Seeing Red

This past week I had the opportunity to be an editor for a music video project that was shot on a RED 4k camera.  The quality of footage from this camera is stunning.  The DP shot 5 different takes of the musician Madeline McNeill performing her song Dreamer and I had to choose which shots to use and sync up the sound which was mixed by Noise Floor Studios.  The real challenge with this project is that as I lined up the beginning of a take with the audio after a little bit the audio and video would be out of sync so I would have to move to another take and cut on a new line of the song.  The final edit looked like a patchwork quilt. I loved the problem solving and really appreciate the opportunity to contribute to a team project.
