Manhattan Edit Workshop‘s next Sight, Sound & Story: Live free online event series will take place on November 19 and take a deep dive look at legendary editor Sam O’Steen. It will be hosted by author and film historian Bobbie O’Steen along with a panel of seven editors.
As per the description:
Inside Episode V: This panel will honor legendary editor Sam O’Steen. He first found acclaim for his work in the late 1960s, at a time when the studio system was crumbling, and independent filmmakers were captivating young audiences with personal, provocative narratives and experiments with sound, music, cinematography, and editing. These shifts all elevated the status of the editor. Bobbie O’Steen, who was Sam’s wife and collaborator, is a film historian whose book, “Cut to the Chase,” is filled with Sam’s behind-the-scenes stories on such landmark films as “The Graduate,” “Rosemary’s Baby,” and “Chinatown.” She will moderate the panel of seven editors, who will share and discuss specific scenes that show how Sam’s work inspired them.
The panelists on the event will include Michael R. Miller, ACE (Miller’s Crossing, Armageddon), Darrin Navarro, ACE (Ballers, Mozart in the Jungle), Suzana Peric (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,The Pianist), Terilyn Shropshire, ACE (The Old Guard, Eves Bayou), Zach Staenberg, ACE (The Matrix Trilogy, Pacific Rim: Uprising) and more pending availability.
The free event will take place at 5pm EST (2pm PST) on November 19, and all attendees should register in advance here. Once registered, attendees will receive a link and password to the Vimeo Live an hour before the event. Following the panel there will be a chance to ask questions in a live Q&A networking event.
