“Are you having trouble with the timing of your previs or blockout? I find that it’s easier to start with the music. Find a guide track that has the right mood and tempo for your scene- the cadence and patterns in the music should help you to guide your edit. That’s my tip!”

Interesting fact: Our War Thunder Heroes Trailer has been viewed by over 7.3 million people since its launch in September, 2013!
