Secrets From Successful Editors
Wednesday, September 12, 2018 | 6:30PM EST

How do you have something to show funders before having the funding to hire an editor? It's the catch-22 every filmmaker struggles with. This workshop presents 4 master editors -- 3 of whom have also sat in the director's seat -- for a process-oriented masterclass about how to find an editor, have a successful collaboration, and how to get to a rough cut while waiting for funding. WMM welcomes these extraordinary craftswomen in conversation: Hemal Trivedi ( Among the Believers, Saving Face), Ann Collins ( Swim Team, Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold), and Carla Gutierrez ( Las Marthas, RBG). Moderating the discussion will be editor Sabine Krayenühl ( Virgin Tales, Mad Hot Ballroom). This will be an illuminating conversation not to be missed! Stay after the workshop to mingle with fellow filmmakers and meet the editors!
