From Editor to Preditor: Mastering the Post Production Workflow From Conception to Creation

From Editor to Preditor: Mastering the Post Production Workflow From Conception to Creation
The first and only class of its kind, Preditor from Manhattan Edit Workshop begins September 17th

New York, New York – August 26, 2013 – Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEWShop:, the cutting-edge authorized digital training destination for post-production and content creators, recently announced its brand new class, From Editor to Preditor, which will premiere on Tuesday, September 17th. The first and only class of its kind, editors will learn the skills they need to become post-producers, and ultimately, “preditors.” The highly anticipated workshop, taught by Emmy Award-winning television producer Mark King, who has produced work for networks including ABC, HBO and ESPN, has a limited number of seats available, providing students with a more hands-on, guided learning experience.

“No longer are roles such as producer and editor mutually exclusive, making it more important now more than ever to be multifaceted,” comments MEWShop founder, Josh Apter, who helped design the class. “Technology today lets creatives easily blend roles, fully realizing their ideas from concept to finished product. MEWShop's Preditor workshop focuses on the techniques and technology used in both roles, providing a strong foundation for students to successfully fill this growing niche.”

Over the course of the class, students will have access to all footage and interviews that were shot for a segment that has already aired. Students will work with this footage to recreate the segment as their own unique piece of work. Following the same procedures a typical post-producer is required to follow, participants will submit scripts for approval, handpick the segment’s soundtrack and work with editors (fellow students in the class) to produce the final segment. Throughout the process, editors will learn how to develop a good open and close as well as what the viewers need to see and hear in between in order create an engaging story. Students are invited to take their finished segments with them to use on their reels.
