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
Aotg.com Founder

The Cabin in the Woods (2011)

"Ok, I'm drawing a line in the fucking sand. Do NOT read the Latin!" — Marty. A history of violence writ in blood. Millennia of human cruelty billow out into a quiet void: torture, murder, ritual sacrifice, untold suffering, fresh coffee... Huh? The images of savage protocol and hematic ceremony are jarringly replaced by an all too familiar scene: a hot cuppa joe and the morning commute of two government employees.

Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant

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.

If you select the title in the timeline, or if the playhead is over the title, there...

Art of the Title: Halloween 3: Season of the Witch

A staticky hiss, the squeal of a synth, and a television signal struggling to resolve itself. Noticeably absent is that iconic Carpenterian theme, indicating that this will be no ordinary Halloween.
