Working with Remote Workflows

At the time of me writing this article there is literally no other subject of conversation going on at the moment. The creative industries are on the verge of a complete shutdown, and it’s a seriously scary prospect. The fear & uncertainty is very real. It’s not just our industry that is feeling the shockwaves, it is a global situation completely w...

New Year, New Decade, New Rig

Some time ago I was fortunate enough to take part in a track day at Oulton Park, driving a souped up BMW M4. It was completely insane. Literally the most powerful car I’ve ever driven. From 0-60 in 4 seconds or something like that. I’m not Jeremy Clarkson so I can’t remember the exact figure. Anyway it was a really great experience, and something I...

For my 4th Kitplus article I thought I’d highlight an effect in Premiere Pro that frankly I would be lost without. Namely - time remapping. I own and work with a Sony FS7 (other cameras are available) - and given that it’s now one of the most popular cameras in UK broadcast today I’d be willing to guess most editors will have come across the clips...

Post Production on Tour

I’m writing this article after finally settling back into my office after a busy few days on the Kitplus Tour 2019. The tour saw me travelling from Manchester to Glasgow then onto Bristol, then finally returning back to Manchester. Quite a few miles travelled. But totally worth it. I chose three topics for the workshops which I presented. The first...

Keeping Your Post Prodction on Track with Subclips and Se...

For my 2nd Kit Plus article I thought I’d try and build on the theme of my first, and that’s one of making sure things are organised at all levels of your post production projects. Last time I talked about trying as best as you can to stick to the ‘two week rule’, making sure that the names & locations of every asset you import, and every bin & seq...

Your two week editing future

So here we are - January again! Usually a good time to reflect on the year just gone by, and a good time to look forward to the coming months as the new year begins.

Soho shaking all over Manchester

with Alan Bradbury Issue 108 - December 2015 It was a busy time for my colleagues and I here at Soho Editors last month, but quite a telling one too.

The circle of life with Dick Hobbs

by Dick HobbsIssue 84 - December 2013 Being a simple soul, I am endlessly fascinated by ideas which are the great new thing one day, rubbished the next, and resurface the day after as the next great thing. In the 1960s, the BBC decided that it was wrong to concentrate all its radio and television production in London, and established national and r...
