Avid celebrates Emmy success

The first-ever all women of colour editing team won the OutStanding Picture Editing for Variety Programming award for A Black Lady Sketch Show

Avid is celebrating the achievements of editors who used its Media Composer editing software to help create Emmy Award-winning and nominated productions, including A Black Lady Sketch Show, HacksThe Crown, and WandaVision.

The 73rd Emmys made history with the first-ever all women of colour editing team winning the OutStanding Picture Editing for Variety Programming award for A Black Lady Sketch Show.

“I’m so proud and humbled to be part of this historic win, which I share with the talented Daysha Broadway and Stephanie Filo,” said Jessica Hernández, ACE. “Avid’s technologies were an essential part of bringing A Black Lady Sketch Show to life.”

Among the nominees who used Media Composer include Nona Khodai, who was nominated for her work on Marvel’s WandaVision. “Working on WandaVision, there was no greater tool I would have rather used than Media Composer,” said Khodai. “The reliability the non-linear editing programme provides is crucial to the communication between the editorial staff, especially while we were all working from home. The fact we could work remotely and still be able to share projects was incredible and I know it already has changed how we all work going forward into the future.”

“Lockdown and restrictions were hard on everyone—audiences and content creators alike—but the editorial community came through with spectacular results in innovative ways,” said Jeff Rosica, CEO and president, Avid.

“The side-splitting comedy and compelling drama that today’s top creative professionals delivered gave everyone across the globe the entertainment we needed during a difficult time. Avid is extremely proud and congratulates all of our talented customers on their outstanding achievements at this year’s Emmy Awards and beyond,” he added.

Look out for the October issue of TVBEurope which will include an interview with Khodai about her work on WandaVision.
