Tonight I just completed a 3-week editing stint working on the trailer for a new 3D documentary film entitled: “Under The Electric Sky”; from Producers: Insomniac Events, Haven Entertainment and Magical Elves, Inc. This is my third project with Magical Elves’ Directors Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz this year; and I’m definitely a fan of the projects that they curate and their first rate facility, which is home to a brand spanking new ISIS media server. In the words of my favorite Pet Detective: “Mmmmmm, Like A Glove!”

The film was shot with an array of digital cinema cameras including the Sony F5, F55 and F65 3D rigs; along with Canon DSLRs the C300 and 5D. I wasn’t on hand for the shoot, but judging from the beautiful images I’ve been swimming in as of late, I’d be very interested to see what particular lenses the camera bodies were outfitted with. I’ll refrain from making any idle assumptions here. The over-cranked frame rates gave a beautiful density and “weight” to the imagery; as well as great color and latitude! From ariel to timelapse to handheld cinematography, there’s no shortage of stunning eye candy and visceral techno, house, hard house, tech house, trance, dubstep, drum n bass, oh and yes, ravers galore to keep you thoroughly on the hook once this film takes a hold of you. Avid Media Composer 6.5.x is the editing environment that’s played host to a team of editors working tirelessly in 2D and 3D since principle photography wrapped last month; following the immensely successful 2013 installment of the annual Electric Daisy Carnival. Many thanks to the incredible team of Magical Elves producers, editors and assistants with whom I collaborated through the month of July.  I’m off to a bit of traveling while the summer is still in fill swing and then on to more series work. I’ll be excited to see the film once it makes its way to the big screen.
