      Rogue One’s Random Cam, and other previs fun

      January 19, 2017, 6:14 am
      Now that we’ve all seen Rogue One five times and deconstructed the storyline, the characters and the visual effects, it’s fun to also consider how some of the iconic shots came to be. Of course, ILM and Lucasfilm’s art department crafted many of the incredible concepts, but some of the first shot designs were done by the previs team at The Third Floor.

      Seven Editorial Tips For Fine Cutting Films

      January 19, 2017, 6:14 am
      We are in the final stages of fine cutting ‘Seeing Him’, a short film written, produced by and starring Vanessa Bailey. I have stepped into the directors shoes after my good friend Catherine Arton stepped down as director, entrusting me to finish her good work. I have already spent time working with our hugely experienced editor Chris Frith but wanted a fresh opinion.

      How To Save Your Edit From Being Just "Meh"

      January 19, 2017, 6:14 am
      OK, we're a stock footage company. But one of the reasons we built this is because we saw it coming. The "it" is what's actually happening now in commercial and non-commercial videos - aerial shots. And not just Helicopter shots, but drone stock shots. You can tell by the height on most shots and the "pep" of them.
