New York — Red Car in New York has added editor Michael Sullivan to its team. Most recently at Gramercy Park, he brings a range of editorial experience to Red Car as well as a resume that includes audio mixing and recording and sound design.

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.

Manhattan Edit Workshop is proud to welcome film editor John Gilroy as Artist in Residence for our upcoming September Six Week Art of Editing Intensive.
As part of MEWShop’s signature Six Week Art of Editing course, award winning editors act as Artist in Residence – where they curate a selection of films to be viewed and analyzed throughout the workshop and offer insight and advice about the editing profession. Each six week program then closes with an invitation only discussion, about their craft and body of work. “This one night only event is the most popular events we do”, says Josh Apter, “The audience varies, from novices to seasoned post production veterans. And without fail, we end up turning people away at the door.”

The editor is one of the many heroes of moviemaking who are underappreciated by mass audiences. That means discriminating cinephiles who want the low down on their favorite choppers often find themselves with no way of getting the goods.
