Maya Mumma has worked on numerous documentary projects including as an associate editor on Restrepo, and as an editor on Which Way Is the Front Line from Here?, The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington, Moms Mabley: I Got Somethin’ to Tell You, Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown, A Journey of a Thousand Miles: Peacekeepers, and ESPN Film’s Oscar-winning: O.J.: Made in America. Mumma will be speaking at Manhattan Edit Workshop’s Sight, Sound and Story event June 10th at the NYIT Auditorium.
Away from the major tradeshow cycle, there are any number of smaller events that have grabbed themselves deserved places on the calendar and offer something a bit more niche and perhaps a bit more special too. New York's Sight, Sound & Story this weekend is one of them.
Earlier this month, Manhattan Edit Workshop held its yearly Sight, Sound & Story conference in New York City. It was a full day of panel discussions featuring editors and visual effects pros at the top of their game. The conversations were refreshing and helpful — the panelists focused on their individual journey to where they are now, as well as the craft of filmmaking rather than tools and techniques.

A bit late getting my notes up, but Manhattan Edit Workshop held its yearly EditFest NY this past weekend, hosting a number of discussions with feature film, documentary, and commercial editors.

Thursday night EditShare sponsored a seminar with Oscar-nominated film editor Tariq Anwar at the Florence Gould Hall on East 59th Street in Manhattan.

Here are a few thoughts he shared.
