Guild’s Newest Craftspeople Are Versatile

November 12, 2010, 12:05 PM

https://www.editorsguild.com/magazine.cfm?ArticleI...

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...

POST PRODUCTION WEEK POST 3: LOVE YOUR KEYBOARD

I’ve spoken about speed in the last two posts and how vitally important it is to being a better editor. It’s not just the ability to knock jobs off quickly (though this is of course very important from a business standpoint). There’s a degree to which editing is never really completed, you just down tools at the point where you’re as happy as you can hope to be, given the circumstances. Working fast means...

Ripple Tool (Roll Tool in Avid)

I’ve been editing on non-linear systems for 12 years. I know both Avid and Final Cut. Each time I learned the process of editing on these platforms I somehow skipped trimming. It wasn’t until I re-learned each NLE that I started to grasp trimming. Once you get clips marked and into the timeline you should never go back to the original clip. All adjustment should be made in the timeline.
