Sixteen19 and Avid Media Composer

sixteen19For Men In Black 3 (directed by Barry Sonnenfeld), Postproduction Supervisor Paul Levin and First Assistant Editor Jason Solberg relied on Sixteen19’s Avid Media Composers to keep the action film on track during its New York production last summer. “After kicking off the editorial process in Manhattan, we shifted to East Hampton in July,” reports Levin. Working away from Los Angeles made expert technical support and workflow oversight critical. “Everyone on MIB3 was at the top of their game, and we were committed to insuring total reliability for every piece of gear,” reports Sixteen19 Managing Director Claire Shanley.

Sixteen19 also announced that the company’s editor Anthony Cortese won three Sports Emmys for his work on the documentary A Game of Honor for Showtime/CBS Sports.

With The River (starring Mel Gibson) as one of his first credits, Myers knows his way around action and suspense films, and his most recent feature, the mockumentary And They’re Off, involves the world of horse racing. Regardless of the genre, when Myers edits a project he works from the premise that each scene tells a small story with a beginning, middle and end. “Any action scene to me is about telling a story and about showing who has the upper hand at any moment and who ends up being the victor at the end of the scene,” explains Myers.
