No company in the history of television has ever sold a complete set of pro documentary rushes to practice editing on… until now.
35 hours from the hour long documentary Cities At Dawn following Californian photographer Anthony Epes as he shoots magic hour in European cities.
Everyone teaches the technical, no one teaches the creative.
There’s always a few things we should ask ourselves before starting to build our sync pulls. Inside The Edit analyses these important pre-constructive questions. One of 80 creative editing tutorials at insidetheedit.com
Nobody knows what we do… so, a homage to every editor out there in those dark rooms creating art with moving images.

Our Drone Future explores the technology, capability, and purpose of drones, as their presence becomes an increasingly pervasive reality in the skies of tomorrow.
In the near future, cities use semi-autonomous drones for urban security. Human officers monitor drone feeds remotely, and data reports are displayed with a detailed HUD and communicated via a simulated human voice (designed to mitigate discomfort with sentient drone technology). While the drones operate independently, they are “guided” by the human monitors, who can suggest alternate mission plans and ask questions.
Specializing in predictive analysis, the security drones can retask themselves to investigate potential threats. As shown in this video, an urban security drone surveys San Francisco’s landmarks and encounters fierce civilian resistance.
I was delighted to be asked to produce the opening sequence for the Charlie Rose ‘Oscars Special’ show, which aired on PBS on 27th February 2014. The sequence features 8 Oscar nominated films with actors and directors that had previously appeared on the Charlie Rose show. The 1 minute sequence shows a series of custom animated illustrations and transitions from the film Gravity, Before Midnight, Blue Jasmine, 12 Years A Slave, The Wolf of Wall Street, Philomena and Nebraska.

Starting with the DynaTAC in 1974 and ending with a side-by-side comparison between the iPhone 5s and the Galaxy Note, Fueled’s designers and animators crafted the 40-year history of the mobile cell phone. For some it will be a walk down memory lane, for others a history lesson.
Fueled’s Design Team describes the short video as Art Deco, a style characterized by its bold geometric shapes and rich colours. It’s a very eclectic style, deriving taste from a broad range of sources — some representing the machine age. You’ll notice the snappy animation style reflects the lightning fast transformation and evolution of cellphones.
While the film may have ended with the first model of an iPhone, Fueled decided to dig into the evolution of Apple’s iPhone and compare it to top Android phones. It’s remarkable how little the iPhone’s aesthetic has changed in contrast to Android models, which are becoming larger and changing constantly.
What will the next 40 years look like? Fueled’s Founder Rameet Chawla says, “While I don’t know exactly when, it’s only a matter of time before the cellphone will be completely obsolete.”
If you recognize the voice in the script, you’ll know it’s from an old advertisement from 1980s for DynaTAC. At the time, no one knew how big mobile would become and that this one man’s prophecy would come true. (See original here: youtube.com/watch?v=0WUF3yjgGf4)
