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!

For writer/director Bryan Buckley, it was time to do something different. A commercial director and co-founder of the production company Hungry Man, Buckley has put Martin Scorsese and Suri together in the back of cab for Apple, Ellen DeGeneres together with a motley crew of wild and barnyard animals for American Express, and some 40 spots into that precious airtime during the Super Bowl. But his latest work, "Asad," a narrative short film about the struggles of a young Somali refugee...#color#colour#colorist#chris ryan#asad

We've just found a really excellent video tutorial about Blender's colour correction tools. It's not just a good lesson in colour manipulation: it reminds us what a powerful tool Blender really is...#color#colour#correction#blender

This is the sort of question that vexes film and TV people because we're torn between two things: the need to follow conventions, so that the audience can follow what's going on, and the desire to be original. Or, to put it another way, we're a bunch of insecure fashion victims who lack the courage of our own convictions.#color#post#colour#night

Dale Grahn, who is what used to be called a Colour Timer in the days when there was no digital colour processing, has created the colour "look" of some seminal films of the last couple of decades: Saving Private Ryan, Gladiator and Munich. Having Stephen Spielberg on your resume is obviously a good thing.#nle#colour#redshark

We can't bring you every showreel that we see here at RedShark. Many of them are amazing but, honestly, that's what YouTube is for. But what we do like to do is bring you clips that illustrate a point that we think is important, and this one does it nicely.#grading#color#colour#showreel#redshark

Avid Media Composer 6.5 has a number of new features that it shares with Avid’s step-up in terms of colour management, Symphony 6.5. The new features are mainly situated in the domain of audio support, better file relinking management, codec support, and advanced features. But I was mainly interested in Symphony 6.5 because of its colour editing capabilities.#avid#nle#color#colour#symphony

How often do people really take the time to explain the real basics? With stuff like colour correction, while you can and should rely on your eyes and a good, colour-calibrated monitoring system, you also need to make sure that your graded output is technically OK, or it might be rejected by your client...#colour#correction

Has a director ever asked you if you can fix a few bad shots? Have you struggled to make a final sequence look better? Steve Hullfish brought the art of color correction from the dark arts to the light of day in 2002 with his book Color Correction for Digital Video: Using Desktop Tools to Perfect Your Image (now in its 2nd Edition), followed in 2008 by The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction (2nd Edition just released). At this special Editors' Lounge, Steve Hullfish gave...#color#colour#colorist#steve hullfish#correction
