Everyone in filmmaking has seen Space Odyssey. And everyone remembers HAL and Dave. Probably the monolith. And certainly the Jupiter sequence. Except editors. Editors naturally remember THE cut. Maybe the ultimate, most famous one. Ever. Bone to spaceship.
I learned my craft in the digital age. Making my first cuts on a consumer PC that I had previously used to do my homework on. Digital cuts. Slicing 1's and 0's.
Last week I finished one of the toughest to edit projects of this year.
I don't favorize the fact that I am starting this blog with a post not about the inner workings of film history's most profound match cuts or the philosophical implications of the anti-Editing of the long take, but about a rather technical topic. However, if Editing were in fact swordsmanship, this post is about a new, potentially sharper sword.
So I got a blog now. Good times!
