[Marcus Moore] "Sorry Charlie, it doesn't matter if people are cutting features in X, it only matters if they're NOT.

Wait... what?!

Working on something that's prestigious and well received will always get bonus points when it comes to PR, but people that actually care about editing and workflow won't be distracted by the Rotten Tomatoes' score. The was a COW interview/article with the editor of Sharknado 2 not to long ago and a couple posters were completely dismissive of it because it was Sharknado 2 (which is unfortunate because they missed out on an interesting article).

What's funny is that while some overzealous PPro and X supports will keep jumping up an down going , "Hey! Hey! PPro/X just edited a Hollywood feature film! Look at us! Look at us!" they will ignore that Avid has been used to edit so many feature films that it's just assumed that if it's a big Hollywood movie then Avid was used to cut it. If that fact is brought up then it immediately turns into Avid only gets used because of fear of change, gear-nepotism, conspiracy theories, etc.,. and the fact that Avid MC might actually be a worthwhile NLE never enters their brain.

Lunatic fanboys make their own reality.
