History’s Houdini miniseries “is more of a psychological thriller,” explains editor Sabrina Plisco, “so we used jump-cutting, freeze frames and contemporary sound and music to give an edginess to a classic story.”

The team used Avid Media Composer for the project. “Media Composer allows you to store so many different versions, which is important when experimenting with different styles,” Plisco says.
