Audiences won't see our decisions to cut or not to cut, but the decisions are there. " By editing simultaneous with production, Kahn completed the first assembly by the time Spielberg wrapped. "Michael likes to cut day-for-a-day. They shoot a day, he cuts a day," says Crane. But "Michael and Steven are never finished with a cut," he chuckles. "They're constantly going back over scenes." Kahn concedes that point. "Even on the dubbing stage, we're still debating whether a particular scene should be in or out," he says. "Steven is always very attentive to every pic- ture, but Lincoln is such an American film — it's all about us." Once Kahn locked his cut, Crane and Bro- shar sent EDLs to Skywalker Sound (see page 34 for an interview with the film's sound designer, Ben Burtt) to commence audio post, and EDLs and QuickTimes to Technicolor Hollywood to start pulling the negative and assembling the DI. Spielberg and Kaminski participated in the final color sessions with dailies colorist Mike Hatzer and colorist Chris Jensen. Andy Nelson and Gary Rydstrom mixed on the dubbing stage at Fox. "Michael and Steven were still making changes during the mix," Crane recalls. "The two of them are always thinking about the picture, always working to make the movie the best it can possibly be." "I think audiences will be surprised by Lincoln," Kahn predicts. "Steven really made Abraham Lincoln and his times come alive. It's never boring. It's really a fascinating study of freedom." XVM-245W XVM-325W XVM-175W You Can't Grade What You Can't See. Most Broadcast and Professional Monitors are 8-bit displays. That means they can reproduce only 16.7 Million Colors. However, a 10 or 12 bit video camera captures at least 1.07 Billion Colors. So, when you edit or grade on an 8-bit monitor, you are only seeing a fraction of the possible colors contained in true 10/12-bit content . TVLogic's 24" true 10-bit XVM-245W has been regarded by many as the most accurate LCD monitor available. Now, we've introduced two NEW 10-bit additions to the family - the XVM-175W and XVM- 325W. With full HD (1920x1080) native resolution, high-purity RGB LED (XVM-175W/245W) and Wide- Gamut EEFL (XVM-325W) backlight sytems, and integrated 3D LUTs - all three models in the XVM-Series are ideal for color critical applications yet retain all of the broadcast features found in our popular LVM Series. Add standard dual-link and 3G 4:4:4 input + support for import and export of popular color grading application LUT formats and TVLogic's XVM-Series let's you see ALL that you've been missing. 1-855-TVLOGIC (1-855-885-6442)
