    EditFest Shortcuts

    January 10, 2011, 12:15 pm
    Get that "EditFest" feeling all year long!
    In 2008, American Cinema Editors (ACE) launched EditFest LA - a unique event, dedicated to the art of film editing . This weekend series of screenings, talks, Q&A sessions and parties proved an entertaining way to shine a spotlight on an amazing and often misunderstood art. A year later, Manhattan Edit Workshop offered to co-produce EditFest NY, the east coast extension of EditFest and the blockbuster editing event of the Summer! Both shows have become wildly popular weekends for both fledgeling and veteran editors as well as film-lovers and enthusiasts. Now in it's third year, EditFest is growing again - with EditFest Short Cuts! These "mini EditFests" are in-depth talks with a single editor, aimed at taking a deeper look into one artist's body of work.

    For our first EditFest Short Cuts we decided to reach for the stars. We got two of them! On January 20th, 2011 at 7PM, at New York's Helen Mills Theater, please join us for an intimate discussion of the editing process through the work of film editor Craig McKay, moderated by distinguished author/editor Bobbie O'Steen. EditFest Short Cuts is produced by ACE and Manhattan Edit Workshop and presented by The Moving Pictures Collective NYC.

      We've been told that you can't have it all. Today's digital storytellers are faced with the harsh realities of shrinking resources and growing expectations. Editors are facing pressures to work faster, producers have tighter budget constraints and cinematographers are expected to deliver beautiful images with less at their disposal. Fortunately, technology has helped bridge the gap and provides the ability to complete things quickly and at scale, without sacrificing quality. In this works...
