Freddy’s Links: a pdf document with all sorts of information about Avid Media Composer.
From Frank Capria: “Fredrik Liljeblad from our office in Seweden has kept this list as a labor of love for a few years, and it’s grown to be a 43-page PDF. But don’t fret – it’s completely searchable. It’s got links to FAQs, system requirements, installation instructions, and days upon days of video tutorials. Now Freddy’s put it on a public site, and included a Twitter link to alert users when the document has been updated.
You can find it at http://www.freddylinks.com — enjoy!”
Interview with William Hornbeck Editor 1901-1983
A window into editing in the silent period
I was going through past issues of the American CinemaEditor when I came upon this 1983 article written by my old film professor from the University of Wisconsin, David Bordwell. Bill Hornbeck talks about editing in 1917, “You had to grind your camera by hand, and we didn’t have splicing machines; we didn’t have any of the electronic things that we have today for developing and printing. Everything was done by eye.” I found this interview fascinating for what had changed during the last century as well as what has not.
