Author and teacher Bobbie O’Steen shares her insight into smart editing at Manhattan Edit Workshop’s new class starting January 7th.
Bobbie O’Steen has authored a couple of acclaimed books on editing – Cut to the Chase and The Invisible Cut. That’s nice. But what’s better is to step up your editing game by attending at her very first class on advanced editing techniques, in this case analyzing The Graduate. The first session comes his coming January 7th at Manhattan Edit Workshop’s slick new Chelsea headquarters on 23rd Street.
O’Steen offers up a unique touch you won’t find in many other such gatherings. How’s that? She has the original, marked up shooting scripts used by Mike Nichols’ editor on the film by its editor, Sam O’Steen, her late husband. Anyone who looks into more intelligent approaches to editing knows that looking in to the info that passes between director and editor as a film is pulled together will offer up a much better learning experience.
