Editing in the Dark Series

As a way of creating interest in the project and in the editing process, I essentially “edited in the public” – uploading cuts of sections of the films to FilmmakerIQ.com to show off and to get feed back. I will break down the process these scenes came about here in the following pages.

A little about my workflow. I edited all the files from the Canon 5d mkII and Canon 1d mkIV natively inside Premiere Pro CS5. The audio had to be manually synced as sound was recorded onto a TASCAM portable recorder at 96 khz.

The following editing logs are copied from FilmmakerIQ.com in the Pitch Black Group. The comments are lightly edited so there may be some misspellings or grammatical errors as to be expected from any internet forum.
