      Animation isn't Kids' Work

      Here's a wonderful seaside stop-motion video made using three smartphones to make the overhead shots. The behind-the-scenes story includes some words from the editor and illuminates the extensive pre-planning and choreographing of effort of the producers and crew who worked non-stop through the night to create this short.

      How you say Film Editing 101: Great Cuts Every Filmmaker and Movie Lover Must Know in Turkish? We'll all find out when the book comes out in Turkish in 2012.

      Didn't come out the way I voted but I was happy with the winners (see below) in the editing category I voted in (Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Miniseries or a Movie) - whom I scored 2 (out of five). I thought the premiere Sherlock Holmes episode, "A Study in Pink" exemplified modern editing...

      Susan Perla, CBS news editor, reported on her 16-hour days following the obliteration of the World Trade Center: The images that I could not air were pretty awful. I do think about some of the footage and it disturbs me. I hope that as I work with people, I can bring humanness to any aspect...

      Summertime and some more Riffs on Bad Editing from

      September 7, 2011, 3:22 pm
      Here are a few more riffs on bad editing from an anonymous editor who watched the 197 episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000), a comedy series from Minnesota's twin cities that ran from 1988-1999 mostly on Comedy Central and is now available on DVD. The editor's comments are on the first line in purple as...

      Appraising titles and credits

      August 16, 2011, 8:58 am
      I picked movies and mini-series for my judging category for the upcoming 2011 Emmy's. This is the most time-consuming category to judge since you're required to watch the entire show but I wanted to see Mildred Pierce and a few other shows that I'd missed. I'll blog about the show I chose for best editing...

      August 4, 2011, 4:06 am
      These are thanks to an anonymous editor who watched all the 197 episodes Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K), a comedy series from Minnesota's twin cities that ran from 1988-1999 mostly on Comedy Central and is now available on DVD. The editor's comments are on the first line in purple as he (I'm assuming) watches the...
