Screenlink: The Editor, a Composer's Friend or Foe?

Last Updated on

SCGNZ and DEGNZ present “The Editor, a Composer’s Friend or Foe?”

A special event that looks at the importance of communication and teamwork between an Editor and a Film Composer… Will they be friends or foes by the end of the mix?

Join us for a discussion between acclaimed New Zealand editors Annie Collins (One Thousand Ropes, The Great Maiden’s Blush, Consent: The Louise Nicholas Story) and Jonno Woodford-Robinson (Mortal Engines, Pork Pie, What We Do In the Shadows), chaired by Andrew Hagen from the Screen Composers Guild. There will be time for audience questions from Facebook in this sure-to-be interesting evening, so come join us live and see how you can avoid falling onto the wrong side of the (musical) tracks.

As part of the Q&A, they’ll be discussing some film clips, provided by the editors. These won’t be played during the session. We suggest watching the clips at 5pm, before the beginning of the live event at 5:30pm. Links to these clips will be made available on this post, the day before the event.

WHEN:  Thu 14 May, 5:30pm
WHERE: Directors and Editors Guild of New Zealand Facebook page. If you don’t have a Facebook account, please refer to the information further down on how to watch the live-stream.

This event is presented by the Directors & Editors Guild of NZ and the Screen Composers Guild of NZ as part of the Screenlink series.
