4K feature film edit workflow - how to edit 4K in Premiere via proxies

Last year I edited a feature film, all shot on BMPC4K, in ProRes HQ. It's called Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg? and you can see more, including the trailer, at

So with that set, there was a lot of footage to store. Also, to share the workload and speed things up we had 3 editors. This caused a bit of pondering about how to do it. I talk about our solution here...

This is just our method, based on the experiences of other film makers we know. Would be good if people had other methods they think are better! If so, share in the comments!
