The Perils of Full Disclosure

by Paddy Bird on
January 21, 2022

Hello dear friends!

Happy new year! I hope you had a fantastic holiday break and are raring to go for 2022! We've got a great show for you this week with a few new features to talk about.

We're kicking off our first podcast episode of the new year with a discussion around Full Disclosure and all its perils. Crafting the information and story content is one thing but knowing when and where to disclose that content to our audience is a delicate art.

Too much too soon and we overload the audience, too little and the narrative won't make sense and create that magnetic interest from the viewer. Join me for this week's in-depth creative editing discussion on Once Upon a Timeline: The Creative Editing Podcast.

BOOTCAMP

The Power Of Music Editing: Part 2

Saturday, Feb 12, 3PM GMT

We’re really excited to announce Part 2 of our Music Editing Bootcamp. The number one skill that high end clients ask for more than any other is the ability to skilfully score sequences. It’s a complex art form within the art of editing and requires deep and intense analysis in order to master it.

We created the foundations of musical editing theory in Part 1 of our Bootcamp series by studying musical structure, tonality, assignment and tempo. Now, it’s time to go more in depth and look at the techniques used in pro edit suites around the world.

This is why we’ve developed a series of 2 hour, live Bootcamps dedicated to mastering this little known part of the art of editing.

Are you Drowning in a Sea of Technical Editing Courses?

It’s frustrating that every single course on the market teaches you all about the software but nothing about how to edit. The industry doesn’t care how many buttons you’ve memorised, it cares whether you can craft powerful films.
