The Innovative Interpretations of Jay Rabinowitz - Editor's Guild Magazine

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. 

 

Manhattan Edit Workshop Goes Back to the Future - MovieMaker Magazine

In the Six-Week Intensive Course at Manhattan Edit Workshop (Mewshop), students learn how to use editing software like Final Cut Pro and Avid.

But the school also emphasizes the importance of editing history and theory, ensuring that students know how, when and why to use the tools they have been taught. After all, editors who achieve success in the industry must understand the art of editing as well as which keys to press on a computer. The school’s Artists in Residence program hammers home this point by bringing editors to screen and discuss their work, sharing with students the lessons they’ve learned throughout their own careers.

Inside the World of the Pixar Editor: Ken Schretzmann of Toy Story 3 Discusses the Craft - Moviemaker Magazine

The accomplishments of an editor can be both mysterious and underappreciated, and nowhere is this more evident than among the editors at Pixar Studios. I discovered their special role in the animation process when I visited Ken Schretzmann at Pixar shortly after he won an Eddie for Best Edited Feature Film in Animation for Toy Story 3. He then became the focus of my panel at EditFest NY; and after all our discussions I now realize how fully Pixar uses the editor’s talents, one of many brilliant strategies that has led to the studio’s extraordinary success.

EditFest With Alan Heim - A Star Editor and His Work on Star 80

I just moderated my third panel for EditFest, and although this had only one panelist, it was enough for a feast, because that panelist was the very gifted and gracious Alan Heim. Alan chose to discuss and show clips from Star 80,director Bob Fosse’s final film, which was an unconventional decision. The film was vilified by the critics and audiences found the disturbing and sexually violent subject matter to be difficult viewing. Alan said, “I believe had it not been so well made, maybe it would have been unwatchable.” Fosse had this to say about the film: “The passion I had when I made it is no longer there, but I know it’s technically the best movie I’ve done. I felt completely in control of this story.”
