C3: Beyond the Cutting Room

Professionals from the Motion Picture Editors Guild share their insight, experience, and suggestions on how to best prepare with the finished film in mind, before even beginning to shoot a single frame. Editors are one of the last people to touch a film before it is seen by the world.
