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, Hacks, The Crown, and WandaVision.

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