Sight, Sound & Story: The 2014 Lineup of Panels and Speakers
Panels at this yearâ€™s event will include: â€œAnatomy of a Scene: Documentary Editors Deconstruct Their Work,â€ â€œTV is the New Black: Televisionâ€™s Cinematic Revolution,â€ â€œFast and Furious: Cutting Sports Television,â€ â€œâ€˜The Wolf of Wall Streetâ€™ Soundscape from Production Audio to Final Mixâ€ and â€œInside the Cutting Room with Bobbie Oâ€™Steen featuring Michael Kahn, A.C.E.â€ The summit will conclude with a gala reception and networking session for over 300 guests, panelists and vendors.
â€œThe MEWShop editing summit is amazing because it creates a space for professional editors to come together and talk shop â€“ something that we rarely get to do,â€ says Garret Savage, a 2014Sight, Sound & Story moderator. â€œI attended last year and found all the panels to be enlightening and inspiring. I loved the variety of topics and discussions. I knew that day that I wanted to get involved in the summit in some way, so Iâ€™m thrilled that this year we are presenting the documentary editing panel, and Iâ€™m honored to be moderating. Once a great film is done and ready for the public, it is often hard to see all the work that went into it. Our panel has a chance to go behind the final cut and get into the nuts and bolts of how the filmmakers got there.â€
This special symposium produced by Manhattan Edit Workshop features an extensive selection of OscarÂ® winners, innovators and industry thought leaders, who will lead panels outlining the art and processes of editing film and television, the unique and fast-paced world of editing sports docudramas, and the craft behind sound design. These honored panelists include:
