Take a vicarious tour of the Adobe’s new LA Office with Hollywood editor Vashi Nedomansky.

In July, Adobe announced the opening of their new office space in downtown Santa Monica. With a state-of-the-art editing suite, the new office is aimed specifically at Hollywood editors and post-production professionals. It's a place for Hollywood filmmakers to learn and connect with Adobe's dedicated Hollywood team. In a blog post, Adobe's Margot Nack says,

"The facility is dedicated to delivering tools directly into the hands of the editor, gathering feedback on how to make these tools even more seamless, and deepening our relationships with the post-production community." —Margot Nack, Sr. Manager, Strategic Programs - Professional Film & Video

One early visitor to Adobe's new office space is Vashi Nedomansky, editor of 6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain, That Which I Love Destroys Me, Sharknado 2: The Second One. He posted several Tweets with photos, video, and comments on the new editing suite.

Dig the new digs

Adobe's new LA editing suite is impressive and beautiful. Let's take a closer look at what's visible in Vashi's Tweets.

75" 4K monitor

Easy on the eyes, but how about the wallet? In case you were wondering, 75 inches is 6.25 feet. I don't know about you, but I refuse to edit on any screen that's shorter than me. *winks*

Check out that Adobe decor

The suite looks to be fitted with industry-standard lighting and sound dampening materials. We love some of the aesthetic furnishing choices. Just one question, how can we get our hands on this?

Say no to black leather

You know you've reached a new level when you have an opinion about the upholstery in the editing suite. (Sidenote: black leather couch free to a good home. DM us.)

Let's take a look at what's on the desk in this editing suite.

Did you check between the cushions?

Adobe's LA editing suite has all the remotes: TV remote, A/C remote, VR headset and controllers. The usual.

Light Premiere Pro reading

We recognize that book! It's The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro, 2nd edition, by Jarle Leirpole, Dylan Osborn, Paul Murphy, and Andy Edwards. There's nothing light about it. It literally weighs 32 lbs. Check out what's cool in The Cool Stuff in Premiere Pro in our interview with the authors.

Avid Artist Mix 

Let's be honest. How much actual editing gets done in this suite? This Avid Artist Mix surface controller mimics the audio track mixer in Premiere Pro. For those unfamiliar with ASMR, it stands for A Sexual Motion Repeated. Now you know.

Vashi's Verdict...

High praise from a Hollywood editor.

Bropinion

The new LA office and editing suite is part of Adobe's continuing commitment to Hollywood. It's reassuring to see Adobe catering to their professional users, even if it is slightly pandering. When it comes to Premiere Pro, it's the pro market that drives innovation and produces features that all users enjoy. Adobe knows this and we applaud them for creating a place to hear directly from pro editors.

Now, when can we visit?
