The first ACE EditFest New York kicked off tonight at the Directors Guild Theater in New York City with a panel discussion featuring six editors sharing their best advice for getting that first gig as a film editor. The five panelists, along with moderator (and ACE President) Randy Roberts (One From the Heart), swapped stories about breaking into the business that occasionally dated back to those bygone days of linear film editing.

Convergence, a slogan used for a previous NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) show, might have been more appropriate for this year’s event, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in late April, which was replete with examples of technology designed to merge production with post.

Working remotely has become commonplace in big, visual effects-laden feature films, with post-production work being done at effects and sound houses spread all over the world. But with the economy in its current state, not to mention the time and money consumed in traveling to and from a workplace on a daily basis, telecommuting on smaller projects, like television, is looking more and more attractive to post-production professionals.
