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

HDR Finishing Changes Everything: Deluxe

May 10, 2016, 04:06 PM

The good news is that you really don’t have to run out and buy a UHD TV just yet, but you will want to buy a TV that can display HDR finishing. HDR, an acronym for High Dynamic Range is a process used in post production that delivers a very drastic, visible difference in image quality.

Now that narrative content is being considered, VR post production eventually will become something more for editors to become familiar with.

Video Collaboration Tools: DaVinci Resolve

July 28, 2014, 12:25 PM

At least three different editors in various locations on the planet were able to do their editing tasks using DaVinci Resolve 11 via a shared hierarchy. Adjustments could be made from any workstation through a MacMini server that connected all the users, and the resulting metadata transferred via cat 7 Ethernet to everyone involved.

Tech geeks love it. Cinematographers embrace it. Television manufacturers and Internet delivery systems promote it. Post houses try to ignore it. American broadcasters reject it. Studios well, um, will always find a way to profit from it before it becomes commonplace. Like the motion picture business, the content production process, and the way we receive content is changing. In addition, our viewing habits are changing as well.
