I'm a NYC based online editor & colorist who is available for both long and short term projects. I'm available to come to you, can recommend Post Production Houses that fit your budget and needs, or can work out of my home suite. Additionally I can supply my own Avid Symphony licenses if needed.
I love webisodes and webseries! This is a market that I love and want to be apart of. I want webisodes to succeeded and be awesome! But for them to succeed I want to see webisodes finished at the same level of quality as films and tv shows.
How can we do this? The budgets are very different and webisodes are created all over the world.
Instead of trying to tackle the entire piece, and mailing or uploading drive across the world, I can work with you to help fix any problem scenes or problem circumstances that happen on set.
Due to location, time, cost restraints, I've come up with the following plan:
Transfer 10GB in 8 Minutes.

With my local NYC based server you can transfer up-to 200mbit/s.
The server is located in Chelsea in Manhattan, You just drop off your hard drive, and instantly your files are available to download on the other end. NO UPLOADING.
Transfer 10GB in 8 Minutes.

Available for short periods of time (hours) or by the Week, Month, and more!
Post Production is an always changing environment and companies are always looking for skilled assistant editors. I created this course to provide a way for current AE's to keep their skill set updated and prepare the next generation of AE's/ This course is great for people who are changing careers, someone who is looking to break into post-production, or someone who perhaps only knows Final Cut and is having to switch over to Avid.
The course is customizable to what want to learn. We can cover topics on the right or dive deeper into effects, audio mixing, editing, capturing, and more...
We can spend time learning and discussing different techniques for ingesting different types of media as well as learning how to make precise adjustments when you're color correcting.
Anything and everything! If your goal is to become an assistant editor then the topics on the right is a great starting point. If you already have experience we can add or subtract topics or just dive right into the software.
- Project organization
- How to backup files/projects/etc..
- How to export an MPEG4 QT or H264 QT with EMBD TC,
- Understanding how AMA and Avid deals with media files,
- Grouping and Syncing annoying long and complicated sequences with multiple cameras +2-24
- Understanding different tape formats, XDCAM EX/XDCAM Professional Disc/P2/5D, etc..
- How to digitize from a DVD or youtube as a source,
- Understanding of audio mixers and what it takes to layoff a tape and proper deck hooking up procedures.
- What is reference, HDSDI/SDI, super, and a general understanding of how to navigate deck menus
- Knowing what matchframe is, find bin, and what gang is.
- Knowing how to customize your user settings & keyboard.
Each session is available as a 4 hour block.
If you're looking at the topics on the right and not sure what any of them mean then I recommend taking the Level 1 Assistant Editing Course (which covers everything on the right) and requires two 4 hour blocks.
This gives us time to cover content on both days but giving you the additional break time to go home, download the software, and practice what you've learned before the second day.
Whichever one you'd prefer, I train on both Macs and PC's. Everything you learn will translate to both systems. However as PC's are more prominent in the post industry I recommend learning on a PC.
Knowledge in other editing applications is preferred (Adobe Premiere, Final Cut), however I love a great challenge with someone new to post production. You should have an understanding of either Mac OS or Windows.
Classrooms can be a great learning environment, they can also be extremely costly. I first learned the basics of Avid in a classroom, however when it came time to actually work and get a job I realized that what I had been taught was not what the industry needed me to know.
The topics that I cover is what you will do every day of your time as an assistant editor. These are all topics that you can confidentially place on your resume and talk about in any interview setting that will light up an interviewers face.
