I first met the authors, Tashi Trieu and Scott Arundale, while I was doing graduate work at Chapman University. I'd studied film in undergrad during the 80s where four gang synchronizers, Kem flatbeds, and movieolas still ruled the day. Coming from a world pre-internet, I was more than a little intimidated by digital technology. But I was so impressed after meeting Tashi at Chapman, that I hired him as my colorist and DI Editor on my first feature-directing gig, the award winning indie film "@urFRENZ." I have had similar enjoyable experiences working with both Scott and Tashi since then. In this book, they walk the reader step by step through today's modern post, leaving nothing to chance. The authors explain simply and concisely the importance of understanding the workflow from preproduction through post. We’re beyond the days where filmmakers can fall back on the weathered phrase “fix it in post” to save their movies. This text makes it clear that in the brave new world of digital filmmaking making great films begins by understanding the data pipeline before the camera begins rolling. I can't recommend a work any higher.
Also, for a book on workflow, there were really no specific workflows presented. Instead they cover deliverables and workflow methods. I would have liked to have seen two or three end-to-end workflows presented, from acquisition to dailies and eventual delivery. This would include the lowest level details -- file types, storage methods, rendering times and any shortcuts -- everything that a complete workflow entails. Of course this varies for every camera, every production house and maybe every project, but a few examples would be very helpful.
Other than these comments I felt the book was worth reading. As others have noted, this is a textbook. I believe it is used in college classes. For that reason it is a little overpriced, but it is also available as a used book, which is what I purchased.
Hats off to the authors. I read this book cover to cover, and will recommend it to anyone. This should definitely be required for college students taking an editing class.
