Awesome to think that these days a 7 year old can have access to Avid.

I consider myself lucky that my high school was one of the first places in south Orange County to have an Avid and I got to start to tinker with it at 15 years old I know alot of my peers didn't get to touch one till much much later.

I remember when Avid was the gold standard of non-linear editing and I loved working on it because once you mastered the intricacies of it there simply was no other system that worked so efficiently.

Sadly, that feels like a hundred years ago.

[Oliver Peters] "Couldn't resist."

So are you aspiring to be a 7 year old? I mean, that's aspirational marketing, right?

Regardless of how much help she may or may not have received, it's clear that we are all slackers by comparison ☺

I am not buying it that this magical seven year old did all this great work without a heavy infusion of effort on her editor father. It makes a cute story though. Even setting up an Avid Account with iLok and all the fun that is can be confounding.

Appears 7 is the new 15.

It’s 2018 and Warhol’s 15 minutes of fame is now 3 minutes - cuz DIGITAL!

(Time to get ahead of the game start your careful search for crows feet on Zendaya, ASAP!)

True, but setting up Media Composer | First is easier than that.

Here's one for FCPX







This was given the best doco award at the recent My State Student Film Awards. Directed, partly shot and completely edited by an 8 year old. It's her first film and yes her mum is a film maker (usually horror comedy not doco). She did get some help with filming but totally told her mum what to shoot.

Here in Phoenix, we used to have an elephant at the zoo that gained some fame as a fine artist.

And there are primates that did the same elsewhere...

I'm kinda cool with human youngsters taking our jobs in time.

But I'm not sure I'm down with losing my gig to my Dog.

" I usually decide to end the shot when people are done talking."

I LOL'd at this. Sign me up for her MasterClass:-)

Kids today, (the old man said), have it easier.

When I was seven, for fun we made photomatic flip-books out of Polaroid stills, and for junior high I got a super-8 mm camera and projector, with the splicing block built into the lid.

In High school, we learned to shoot on Sony reel-to-reel porta-packs in black and white,




manually insert-editing machine-to-machine between two reel-to-reel EIAJ half-inch decks without a controller, just a grease pencil to mark the tape, and the counters on the deck. "Pre-roll" both tapes manually winding them back seven seconds, start them at the same time, (like the launch keys in a SAC missile Silo), watch the counter wind down, look for the little tick mark on the edge of the tape, mash the DUB/EDIT button and hope you didn't hit on a sync pulse, or you had to do it again.




I shot news packages and a one-set sci-fi short, based on a short story out of an Asimov Magazine. That was fun but also tedious, but mine wasn't even the most ambitious project... we had one student in class that animated stop-motion cartoons that way. That kid was insane.

Yep . I didn’t do animation on EIAJ decks but I definitely went through the school of makin 5 edits attempts to get one clean edit in the right place..
