Hear from Oscar nominated film editors as they share their thoughts and experiences in cutting the year’s best movies.
The Invisible Art Visible Artists annual seminar is a real treat for any editor or aspiring editor. It’s a rare chance to get all of the Academy Award nominated film editors in one room talking about their work.
In this year’s hour and a half discussion, available online thanks to Moviola.com, you can hear at length from the editors of: American Hustle (Alan Baumgarten A.C.E, Jay Cassidy A.C.E., Crispin Struthers), 12 Years A Slave (Joe Walker), Gravity (Mark Sanger, Alfonso Cuaron), Captain Philips (Christopher Rouse A.C.E) and Dallas Buyers Club (John Mac McMurphy, Martin Pensa). This year’s Oscar winner was Mark Sanger and Alfonso Curaon for Gravity.
