To The Aotg.com Community,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce we will no longer be updating Aotg.com. Back in 2007, when we started, there was a lack of access to information about film, television, and commercial editing. We wanted to fix that by creating a central location for content about editing to be stored.

Since then, we've watched the amount of content about editing on the internet grow exponentially. We've also watched social media tools come and go with that growth. Does anyone remember Google Wave!? These social media tools changed how people access and search for media and information. People tend to turn to Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, and Instagram for their news and information, and those are all great tools to promote your sites, but as a site that aggregates links to other sites for users, it just doesn't work for us.

We will keep the site live but archive the ability to add links and comments. We will keep our database live with the links for those who desire to use it to search for editing information and research.

Our podcast, The Cutting Room, will move over to the Filmmakeru.com website and will continue to be a place for interviews with editors and other film professionals.

Everyone who worked for Aotg.com loved what we created and are proud that we could help so many editors find content that spoke to them.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the various post events worldwide in the coming years!

Yours truly,
Gordon Burkell

Oscar Countdown: Day 16: Film Editing

April 9, 2021, 08:48 AM

https://www.nwitimes.com/entertainment/movies/osca...

The American Cinema Editors won't hand out their awards for another week. Then we might get a great clue for the Oscar winner. But right now, there are two easily deserving winners: "The Trial of the Chicago 7," which has to go back and forth from present to flashbacks and do it seamlessly enough to not lose us, and "Sound of Metal," which is a little more linear, but has other challenges in the way of incorporating the sound design into things. "Nomadland" could be a threat, just because it's l...

Niv Adiri Applies NUGEN Audio’s Halo Upmix

Acclaimed sound designer and re-recording mixer Niv Adiri has chosen NUGEN Audio’s Halo Upmix to create surround 5.1 versions of the music and sound effects on a wide range of cinema projects. Adiri most recently used Halo Upmix on the current film “T2 Trainspotting.” With Halo Upmix, he was able to work from stereo source tracks to deliver a 5.1 mix that was true to the original sound of the music, but also sounded ideal in a range of surround listening environments.

Interview with 12 Years a Slave Editor Joe Walker

March 18, 2014, 09:34 PM

It’s not often that Hollywood’s stars publicly recognize the great stewardship that an editor of a film has of their performance. But it’s a long journey between what an actor emotes in front of a camera and the reception of that performance by an audience. The director certainly has a strong influence on that performance, but the editor (with the director’s guidance) is the final gatekeeper of the performance the audience sees and the context in which it’s seen.
