No producer lookin’ at the back of an editor’s head in this suite.
Editor and producer can communicate face to face while watching the same footage on different monitors.

Awsome setup. For those of us curious about your hardware how about a little tour of the desk(s)? Maybe an example/walkthrough of your workflow through it?

The Lava Lamp is what makes it!

right you are, birdcat.
CraftersOFLight, it’s just an Avid Adrenaline suite with plugins galore, photoshop and after effects. I a little (very little) DVD authoring on it with Avid DVDit, and I make all online files frm QT references with Sorenson Squeeze. I have DVD, DV, HDV, and Beta SP IOs and the scopes ate Tektronics that have to be more than 20 years old. The mixer is a mackie and so are the stereo studio monitors.
I’m hoping to get one more year of of this NLE. We’ll see.

Well your close to the brewery at your new digs. But if they keep makig cuts you won’t have many people there to work with.
Another plusyou can walk to the Cardinal games from there.

My ability to one-man-band projects has been my saving grace as they continue to cut budgets. While they use to speand 5 figures per project and I’d get half for editing them, I now just offer a flat bid based on the days I’ll spend on a project, including travel. Makes it easy for them and much easier for me. I no longer have to polish turds in the edit suite. I can shoot what I’ll actually use.
Yeah lots of perks in the location. from walking to the game to hangin’ on the roof during fireworks shows downtown. I dig it here.

I would like to know more about the setup as CrafterofLight asked too (if you will share). I have been editing about 5 years now but my main occupation is still engineering (for now) so I have a combined workspace. Good thing is, a 2 monitor setup, high end graphics, lots of memory and storage and fast processors are needed for the engineering I do so works good for video. I plan to transition into more of a video career within the next 5 years and am learning now all I can. I have card readers for ingesting files that way, a Canopus ADVC110 for capturing analog files, I even have a Yamaha mixer but wouldn’t know what to do with it for video – I use it when I mix some live sound for folks.

My mixer is just for IOs. I do all my mixing within the NLE.

So you’re just renting the one room and just doing your edits out of it or do you have an office space there too?
- February 25, 2010 at 3:17 AM #180992
I have the one room. The rest is common area shared by all the renters in the building.
I’ll use meeting rooms, the theatre and the gym from time to time but the edit suite is all I really need to do business. I’ve always afficed out of my edit suite. That just includes typing invoices after the client cruises.
