New York, New York – Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEWShop), the east coast's top school in the post-production industry, for cutting edge certified training and for filmmakers learning the art and craft of editing, has just announced weekend dates for the ‘Making the Cut with Bobbie O’Steen’ class series this January 2017.  The purpose of this course is to understand the art and technique of master editors through screening and discussion of their work.  How do they decide what shot to use and when exactly to cut in and out of that shot? How do they shape actors’ performances and fit the puzzle pieces together to make a story work? O’Steen will reveal the wisdom and strategies of master editors by taking you through a cut-by-cut analysis of many classic movie scenes, based on interviews from her popular books, panels, and event series. Ultimately, you’ll develop a deeper knowledge of the thinking behind the editing process, empowering you to become a better editor and storyteller yourself.

I recently caught up with editor Joseph Krings to talk about his career and the process of cutting the film.
