Creative Editing: The Language of the Moving Image

Beneath the layers of hardware and software applications, the visual vocabulary of editing remains the essential contemporary language from which film creation and comprehension is derived. Like linguistic masters, today’s most accomplished editors take seemingly random images and spin complex webs of coherent story, rhythm, and style. This discussion gathers leading practitioners of this amazing art-form to discuss editing’s essential grammar, the role of non-linear editing, and the best strategies for keeping up with the ever-changing technological tools of the trade. Moderated by Jennifer Hilner, entertainment editor at Wired Magazine.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
