From the importance of basic story telling to the new digital aspects of editing, this panel will answer your questions. The panel includes Jason Sedmak, senior video editor at Postmodern Company with 20 years of experience in Denver and New York; Herman Nieuwoudt, a freelance editor based in Denver, VFX Supervisor/Compositor and Colorist with 18 years of international experience; Charlie Brittz, a freelance editor, Flame artist, DIT and Resolve Colorist with 15 years of international experience; and Devon Avery, filmmaker, creator of short comedies "One Minute Time Machine" and "Practice Makes Perfect".

Last Minute Announcements

Program misprint:
Practice Makes Perfect: The Director of Practice Makes Perfect is labelled as David Spiegel in the program.  That is incorrect. The director's name is Devon Avery, and is attending our festival. Look for him in the crowd and at his film's showing: Friday, 6:00 p.m. at the Breckenridge Backstage Theatre.  Sorry about that Devon!
