Editors are taking the stage

Room, Veep, and Pixar editors at EditFest London

EditFest London has unveiled a lineup of editors who will take the stage at the British Film Institute Southbank on Saturday, 25 June. Produced by American Cinema Editors (ACE), the event puts editors in conversation with post production professionals, aspiring editors, students, content creators, production execs, and those who simply love the art and craft of editing. The convention provides attendees with the opportunity to hear the artists talk about their work in an intimate theater setting.

ACE is an honorary society of motion picture editors whose members are voted into membership on the basis of their achievements, their dedication to the education of others and their commitment to the craft of editing. ACE has a number of UK members who have earned the ACE designation, as well as other international members.

This year’s lineup has grown from previous years according to the organizers. In addition to the film and television panels and the one-on-one conversation with Paul Hirsch, ACE, a special Pixar animation panel has been announced. Editors Axel Geddes and Sarah Reimers will take conference-goers through the Pixar process and treat them to a sneak peek at the upcoming film Finding Dory and its accompanying short, Piper.

Cloud-Produktionen: Vom Zukunftsthema zur „State of the Art“-Technologie


LiveU treibt die Cloud-Revolution mit smarten Tools und Best Practices voran

Seit vielen Jahren schon reden die Visionäre der Videobranche von „Cloud-Produktionen“. Doch erst in den letzten Monaten finden Cloud-basierte Produktionstools verstärkte Anwendung. Die Coronapandemie und der damit einhergehende Ruf nach Remote Work und Kostenreduzierung haben den Siegeszug der virtuellen Videoverarbeitung zweifelsohne angetrieben. Nicht nur immer mehr Anwender nutzen die Cloud-Tools. Auch die technologischen Angebote selbst wurden immer vielgestaltiger, ausgereifter und einfacher zu bedienen. Branchenexperten dürfte es wenig überraschen, dass LiveU – Vorreiter auf dem Gebiet IP-basierten Videoproduktion und -übertragung – schon früh in die Entwicklung von Cloud-Technologien eingestiegen ist und heute eine Reihe von Lösungen im Portfolio hat, die sich bereits im Praxis-Einsatz bewährt haben.
