  • We've Arrived!

    We've Arrived!

    June 11, 2009, 1:58 pm
    After twelve hours on a bus we've arrived in New York for Edit Fest. It was quite the ride, it all started when we got into Buffalo and I was pulled off the bus! They accused me of not having a ticket. The problem stemmed from the fact that Canada and the US weren't discussing the new ticket structure Greyhound Canada has implemented. After that every stop we made someone would come on board and talk to me about this ticket. No one, I repeat, no one, not even the other passengers had this ticket! Calls were made, tickets negotiated etc.

    I arrived, I grabbed myself dinner and now have to fix this ticket thing! Tomorrow I interview Michael Berenbaum, 3PM.

      Editing's Future is Unwritten

      August 31, 2010, 1:16 pm
      So, you’ve viewed The Arcade Fire video directed by Chris Milk and edited, yes edited, by Livio Sanchez. When I first viewed this music video my mouth fell to the floor, when I viewed it again I couldn’t help but think about Ronald Bergan’s biography about Sergei Eisenstein titled: Eisenstein: A Life in Conflict. In this book there is a brief an idea Eisenstein had about how viewers should view the screen.

      ACE has sent us links to the photos of the LA Edit Fest. View it as a slide show it's a little easer to go through. BUT Realize there are a ton of photos.

      Joel Cox talked at edit fest about his process with Clint Eastwood. It's 6 Minutes and 35 seconds and it opens with Alan Heim talking about John Hughes recent passing and goes into the first question of the feature panel. Maryann Brandon, A.C.E. answered the question first and Joel references it at one point. You'll be able to hear the full talk in the coming weeks. While you wait, enjoy this 6 minute piece.
