Hello everyone! My goodness it has been quite some time since I last wrote a blog post. A mixture of me wrapping up my job with Audience in October and the holidays put my update stream on hold. But I am back now and have some great news!
As of January, I am currently working as an Assistant Editor with Reel FX on the animated feature film, Ugly Dolls. I've never worked outside of Southern California for a job, and getting to come out to Dallas has been a wonderful change of pace. Even though I've really only just begun with the Reel FX team, I've greatly enjoyed the camaraderie they share. They're a very encouraging bunch who love their work as much as they love their Texas barbecue (the pulled pork here is amazing!). It's been such a blessing to not only be working again, but to be a part of a team that truly wants each other to succeed.
Though I can't say much about the project itself, I can say that I've had the opportunity to cut more sequences for the editors. In addition, I've created custom watermarks for us to use for exports. After seeing how many titles we were having to render out each time we did an export, I decided to research custom AVID watermark creation. I eventually created unique bin views with custom columns that we could fill out. The watermarks directly reference these columns and update with the appropriate information in real time, allowing us to make a quick changes to any text without bloating our renders drive.
I am truly excited to see where things go and I thank God each day for blessing me with a position that fills me with great joy each time I come in for a new day of work.
