LOS ANGELES POST PRODUCTION GROUP: What got you interested in editing professionally in the first place?

MISHA TENENBAUM: In high school I was part of the cable club, and took a class called TV Production. I loved that teachers and other adults bestowed on me the responsibility to capture important moments like graduation, community projects, and even sporting events.

[See Misha's High School Demo Reel Here]

I majored in Broadcast Journalism in college, again to pursue what I considered then, and in fact still consider, important work. By college I was already making a living editing for the school, and filming private events like weddings, retirement parties, sporting events, and more. It wasn’t until after college when I moved to California for vocational school that I realized editing, specifically film and documentary editing, is way more artistic than I previously though. Because I was exposed to a lot of film teachers I learned to love the art of filmmaking, and those jobs replaced what I was doing before.

LAPPG: Having worked on over 5,000 hours of union television and film projects what are three of your biggest takeaways for becoming an editor?

MT: First, I should point out that many of those hours were spent as an assistant editor, and that I accumulated them all in one long shift. Ok, I’m kidding. [READ MORE HERE]

 



ZEISS UNVEILS NEW HIGH-END CINEMATOGRAPHY OPTICS: ZEISS SUPREME PRIME RADIANCE LENSES

A Modern Lens, based on ZEISS Supreme Prime lenses, with Controlled Flares – orders possible by 31st March 2020!

 

ZEISS has unveiled the ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses, an exclusive new set of seven high-end cinematography lenses. The lenses are based on the high-speed ZEISS Supreme Prime lens family with the benefit of the new T*blue coating, which offers a distinctive look and consistent flares without any compromises.

ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses enable cinematographers to create beautiful, consistent and controlled flares in the image while maintaining contrast and avoiding transmission loss. Yet, they offer all attributes of a modern cinema lens: large-format coverage, high speed, robustness and smooth and reliable focus – all in a small, light-weight package.

ZEISS Supreme Prime Radiance lenses come as a seven-lens set: 21 mm, 25 mm, 29 mm, 35 mm, 50 mm, 85 mm and 100 mm – all T1.5. Although being slightly warmer than regular Supreme Primes, they pair very well with them. That’s why ZEISS deliberately went without the extremer focal lengths on both ends of the range that the regular Supremes offer. Just mix and match as you see fit.

SUBSCRIBE TO LAPPG'S YOUTUBE CHANNEL TO CATCH UP ON MISSED MEETINGS

 

In this highlight video from Tony Margulies' entertaining presentation you get a feel for the need and procedure of Foley, the recreation of human sounds, in the audio post process. Tony walks us through a typical Foley recording session discussing the various footwear and props required. He discusses spotting and cues, the cloth pass, the props pass and his thoughts on recording sounds to be Foley'd.

RECAP OF OCTOBER 2019 MEETING

We were back on the Westside after two months of being “on location” at SONY and ZEISS! We settled back in at the Crossroads School Community Room for a very full night.  First up we had Derick Rhodes, VP of Creator Programs jetting in from NYC to share with us the exciting new updates happening at Vimeo. He shared a great new resource called "For Hire" jobs marketplace [more info below] where you can find professionals to work on your projects as well as find work for yourself! He also detailed Vimeo Stock and spoke about both licensing the footage as well as selling your footage to be licensed. And lastly, Derick shared Vimeo’s workflow tools including their Review page which is key to working collaboratively. After the networking break with some Halloween inspired treats we jumped into Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve 16 with Mary Plummer who showed us in detail how the cut page works for creating speedy short form content like the cooking demo she walked us through. And then she switched over the Fairlight audio page where she showed some of the powerful  tools in this  fully integrated professional audio post platform now inside DaVinci Resolve 16.

ADD VIMEO TO YOUR LIST WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING TO GET HIRED OR TO FIND PROFESSIONALS FOR YOUR NEXT PROJECT!

 

As you may know already if you were at our October Meeting with Derick Rhodes, Vimeo recently launched a "For Hire" jobs marketplace. So this means any paying Vimeo member can set their account as “available for hire” and be considered for work in their hiring tool. Once you do, you can search for available jobs and submit portfolios to roles that match your skill set. 

 

Once a project is staffed, you and your collaborators can leverage the rest of Vimeo’s tools to review edits with your teams, manage your video libraries, and even distribute the finished video to all of your social platforms.

 

Plus, if you are looking for others to collaborate, you can quickly find industry-leading video experts (editors, DPs, animators, designers, and everything in between). Browse their global network of talent by budget, project type, location, skill, and experience. Or post specific job listings and let the talent come to you.

 

And the best part? Vimeo never takes a commission, fee, or favor. Payment takes place entirely outside of our platform, because they believe the Vimeo community deserves a cost-free way to connect with top creatives and make their next video project a reality.


For more information and to access the jobs marketplace visit: https://vimeo.com/for-hire
