Lakeshore Entertainment – Wide Release

I was hired during the production of The Human Stain by Academy Award-nominated editor Chris Tellefsen and his 1st assistant, Kent Blocher, to help out with an early experiment in digital dailies. The projector was the latest and greatest, but it was still as big as a Volkswagen, and it needed two people just to move it. The projection media was of course still tape based, so we set up an appletalk connection to an old Mac laptop (with a built in trackball!) to control the deck remotely and edit the playlists.
