first_imgBrentford head coach Dean Smith believes defender Emmanuel Onariase can compete for a first-team spot.Onariase, 19, was brought in from West Ham and was the Bees’ only signing in January as they failed to land a senior replacement for centre-back James Tarkowski, who was sold to Burnley.But Smith insists teenager Onariase has all the attributes to fight for a place alongside Harlee Dean, Jack O’Connell and Yoann Barbet.He said: “He’s a ball-playing centre-back who will go and compete as well. He fits the mould of the football club of players we’re looking for.“He’s a young player, he’s learning the game as he’s going, but he’s been training regularly with West Ham’s first-team squad, I think that gets overlooked slightly.“Anybody who knows my history will know that I’m not afraid of throwing young players in if I think they’re quite capable.”See also:Bees snap up West Ham defenderBrentford’s Tarkowski seals move to BurnleyBrentford boss not concerned by lack of January signingsSwift admits he is uncertain of futureSaunders signs new deal at BrentfordBamford backed to shine at Norwich by Chelsea team-mate SwiftFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more


first_imgIn this scene from HBO’s successful True Detective, editor Meg Reticker discusses how the 8th episode differed from the rest of the series in terms of it’s more linear structure, compared to the back and forth of other episodes. Check out this previous post for more True Detective insights.“There are times when you have doubts, are we really going to hold this take? And you have to believe in, that it’s really going to air that way.”  – Meg Reticker The video editors of television’s most popular shows offer a wealth of insight into how they solve their most challenging edits.If you’re a fan of House of Cards, True Detective, Nurse Jackie or The Americans, then you’ll love these insights from some of television’s best editors on solving challenging edit problems. All of these clips were recorded at a recent Sight, Sound and Story event produced by The Manhattan Edit Workshop.In the first clip you can hear ACE editor Cindy Mollo describe how a scene was reworked in House Of Cards from her first cut to the final broadcast episode. The challenge was having to ask Kevin Spacey to re-do his performance and therefore re-shoot and re-work the scene. But as Cindy says…“It just cut like butter, he’s so professional and it just raised everyone else’s game on set.” – Cindy Mollo ACE Gary Levy the ACE editor of Nurse Jackie, talks through the challenge of having to seamlessly combine two different emotional tones, as well as frame-rates, in a nuanced episode of the show. This is a great example of the editor’s common challenge of adapting an idea that didn’t quite work out in the shooting process into something that really plays.“Even those it’s a comedy, it’s incredibly serious. There’s a lot of technical editing choices being made there. Especially with tone and with those slow-mos.” – Gary Levy ACEcenter_img In this last clip from The Americans, Michael Berenbaum ACE describes how he had to change the musical score to an already cut scene at the last minute. But with a little assistance from the composer and a lot of luck, everything worked out.“I was told you can’t use that music, you have to use this Pete Townsend song that was recorded for another show. And my first thought was “How is that ever going to work?” – Michael Berenbaum ACElast_img read more


first_imgIn the latest version of Adobe Premiere Pro, you can put your graphics and video elements exactly where you want them — with new Rulers and Guides.The latest version of Adobe Premiere Pro has been released, and one of the most anticipated new features is Rulers and Guides. Much like After Effects and Photoshop, users can now add custom guides to the Program Monitor. Let’s take a step-by-step look at how to create a custom overlay setup for exporting square videos to social media platforms. Step 1 — Turn on Guides and RulersBefore I start creating custom guides for my Program Monitor, I first need to turn them on so I can see them. For this, I’ll select View > View Guides and View > Show Rulers. To avoid constantly jumping up into the View menu, I’ll add shortcut buttons. To add them, I’ll click on the Button Editor (plus sign) at the bottom right of the panel, then simply drag the two buttons over to add them.Step 2 — Add Custom GuidesOne of the features (I absolutely love) about the new guides is that you can position them precisely via a pixel or percent value. To add a square value, I’ll need to perform some basic math. If I’m editing in a 1920×1080 format, then I’ll want to add vertical guides to measure 1080 between them, from the center of the frame. For this, I’ll simply subtract 1920×1080, which will give me 840 pixels. Now, I’ll divide by two. This will give me the distance of each guide from the outer edges (420 pixels). To add a guide, I’ll go to View > Add Guide, or simply right-click on the ruler. In the Add Guide dialogue box, I can now create two guides. I’ll simply put the position at 420 pixels, making sure that the orientation is set to vertical, then create one set to the left and the next to the right. Finally, I’ll add a few additional guides so I can see the upper and lower thirds, as well as the center of the frame. For these, I can use basic percent values — such as 50 and 33. Step 3 — Position Your ElementsNow, it’s time to position my elements. To make sure I don’t accidentally move one of my guides, I’ll select View > Lock Guides. Next, I’ll bring in my video clips, as well as any graphic elements. To perfectly position items, I’ll turn on snapping via View > Snap in Program Monitor. If I’m not happy with any of the guides, I can unlock them and simply drag them off screen. Step 4 — Save and ShareIf I’d like to reuse this setup for future use, I’ll go to View > Guide Templates > Save Guides as Template. To rename, import, or export templates, I’ll go to View > Guide Templates > Manage Guides. This can be extremely useful if I’m working on a team and we need to position branding elements. It helps keep everything uniform. Now that I think of it, how did users perfectly position elements prior to this release?Looking for more video tutorials?

It nearly happened again tonight during the ACC Tournament title game against UVA, but Williams appeared to steady himself by taking a knee.

My life’s been haunted for 30 years.”In 2013, Taylor and other victims protested when Quarles petitioned to be released from the hospital. He eventually went back into treatment at Coalinga.Taylor said she was told that when Quarles was sentenced to 50 years in prison, “50 years meant 50 years.”Gill said he had confidence that Quarles would be properly monitored by Liberty Healthcare, the company contracted to run the conditional release program.The judge ordered Quarles to be placed in the Jacumba Hot Springs residence by Nov. 30.Hearing Continued: Ginger Jeffries, KUSI Newsroom Posted: October 12, 2018 If you are on a mobile device, click here.Part 1: Ginger Jeffries, KUSI Newsroom, If you are on a mobile device, click here.RELATED STORY: Hearing to decide placement of sexually violent predator Alvin Quarles October 12, 2018 Categories: California News, Local San Diego News Tags: Alvin Quarles FacebookTwitterlast_img read more
