If you're in New York and involved in post, the daylong Sight, Sound & Story is a not-to-miss annual gathering that you don’t want to mix. Now in its fourth year, it is organized and run ably by Josh Apter and the Manhattan Editors Workshop staff.
One lovely Saturday this summer, over 300 editors, filmmakers, and post-production professionals opted to pack the NYIT Auditorium on Broadway for a full day of panels focused on the art of editing documentary films, episodic TV and visual effects.
To top things off, the afternoon ended with an in-depth discussion lead by Bobbie O’Steen with legendary Oscar-winning editor Anne V. Coates, ACE. The American Cinema Editors sponsored the end-of-day networking party, which stretched on for two hours and gave many attendees a chance to discuss the day’s panels and interview.
