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!

I am back in the post production world of Assistant Editing at JOHLT Productions, a company formally known as Edelman Productions. After a half decade of working in TV advertising sales I realized my true passion was to spend the rest of my life working in the production side of the house. So, I decided to go back to what I was doing before trying to become either a freelance or full time video editor. This was something I felt I could do for a very long time and not have any regret I was in it.#assistant#editing#video#film editing

While many cinematic title sequences suffer from a sense of autopilot, the main title for Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant keeps you guessing. Taking on the thrust of a children’s nightmare, the resulting aesthetic is innocent but deftly tuned with motifs of fear — a surefire way to take the edge off the sweetness.#assistant#title#vfx#visual effects#cirque du freak#vampire
