Mike Duxbury - The Power of Editing
We are fortunate to have someone as experienced as SCMM member Mike Duxbury to deliver a presentation on this subject. Mike has nearly 40 years of experience working as a professional editor for television. On 11th May he took examples from each of 3 films that he has worked on with SCMM members: The Madness, Ties that Bind and It’s a Deal. He picked out edits he’d improved and explained why they worked. A very useful exercise from which we felt we learned a lot. At the request of SCMM members, Mike has written up his notes and they have been circulated to members.
Tonight was also the premiere of Alan Moore’s film It’s a Deal. This was very well received.
Mike Duxbury takes a swipe at Steve Jakab - all in the interests of filmmaking. Mike is demonstrating how to shoot a convincing fight scene without hurting anyone.
