Published by:

Play

If you’re tired of the old “click here” video tutorials but want to further your craft, you should really look at “This Guy Edits” on YouTube. Sven’s videos dig deep in the “why” as well as the “how” of video editing and his video essays are very well done. In this episode we also touch on his path from independent producer to working along side one of Hollywood’s biggest producers. (Rhymes with “Hammer On”) Make sure you check out this episode of The Grill and tell a friend.

The rule is “Always be Learning”. Rory Cantwell, in his multi decade career knows this all to well. Watching the transition from cutting film, to cutting video, from linear to non-linear, we can all learn from his experience and wisdom of choosing the right horse to back when it comes to looking at the technological advances that have happened in the past 30 years. Oh… he also really likes FCPX, so there’s that.

Perhaps no other project is more data intensive than a documentary. They are unique in the vast amount of material that needs to be organized and managed and Patrick Southern has worked on a few of these type projects. The Secret Tapes of the OJ and Challenger: The Lost Tapes are a couple of these long form documentaries and in this episode we discusses how he used Producers Best Friend and FCPX to complete the task.
