Jonathan Eric Tyrrell had a choice: carry on commuting long distances for his job, or organise his life around working from home. He tells us why and how he took the decision to hit the reset button; work from home and start spending a bit more time with his family.

We are in a very different and testing time at the moment. A lot of freelance editors are at home having had their work cancelled, some right up to September. They will be back at their keyboards hopefully some time this year, but the industry has changed.

Oliver Peters talks to director Brantley Gutierrez and editor Ryan P. Adams on why Final Cut Pro X was the perfect tool to edit Paul McCartney's 'Who Cares' music video.

The Covid-19 pandemic has hit us all, hopefully just with work being cancelled. We have put together a list of resources that might help with remote editing & companies that are offering special services during this time.

The Banker is a film staring Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Nia Long, and Nicholas Hoult. In theatres now and available on AppleTV+ shortly, it was shot on film and edited in Final Cut Pro X. Oliver Peters talks to the producer and editor, Joel Viertel.

Adam Schoales has a regular job every year of putting together a short 'highlights' film of the last night of the Toronto International Film Festival. This year, he thought he would do a screen capture of the 10 hour Final Cut Pro X edit process - and then speed it up to 10 minutes! 

At about this time in the year, we start to look forward to the NAB show in Las Vegas. It's slightly different this year. With the threat of being exposed to coronavirus, AJA is the first big company to say they are not attending.

If you've spent any time in Final Cut Pro X discussion forums, then you've probably run across posts by Tangier Clarke, a film editor based in Los Angeles. Clarke was an early convert to FCPX and recently handled the post-production finishing for the film, Jezebel. I was intrigued by the fact that Jezebel was picked up by Netflix, a streaming platform that has been driving many modern technical standards. This was a good springboard to chat with Clarke and see how FCPX fared as the editing tool of choice.
