RocketJump practices and teaches next-generation filmmaking

Makers of Video Game High School tackle 4K and connect with aspiring filmmakers with help from Adobe Creative Cloud

Millions of subscribers to the web show Video Game High School are a testament to the idea that if you produce it, they will come.

More than one billion views later, RocketJump, the production company he co-founded with partners Dez Dolly and Matthew Arnold, is showing no signs of slowing down.

Showcasing breathtaking mountains and raw athleticism

Epic freesking and snowboarding tour improves video workflow and productivity with Adobe Creative Cloud

The Freeride World Tour by The North Face (FWT) is the top big mountain freeskiing and snowboarding tour in the world. FWT doesn’t deal with artificial jumps and groomed slopes. Athletes use the entire slope, including overhangs and cliff-faces, choosing their own path down the mountain while demonstrating control and technique through fluid movements and jumps. The mountains don’t just up the action for the athletes; they also challenge the event photographers and cinematographers. David Arnaud, the producer who has been in charge of the television and video production on FWT since 2009, along with Editor Aurelie Monod and a crew of up to 35 people, work in extremely challenging conditions to bring the excitement of FWT to viewers.

Peter Mavromates helps orchestrate new workflow for Fincher’s “Gone Girl”

Post-production supervisor pushes quality and guides integration using Adobe Creative Cloud

In the past decade, Peter Mavromates has worked on more than a dozen feature films, as well as a few TV series, generally serving as post-production supervisor. One thing that many of his projects have in common is the director: David Fincher. Mavromates knows that working with Fincher means the standards will be high, but he likes it that way. For Gone Girl, the main challenge was implementing a completely new post-production pipeline that included fast machines and Adobe Creative Cloud video applications.

Vashi Nedomansky edits documentary on PTSD with Adobe Premiere Pro CC

With his latest project, Vashi Nedomansky took a detour from the sci-fi Sharknado thrillers to the real- life struggles of returning service members. Edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CC over 14 months, the feature-length documentary THAT WHICH I LOVE DESTROYS ME from producer/director Ric Roman Waugh culls hundreds of hours of footage from multiple cameras and codecs. The result is a powerful look at PTSD and how two Army Special Operations soldiers struggle to overcome it. The movie will appear on PIVOT TV on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2014. www.takepart.com/vets

Tyler Nelson assists with ambitious edit on “Gone Girl”

Assistant editor helps assemble post-production pipeline including Adobe Creative Cloud

As a child, Tyler Nelson liked to play with Legos. He enjoyed the process of building things, taking them apart, and building something new. Fast forward 20 years and Nelson is still constructing, but now he’s helping to create feature films instead of plastic brick structures. To him, the process isn’t that different—taking a huge amount of content and putting it together in a way that makes sense. He’s worked with David Fincher and Kirk Baxter on a number of projects, including the recently released Gone Girl, where he helped build the post-production pipeline that included Adobe Premiere Pro CC for editing and Adobe After Effects for opticals and visual effects.

Kirk Baxter, ACE, leads edit of “Gone Girl,” latest box office hit for David Fincher

Academy Award®-winning editor uses Adobe Premiere Pro CC to edit hit Hollywood feature

Kirk Baxter was attracted to cinema from a young age by films such as E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Star Wars. These “popcorn accessible” movies drew him in and fueled his aspirations. He started working for an Australian production company at age 17 and quickly recognized his affinity for editing. But never did he dream that one day he would be involved in the kinds of productions he works on regularly with filmmaker David Fincher.

As a two-time Academy Award® winner, Baxter has teamed with Fincher and his post-production crew on film and television projects, including The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and House of Cards. For Fincher’s latest film, Gone Girl, “Team Fincher” took the workflow to a new level using a production pipeline built around Adobe Creative Cloud video applications, with Adobe Premiere Pro CC as the hub.
