Course program

“O'Steen uses her insider knowledge and sensitivity to the work of editors to expose the techniques, or rather the feelings, and the instincts behind "making movie magic." - Editor Carol Littleton, ACE (E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, The Big Chill)

The purpose of this evening course is to reveal the art and technique of master editors through the screening and discussion of their work. By doing a cut-by-cut analysis, Bobbie will explain the strategies and decisions behind the editing of many successful films - based on extensive interviews from her books, panels, and event series - which will ultimately empower you to become a better editor and storyteller yourself.
