Assistant Editing Workshop with Paul Whitehead

Two-day course covering Assistant Editing and the politics and psychology of the editorial process in the cutting room


Canadian Cinema Editors

This workshop will take place online from 9-5pm EDT on March 25 & 26, 2023.

This two-day course will cover not only the procedural and logistical aspects of Assistant Editing, but will also include a holistic overview of the politics and psychology of the editorial process and how it affects everyone in the cutting room. Insights gleaned from over 20 years of Assistant Editing experience will be shared liberally accompanied by many war stories to illustrate lessons learned the hard way. Newcomers and those with experience will both benefit from this course. Please note: this is not a course that teaches Avid, Premiere or any other NLE.

The CCE does not wish for the cost to be a barrier to attending. For a reduced price ticket please contact
