TL;DR creating proxies from your footage

So you have backed up your footage and you are now ready to edit. If you have the computer to handle it and you know you will be the sole editor from start to finish on the project, then, great, proxies are probably not necessary. But, if your computer struggles at the sight of compute-intensive H.264 files, especially 4K or higher ones, or if you have even the inkling that the edit might be sent to someone else for coloring, audio, final touches, whatever, then proxies are a very good idea.

The BetaLoop

“The BetaLoop” is a short film made with Connecticut Filmworks for the 2018 New Haven 48 Hour Film Project. We had 48 hours to write, film, and edit the whole project. I did the editing during the competition and also after for the “director’s cut.”

In the end, we won runner-up best picture, the audience award for group A, best sound design, and best special effects.
