Less starving. More artist.


"Manhattan Edit Workshop continues to grow its reputation as the top spot on the East Coast to learn the editor's craft.” - Dan Ochiva, NYC Production & Post News NYC Production & Post News



Manhattan Edit Workshop's Six Week Intensive Course in the art and technique of editing is a comprehensive jump-start for anyone serious about a career in post-production.  Whether just starting out in a new career, switching gears from an old one, or pursuing your own creative goals, the Six Week Intensive helps you develop the practical tools you need every day, and the foundation of your voice as a visual artist.

Artist in Residence and Oscar nominated editor Craig McKay, ACE (Silence of the Lambs, Reds, Philadelphia), speaks with Six Week Intensive students.


"I'm continually impressed by the seriousness of purpose of the students passing through the MEW workshops, to the point where I've hired a number of graduates on projects of mine.  My only regret is that a place like MEW didn't exist when I was first trying to break into the film industry. I had to learn everything the hard way." - Doug Block, Director (112 Weddings, The Kids Grow Up, 51 Birch Street) & Founder and Co-host of The D-Word
