Entertainment Weekly premieres trailer for Jack of the Red Hearts

I recently had the opportunity to edit the theatrical trailer for the award-winning feature film, Jack of the Red Hearts, starring AnnaSophia Robb (The Carrie Diaries, Mercy Street) and Famke Janssen (X-Men). The film will be released in theaters on February 26 at select AMC locations. I began cutting this trailer in Adobe Premiere Pro CC but switched to BlackMagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve 12, not for color correction, mind you, but for editing and delivery. My endless frustrations with Premiere Pro are well documented, but the final straw was the 5.1 surround sound mix.... Read more »

Commercial shoot: Drexel LeBow College of Business

On location in West Philadelphia: Production stills from LeBow Hall, the first location of our commercial shoot for Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business. Shea and I had a wonderful experience working with our local Philly crew and the excellent LeBow marketing team. Having worked on college campuses before, we found the students and professors at Drexel LeBow to be particularly genuine, intelligent, and passionate about making a difference in the real world. Shea and I grew up in the Philadelphia area, and Drexel University has always stood out to... Read more »

10 Easy-to-Fix Things That I Can’t Believe Adobe Hasn’t Fixed in Premiere Pro CC

I’ll just say it. I’m almost ready to come crawling back to Apple. When FCP Classic was EOL’d in 2011, I was one of the first among my circle of editors in LA to give Premiere Pro a shot. Technically, Premiere had been around for quite a long time, but for Mac users, it was never even a contender. Plus, if you were like me, you mostly associated Adobe’s video products with Flash, which I loathed long before Steve Jobs famously published his thoughts on the subject.... Read more »

Nature Conservancy: Restoring the Escalante River (Interview with the editor)

Earlier this year we shared a handful of photos and stories from our experience shooting in the remote and beautiful Escalante region of Utah for The Nature Conservancy. In addition to the still photos, we captured video and interviewed key players in the conservation effort going on in the region. We were tasked with the unique job of with creating a video that not only highlighted the voices of the people in the region, but also starred the Escalante River and the ecosystem around it as a main character — one who the cast of characters we encountered are all trying to strengthen and preserve....

Time-lapse Calculator app

Use my free online time-lapse calculator or 99¢ iOS time-lapse calculator app to quickly determine the shutter interval (time between shots) that you should set to achieve your desired clip length for a given recording duration. iOS app includes additional features for your iPhone or iPad. Besides serving as an intervalometer, my time-lapse app estimates the memory card storage that will be required for RAW or JPG image files, based on the megapixel count of your camera. I’ve also shared some time-lapse photography examples and video editing tips for Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Premiere Pro CC.... Read more »
