      FCP-NES Nintendo Editing System

      March 15, 2010, 12:03 pm
      This project came simultaneously with the cheapskate version of the creative controller. I decided to do both, because they have different results and levels of difficulty. To sum up the premise: in an edit I want to give the reviewer the ability to stop and start playback and scroll through the edit using an old NES controller.

      Coates of Many Colors

      March 14, 2010, 12:02 pm
      Few picture editors other than Anne V. Coates, A.C.E., have collaborated with such a wide variety of directors over a time span well surpassing half a century. With an editing career of 63 years––and still counting––Coates arguably has been working in cutting rooms longer than anyone else in film history, recently surpassing the impressive longevity of legendary editor Margaret Booth’s work history. And she’s not about to stop now; she’s currently considering two projects.

      A Few Good Editors Enist For HBO

      March 14, 2010, 12:01 pm
      Even before Pearl Harbor was attacked, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill had agreed on a "Europe First" strategy that placed primary emphasis on the defeat of the European Axis powers should Japan enter the war, a plan that continued even after December 7, 1941. In similar fashion, HBO is following that same strategy. Nine years after Band of Brothers’ "Easy Company" fought its way across France, the Netherlands and Germany, executive producers...

      Hollywood's Skilled Surgeon

      March 14, 2010, 12:00 pm
      Viera’s book is studded with great anecdotes about Thalberg’s participation in the editing process, as well as historic editors. There is a wonderful story about legendary MGM editor Margaret Booth’s first day at work. This was in 1919, before the formation of MGM, when Thalberg and Mayer were working together at Louis B. Mayer Productions. At this time, Mayer’s studio was at 3800 Mission Road in Los Angeles, located adjacent to William Selig’s Zoo, where Mayer had rented space from the...

      March 13, 2010, 11:59 am
      Working in the editorial department on Alice in Wonderland, JC Bond was the point of first contact for principal photography, assembling scenes as quickly as director Tim Burton could shoot them. He was also the gatekeeper for the film's extensive visual-effects content, which he received and analyzed before it was cut into the movie. Working on a team led by film editor Chris Lebenzon, ACE, Bond made sure thousands of pieces of content fell into place as expected in the editorial pipeline...
