Michael Berenbaum, ACE won two Emmys and two Eddies for Best editing for Desperate Housewivesand Sex and the City. His work also includes editing both Sex and the City movies, and other TV series including The Wire, Nurse Jackie, The Americans and Marco Polo. Art of the Cut interviewed Berenbaum before he spoke at the Manhattan Edit Workshop’s Sight, Sound and Story post-production event.
As the editor of Focus Features' fall release Hollywoodland, Michael Berenbaum can empathize with the plight of the film's real-life character, George Reeves and perils of being typecast. Television's first Superman, Reeves (played by Ben Affleck) slowly deteriorates throughout the film's flashbacks as his dreams of becoming a serious actor are crushed by the very public weight of his red cape.
This past fall, Michael Berenbaum served as Manhattan Edit Workshop Artist-in-Residence for the Six Week Art-of-Editing course. Berenbaum mentored a class of students and worked with them on a unique project.
