Doc U Point of View: Editors on the Art of Storytelling

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_calendar/item/doc_u_point_of_view_editors_on_the_art_of_storytelling

Great documentaries are made, not born, and the place where that happens is in the editing room. A good editor can save a documentary director’s neck; a great one can make a director look like a genius. So, who are these saviors and alchemists and what special storytelling skills do they have that filmmakers can benefit from?

Join this lively and illuminating discussion with high caliber editors moderated by Emmy-nominated editor Lillian Benson, A.C.E. (Eyes on the Prize II, Bridging the Divide – Tom Bradley and the Politics of Race.) Confirmed panelists: Johanna Demetrakas (Crazy Wisdom: The Life & Times of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Angels in the Dust), Maya Hawke (Plimpton! Starring George Plimpton as Himself, Cave of Forgotten Dreams), Yaffa Lerea (Project Runway, Ken Burns’ Baseball), and Kim Roberts, A.C.E. (Inequality for All, Last Call at the Oasis).
