Adobe: David Lowery Returns to The Sundance Film Festival with A Ghost Story
In this Adobe blog post, filmmaker David Lowery discusses A Ghost Story, which premiered at Sundance 2017. This is David's first film edited entirely in Premiere Pro (see 1:57), and He commends Adobe for giving independents and low-budget filmmakers creative tools that used to be unaccessible. In his video interview (at 1:07) David offers some really great insight into how being an editor and having an editorial mindset helps give him a "head start" in his scripting and directorial decisions. And at 1:30 explains how he and his team used the entire Creative Cloud suite on A Ghost Story, from rough cuts in Premiere Pro to final compositing in After Effects.
I was a Final Cut Pro 7 user, but after Final Cut 10 came out I downloaded Adobe Premiere Pro to try it out. It was really easy to pick up on everything. My first use of it in a practical way was on the set of Pete’s Dragon. It was a snap, just as I had expected. —David Lowery, Adobe Creative Cloud Blog
