Manhattan Edit Workshop launched its “Inside the Cutting Room” series last month with a sit down with editor Andrew Weisblum, ACE. Hosted by author/film historian Bobbie O’Steen, the two-hour event looked at Weisblum’s career as a film editor and his relationships with two very different directors: Wes Anderson (The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom) and Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler, Black Swan).
ON June 8 and 9, the American Cinema Editors and Manhattan Edit Workshop held the fourth annual EditFest NY at the Directors Guild Theatre in Manhattan. Well-known editors from the worlds of documentary, features, and television presented five Q & A panels and stayed for informal chats with the audiences. They also attended a cocktail party at Le Parker Meridian Hotel Friday night.
