Legends of Visual Storytelling Gather in Manhattan for the Post - Production Event of the Year: Sight, Sound & Story

Academy Award-winner William Goldenberg, ACE heads this year’s lineup of celebrated artists, editors and filmmakers 

New York, New York – April 7, 2015 – Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEWShop), the cutting-edge authorized digital training destination for post-production and content creators, today announced their all-star list of guest speakers and panelists for its special one-day event, Sight, Sound & Story, held on June 13, 2015 at the NYIT Auditorium on Broadway at Columbus Circle. “Sight, Sound & Story is one of the few events that brings together the community to celebrate the art of visual storytelling. We feel this year is our strongest, most diverse yet - we’ll explore the vital role of Visual Effects in cinema, the inner-workings of groundbreaking documentaries, compelling work from television’s golden age, and to close this year’s show, a look at William Goldenberg, ACE’s acclaimed career including The Imitation Game, Zero Dark Thirty, and the Oscar winning Argo,” says Josh Apter, owner of Manhattan Edit Workshop.  "Our mission each year is to entertain, educate and provide our audience with unprecedented access and insight from the best in the business."

"Sight, Sound & Story" Looks at the Editor's Process - postPerspective

As a young filmmaker and editor, I was very excited to be attending Manhattan Edit Workshop’s Sight, Sound & Story conference that took place right off of Madison Avenue in New York City recently. On my way to the event, I passed men in slick suits walking into shiny buildings, evoking thoughts of my favorite show, Mad Men.

Cutting Sports and Spielberg: The "Sight, Sound & Story" Editing Workshop - FIlmmaker

A not very wise man once reflected that the strongest examples of film editing are the sequences where you don’t notice it. Day-long seminars such as “Sight, Sound & Story,” which took place last Saturday at the Florence Gould Hall in Manhattan, seek to pull back the curtain on the constantly evolving digital tools and techniques in need of demystification. Structured around a series of topical, industry-specific interests, the panels I attended approached the craft (and the difficulties of perfecting it) from a myriad of vantage points, none the least being narrative structure, the identification of theme and post-production sound design. Speaking to a house compromised primarily of similarly minded film craftsman, the panelists dug out their own portfolios to provide concise case studies.
