Published by:

What if 24 hours after wrap of principal photography you could have a rough “editors cut” completed of a major hollywod motion picture?  Gergana Angelova was able to do just that with the help of FCPX and Shot Notes X. The film, Septembers of Shiraz, featured Adrian Brody and Selma Hayek and was shot at Millennium’s Nu Boyana Studio in Bulgaria this summer. Her edit was an experiment to see how well it worked and how how much time the process would take. She Also talks about the process she went thru in cutting the Behind the Scenes DVD material for Expendables 3.

We also go into a rather lengthy discussion about growing up in a family of aviators.

The Panasonic GH4 is an amazing small 4K capable camera that everyone is talking about. Since Dave Dugdale had just posted a full 45 minute review of the camera we decided he would be the perfect person to talk to. In addition, Dave was in the middle of an A7S review so he had some choice comments on the camera we discussed last week.
