Sight, Sound & Story: Live Goes “Inside the Cutting Room of Sam O’Steen” on November 19th

The Sight, Sound & Story: Live monthly event series continues in November with Author & Film Historian Bobbie O’Steen and a panel of seven editors

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Manhattan Edit Workshop’s “Sight, Sound & Story: Live” monthly online event series continues in November with an in-depth look at the work of legendary editor Sam O’Steen.

Inside Episode V: This panel will honor legendary editor Sam O’Steen. He first found acclaim for his work in the late 1960s, at a time when the studio system was crumbling, and independent filmmakers were captivating young audiences with personal, provocative narratives and experiments with sound, music, cinematography, and editing. These shifts all elevated the status of the editor. Bobbie O’Steen, who was Sam’s wife and collaborator, is a film historian whose book, "Cut to the Chase," is filled with Sam's behind-the-scenes stories on such landmark films as “The Graduate,” “Rosemary’s Baby,” and “Chinatown.” She will moderate the panel of seven editors, who will share and discuss specific scenes that show how Sam’s work inspired them.

Panelists for this event will include Michael R. Miller, ACE (“Miller's Crossing, Armageddon”), Darrin Navarro, ACE (“Ballers,” “Mozart in the Jungle”), Suzana Peric (“The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” “The Pianist”), Terilyn Shropshire, ACE (“The Old Guard,” “Eves Bayou”), Zach Staenberg, ACE (“The Matrix” Trilogy, “Pacific Rim: Uprising”) & more!*

All attendees who register for this event will receive a link and password to Vimeo Live an hour prior to the event. The event will be live at 5:00 PM EST/ 2:00 PM PST on November 19th. This will gain free access for all attendees who register.

This event wouldn’t be possible without our Master Storyteller Sponsors: OWC, ZEISS, American Cinema Editors, & EditFest Global; as well as our Technology Sponsor: Shutterstock. Following the panel there will be a chance to ask questions in a live Q&A networking event. To register, please go to https://bit.ly/2Jk36zi.

MALIBU, CA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — First Came the Zombies —Then Covid

As Covid19 dominated Hollywood and the news cycles of 2020, TV and movie production thankfully has now started picking back up. Despite the myth that the virus has destroyed Hollywood, 2020 has actually been one of Hollywood’s most successful years. With 2019’s top 10 box office hits at just under a half a billion dollars in revenue, 2020’s top 10 box office hits raked in nearly 1 billion dollars. Sony, Paramount, Warner Brothers, Universal, 20th Century Studios, Disney, and STX studios dominated box office production dollars, proving that entertainment is essential business indeed.

One leading independent directing duo powerhouse have remarkably—like the major studios–never slowed down, working safely and steadily throughout the year, resulting in a banner success. That incredible and talented pair, The Dream Team Directors are just coming off of a whirlwind eclipse with a stunning 15 Wins for “Best Drama,” “Best Message,” and “Best Inspirational Film” with their second to latest film "Tombstone Pillow."

Now the Dream Team, consisting of Bayou Bennett and Daniel Lir are premiering their latest new film, "Slashing Silverlake" at the prestigious Oscar® and BAFTA qualifying LA Shorts International Film Festival this month. The award-winning team are also raising funds to shoot the feature length version of the film.

The contending film was shot in March 2020, right during the main outbreak of the virus, which proved quite a challenge, yet one they found workable solutions to overcome, and that the cast and crew equally found well worth it; greatly rewarding even beyond the screen time.

A dark comedy with a strong social commentary about the gentrification of the once flourishing Latin neighborhoods of Silverlake and Echo Park, Los Angeles, the film reminds us of the importance of preserving culture. The official synopsis of “Slashing Silverlake further explains the films spooky extravaganza:

“Silverlake’s old Hispanic gangs come back as Zombies from the depths of Dodger Stadium during the full moon to take revenge, reclaim their neighborhood from gentrification, and slay the phony hipsters.”

Logline: To Save the World from Hipsters the Dead Will Rise.

“Slashing Silverlake” stars accomplished actor Jim Meskimen who has acted in five films by Academy Award® winner Ron Howard, and also stars world famous KROQ DJ Megan Holiday. Co-starring are Sandra Santiago, Kevin Nelson, Daniel O’Reilly, Justin Barco, Taylor Meskimen, Ramon Bautista Jr and Eugene Baiste.

The Dream Team Directors are also proud to announce that they “collaborated with rising star musicians on the film soundtrack including Alexis De La Rocha, Ask Carol, The Fleurs, Social Gravy, and R-Tronika.”

The Dream Team are excited to show the film this Halloween season, their favorite holiday, stating that the film follows in the tradition of their favorite films growing up including "The Lost Boys" and "Beetlejuice."

Dream Team Directors Bayou Bennett and Daniel Lir are 32 times Award Winning creators and directors who have done campaigns for some of the most famous companies and stars in the world including Adidas, Coldplay, Mark Ruffalo, Bella Hadid, and Lindsey Stirling, among more.
