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 to listen to 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, Mahana, What We Do In the Shadows) chaired by Andrew Hagen from the Screen Composers Guild.

There will be a question time included in this sure-to-be interesting evening, so come along and see how you can avoid falling onto the wrong side of the (musical) tracks.

WHERE:  Random Group – The Hub, 43 Hanson Street, Mt Cook, Wellington
