The Signal in the Noise: Finding (and Cutting) A Great Short Film with Misha Tenenbaum
January 24, 2017 @ 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.
Misha Tenenbaum is the CEO and Founder of EditStock.com, a site that provides unedited films for editors to practice their craft with.
