I'm an award-winning writer/director. I also do a bit of producing, editing, and shooting - I believe in being as versatile as possible in our increasingly-digital world. I'm based in the Midwest, I love playing complicated board games, I drink a lot of chocolate stout, and I eat a lot of pizza.
I'm not much of an audio editor outside of ProTools, so I wasn't entirely sure where he was going with that. For the record, I'm a huge fan of Soundtrack Pro's noise reduction... probably because I actually know how to do it : ).
Also what's this about knowing programming languages and automating Premiere? Have any handy links? I'm very into automation when I can use it. I'm not a programmer, mind you.
Thanks Ryan. In case it wasn't obvious by making the film a post topic, I really liked Looper. But not just from an audience perspective, also a storyteller perspective. It wasn't conventional, and though timetravel has been done before in many different ways, there were aspects that provided a fresh voice. It took risks. I'm assuming I'm speaking to filmmakers here, and as filmmakers you guys have to see at least *some* of those positive attributes in the story, right? I think I'm kind of echoing your sentiments below, Will.
Hey Derrick, thank you for making yourself so available to the NFS community, it's appreciated!
Yeah I agree. In the end I'm less into pontificating definition if it doesn't serve a purpose of furthering understanding. Regardless, good discussing this with you!
I agree with Bruce's wife. I loved JGL's final lines, very fitting to the story. I have to admit though, the end did get me on a time-travel-mind-fuck level. I've heard there is a specific theory on time travel that this film actually adheres to, but I'd rather just leave myself in wonder. Kind of the Back to the Future effect hahaha.
Perhaps. My profs back in my early editing days didn't coddle me at all, and troubleshooting tech issues myself was a required skill. However, it might be worth looking at in another light - he wanted to take the platform that would get his students editing fastest, which to me says he's more interested in teaching technique than tech. If that's where he's coming from, then that's commendable right?
