The Signal in the Noise: Finding (and Cutting) A Great Short Film with Misha Tenenbaum

January 24 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM PST

As CEO of Editstock — an online service that provides uncut footage for people to practice editing with — Misha Tenenbaum spends most of his time doing two things:  Finding new films for EditStock’s library and giving users feedback on their cuts.  In this presentation, Misha shares what he’s learned through these two vital processes — including how bad films may have more to teach us than good ones do.

  • What makes a great short film?
  • Is there a “right” cutting pattern?
  • How big a difference a good edit can make.
  • How to tell the difference between a good and a great short film.
  • The common mistakes that short filmmakers make.
