The Editors Guild held a roundtable discussion on industry trends in sound post-production over the summer––and heard an earful. Passionate professionals described how shrinking post-production budgets and a lack of understanding about the sound post workflow have created difficult situations for editors and mixers alike, as well as threatened the integrity of the creative process.

Created by former Sopranos writer Matthew Weiner, AMC’s acclaimed Mad Men unveils the curiously alluring world of Don Draper, a top New York advertising man in the 1960s who has built his life around a series of lies. Nominated for 49 Emmys, and collecting 13, Mad Men has won both Outstanding Drama Series at the Emmy Awards and Best Television Series – Drama at the Golden Globes for the last three years in a row. As the fourth season was winding down, Editors Guild Magazine spoke with several

What do NBC’s 30 Rock and HBO’s Bored to Death have in common? Both are award-winning half-hour comedies that poke fun at their creators/head writers/executive producers (Tina Fey and Jonathan Ames, respectively). Both just had their season premieres in September. More interesting from a post-production perspective, however, is that both shows are cut by the editing team of Ken Eluto, A.C.E., and Meg Reticker, who work 11 months out of the year on the two series.

It's funny how it has taken director Edward Zwick and editor Steven Rosenblum, A.C.E., eight films together to return again to their thirtysomething TV roots from the 1980s. But that’s exactly what they’ve done with Love and Other Drugs, a romantic comedy about the cutthroat world of pharmaceutical sales and the rise of Viagra in the 1990s, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway, which opens November 24 through 20th Century Fox.

Posting ARRI ALEXA’s ProRes clips is going to follow many of the established workflows. The fact that it’s a new camera doesn’t really make much difference. The camera generates direct-to-edit ProRes media with embedded timecode and reel IDs. These are self-contained files without a folder hierarchy to mess you up, like with P2 or XDCAM. These media files are immediately ready to edit with most modern...

Without a doubt, the greatest challenge for HDSLR shooters has been editorial. I recently read of another new software that’s supposed to magically make your HDSLR footage palatable for the finicky Final Cut Pro. Why you would ever want to put yourself through the misery and expense of purchasing an additional piece of software that takes hours to work and may crash your computer just so you can cut with FCP is beyond me. The good news is, now you don’t have to...

"Bring the work back into the cutting room" is the mantra of Terry Kelley, A.C.E. To save both money and time producing television shows and movies, picture editor Kelley has established a new workflow procedure that has proven successful on two televison series—Showtime's Brotherhood (2006-2008) and the conspiracy thriller Rubicon, which just finished its first season on AMC.

The recent merger to bring IATSE Local 683’s 1,100 film and video laboratory technicians and cinetechnicians into the Motion Picture Editors Guild, Local 700, was more than just a strategically sound business move for both locals, although it was certainly that. After all, putting all post-production classifications under a single IATSE umbrella was probably overdue, given the industry's digital revolution. Thus, the merger happened with an eye toward making Local 700 "an all-post union,"...

I’ve already likened editing to lego in an earlier post, moving blocks around, sticking them together till they make something that works. Jan Bednarz, documentary filmmaker and partner in Buzz Films, is doing a project called the 10th Lego Master, about Duncan Titmarsh, an adult fan of lego (AFOL). In Jan’s teaser film Duncan shows us his lego shed...
