I connected with Adam Coleite after putting out a call for reality editors to interview on Facebook. We met up at a restaurant of his choice – a Corner Bakery in Burbank.

Directors, listen to me hear — it’s impossible to make a film by yourself. Not every idea you’re going to have is good, and not all good ideas are going to come from you.

With the release of Premiere Pro CS5 earlier this year, the topic of native editing, and more specifically, native DSLR editing has been a big one...worldwide.

But the questions I’m continually asked are, "Why does Final Cut Pro/Avid Media Composer force you to transcode? Why don’t you transcode in Premiere?"
