Program Design

The Editors’ Lab is an immersive conservatory-like forum focused on the creative, collaborative, practical and business aspects of editing. It offers each editor multiple opportunities to work on different types of material, with different creators. The Lab focuses on helping each editor realize their individual potential by taking a customized approach that delivers on each editor’s needs.

Throughout the Editors’ Lab, editors exercise their technical and storytelling skills, as well as their ability to manage the collaborative process. Editors hone their creative process and develop their unique creative contributions through the following:

CREATIVE, TECHNICAL & COLLABORATIVE SKILLS DEVELOPMENT

A series of workshops, case studies, editing exercises and production exercises that expose editors to a variety of perspectives and approaches to the narrative script-to-screen process. Editors are constantly cutting, putting into practice their creative instincts while elevating their story and technical skills and strengthening their ability to communicate effectively with other artists.

BUSINESS OF EDITING & THE MARKETPLACE

Editors meet with directors, producers, other editors, post professionals and other industry professionals to gain a better understanding of the wider screen-based industry. Experts and mentors share knowledge, coaching and feedback on each editor’s work, share best practices and insights into how to navigate their larger career strategy.

CUTTING A FEATURE & PRODUCTION EXERCISES

Through the Lab, editors undertake a high volume of short form work across a variety of genres as well as the editing of a dramatic feature with ongoing support, feedback and mentorship. Editors leave with a more robust portfolio of produced work which speaks to their creative and technical abilities, as well as the tools and confidence to secure and deliver on a professional job.
