      Data Management & Procedure Best Practices

      September 18, 2014, 4:45 am
      Data Management In principle, data management sounds simple: you download the camera media, put it on a hard drive and back it up. In reality, it is a process fraught with danger and rife with chances to mess up badly. Handling the recorded media is an enormous responsibility; a single click can erase an entire...

      Avoiding Pitfalls in Production that Affect Post

      September 16, 2014, 4:43 am
      Workflow Best Practices When making critical pre-production decisions about the type of camera and workflow to utilize, a good place to start is determining both your editing format and the eventual exhibition format for the project. For a web or mobile audience, shooting 4K is overkill and will result in an expensive post-production process for...

      Transmedia Storytelling – Weaving the Universe

      August 26, 2014, 9:53 am
      Weaving the Universe Weaving the universe relates to the fact that any successful transmedia intellectual property is like a tapestry – many threads that are well-woven to create a beautiful pattern. This points to the concept that really successful intellectual properties tell many stories that weave into a larger picture or larger understanding of the...

      Avid’s ScriptSync – An Overview

      August 21, 2014, 8:55 am
      If you have a script, you can import it into Media Composer. With the script imported, it is then possible to link specific shots and takes to exact portions of the script. This is similar in appearance to a traditionally marked-up script from a script supervisor. Actually, you or an assistant editor can use those...

      Dialogue Editing – The Trouble with Digital Pict

      August 12, 2014, 4:40 am
      In theory, a picture file in a computer will flawlessly sync with a DAW session playing from the same computer. Sometimes it does. Other times, picture or sound will be systematically delayed. Or sync may be spot on one time you hit play, and soft the next. Or worst of all, sound and image may...

      I ask every single filmmaker I meet the same question: why did you want to make your film? The answers vary from filmmaker to filmmaker, from film school to no film school and from film to film. The most common answer is to make money. Next is fame (or to use the film as a...

      Film Grain in Postproduction – Bringing Texture

      July 29, 2014, 4:39 am
      A form of postproduction that can be applied to CinemaDNG files is film grain. For some, the idea of shooting in raw reflects in some ways an approach to filmmaking that harkens back to the days of working on film. What is lost in digital filmmaking involves the loss of texture. Film grain is one...

      Shot Transitions When Editing Dialogue Tracks: Bas

      July 10, 2014, 4:35 am
      Moving smoothly from shot to shot is what makes a scene believable. Managing noise is what makes a scene bearable. Keeping processing to a minimum is what makes a scene natural. Balance these competing interests and a scene will work. There are a few overarching principles that are common to all edits from one shot...
