      I need a job!

      If you are in the post-production world, you know an assistant editor. It would be impossible not to know one. It would be the equivalent of living without oxygen. It can't be done and you don't know any one who can. Let me rephrase that. Any person just in case there is some organism out [...]

      Working with Avid is sometimes very tongue-in-cheek and the blog will now display those special moments we have with Avid in comic form. Enjoy. Kyra

      An excuse to learn

      I read this article the other day about The Hangover Part II. It mentions a lawsuit regarding a tattoo on the face of one of the character's that may need to be painted out for the release onto DVD. The Hangover Part II article Towards the end of the article, the writer wrote ".

      3D makes me sick

      June 13, 2011, 2:07 pm
      The other day I was working on a 3D show. A tad bit difficult considering I am in that small percentage of people who can't watch 3D without wanting to puke my guts out. Fortunately for me, I left the edit session with my stomach contents intact and the show finished. Working in 3D is [...]

      For the most part, when we go to work, we like what we do. Or, I would hope that we like what we do because that would be a miserable existence going back and forth to the same place not liking what we do. Having said that, each day isn't without its challenges because we [...]

      Multigrouping Thwart number 1

      June 6, 2011, 3:47 pm
      (This is going to be an ongoing post on how to avoid common pitfalls when multigrouping) Multigrouping is intense. It's the make or break part of getting promoted and moving up to being an editor. (For shows containing multigroups of course) Some people get it and some people don't. There is a lot to remember [...]

      It sux to be dead. Especially if you're a pix

      June 2, 2011, 5:57 pm
      I'm an old fashioned girl and before the days of tapeless, I was fine with tape. Sure you could get a wrinkle here and there but nothing too bad. Good thing I am not at the helm of innovation cause under my watch, we might still be on linear editing machines. To my credit [...]

      Did you want some cheese with that whine?

      May 26, 2011, 3:04 pm
      As I undoubtedly have said before, we editors are a whiny lot. I sorta embrace my urban legend reputation because it can serve its purposes. I just have to look like a whine is about to come out and that usually gets things done. Sometimes I just get an eye-roll but those are usually deserved [...]

      I'm lazy and you should be lazy too

      May 23, 2011, 3:06 pm
      Way, way, way, waywayway, way back in the day when I first started using Avid I didn't know what I was doing. (Obviously) I was lucky if I remembered to turn on both monitors because I just wasn't used to this editing monstrosity. Since then, thank goodness, my skills have improved. I always turn on [...]

      Cameras are out to get you

      May 22, 2011, 7:09 pm
      It's true.They have a personal vendetta against assistant editors. Not the camera operators mind you. The cameras themselves. I know this is going to start a long-winded dialogue that inanimate objects can't have vendettas.They aren't alive!Well, be an AE for a day and your perspective might change. I've seen tapes/discs come back from the field [...]
