US Coast Guard urges those providing relief to take caution before heading to the Bahamas

first_imgWhile the US Coast Guard is extremely grateful for all the support from individuals and agencies who would like to lend a helping hand in the Bahamas, they are also issuing caution to those who are planning to make the trip themselves to deliver food and aid.Chris Haarer, the USCG auxiliary division commander wants the public to consider the facts before making the trip so that those who decide to go, don’t end up needing aid themselves:“Not only will there be no gas, but there’s no lodging, no food, no electricity, there’s probably very limited cell coverage,” said Haarer.“We certainly would like to discourage this and have everyone think ahead just think about all the destruction that’s taken place and what’s not available to the general citizen as they go over there,” Haarer continued.While the Coast Guard says they can not prevent people from going over to the Bahamas at this time, they did recommend that those who are considering making the trip, also check to make sure they will have all they need when they get there, including safety materials, a contact, food, water, and extra gas.If you can not insure these measures for yourself, consider donating to another agency such as FEMA, The RedCross, or Walpol who each have set ups in the area.Officials say they have also increased inspections for boats coming into inlets along the Florida Florida specifically checking for those attempting to relocate Bahamians without proper documentation.For more on safety tips and requirements contact the US Coast Guard via (305)415-6869.last_img read more

What We Can Learn from Editing with the Coen Brothers

first_imgEditor Eyal Dimant shares some insights based on his work editing with the Coen Brothers on “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.”While we all know and love the Coen Brothers for their filmmaking masterpieces spanning from Raising Arizona to The Big Lebowski to their latest Netflix anthology series The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, we usually associate the brothers as savant writer and directors.However, editing has long been a part of the duo’s filmmaking expertise (and was actually how Joel got his break into the industry, working as an assistant editor on Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead in 1981). True auteurs, the Coen Brothers more often than not write, direct, produce and edit their own features, including: Blood Simple, Barton Fink, Fargo and No Country for Old Men.Despite their film editing upbringings, the brothers have finally made the transition to digital on their latest Netflix anthology feature The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. They’ve also begun to divvy up their filmmaking control on projects like Buster Scruggs and have enlisted the help of other collaborators and editors to help out.One lucky editor was Eyal Dimant. In an interview with Adobe, he had some pretty interesting insights to share from his experience working with the Coen Brothers on their latest film.Sitting in with the Coen BrothersImage via Fargo (Gramercy Pictures).Image from Fargo (via.I was very fortunate. Usually, you’re an editor and you’re working with directors, or you’re an assistant to other editors. Here, I got to sit next to the directors, who were also the editors, for nearly a year. I learned a lot about how they edit, which is very different from most other workflows.Eyal was brought onto The Ballad of Buster Scruggs as an associate editor to help streamline their digital editing process. If you really want to learn a skill set, the best way is to go out do it yourself. The second best way is to work side-by-side with those who have done it time and time again. Look for those with enough valuable wisdom to share.How Filmmakers EditImage via Raising Arizona (20th Century Fox).Joel and Ethan are usually writing and directing, so they’re not in Premiere Pro every day. We wanted to make sure they had a seamless editing experience that allowed for maximum collaboration.There’s a big difference between being asked to sit down and edit a project for someone else, and being a filmmaker yourself and trying to sit down to edit your own film. For the Coen Brothers, as Eyal explains, the editing process was never a traditional singular focus gig. After all, they always had other things going on. It was Eyal’s role to streamline that process to make it accessible for the brothers to bounce in and out of.A Collaborative Editing ProcessImage via Barton Fink (via 20th Century Fox).It’s interesting to peek into how the two brothers were able to edit together collaboratively. Eyal shares that they had a workflow where “Ethan would pull his selections from the dailies and move them into a bin. When he was done, he’d ring a bell. That was the cue for Eyal and his fellow editors to refresh Joel’s system, where Joel would pull all the selections and insert them into the timeline.”This two-person daily review system would help weed out unwanted shots. It also focused both of them on their best footage and what they’d be looking for moving forward.Trying New Styles and EffectsImage via The Big Lebowski (Gramercy Pictures).The most fun part of the job was being a sounding board, giving them suggestions and ideas as they worked. I would usually jump in to do split screens, or any other optical effects that Joel wanted to be able to see immediately in the cut.The Coen Brothers have never been traditional filmmaking purists in a lot of senses. They’ve often found fun and creative ways to utilize split-screens and other simple visual tricks (most notably in The Big Lebowski) in their films. So, part of Eyal’s job was to be their editing associate resource to jump in and help on these optical effects. That way the brothers could check out and review them.Never Stop Challenging Yourself and LearningImage via No Country for Old Men (Paramount Vantage).My ideal project is one where I’m surrounded by people who are smarter than I am. I like to learn new things and be challenged on a daily basis, which is exactly what happened with this film.If Eyal and the Coen Brothers can teach the rest of us anything about editing, it’s that the most important aspect in a filmmaker is the desire to keep learning. Even with Eyal’s 20 years of industry experience, and the Coen Brothers decades of filmmaking success, both are always looking for new challenges and ways to grow their craft.
