Beginning the audio edit of the post production sound process requires receiving the correct files and media from the editorial facility. I've always had my standard "list of deliverables", but over the past few years I've found that quite often the export of these files from Final Cut is not done properly. Thus, I've created a document (as well as explanations) outlining what a sound editor might need, why, and how to do it.
I’ve called this meeting today because I love you. And I want you to get help. You deserve it. We deserve it. As part of your family (albeit a lengthy alphanumeric system ID in your database), it’s my job to stick by you when the going gets tough. And tell you when you’re screwing the pooch.
