Every film or show that we watch, no matter how great the final cut, has its problems during production. Whether it's a bad performance from an actor, a hole in the story or script, continuity or pacing issues, or something being placed in a shot that shouldn't be, there's no shortage of problems encountered once postproduction has begun. Fixing these problems then becomes the job of the editor. This book provides those editors with creative editing solutions they can employ to overcome these problems and is the key to nursing a sick project back to health in the editing room. Though the book takes an application-agnostic approach, specific solutions are presented for today's most commonly used non-linear editing applications. Solutions more relevant to certain genres are discussed in-depth, as are solutions that editors can employ through the use of simple VFX techniques. Case studies and interviews with Hollywood editors provide readers with real-world problems encountered, and solutions used to overcome them. The companion website provides Quicktime videos and Flash animations visually demonstrating problems and how they were dealt with.

The Craft of Corporate Journalism is a dynamic reference guide for business journalists, corporate communicators, and writers and editors of organizational publications. It is an indispensable manual that will be used daily by beginners and seasoned corporate writers/editors alike in the daily business of crafting creative organizational publications. Lionel Fisher writes in a fresh, down-to-earth style honed by his forty-five years of experience as a corporate communicator, newspaper correspondent/columnist, advertising/public relations creative director-copy chief, and as a freelance writer specializing in business-sales-marketing-organizational communications. He provides essential, hands-on counsel, instruction and advice on the esoteric challenges of corporate writing. The seminal message Fisher conveys is that business-related magazines, newsletters, ezines, and other organizational publications need not be dull, dry, or merely informational. Rather, corporate journalists must earn and sustain the interest of their readers, which can only be done with powerful writing. His descriptive instruction and crisp counsel is packed with riveting examples of journalistic and business prose to illustrate critical points as he teaches organizational communicators how to write. The author's engaging, iconoclastic style instructs on the essentials of corporate and business writing: How to craft powerful leads; compose and edit articles with the proper structure, pace, and flow; nurture creativity; dissolve writer's block and interview effectively. But organizational communicators must do more than just produce outstanding feature and news stories. They are also responsible for organizing their material into attractive, seductive packages. They must target and involve readers; present appetizing arrays of news and feature stories; define and tailor their publications; set stylistic guidelines; motivate correspondents; and much, much more.
