      Editor Brian Kates Goes Boating

      January 31, 2010, 8:27 am
      Showcasing films at the Sundance Film Festival is becoming par for the course for veteran editor Brian Kates. In his eighth trip to Park City for the 2010 fest, Kates saw his latest project Jack Goes Boating—a film from first-time director and Academy Award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman—get its world premiere.

      Trailer: Trash or Treasure Part 2

      January 30, 2010, 8:27 am
      Most of us have contradictory attitude toward trailers. Trailers are a bonus - we get to see a part of another film - for the price of seeing the movie we just paid for. They help us get in the mood for the feature. We can use them to reject a movie and save ourselves time and money. They can also be refreshers, helping us relive and remember a movie.

      Our story so far: Our intrepid editor and geek just spent about $7000 on a new editing computer. To try and save money, he bought the HP Z800 without a DVD drive or video card. When he finally tries to install the BluRay burner...)

      Stock Footage... Without Matching Code

      January 29, 2010, 8:23 am
      If you follow me on twitter (twitter.com/comebackshane) then you might have seen me vent my frustration from time to time about getting stock footage masters without matching timecode. Here’s what happens. You are editing a show and need to use some stock footage...

      Spice up Titles with Video

      Sometimes the good, old title with static text just doesn’t cut it. In this episode, we’ll make the text be another layer of video.

      The Sopranos: Killer Cuts

      January 28, 2010, 8:21 am
      HBO's The Sopranos has unnerved and delighted audiences with engrossing tales of dysfunctional wiseguys and their codependent families. From season one, veteran A.C.E. editors, Sidney Wolinsky, Conrad Gonzalez and William Stich, have been cutting this controversial drama. After the current fourth season - which is shooting on 35mm but is cablecast in HD - is finished they will have collectively cut 52 episodes of The Sopranos from over five million feet of footage.

      Finally back to P2

      January 28, 2010, 8:20 am
      After working with HDV for just over a year, I am finally working with Panasonic P2 again. I was finally able to convince my boss to shoot some recreations with the P2 Varicam. We were able to do this because his normal shooters were busy, and he wanted to see what all the hullabaloo was all about. Sure, we’d be mixing this footage with the bulk of a program that was shot on HDV, captured as ProRes, but because of the style of this recreation, it should stand out fine.

      Trailers: Trash or Treasure

      January 27, 2010, 8:20 am
      As a digital editing systems trainer in the 90s and 00s, I enjoyed training and demoing for all types of editors. For a session, day, or week I got to inhabit their worlds and see firsthand their unique challenges, methods, and triumphs. None surprised me more than a veteran trailer editor. So this post and the next will be devoted to the joys of trailer editing and the works of the always uncredited trailer editors.
