In this edition of “Spotlight on an Editor,” we had the opportunity to sit with legendary editor of “Silence of the Lambs,” Craig McKay, ACE. For our April 2015 workshop, Mr. McKay visited and spoke with our Six Week Intensive students through our Artist in Residence program.
While the New York edition of EditFest - sponsored by American Cinema Editors-has whetted East Coaster's appetite for advanced training and talks with top edit talent, the fact that it unspools only once a year has left many wishing for more.
That wish can true on a cold evening in January with the launch of EditFest Shortcuts, a one-on-one screening and Q&A dedicated to explicating an experienced editor's career. Author Bobbie O'Steen, well known for her interviews at both EditFest LA and EditFest NY, was in her element as she kicked off this debut session with Craig McKay, ACE.
