In this episode of the "Sight, Sound & Story" Podcast we will go Inside the Cutting Room with author and film historian Bobbie Osteen for a panel highlighting the career of Oscar-winning feature film editor William Goldenberg, ACE. William has edited dramas like Seabiscuit," "The Imitation Game" and "The Insider," along with thrillers like "Argo" and "Zero Dark Thirty." And since those last two movies were released in the same year, that makes him one of the only editors to ever compete against himself for an Oscar! He started cutting on film and even though he cuts on digital now, that old school experience makes him a really thoughtful editor who doesn't make a cut without thinking about it first.
This is from our Post Production Summit on June 13th, 2015 in New York City.
