After opening remarks by Randy Roberts, A.C.E., President of the American Cinema Editors, the DGA Theatre in New York took on a hushed tone as the second annual East Coast EditFest got underway June 11. The reason was that the organization remembered one of its own: Karen Schmeer, A.C.E. Lucia Small, both a close friend and a client of Schmeer's editing skills, stood up to talk about the young editor whose life ended earlier this year from a tragic hit-and-run accident near her home in...
