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

John Dies at the End Don Coscarelli On Re-Editing

There’s no getting around the fact that Don Coscarelli makes some odd films. After his latest project, John Dies at the End, toured the festival circuit for nearly a year, it is finally getting a release on VOD and will hit theaters in limited release later this month. When I caught up with the director at SXSW in March of last year, it was the morning after a hectic day where he had just screened his new cut of John Dies at the End at midnight.

Those are two of six questions editor Walter Murch argues that editors must ask themselves for every cut. The other four? That’s the deep stuff. Watch the video to find out.

I have seen tons of editing tutorials out there that are NLE specific. I watch them all the time. However, I rarely see any basic editing tutorials that are useful for any NLE. In order to fill the void, I present my video-editing tips series, good for the newbie, and potentially useful to the pro. [...]

Jump cuts Rolling Stones' Doom and Gloom

NEW YORK - Jump (www.jumpny.tv), with offices in LA and NYC, recently cut The Rolling Stones' new music video for Doom and Gloom. Produced by Black Dog Films Limited and directed by Jonas Akerlund, the video pairs the band's energetic performance with scenes of Swedish actress Noomi Rapace, whose look is ever changing. Each of her characters boasts more rock and roll spirit than the last.
