Everything is changing very fast for editors. We make films in the age of Big Data.  It is possible to record on many types of cameras shooting principal photography and then there are the second cameras, Go Pros, B units shooting multiple angles, and the rushes that come from the producers nephew’s best friend’s iPhone, not to mention archive from the net. It could be any frame rate, any codec any aspect ratio. Sound is just as widely collected.

This melange of Terrabytes all ends up in the edit suite, with schedules that haven’t kept pace with the changes, and we embark on the exciting but anarchic post production pathways all the way from offline to grade to online to sound-mix release. “Lock-off” has given way to versions (features, TV hours), and online content.  New editing software is rapidly replacing the old (goodbye Final Cut Pro?). Somewhere in the middle of it editors try and make a film that has art, story and impact.

This is a session with editors and post production specialists to talk about the good, the bad and the ugly world we find ourselves in, the wonderful opportunities this new technology can offer and the need to reawaken some of the disciplines of the past.

The panel includes post-production tech guru Mark Stewart-Pearson, online editor Roen Davis, and editors Andrea Lang, Andrew Arestides, and Karen Johnson.
