June 13 // Eficiency in Editing

18 05 2012

Twenty Four Frames // Eficiency in Editing is a new workshop presented by members of the HPVA.

It is a great event for networking and refining your craft.

This is our second installation of the Twenty Four Frames event. The first one in March, was a hit! Nearly 100 filmmakers and photographers attended! People learned and friendships were sparked.

In this all new workshop, we will be exploring ways to increase editing productivity. Taking the fresh approach from leaders in the industry, we will be using a proven process to backup, convert, sort and edit a project. We will also learn ways to find a story and meaning in every edit, taking even the smallest job to a whole new level.
No matter what system you currently use, or what your skill level is, everyone should walk away from this event as a more productive editor, and with new friends.
