FLEFF: A Different Environment


I'm extremely excited for this event and would not miss it for anything! I think it's such an honor for a Hollywood film editor to come to FLEFF and provide an editing workshop. As a film student interested in editing, I couldn't imagine not taking advantage of this opportunity! What's better than a professional editor giving students tips?

This is so exciting! I can't wait to go to this event. Editing is an amazing art that is so often overlooked--it is often said that the better you edit, the less you notice it. Of course, there are exceptions when talking about avant garde styles of cinema that utilize jump cuts and things like that, but most editing for feature length narratives is in the invisible style. It will be great to hear from a real professional how it is all done. Looking forward to this!
