Avid is celebrating a number of Emmy Award wins and nominations for TV series that used its editing technology.
Both Outstanding Drama and Comedy series winners Succession and Ted Lasso were edited using Avid’s Media Composer editing software.
The solution also helped editor Jabez Olssen take home the award for Outstanding Picture Editing for A Nonfiction Programme for The Beatles: Get Back.
Other winners and nominees who relied on Media Composer included Barry, Stranger Things, Better Call Saul, Euphoria, Squid Game, Only Murders in the Building, Hacks, and Ozark.
Barry won the Emmy for Outstanding Single Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series, while also notching two other awards among its 14 Emmy nominations. Cutting on Avid Media Composer, Ali Greer, received her Emmy for Starting Now, the show’s season three finale.
“Getting to edit on Barry is a dream come true and I couldn’t be more honored to be recognized by my fellow editors and the TV academy,” said Greer. “I’m grateful to collaborate with an incredible team—none of this is possible without them—thankfully we can seamlessly work together because of Avid’s project sharing capabilities. Finding the right balance of humor and drama is a challenging part of editing Barry but, with Avid’s ScriptSync, shaping performances becomes much easier.”
“Our user creative community counted on Media Composer to help them deliver yet another year of totally captivating entertainment, from feels-good to nail-biting moments and series,” said Jeff Rosica, CEO and president, Avid. “Across Avid’s team, we’re thrilled to see our customers winning big and taking Emmy recognition for pushing the boundaries of storytelling in television and film.”
