“I began editing exactly 12 years ago and there have been many changes in editing since then. It is so much easier now to produce professional work that would have been cost prohibitive before. I first used Magic Bullet with the initial Mac version which gave me all the ‘looks’ I needed.
But what I discovered with Magic Bullet was a very strong and stable plugin and most importantly it was affordable for freelancers like me. Magic Bullet gave me all the tools I needed to achieve the same results as the big studios. I continually use Magic Bullet Mojo and Magic Bullet Looks but also use them at the same time. The mix gives quite incredible results and as I’ve said before ‘gives nice accidents’.
Jason Arber, the director of Magnesium, had been following my work for some years. He saw a little experimental film I made using a lot of macro shots so he asked me to produce the trailer for Magnesium. ‘Magnesium-Project’ the trailer took about 3 weeks to edit but a lot of time was spent setting the scenes and I actually had to source the mechanical arm myself from a lab in Germany”.
Pierre’s most recent work above is a a trailer for a movie called Magnesium. Magnesium, ‘named after the metal skeletons that give the biodroids their strength’, is a high octane, action thriller that moves quickly between scenes exploring the relationship between man and machine and explosive action sequences full of gun battles and bloody violence.
Pierre’s talents bring an almost sensual feel to the trailer and every time I watch it I see something special and extraordinary in the lighting and typography.
