, 2009, 6:59 am
      For The Greatest, the new Pierce Brosnan/Susan Sarandon drama in competition at this year's Sundance Film Festival, editor Cara Silverman found a new way of working — based in Los Angeles while the production shot in New York, Silverman let her assistant run the Avid Adrenaline while she cut footage on a laptop loaded with the software version of Avid Media Composer. Being untethered to a heavy desktop system has a freeing effect on creativity, too (especially on low-budget films, which...

      The Eastwood Sanction

      January 19, 2009, 6:57 am
      Clint Eastwood has a fondness for editing––and editors. According to the filmmaker, he has worked with only a half-dozen editors in the 38 years he’s been directing motion pictures, starting with Carl Pingitore, who passed away in January 2008. The two met on Don Siegel’s 1971 film The Beguiled, and Pingitore edited Play Misty for Me, Eastwood’s feature directorial debut, that same year. It was the only film they did together.

      The Emotional Rhythm of Joel Cox and Gary Roach

      January 19, 2009, 6:56 am
      French composer Maurice Ravel said, "We should always remember that sensitiveness and emotion constitute the real content of a work of art." Few words better express the filmmaking vision of iconic actor, director, producer and composer Clint Eastwood, a vision that is realized in no small part by Eastwood’s picture editors––Oscar winner Joel Cox, A.C.E., and Gary Roach. In 2008, the three partnered on a pair of deeply affecting emotional dramas––Universal’s recent Changeling, the true...

      Posting 'Naked'

      January 19, 2009, 6:55 am
      There’s an old adage in show business that if you want to ensure success, avoid working with kids and animals. Don’t tell that to picture editor Craig Cobb and supervising sound editor Louis Bertini, MPSE, who help post one of Nickelodeon’s hit shows, The Naked Brothers Band.
