'Mad Max: Fury Road' - Stop the Presses! A Woman Edits an Action Film

'Mad Max: Fury Road' - Stop the Presses! A Woman Edits an Action Film | Videomaking | Scoop.it
"Filmmaking is not for the faint-hearted," asserts South African-born film editor Margaret Sixel. The mother of two boys, Buda (19), and Tige (15), is one of a growing number of women editing the male domain of action films.
Vico Ughetto's insight:

I truly believe that editing is not really credit as a major ingredient in the film process. The director, dop, or the acting gets all the attention, but also as an editor I strongly believe editing is the second directing and when there's no real script is the most task in the film/video industry.

Well price needs to be much better. Also not 4K capable is a no-no for the moment for any cameras above 3K price. Why? A lot of them have it and specially the lowest price cameras have it. So why not in a more expensive camera?

Well video news are the most true image around. The manipulation is possible of course, but costs and time do to it kills the process from the beginning. In digital photo editing time and cost are more relative and so it's more feasible to do the trick. But the questions remains. What is acceptable manipulation?

Canon's New C100 Mark II Gets 1080p 60fps & Improved LCD/EVF

Canon's New C100 Mark II Gets 1080p 60fps & Improved LCD/EVF | Videomaking | Scoop.it
One of the biggest complaints with Canon's large sensor offerings below $10,000 is that they haven't featured frame rates in the 1080p 60fps range or higher.
Vico Ughetto's insight:

Nice improvements. For me this could be the best camera out there (considering independent work and 1 person shooter combined to Canon glass owner with the objective of delivering a digital cinema look/style). But the lack of a SDI out and a decent codec for grading (you need to do it hence you bought the camera) like the 4:2:2 50mbs mxf that Canon already ships with the cheapers 105, 205 and 305.
