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.
