To Drone or Not to Drone....

Another great intern.

For anyone who’s made a go of it in production, the first step into the world of employment is usually an internship.  Often, the experience is synonymous with being a catchall gopher, the low man on the totem pole who gets sent out to get the coffees.  Maybe it’s because we’ve all been there, but

  As an editor of mainly DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera footage, figuring out an efficient workflow for the unprecedented RED EPIC Camera was at first a little daunting. “5K?! Will my computer explode while processing hundreds of GB’s of EPIC footage?” Nope, everything will be just fine. Assuming you have covered a few

Winged Migration

Written by Clayton Goodfellow I’ll be the first to admit that I have a very short attention span. So the idea of a documentary about birds sounds very slow and agonizing, but oscar-nominated Winged Migration is an amazing film because it manages to sustain the attention of it’s viewers with hardly any narration throughout. It
