Cutting Natural History

Cutting Natural History, as defined by the Editors of the ROSCAR Finalists.
Presented by the South African Guild of Editors (SAGE)

In this Q&A session, Editors will reveal the creative filmmaking and post-techniques used to help cement their projects as ROSCAR Finalists. They will divulge the latest information about post-production workflows as well as the changing deliverables requirements for natural history and animal programming. Plus they will give an insight into the endless ways of telling stories as well as their relationships with Producers and Writers in the cutting room. They may also let slip a few tricks of the trade along the way! (clips from these films will be shown and discussed by the Editor)
