You may know us (Avid) as the company that makes the tools used to create your favorite feature films, TV shows, and music. In a crazy (yet practical) twist, we decided to make a movie of our own. The result: Agent MX-Z3RO, a 15-minute indie movie that's meant to be a fun throwback to the '70s "shoot-em-up" action spy genre—think Eastwood meets Connery. Why'd we do it? Mainly, because it's difficult to secure demo material that we can use—without restriction—to teach filmmakers and post-production pros the same tools and workflows used across the industry to help them succeed.
