Editors' Lounge

Moderator Debra Kaufman bypassed all the usual technical talk about systems and platforms and technologies in favor of a wide-ranging and personal discussion about creativity: how do editors foster and nurture it, how do they deal with creative blocks, and more.

The panel was composed of a fantastic lineup of truly talented editors across the film and television disciplines, including Zack Arnold - imdb.com/name/nm2094093 (Burn Notice, Glee, and writer/director of Go Far: The Christopher Rush Story), Ryan Case - imdb.com/name/nm1884278 (Modern Family, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Jay Cassidy - imdb.com/name/nm0144203 (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook, Into the Wild, An Inconvenient Truth), and Dan Lebental - imdb.com/name/nm0495603 (Thor: The Dark World, Cowboys & Aliens, Iron Man 2, and creator of TouchEdit for iPad - toucheditapp.com).

It was a wildly successful evening with a packed house. Many thanks to the panelists for sharing their thought processes with everyone, and to AlphaDogs.tv & keycodemedia.com for graciously hosting the event!

    I suggest this video that I found in Vimeo.
    it is a 21 meters installation, a timeline, a walk through the history of Cinema.

    i found it incredible!
