Editing a Hockey Documentary

Editing a Hockey Documentary

It's important to see the interviewees on screen but we also don't want this to become a series of talking heads. Hockey is a fast paced sport and we knew our editing style had to mimic that pace when it came to cutting - keeping the audience engaged by showing rather than telling.

iZotope RX 6: Dialogue Repair on the short film " Mommy and Me"

Most of Mommy and Me was shot in an apartment in downtown Calgary and we had some issues with traffic noise bleeding into our dialogue tracks. I was very impressed with how I was able to completely remove those sounds using Voice De-Noise and some manual repair on the more problematic sections. One segment in particular had a piece of dialogue covered by the action of actor Carlee Ryski putting a tube of lotion down on the tile countertop. This was easily fixed by manual repair.

Editing Our JDRF Program

We knew going into this project that we wanted to shoot our interview subjects with two cameras rolling simultaneously. Doing this gave us some leeway in editing and we didn’t have to worry about jump cuts, if there was a moment when an interviewee paused during a sentence we could just cut in to the close up or pull back to the wide shot and make a seamless edit. This also makes for a more visually interesting production so you aren't locked down to only one angle per interview.
