More Than One Path to Success: Senior Editor Mae Manning

We talk a lot about things like “accessible tools” and the “democratization of video production” -- what has this meant for the emerging talent whose creative development has taken place largely, or even entirely, within this democratized landscape? Mae Manning is one such editor, who taught herself to edit music videos, and caught the eye of a local production company. Several years later and now their Senior Editor, she cuts corporate and industrial training videos, promotional videos, sketch comedy, short films, and everything else that gets thrown her way. Mae’s story is an inspiration for anyone that thinks there is only one path to success in the industry.

Naughty Saint Nick: Bad Santa 2 and Panasonic Varicam 35

Bad Santa 2, the long-awaited sequel to the 2003 dark comedy cult classic, was shot by Theo Van de Sande, ASC (Blade, Cruel Intentions, Wayne’s World) with Panasonic VariCam 35 4K cinema cameras. Rather than shoot like a typical comedy, Theo went for a much moodier, almost indie approach to emphasize the performances of Billy Bob Thornton as the title character, and Kathy Bates as his mother. Along with insights into advanced onset workflows starting with 4K AVC-Intra 444 files in V-LOG to P2 express cards, Theo relates the durability of the VariCam 35, holding up in conditions so cold that even dollies and lenses were freezing, and approaches to shooting and grading that have been perfected on over 60 feature films.
