      The ipad, Editing, My Book and Delays

      February 12, 2010, 8:58 am
      Long time readers of this blog will realize that it has been a long time — since I’ve posted. There are some very good reasons for that, not the least of which is that my new book was being written, rewritten, rewritten again, and published — all of which required a time sucking amount of work. All of which I’m thrilled about.

      I AM AN IDIOT! I am a moron! I made a STUPID mistake! What incompetence! What lack of mental ability was I suffering? A complete brain-fart! GAH, I feel stupid. But hey, we all make mistakes sometimes, right?

      The Secret to a Great Video

      February 12, 2010, 8:56 am
      I learned a long time ago that without great audio, all those great pictures are just Ok. Audio is an incredibly important part of the storytelling process. For the most part the movie theater experience visually has remained relatively unchanged. A projector put up the movie on the big screen.

      A few years back, I had a major F#(k up with my server and lost my old blog posts. DVguru had/has a link to a post I put up on Final Cut Pro shortcuts.

      Avid Screencast - Secondary Color Correction

      February 11, 2010, 8:53 am
      Secondary color correction is applying one correction to the image as a whole, but a different correction to a specific portion of the image. This can be necessary in a lot of situations, mostly when you need a different treatment of skin tones compared to the rest of your image.

      Film Editor Alex Rodriguez gets Animated

      February 11, 2010, 8:52 am
      After gaining Oscar attention for his work with director Alfonso Cuar??n on dystopian science-fiction drama Children of Men, Alex Rodr??guez worked on a couple of smaller projects before venturing into uncharted territory. After editing Gael Garc??a Bernal's directorial debut, Deficit, and the Bernal-starring Rudo y Cursi, Rodr??guez signed up for something completely different — Planet 51, a big-budget animated film produced in Madrid by Ilion Animation Studios, Handmade Films, and Antena 3...

      Getting Footage Before the Internet

      February 11, 2010, 8:52 am
      I posted this piece back in June 2008 after I had cleaned out a closet and found my old Highlander: Uncut editing package. It was cutting edge at the time but unfortunately this package is no longer for sale. Long before there was the opencut.org project, cheap digital camcorders and even Final Cut Pro there was always the question of where could you get footage for digital non-linear editing.

      What Makes for Good Editing?

      February 10, 2010, 8:49 am
      Compared to many of the other Oscar categories, "Best Film Editing" is often a tough one to predict. With "Best Cinematography," "Best Art Direction," and "Best Costume Design," for instance, you can clearly see how each nominee demonstrated a mastery of their craft and set themselves apart from their peers. With editing, however, aptly called "The Invisible Art" of cinema, what’s been left out is just as important as what ends up in the final cut.

      The Nominees of 09'

      February 10, 2010, 8:49 am
      For Oscar-nominated picture editors, 2009 may have been the year of the level playing field. Two lower-budgeted independent films––Neil Daniels’ Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire, edited by Joe Klotz, and Kathryn Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker, edited by Bob Murawski and Chris Innis––stand at opposite ends of the budget and conceptual spectrum from James Cameron’s lushly mounted and groudbreaking Avatar, edited by Cameron, A.C.E., Stephen Rivkin, A.C.E. and John Refoua, A.C.E...
