16 NO ONE WORK S I N A VACUUM A Brief Pause to Discuss Negative Cutting in the Modern World Avid’s Film Composer and Final Cut Pro’s Cinema Tools came into being to allow editors cutting on workstations to create accurate negative cut lists. It’s vital that the negative cutters know that a certain video frame refers exactly to a corresponding frame of negative. This is not a good place for approximations. Negative cutting was more straightforward in the days of sprockets. You simply put the 35 mm workprint into a sync block, read the key numbers from the print (numbers that were printed directly from the original negative onto the workprint), and found the corresponding piece of negative.

CHA P T ER 4 The Sound Department There’s no such thing as a “typical” small feature film, so it’s difficult to describe a typical sound team. You may be working with a team of 15 or more people, but more than likely it will be less than 6. The Players The following sections describe the important players who should be working on any sound team. Supervising Sound Editor The boss. Commonly the only member of the sound team hired directly by the production and usually selected by either the director or the picture editor.

Once the negative is transferred to tape, the speeded-up picture is loaded into the picture editing computer. The workstation is then placed in “film mode,” which again slows the film to its native 24 fps, keeping track of which fields the workstation doubled to make the speed change. Now the sound—which never changed speed—is loaded into the workstation and synced with the picture. As in the NTSC model, the picture assistant will create a database that contains scene, take, timecode, sound roll number, and so on.
