July 08, 2014
Sarasota, FL - Adam Epstein, Emmy-nominee and editor for the Saturday Night Live Film Unit, kicks off his Cutting Edge Tour on July 20 in Fairfield, NJ. The nationwide tour will reach 32 cities in 9 weeks covering the multifaceted intricacies of post-production.
Cutting Edge Tour attendees have three sign-up options: Attend the entire day from 9am-8pm, actively participate in the Daytime Workshop from 9am-4pm or engage in the Evening Seminar from 5pm-8pm.
WEVA members receive discount registration, plus an exclusive Bonus Discount on instructional DVDs for filmmakers through MZed (see WEVA email Blasts for further discount details). Watch The Cutting Edge Tour Trailer.
For the SNL Film Unitís pieces, Epstein often finds himself with less than 24 hours to cut the hilarious and popular spots that are broadcasted to millions of viewers every Saturday night. Epstein believes it takes more than the technical aspects of post-production to create compelling work -- it involves rhythm, tone, and a sharp focus on storytelling. He will be illustrating all these points and more in his workshop and seminar.
Not only will he be examining and breaking down scenes from films, music videos, and other sources that have inspired him, but he will also demonstrate how to handle multiple cameras and their workflow, various codecs, sound design and music selection, while showing you how to get the most out of your footage.
Epstein will be unraveling the differences between promos, commercials, short films and how specific editing techniques fit and enhance character archetypes. Epstein will teach how to work faster and more efficiently while still achieving a high-quality end product.
Epsteinís editing has contributed to several instant classics, such as SNL skits The Beygency and Louie/Lincoln, for which he received an Emmy nomination. Epstein is currently editing the Paramount feature comedy Staten Island Summer for long-time SNL director Rhys Thomas.
In the past, Epstein has worked with a host of network and cable clients such as ABC, Bravo, Discovery, Comedy Central, Animal Planet and Sundance. Outside of the edit room, Epstein writes a column for Tribeca Film where he shares his insights on creativity with a focus on editing and post-production.
