Avid® (NASDAQ: AVID) today congratulates the professional video editing community on their achievements at the 64th annual American Cinema Editors (ACE) Eddie Awards held in Los Angeles on February 7. Many of the nominated and award-winning films were cut by Avid editors who trust the industry’s foremost nonlinear editing solution, Avid Media Composer®, for its reliability and flexibility to create higher quality, inspiring content.
Avid Media Composer was used by various editors who took home awards on the night, including Christopher Rouse for Best Edited Feature Film (Dramatic) Captain Phillips, and Jay Cassidy, Crispin Struthers and Alan Baumgarten for Best Edited Feature Film (Comedy or Musical)American Hustle.
“It’s a thrill for our film to be nominated, especially this year with so many excellent movies and so much great editing. It’s true what they say; it’s a huge honor, especially when the nomination comes from your peers,” said Kevin Tent, nominated for Best Edited Feature Film (Comedy or Musical) for Nebraska. “Helping us all the way to the finish line was Media Composer. An amazing machine. Truly the editor’s best friend.”
