Cultivating Mindful Editors

Read what our editing workshop attendees are saying!

Last month, several young creatives joined the Moving Picture Institute and Smock Media in Los Angeles for our second annual editing workshop, the Mindful Editor. This five-day workshop offers aspiring filmmakers an opportunity to hone their skills through hands-on editing assignments in state-of-the-art editing bays.

Learning directly from award-winning film editors—including Mad Men’s Emmy-nominated editor Tom Wilson—attendees explored how to reach wide audiences by appealing to empathy in narratives and documentaries, while reducing the creative burnout that comes with editors’ demanding schedules.
