Legendary editor Anne V. Coates has won two and been nominated for five Oscars (including a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007). The nonagenarian editor refuses to use Avid; instead, Coates said she "has her own system" which was custom-made to her preferences—much like the one made for Thelma Schoonmaker—though she refuses to elaborate on the details.
Please join renowned author Bobbie O’Steen (“Cut to the Chase”, “The Invisible Cut”) for an in-depth discussion with master film editor Jay Rabinowitz, ACE who will screen footage and talk about his work on Night on Earth, Affliction, Requiem for a Dream and I’m Not There. This event is presented by Manhattan Edit Workshop and will take place at NYU’s Cantor Film Center on April 26th from 7 to 9 pm.
Whenever editors begin a film, they enter into completely new territory and must adjust to and understand the director's way of working and thinking. Editor Jay Rabinowitz, ACE, has traveled among a particularly diverse group of directors and has been able to immerse himself in their worlds - while showing the courage and ingenuity to surprise them,, which is what really sets and editor apart. All of this was in evidence when we discussed and screened some of Rabinowitz's work in December for my "Inside the Cutting Room" series, produced by ProductionCONN and Manhattan Edit Workshop.
