In late February of this year, VII’s Sara Terry had just fin­ished prin­ci­pal pho­tog­ra­phy on her third feature-length doc­u­men­tary, That’s How We Roll. She and her award-winning edi­tor, Victoria Chalk, had just entered the first stages of editing–viewing footage togeth­er and plan­ning the film’s nar­ra­tive struc­ture. Then the pan­dem­ic hit and changed every­thing. Join a con­ver­sa­tion with Victoria and Sara to learn how they made a quick switch to edit­ing via Zoom and how they dealt with the chal­lenges of the pan­dem­ic dur­ing one of the most crit­i­cal stages of mak­ing a film.

This lec­ture was orig­i­nal­ly host­ed at VII Interactive, a new resource for shar­ing insights and infor­ma­tion on the craft of visu­al sto­ry­telling. We are build­ing dif­fer­ent plat­forms with­in the VII ecosys­tem, where the pub­lic can engage direct­ly, online with a live instruc­tor. VII Interactive offers pro­gram­ming that is free and avail­able to every­one, in addi­tion to paid class­es and indi­vid­ual men­tor­ing that can be fash­ioned to your needs.
