      Why Contacts Are Such a Big Deal

      April 23, 2012, 9:31 am
      How many times have you heard it said that he (or she) is "connected"? You should know that being connected only means only that he knows people, or knows people who know people, who can help them. It doesn't mean that the person is any more important than you are. The connection may just mean...

      Walter Murch's simple approach to rule of 6

      April 2, 2012, 3:18 pm
      Born in 1943 in New York City, Walter Murch is widely recognized as one of the leading authorities in the field of film editing, as well as one of the few editors equally active in both picture and sound. A graduate of the University of Southern California's School of Cinema-Television, he received his early sound...

      It's Easier to Say No! But there are Risks!

      April 2, 2012, 3:18 pm
      Every job in the movie business is about finding and securing material and talent (creative elements) for a project; securing funding, and supervising the creative, logistical, and financial execution of the project; finding a way to get the finished project in front of an audience or finding a way to get an audience in front...

      Character Driven vs. Plot Driven

      March 20, 2012, 3:47 pm
      Character Driven vs. Plot Driven You will often hear films described as either character-driven or plot-driven. I think this is a false dichotomy. All films are character driven. All films have plot. These labels tell something, it's true, about emphasis. And, for the most part, it's become something of a commonplace that smaller, independent films...

      Plug-Ins 101

      March 3, 2012, 9:01 am
      A plug-in is a mini-application that plugs into or expands a host application (like After Effects), allowing it to do more. When trying to explain this to a friend who does not work in postproduction, he came up with a car analogy. You can buy a basic model of a car and upgrade it with...

      February 29, 2012, 10:58 pm
      Why if continuity doesn't match, performance doesn't matter: The F-Up... It's your perfect take. The actors are perfect, the light is perfect, the camera work is perfect. Everything is perfect, except in this one take, your star was holding her drink in a different hand than in any of the other shots it will need...

      Transmedia Storytelling

      February 28, 2012, 3:39 pm
      Video Editors at the Eye of the Storm. I still remember the look of horror on my boss' face when I told him I watched Terrence Malik's classic, Days of Heaven on my laptop while simultaneously surfing the web on my desktop. So much for my annual 2 Percent increase. It was then that I realized...

      How an Editor Can Shape and Sustain Story Tension

      February 17, 2012, 5:28 pm
      If a story that should be interesting is shaping up to be a bit boring, it is helpful to understand one of the key drivers behind an audience's interest: Dramatic Questions. A dramatic question is a question that implies an action and has something at stake. What does this have to do with editing? Usually...
