Panels Aplenty!

Editors' Discussion Panel and Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve

The last Editors' Lounge of 2010 was a knockout event! A capacity crowd of over 100 guests joined us for a double-take on the meaning of PANEL...

pan•el ('panl) - noun
1. a flat board on which instruments or controls are fixed
2. a small group of people brought together to discuss a particular matter

Definition #1: Mark Thompson of Blackmagic Design was on hand for their premiere demonstration of the new DaVinci Resolve control panel and software solution for colorists. Scalable high-end grading at competitive cost - this product announcement has had plenty of buzz and people jumped at the chance to see it up close and in person!

Definition #2: Another edition of the Editors' Discussion Panel series, this time talking with editors and assistants about how they collaborate. The panel included editor Diana Friedberg (co-author of Make the Cut: A Guide to Becoming a Successful Assistant Editor in Film and TV), Emmy®-winning editor Steven Cohen (author of Avid Agility), and assistant editors Carsten Kurpanek and Peter Mergus. Discussion was moderated by writer Debra Kaufman (editor and founder of MobilizedTV).
