Me, editing something my husband wrote: What do you think? I don't want to change your voice.

Him: You didn't. You took the essence of what I wrote and made it betterer.

And isn't that what editing is?

Add depth of field to your screenshots/images:

  • Take a screenshot, upload it (link below), - Drag it around, scroll to zoom in/out
  • Click to focus

Pretty cool idea. Free.

Today is a regular workday, except that I'm listening to one song from The Tortured Poets Department during each Pomodoro break. Anyone else listening to it today?

Just curious, what would be your preference here?

"Generative extend" is a fantastic example of actually useful AI feature. We've all been there with shots that we need to hold for just a liiiittle bit longer but can't. Now we should be able to.

I wonder if I should rewrite the first scene in this book. I get a “feeling” that it might not pull enough, even thought it works. I trust my feelings enough to think about it.

Editors and directors, do your circle takes usually end up in the actual edit?

I think typos and other errors have been told to travel in pairs so it's more likely that one will sneak through while the other is attracting all the attention. Clever little things.

I’m still working through editing the next book. This one definitely needs fewer rewrites. The story holds up well. There are, of course, things I want to fix.

I've started down a copy editing rabbit hole and I'm loving it.

I wanted to remove the word "basically" from any old blog post where it didn't make sense. (you don't "basically, do something" you "do something")

As I was going through I kept on finding other examples of words that could be clipped.

  • essentially
  • probably
  • possibly
  • just
  • you need to
  • trivial

This isn't even the full list!

80% of the time the sentence reads better without further edits

QC at this nation's biggest broadcaster, operating since 1953:
"there's a glitch at TC 01:27:00:00"
Me: "that's out of bounds, the programme is 14m long"
Broadcaster: "oh, sorry, we threw all the episodes on a single timeline"
Me: 🤷‍♂️

This week, the annual conference for ACES: The Society for Editing will take place in San Diego. It's always one of the highlights of my year.

I'll be speaking on a panel called "Making the Invisible Visible: Editors as Changemakers" with CaTyra Polland, Cynthia Williams, and Vee White, and I'm honored to be part of such an amazing group of people.

Will you be at ? If so, I hope to see you there!

peeps: how can I use metadata from audio file names (dual system audio) as shot metadata with AutoSync? As in, turn 501-2t04.wav into Episode 5, scene 1, take 4 of setup 2.

I asked at Avid Forums but the post hasn't been approved in a week (fun! Even their forums do not work properly!)

“It is difficult to compare X in our study with X in previous studies because previous studies did not measure X.”

It’s difficult, but I’m sure you can do it!

"Rewriting a passive construction to be active almost always makes what you’re saying clearer."

Example: Millions of dollars were embezzled from the company.
Revision: Two executives embezzled millions of dollars from the company.
