The Signal in the Noise

As CEO of Editstock — an online service that provides uncut footage for people to practice editing with — Misha Tenenbaum spends most of his time doing two things: Finding new films for EditStock’s library and giving users feedback on their cuts. In this presentation, Misha shares what he’s learned through these two vital processes — including how bad films may have more to teach us than good ones do.

  • What makes a great short film?
  • Is there a "right" cutting pattern?
  • How big a difference a good edit can make.
  • How to tell the difference between a good and a great short film.
  • The common mistakes that short filmmakers make.
Misha is a film and television editor, a certified Advanced Final Cut Pro Instructor, and an Avid Certified User (ACU).
