Editing Studio

Expert mentors with backgrounds in both fiction and documentary filmmaking engage and inspire Talents to explore the ethics and politics of the editing room.

The studio is an editing room of sorts, where everyone gets to voice an opinion in search of the best solution. Discussions depart from samples of the Talents' own work and cover the many challenges and merits of working alongside directors, screenwriters and producers.

It was important for me to be able to share the sometimes challenging aspects of editing with fellow Talents, and the advice I received from mentors has allowed me to be more incisive and a better communicator when it comes to the projects I work on.
