When editing any project, there are moments when a visual effect can be applied to help the story be told. These effects can emphasize something to make it more evident, subtly isolate a certain element or blend several assets into one shot. Sometimes these effects are added only as eye candy to add production value to a project. Ideally, you are not adding visual effects to hide mistakes or to cover up deficiencies in the story…but this has been know to happen. (Guilty as charged!)
On Tuesday April 19th I will be presenting two NAB 2016 sessions. Both will share my work as post production workflow specialist and editorial consultant on the massively successful film. In both presentations I will be sharing the actual Premiere Pro timeline used to edit the film. Here is a sneak peek:
My first presentation is at 12:30pm Tuesday on the Adobe Stage.
I will also be moderating the Creative Master Series Deadpool panel at 4pm:
Stop by and say hi if you can!
UPDATE: After I was hired as editorial consultant on DEADPOOL, one of the first things I did was create a custom 2-monitor Premiere Pro template for post production.
This was a solid starting point for all the editors and assistants before they customized it further to their liking. I designed the workspace with THE PANCAKE TIMELINE already active and a basic bin structure to keep the project organized right off the bat.
I also arranged the panels in tabbed groupings that made logical sense for our workflow and it also allowed quick full screen maximization with the tilde (`) key.
There are a limitless choice of options when you set up a workspace…this custom template was the most efficient and nimble option for our specific needs.
You can download the Premiere Pro template we used on the film below…
