It is often considered that necessity is the mother of invention. For the motion picture industry, that might be modified to read "Emerging technologies are the mother of invention." In other words, how we work, and the creativity that results from these endeavors, are highly dependent upon the palette of available picture editorial, sound editorial and re-recording mixing tools.

I have always been envious of those who came to the business because of their love and passion for films. I was born into the film industry and didn’t appreciate my proximity. My father, Larry Heath, was a film editor. The studio was not a mythical place where movie magic happened. It was the place where my dad went to work. As a child, I would join him in the cutting room––more as a parenting responsibility than an opportunity for a father to pass on his craft. I enjoyed the special...

Why should a Final Cut editor even bother with this book?" asks Larry Jordan. "Does the world need another book on Adobe Photoshop or Apple Final Cut Studio?" Jordan, as the author of said book, responds to his own question in the affirmative. Why? Because editors have three essential goals. First is to complete projects on deadline and on budget. Second is to produce quality work that meets the client’s specifications. Third, and not least of all, is to keep the work interesting for...

During a recent double over-nighter I found myself thinking about workflows. And the nitty gritty stuff too, like how frequently people version their project files, how they name their assets, and how they arrange their folder structures. I would really love to hear from anyone about the nuts and bolts of how you go about "going about your business" I know this is probably boring stuff to most people, but it can make or break a workplace. Here’s a list of other possible things to talk about.

Like everyone else, I’ve started a blog, gotten into a blog, regularly contributed to a blog, added to the blog, expanded the blog, touted the blog and ultimately...forgotten the blog. Actually, I never forgot about it and I’ve put in entries now and again, but working for Adobe, you’ve got to focus on what’s most important and sadly, though I love it, the blog languished and the petals fell off of the blossom.Well, I’m not out of the woods yet and I can’t remember ever being more busy...
