Educational programs and events
A mentorship program allows full-time students the opportunity to observe editors for two weeks, ideally observing the cutting of dailies as well as a director or producer cut.
The CCE regularly holds panel discussions and screenings to educate regarding new Post Production issues, and to promote editing as a primary creative force in television and film. Panels have included discussion of the RED camera and how it affects Post Production, the role of Post Production Supervisor (panelists included Gregor Hutchison, Rachel Sutherland, Adam Roberts, Doug Wilkinson, Julie Lawrence and Gary Mueller), and sound editing. Screenings, followed by questions and answers time with the editor include "Dead Ringers" (editor Ron Sanders, C.C.E.), "Cairo Time" (editor Teresa Hannigan, C.C.E.) and "District 9" (editor Julian Clarke, C.C.E.).
