One of the things that many low budget productions suffer from, as well as nearly all student films, is a lack of organization. It makes those tougher films even harder, but no one ever feels they have the time to set up their systems.
This is crazy shortsightedness and to give a few examples of what I mean by organization, I’m going to take some examples from my book, THE FILM EDITING ROOM HANDBOOK, 4th Edition, and present them (in my usual rambling fashion) during a webinar being given by the good folks over at New Media Webinars.
Every editor does things differently, and Shane Ross has done a pretty good DVD on the subject within Final Cut Pro. I’m going to toss my own thoughts into the ring tomorrow, Thursday, September 9, 2010 at 10am Pacific time.
There are some good things about this webinar — the first is that it’s free, if you can make it at that time (NMW will be making the webinar available for a fee afterwards, along with some added content — a video where I’ll talk about organizing a VFX workflow, as well as a copy of the glossary from my book). You’ll also get a chance to win some prizes, always a good thing.
Finally, I think that you’ll learn some things and, if you haven’t, you’ll have a chance to ask questions.
It should be a blast. And you don’t even have to be in LA to see it. So, c’mon down. Just click on the link below.
