Documentary director and editor reveals magical world in his latest film, Iceland: Land of Ice and Fire, created with Adobe Creative Cloud
Documentary Film Editor and Director Andrew Chastney’s passion for natural history is clear in the work he’s done for the BBC, Disney Nature, Animal Planet, and National Geographic. Most recently, he explored the magical secrets of Iceland for the BBC documentary, Iceland: Land of Ice and Fire, which tells the story of the animals, people, and land that make up this wild island. Andy used Adobe Creative Cloud to help create the ambitious documentary, which aired on the BBC in May 2015.
When I first heard of Adobe Video World, I thought “What is this place and how do I get there?” I envisioned a planet, not unlike Coruscant from Star Wars, where Adobe Jedis convene and discuss disturbances in the force. Come to learn this year’s Adobe Video World conference is the first of its kind, combining the successes of past Premiere Pro World and After Effects World Conferences into one 6-day Adobe galaxy… far far away in San Jose.

Live sports broadcast editing and effects specialist delivers the full package for top sporting events with Adobe Creative Cloud
Covering live sports broadcasts requires speed, cost-efficiency, and flexibility—and that’s where Will Newell excels. For 10 years, he’s done graphics, editing, live outdoor interviews, and broadcast delivery preparation for events including the U.S. Open and Formula 1 racing. Although he’s used Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Pro, his freelance business now relies on a Mac and Adobe Creative Cloud, including Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Here, Newell shares his experiences and talks about why Adobe Creative Cloud is an affordable, powerful option for a freelancer.
Adobe: How did you get your start?
Newell: I worked at an editing facility in Manchester, England in the machine room, as a runner, and then as an assistant editor. I moved to London a few years later and began freelancing. Sky Sports contacted me to do features, openers, closers, and so on. I hit the ground running working regularly on content for football, rugby, cricket, tennis, golf, and even darts matches. I went to Australia in 2012 for the first Sky Sports F1 race and have been doing primarily outdoor broadcasts ever since.
