  • What can we take away from the TV Panel

    What can we take away from the TV Panel

    August 8, 2009, 5:13 pm
    Before we start, I've been trying to update my Twitter feed and it doesn't seem to be taking it. I know there was a Dos attack on them earlier in the week but hopfully I can get some stuff up for everyone.

    Before we start, I've been trying to update my Twitter feed and it doesn't seem to be taking it. I know there was a Dos attack on them earlier in the week but hopfully I can get some stuff up for everyone.

    Onto what we can take away from the TV Panel that took place yesterday. Malcolm Jamieson came from an artistic background where he would do what is called time based art pieces and this informed his editing because he has to think of a scenes surroundings and a scene and how that affects a moment. He suggest, think about what's occuring in the scene and how that can affect the characters and the motivation for cuts. Malcolm said to also look for what moves you when watching the rushes because there's something in there that can affect the audience.

    Karen Stern encouraged everyone to cut whatever you can get your hands on. If your trying to simply cut for features you might miss opportunities. No one knows who the next Lucas or Spielberg is and if you don't cut their short then you won't cut their feature.

    Lynne Willingham mentioned the need to be diplomatic in your relationships with the producer and the director. Remember it's an art piece.

      Adventures In Post-Production

      July 12, 2012, 12:36 pm
      Around 2010, while preparing for a 31-city tour with Clay Blackmore and my business partner Jeff Medford, I discovered Tiffen Dfx post-production filters. To be honest, at first impression, I wasn't drawn to this system — I was pretty obsessed with Apple's Color, and doing color correction right inside Adobe Premiere.

      Adobe CS5 Education DVD Review

      April 29, 2011, 12:22 pm
      The future of education in the field of film and television is going to be extremely interesting. I've been teaching film editing for a few years now and one thing that is constantly a problem is time. For example, in the class I am about to begin teaching Monday, I have a total of 42 hours to teach everything I can about post. Not just editing, not just sound, not just FX but everything! This includes technology, techniques and theories.
