The Marvel of Guardians of the Galaxy

Big companies can't be nimble? Don't tell Sony Pictures Imageworks. They turned around 88 shots for Marvel's instant classic, Guardians of the Galaxy -- plus a complete digital character -- in just two months. VFX Supervisor Pete Travers says it's the fastest they've ever worked on a project like this, and a sterling example of both the creative advantages that come with scale, and the richness of the Marvel multiverse.

Sink or Swim in Hollywood:Editor William Boodell & Sharknado

Sink or Swim in Hollywood:Editor William Boodell & Sharknado

When editor William (Bill) Boodell came to LA, he didn't expect to ever be associated with a shark tornado -- I mean, who is? And now Sharknado (the first one), is a part of mainstream pop culture even a year later and his best known work to date. If you talk to Bill for five minutes, you'll discover that he's a film connoisseur with a near-concerning catalog of directors, editors, and filmmaking theory in his head, and an up-and-coming editor with a unique post-film path to Hollywood that anyone can learn from.

Distributing Creativity: The Growth of Cloud-based Workflows

Distributing Creativity: The Growth of Cloud-based Workflows

The cloud can mean a lot of things, and in some cases, it can mean nearly nothing. This can make it hard to even know what we're talking about. The "real" parts are getting more real all the time, though, for everything from collaboration to computation. Creative COW Contributing Editor Kylee Wall has been looking into the ways that the cloud in its many meanings is already transforming TV & film production today, and she has some ideas about where things might be going from here.

Unbreakable Conform for Avid Symphony & DaVinci Resolve

There's nothing easy about roundtripping MXF files between Avid Symphony and DaVinci Resolve, especially if you want to keep handles intact. Longtime online editor Scott Freeman has come up with a way to actually make it easy, while automatically taming media management beasts. Best of all, the time savings are stunning: 8 hour conforms can be done in 4, and 40-hour media management marathons can be accomplished in seconds. Here are the steps for that, and so many other things that become possible as a result.
