In this edition of “Spotlight on an Editor,” we had the opportunity to sit with legendary editor of “Silence of the Lambs,” Craig McKay, ACE. For our April 2015 workshop, Mr. McKay visited and spoke with our Six Week Intensive students through our Artist in Residence program.
Sometimes Manhattan Edit Workshop will ask Artist in Residences to return again and again, because of their unique interaction with our students and their amazing ability to critique and mentor aspiring editors. In this edition of “Spotlight on an Editor,” one such Artist in Residence, Peter Frank, ACE, who has returned several times to work with our Six Week Intensive students to share his experiences.
