"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.

New York, New York – April 16, 2014 – Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEWShop), the cutting-edge authorized digital training destination for post-production and content creators, today announced the all-star list of guest speakers and panelists for its special one-day event, Sight, Sound & Story, held on June 14, 2014 at the French Institute in mid-town Manhattan. “Sight, Sound & Story is one of the few events that brings together the community to celebrate the art of post-production. This year, we're pulling out all the stops. We'll see film scenes evolve and discuss that process live with the editors who shaped them, screen scenes from The Wolf of Wall Street from simple production sound to the final surround mix with the team who created it, and to close this year’s show, Michael Kahn, A.C.E. will look at iconic scenes from his more than 30-year collaboration with Steven Spielberg,” says Josh Apter, founder and president of Manhattan Edit Workshop. “With focus on features, television's golden age, sports docudrama and more, Sight Sound & Story appeals to movie lovers, seasoned pros, directors and producers. Culminating in a huge networking party - there's something here for everyone!”
