"It was a real honor to be there, and I had a lot of fun with our discussion. I really hope everyone got something out of the panel, and hope to see their careers grow & flourish! I really admire what you all are doing, and think it serves a valuable purpose in the industry. As I mentioned, I wish I had attended one of your seminars when I was 25!"

“This was one of the best events I’ve ever covered.”


- Justin Morrow - Writer, No Film School

"The Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEW) continues to grow its reputation as the top spot on the East Coast to learn the editor's craft. So it’s perhaps not unusual that it offers a great service pulling together panels of top-notch working editors who provide insight into how they pull off the latest reality TV show, miniseries or feature." 


- Dan Ochiva, NYC Production & Post News 

“This is a wonderful way for people interested in cinematography to get access to the masters.  The DPs are happy to share lessons they learned on set, and insider information about how the industry works. I learned so much from these artists. Don’t miss the next one!”


- Snehal Patel, Sales Manager, ZEISS 

"I've been an editor for over 20 years and this was my first “Sight, Sound and Story” event. Great networking and excellent speakers that were informative, inspiring and entertaining."

- Kenyon King, Student, Harvard University

 "It was a worthwhile investment for us – we spoke to people non-stop during the reception." 


- Joe Smith, Sales Development Executive, Emerging Industries Media and Entertainment, Autodesk

"Sight, Sound & Story plays an important role in the post community. It brings together multiple post disciplines and champions new ideas all within an environment that is conducive to networking.  That's why I go every year and make sure to bring colleagues."

"More. More! MORE!"


- Francis Zuccarello, Freelance Editor

Long-form “Peak TV,” what I call episodic filmmaking, is widely celebrated for formal and narrative innovation, but the breakthroughs I’m fascinated by are the leaps in digital cinematography seen every week if you know where to look and what to watch for.  If I hadn’t been on stage moderating this year’s terrific “The New Age of TV" discussion with DP Rob McLachlan, I would have been in the audience, leaning forward in my seat!
