ZOIC EDITORIAL LAUNCHES(January 12, 2010)
DMN Newswire--2010-1-12--California's Zoic Studios, a leading digital production and visual effects company, is proud to offer Zoic Editorial, an "editorial house within a VFX house" that delivers dedicated, cutting-edge editorial services. Zoic Editorial serves both Zoic VFX clients and anyone with a project deserving the highest level of editorial, creative and technical expertise.
Zoic Editorial is the creation of Zoic Senior Editor Dmitri Gueer. His experience includes commercial editorial (Tropicana, SeaWorld, Citgo, Gamefly, Busch Gardens, Ask.com, Craftsman, Toyota, Dodge and Pontiac); VFX editorial (Killzone 2, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation title sequence; Linkin Park "Points of Authority" music video, Consol Energy "The End", Star Wars: The Old Republic, MAG: Massive Action Game); and promotional editorial (American Idol, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, ESPN).
Gueer has been a part of the Zoic Studios team since its inception, and has worked as a professional editor since the turn of the millennium. He began his career in the final days of linear editing, and brings a more traditional, holistic philosophy to his editorial work. While Gueer is a master of both hardware and software (Avid, FCP, After Effects and Photoshop), and has vast expertise in format and video conversion standards, he is first and foremost an editor and an artist.
During his career with Zoic, Gueer has made several major improvements in VFX editorial practices. These include what Gueer calls "The New Offline," which lets the clients pre-visualize the final edit in a way that is far superior to traditional rough cuts.
Gueer has also made important improvements to the standard editorial pipeline, including his "binning" system, which provides tapeless delivery of VFX shots to the client via Avid or Final Cut Pro media files. Zoic was the first digital production company to offer these breakthrough advances.
By combining the editorial and VFX production aspects of a project under the same roof, Zoic Editorial can offer the following benefits: one-on-one interaction between client and editor; direct communication between the editor and the VFX supervisors and lead artists; and editorial involvement at all stages of the VFX process, from the very beginning to well after the edit is locked. All of which makes the client creative experience richer and more productive.
Gueer is dedicated to making Zoic Editorial a go-to name in the entertainment industry. "I'm extremely passionate about editing. Clients love that I care so deeply about their projects - and that's the best compliment I can receive."
