About my Blog.
Craig McKay, A.C.E. runs this site. I’m an award-winning feature and documentary film editor. I have edited over forty feature films and numerous documentaries. The intent of this blog site is to discuss the art and aesthetics of the film editing process–the creative techniques that an editor can employ in story, performance, shot selection, rhythm, sound, etc. Today, the embrace of digital technology seems to have over-shadowed and confused the actual craft itself—the two are not the same! Avid and Final Cut Pro are merely tools that have become an excellent means to an end. Accordingly, this site has no interest in “tekkie” discussions. I will try to answer your submitted questions, post specific editing topics for discussion, and pass on some tricks of the trade.
