If you think that unwrapping the mysteries of transcoding file-based camera footage provides its challenges, you will find the post-production workflow on Avatar either very scary, or a completely visionary model of things to come. Learning and creating as needs arose, picture editors James Cameron, A.C.E.; John Refoua, A.C.E.; and Stephen Rivkin, A.C.E.; as well as assistant editor Jason Gaudio and producer Jon Landau, have created a unique process that was centered completely on director...

Carol Littleton, A.C.E., has never been one to sit back and wait for something to happen. Instead, she makes things happen. For example, as a novice film editor in the late 1970s, she did not wait around patiently, hoping for jobs to come her way. Rather, Littleton took charge of her career by forming her own commercial editing company. Experiencing first-hand the difficulty of breaking into what was virtually a closed shop, she did not spend her time complaining about the status quo, but...
