June 14, 2012 - On the evening of June 13, close to 40 professional Videographers came together at the epic Creative Co-Op to learn the secrets of professional video editors. Robert Harrington and Chris Shepherd of Bella Vista Productions demonstrated their production pipeline for wedding videos. This is the same process used by the pros in Hollywood for cutting a feature film, and the techniques they shared apply equally as well for editing any large production.
The talk began with some basic housekeeping tips - keep your work area clean, focus on one project at a time, avoid distractions (phone, social media, email, etc.). While it sounds basic, these small things can have a major impact on the amount of work you get done in a day. Next, they talked about their methodology for file transfer and backup. This information was just a warm up to the real meat of the presentation - their editing process.
