on Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Thursday night EditShare sponsored a seminar with Oscar-nominated film editor Tariq Anwar at the Florence Gould Hall on East 59th Street in Manhattan. Despite rain the evening was well attended by writers, directors, and especially editors, and Anwar’s presentation — basically a low-key Q&A session moderated by Manhattan Edit Workshop’s Josh Apter — was fun and informative. Here are a few thoughts he shared.


We have footage of this event that we intend to put online, possibly this week. In the meantime, reviews like this are trickling in. We were very excited to host this, and are glad that people found it interesting.

Trivia: While Thelma Schoonmaker edits films with her Console, Martin Scorsese connects a Contour Shuttle Pro to check her work.

That is, Scorsese & Schoonmaker keep both controllers plugged in to the same edit suite simultaneously, each taking turns.

More to the point though, this means that anyone considering using a controller they already own with Lightworks should be able to rest assured that it’s going to work just fine.
