9780615487755: The Avid Assistant Editor's Handbook (Volume 1)

The Avid Assistant Editor’s Handbook presents new users with what should be their first experience with this powerful software. Drawing from common Avid assistant editor tasks, the book starts with digitizing and ends with onlining and the final delivery of a show. There is also a comprehensive chapter on multigrouping that details this often-used process and often-encountered job requirement. The Avid Assistant Editor’s Handbook provides new users a solid foundation for working in Avid, and it can accelerate an Avid assistant editor’s transition to a coveted editor role.

About the Author:

Kyra Coffie, an editor for over a decade, has worked for companies that produce programming for TLC, MTV, VH1 networks, The National Geographic Channel and the Discovery Channel. A native of Washington, D.C., Ms. Coffie took positions as an assistant editor while breaking into the Los Angeles market, and her editing background allowed her to make assistant editing processes more standardized, efficient, and easy to learn. The Avid Assistant Editor’s Handbook is a product of her time in L.A., and it’s her hope that any individual wanting to learn Avid will be able to do so with her book.

Review:

"One of the clearest technical manuals about the use of Avid that I have seen, Coffie's fine tome should prove invaluable to any beginner first setting foot into the Avid editing workflow." --Ray Zone, Editor's Guild Magazine

"This is not a mindless instruction manual -- this is a working assistant editor's bible, built from experience and success. It will educate you, it will demystify a daunting subject, and it will allow you to become a valued asset, as important and marketable as the best editor."--Jonathan Moser, Post Magazine

"Coffie expands and remains focused on the tasks of an Assistant Editor (AE).  Nothing more, nothing less - making The Avid Assistant Editor's Handbook a Welterweight Champion text; trim and lean, offering a knockout punch in the need to know purview of an AE."--Gordon A. Burkell, founder Art of the Guillotine

"The title of this book says it all. It is a well conceived and executed guide for anyone who is working, or hoping to work as an assistant editor."--Sam Kauffmann, Author
