The Sundance Institute presented its first LA “Art of the Edit” event on Saturday at the Downtown Independent.
Contemplating the Cut was a two-part discussion and Q&A on editing with some of the top documentary editors working today. The first half discussed the challenges of film openings; the second half focused on creative approaches to editing.
I found the event to be exceptionally informative. It was also quite motivating to hear these editors explain their approaches to various editing challenges.
