Time to get back to learning. Join us Wednesday, September 27 for Back to School Night.

We welcome back USC Professor and editor Norman Hollyn who will take us on a tour of the soon to be released movie, SHOT from Director/Profesor Jeremy Kagan. Norman was editor and worked with Kagan on a story and style choice. The script called for most of the movie to be done with split screen.

Also we welcome for the first time editor/teacher Sven Pape, AKA "This Guy Edits." Sven has close to 81,000 subscribers to his wildly popular YouTube channel. Sven will talk on the creative and business side of editing.

Also, filmmaker Michael Wohl returns for a discussion of the process for creating 360° video, from prep, to shooting, to post, with an emphasis on the common traps and mistakes that people familiar with traditional production often stumble on.

Agenda (subject to change and availability)

6:45- 7:15PM - Stump the Gurus
Join Gurus Patrick Southern, Michael Kammes, Adam Bedford and Jason Bowdach as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning FCS and FCPX, Avid, Premiere Pro and anything else you can think of. If they can't solve your problem or answer your question, then you go home with a problem, but you still got out of the house, so that's not a bad thing.

7:20PM - 7:25PM - Announcements
This is your time, assuming we have time. New to LA? Say Hello. Got a movie you want people to see? Tell us about it. Looking for a job? Tell us. Offering a job? Tell us.

7:25PM - 7:50PM - 360° Video Workflow Overview - Michael Wohl.
A discussion of the process for creating 360° video, from prep, to shooting, to post, with an emphasis on the common traps and mistakes that people familiar with traditional production often stumble on.








About Michael Wohl
Michael is the author of The 360 Video Handbook; a step-by-step guidebook for creating video for VR, as well as 13 other books on various post production techniques. He is an award-winning filmmaker, has published over 100 hours of online training for AskVideo.com, and was a professor for 7 years at UCLA’s graduate school of film and TV. He is most well known for being on the original design team of Final Cut Pro.










7:55PM - 8:30PM - The Creative and Business side of Editing - Sven Pape AKA This Guy Edits
Sven will talk about the importance of editing as part of effective storytelling and career building. Film editing is a marketable trade that anyone can use to make a living and become a better filmmaker. This talk is not just geared towards editors, but anyone interested in becoming more hands-on with their storytelling.

About This Guy Edits
THIS GUY EDITS is a YouTube channel (80K+ subscribers) by film editor Sven Pape, an A.C.E. award nominee, whose credits include work for directors James Cameron, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and James Franco.

The channel started during the editing of Sven’s latest film for Sundance alumnus Mark Webber: Flesh & Blood (SxSW premiere and theatrical release in November). Viewers could watch Sven cut scenes as he shows the editing timeline and records a play-by-play-commentary of the editing process.
Since then the channel also features video essays on all things related to creative storytelling, character development and emotional audience engagement.

8:30- 8:55PM - Break
This is the most important part of the show. It's networking time. This is a great opportunity to not only ask questions and get problems solved, but to meet people that just migh
t change your life. Edit5 Consoles will be in lobby showing off Editing tables and chairs. Get to the Gallery early for this one. Snack bar wil be open for sodas, water, wine, chips and beer. I hope.

8:55PM - 9:40PM - Editing "SHOT" - Norman Hollyn
For his latest film project – SHOT, in which Mark (Noah Wyle) is accidentally shot by Miguel (Jorge Lendeborg, Jr.) – Norman worked with director Jeremy Kagan on a story and style choice. The script called for most of the movie to be done with split screen, following each of the characters in real time as they go through their own suffering. As they explored the split screen idea during the editing process they learned a lot about how split screen affects storytelling, budget and editing time.

The best route for people who use mobility devices is the sidewalk along the Barnsdall Park road access. More info on the Red Line can be found here.
