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

Oscar-Nominated Editor Mikkel E.G. Nielsen on Giving “Sound of Metal” its Rhythm

April 25, 2021, 10:48 AM

Excitement was running high. The team behind Sound of Metal, Darius Marder’s offbeat drama about a punk rock drummer (Riz Ahmed) who faces life-changing decisions after losing his hearing, was gathered together via Zoom to watch the Oscar nomination announcements. Mikkel E.G. Nielsen, the film’s editor, was settled in front of his computer at his home in Copenhagen when the unthinkable happened. The screen went blank.

In the Academy of Arts and Sciences 93-year history, only two winners have been South Shore natives, and both hail from Quincy. Ruth Gordon won an Oscar as supporting actress in 1968 for "Rosemary's Baby." Peter Del Vecho, producer of the Disney animated princess tale "Frozen," took home the region's second statuette in 2014.

The Mac Pro promised modularity at launch. Two years later, has it delivered?

At the heart of every filmmaking decision is one question: Where is the audience in relationship to what is happening on screen? One of the most common approaches to answering this question is through subjectivity; by putting the viewer into a character’s point of view (often, quite literally), a filmmaker can shape how we emotionally absorb and viscerally react to the story unfolding on screen.

Oscar Countdown: Day 16: Film Editing

The American Cinema Editors won't hand out their awards for another week. Then we might get a great clue for the Oscar winner. But right now, there are two easily deserving winners: "The Trial of the Chicago 7," which has to go back and forth from present to flashbacks and do it seamlessly enough to not lose us, and "Sound of Metal," which is a little more linear, but has other challenges in the way of incorporating the sound design into things. "Nomadland" could be a threat, just because it's l...
