Editing Long-Form & Episodic Documentaries

Editing Long-Form & Episodic Documentaries


With sets shutdown, the options for creating original content is limited-or is it? Hot off the release of hit documentary mini-series, ESPN’s The Last Dance, productions across the country are digging into the archive, and looking to create engaging content that consists primarily of previous episodes, interviews, and sound bites. And, now with stay-at-home orders, production teams need a better way to find, collaborate, edit, and finish assets. During this session, Key Code Media will dig into the details for creating an efficient, budget-sensitive workflow for Long-Form & Episodic Documentaries.

We’re also inviting the team from Avid Technology to demonstrate their latest tools in Media Composer for documentary filmmakers. Quickly find all relevant clips phonetically by simply typing a word or phrase with PhraseFind. Avid will also show how post-production teams that need to find footage fast, collaborate easily, and create stories quickly, can do so from anywhere with their Editorial Management web browser feature.

You’re not going to want to miss these back-to-back interviews and live demonstrations.
