projector is one of the central themes of this two day workshop, where

film-based editing by cutting an actual unused scene from a feature
film. We will begin with raw workprint and sound, and go through the
edit process step-by-step, including marking, synching, coding, logging,
pulling, editing, and final writeup. In the process, we will learn the
use of the tools of the editing-room: sync-blocks, splicers, trim-bins,
split reels, rewinds, etc. This class will enable you to edit a
sync-sound, feature-length film, from beginning to end, without losing a
