Are you an aspiring documentary filmmaker who wants to further develop your storytelling skills? Working with Withers, this one-day workshop explores the best practices during the creative process of editing documentary films. It’s designed for filmmakers/editors to improve their workflow and storytelling skills.

There are different approaches that an editor can take when editing a documentary film. How do these approaches impact how to organize and prepare for the edit in Adobe Premier? How do you balance factual and emotional journey in a feature documentary? What are the best practices when assembling sequences in the timeline?

YFS is able to help 2 people from outside Whitehorse to participate in this workshop with travel subsidy. Please let us know!

Graham Withers has been the editor of numerous documentary TV series including a just released 19 part NFB series True North, about young basketball players in the GTA. Recently he was the editor of Transformer, a documentary about a world record winning body builder, football player and marine who became a woman.

*Transformer is showing at Available Light Cinema on November 12.
