MPI’s Mindful Editor Workshop Now Accepting Applications
July 7, 2021
MPI is now accepting applications for our 2021 Mindful Editor Workshop. Held in partnership with Smock Media, this workshop offers a select group of filmmakers the opportunity to sharpen the vital skill of editing.
Workshop participants are taught by industry professionals to craft emotionally powerful stories while receiving hands-on experience with cutting-edge editing software. In addition, editors learn proven techniques to reduce the mental exhaustion that so often accompanies their demanding schedules.
“I entered the workshop feeling like I was on my way to burning out,” said Annie Wilkes, a 2020 Mindful Editor participant. “I was beginning to doubt my confidence as an editor and Mindful Editor reminded me of everything I love about the post process. It’s a program that stresses the creative as much as the technical but more importantly that mental health is artistic longevity.”
The virtual workshop is set to begin in July and will meet weekly for five weeks. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, each participant will receive a stipend for their participation.
Filmmakers seeking to learn more about the post-production process and eager to enhance their editing techniques are encouraged to apply here today! Applications are due Friday, July 16.
