As a young filmmaker and editor, I was very excited to be attending Manhattan Edit Workshop’s Sight, Sound & Story conference that took place right off of Madison Avenue in New York City recently. On my way to the event, I passed men in slick suits walking into shiny buildings, evoking thoughts of my favorite show, Mad Men.
Once inside the venue, my thoughts remained on Mad Men — I saw that one of its editors, Cindy Mollo, ACE, was scheduled to speak about her process during the upcoming TV panel. All of the editors lined up for the day had equally impressive credentials working on a diverse group of projects, which ranged from the documentary Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work to the classic film Jurassic Park, and everything in between.
