Million Dollar Cold Case

When Channel 7 approached me to set up this post production facility for to create 4 investigative crime shows. They didn’t have a lot of money. So that ruled out Avid and ISIS.

The style of the show was to be interviews all shot green screen with high end recreations and old news archive. I knew all of this could be achieved with Final Cut Pro X.

Using the Lumaforge Jellyfish we were able to set up :

An Assistant station managing all media and allocating projects to editors and producers.

Two dedicated edit stations, each working on their own case files.

4 Producer stations where story producers could go through interviews and even construct storylines.

The Lumaforge Jellyfish handled all this with no problems.
It was such a success we made the news at ProVideo Coalition.

The series was two 90 minute and two 60 minute episodes with 3 and 2 case files respectively.
It rated extremely well and more importantly lead to the conviction of a killer.

Outback Brothers

With extra funding secured we were now able to make the show Outback Paramedic was always meant to be.

This 6 part half hour series showcases the Falzon family and their efforts to live and educate people about sustainability in one of the most hostile places in Australia.

Working as director, camera and of course editor this is some of the work of which I am most proud.
It’s good to work on things that can help make a difference.

Brothers’ Nest

This blacker than black comedy is some of the most fun I’ve had in my career working as an editor.
So satisfying. Once again teaming up with my great friend Clayton Jacobson we were able to mould a riveting story with razor sharp edges into existence.

All editing done collaboratively in Final Cut Pro X. It really showed the power of this amazing NLE.

Within 24 hours of filming I had rough cuts done and all timecode rushes up on Frame.io (another amazing tool for film makers) so crew could view them on their phones on location.

This was thanks to two wonderful helper apps.
