      Letterman Countdown for editors Part 2

      September 27, 2012, 3:00 pm
      Today's post concludes the Letterman-style countdown designed to counteract the misconceptions held by way too many people. 5. Putting footage together is a no brainer. Au contraire. I, and filmmakers far greater than me, believe that editing is what set filmmaking apart from other arts. Editing mimics thought. It accomplishes this with the selection of...

      Editors and Actors: The Real Story

      September 4, 2012, 4:19 pm
      The image from the last post is a popular misconception of what editors do to actors - leave them on the cutting room floor in a heap of film. Wrong on so many levels! We cut digitally, not on film these days. We are the actor's best friend (more below). While an editor may participate...

      This is the image a lot of people have of editors. But we know better. More in next post which will look at the editor-actor relationship.

      I received an email from Linton Davies and an invitation to download his book for free for review purposes. Glad I took this UK editor up on his offer. The Editing of Star Wars: How Cutting Created a Classic offers insights to Star Wars fan boys and girls as well as professional editors. I learned...

      August 14, 2012, 3:00 pm
      I've been authoring books, blogging on this site, and writing articles for MovieMaker and other magazines: Now it's time to take my show on the road and actually interact with some people. So I've created a four-session evening course that the Community Ed wing of Santa Rosa Jr. College (in Santa Rosa, CA) has been...

      Guest Blog on File Management

      August 1, 2012, 8:06 pm
      As a regular blogger on my own website, I regularly receive offers from companies to write guest blogs. Most I reject as too "market" in tone or not "on subject" to you - my readers - or me. This post via Josh Bristol, PR Coordinator for SocialMonsters, was one of the exceptions. It details the...

      Enjoy this droll tutorial by Cooper Kingston who demonstrates how easy it would be to cut if there if there was one all-purpose edit button. His tutorial also demonstrates how imagining a renderless system should be made a reality in the future.

      The MPEG posed this question to its 6200 members as part of its 75th anniversary observation this year. See what you think of the results, published in the May edition of "CineMontage," the guild's monthly magazine: Breaking down the choices Though the picks range from 1924-2011, they're a bit heavy on the last few years...
