To The Community,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce we will no longer be updating 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 website and will continue to be a place for interviews with editors and other film professionals.

Everyone who worked for 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 Founder

With the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League on HBO Max, I recently had a chance to talk to three of the VFX artists who made the new cut a reality: Weta Digital's Visual Effects Supervisors Kevin Andrew Smith and Anders Langlands as well as Animation Supervisor Simeon Duncombe. To realize Zack Snyder’s vision, these artists not only had to redo footage that had been released in 2017, but also to complete visual effects for scenes that had been shot in 2016/2017. This in addition to a ne...

The power of editing never ceases to amaze me – actors, writers, DPs, designers, all offer incredible contributions to a story, but it's the editor who takes that heady cocktail of ideas, creativity, drama, misfires, failures, surprises, technical problems etc etc that happened on set / location, and makes it all work as best it can.
