Bobbie O’Steen is a New York-based writer and film historian, dedicated to sharing the editor’s invisible art with students, professionals, and the movie-going public. She is an Emmy®-nominated editor and author of two acclaimed books about editing: “Cut to the Chase,” based on interviews with her late husband and colleague, legendary editor Sam O’Steen; and “The Invisible Cut,” which deconstructs classic movie scenes through a cut-by-cut analysis. Her latest book is an authoritative, media-rich eBook called “Making the Cut at Pixar” about the editor’s pioneering role in computer animation.
Bobbie moderates one-on-one panels with master editors at EditFest for American Cinema Editors, and has partnered with Manhattan Edit Workshop to host her continuing event series, ”Inside the Cutting Room,” honoring editors through screening and discussion. She has lectured at the American Film Institute, John Hopkins University, Emerson College, UCLA, and taught graduate school workshops at NYU’S Tisch School of the Arts. She has also created an ongoing class series, “Making the Cut,” where she explores the art and techniques of the editing process, based on her interviews with more than sixty editors. She also contributes commentary and interviews that focus on editing for The Criterion Collection DVD/Blu-Ray releases. O’Steen has written articles for such publications as CinemaEditor Magazine, which named her “Film Editing’s Greatest Champion.”
