This part two of our two-part look at what it's actually like to be a video or film editor. Soo Zee makes up a fake short film and we talk you through the whole edit process. How long does transcoding take? How many cuts do you usually go through? What's all that exporting mumbo jumbo? All this and more in this episode! Show notes: • What is the RED Camera of which we speak? More here http://www.red.com • Soo Zee mentioned Scott Pilgrim vs. The World type graphics. Those are awesome! Nerdwriter talked about them in detail over here https://youtu.be/pij5lihbC6k • Why yes, I did compare directors to Winnie the Pooh. You can read all about him sitting down to a good think here http://lib.ru/MILN/pooh.txt_with-big-pictures.html#5 • If you haven't watched every single one of Tony Zhou's Every Frame a Painting film essay series, you should, starting with this one about how editors know when to make a cut, titled (aptly) "How Does an Editor Think and Feel?" https://youtu.be/3Q3eITC01Fg I'd love to do a much longer episode about that middle artistic process. If you're interested in more details about what I called the "kumbaya" part of editing, tell us. If the idea makes you break out in hives on the other hand, we want to know that too. Let us know in a review!
