3 years in the making… have you ever worked on ONE project that long? Bokeh is what Geoffrey Orthwein calls “Lo Fi Sci-Fi Fi”… its a science fiction story that doesn’t have lasers and space ships in it. Its mostly about a relationship and what happens in the face of adversity. It was also all cut in FCPX and in this episode we’ll hear about the pros and cons of using this software on a feature length project.

If you’re new to video editing and FCPX is your first edit system to use you may not know what “Consolidating Media” means. Trust me, its a good feature, and it is a feature that has been missing from FCPX from day one. Chris Steele from Worx4X joins me in this episode to discuss how the team at Marquis Broadcast came together in 4 short months to bring this old feature from Final Cut Classic.

FCG142 – Piper’s Picks TV (feat. Adam Feinsilver)

Published by:

Kids programming, although seen as a stepping stone for many in the entertainment industry is actually Adam Feinsilver and his daughter, Piper’s passion. So many of us take the time to really concentrate on what we love and in the process we don’t allow ourselves to do our very best. In this episode of The Grill we discuss a little bit about Adam’s workflow and backup strategy for archiving the over 800 interviews that Piker has done, with every one from John Lassiter to Taylor Swift and hundreds of Nickelodeon stars, but also spend a fair amount of time talking about editing timing and social media.
