In The Cut: Editing a Moving Sample

Saturday, March 12
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Stephen F Austin
Capital Ballroom B
701 Congress Ave


Editing is the final stage of a film's writing. How can editing be used to reevaluate/reshape what you’ve generated during production? Learn tips and strategies from editors who work across all forms and genres to tell engaging and emotionally moving stories. Featuring Emmy and Academy Award nominated editors of films that have screened at major festivals like Sundance, SXSW, Toronto, Berlin and Cannes. We will review samples from up to three works-in-progress (5 mins max length). Participants, please post samples to Vimeo and send links to moderator Kyle Henry at least 12 hrs before panel begins for selection via SXSocial.
