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.
