Zack demonstrates how to organize your next editorial project to maximize efficiency and productivity and minimize the time needed to search for your media. Learn how to organize your main project folders and bins as well as your subfolders inside those bins, and also how to use a numbering system to customize how folders and bins are laid out.
- [Instructor] Let's be honest.…Project organization is definitely one of the…less sexy topics in the world of post.…Everybody wants to learn how to use…all the plug-ins, the effects,…and the various bells and whistles.…But I believe if you truly want to be great…in the room as an editor,…your first step is knowing where your material actually is.…Just imagine a painter sitting with a client.…A client asking, "Can you just add a little more red?"…And the painter saying, "Uh, I'm sorry,…I don't know where my red is right now."…don't make the same mistake,…spending exorbitant amounts of time…searching for footage with a director…or a producer in a room,…when it is possible to have virtually…everything at your fingertips,…as long as you remember where you put it.…
In this lesson, I'm going to show you my system…for organizing materials at the top level of my project.…But I want to emphasize before moving forwards…that this is my system, not the system.…I'm going to throw out suggestions and ideas,…and you can modify as you see fit.…
