Women in Film hosts Filmmaker Forum 

The Editor's Toolkit
During Seattle International Film Festival
SIFF Film Center
Stewart Stern Theater
11:00 am-1:00 pm

The Editor's Toolkit. Post-production magic and generated imagery are more than just eye candy; both can be integral to a film's success. SIFF and Women in Film Seattle invite you to explore the post-production side of filmmaking: editorial technique and decision, color grading, visual effects, including animation, compositing, keying, mattes and green screen. We will discuss planning for this "slight of the eye" so that when you get into post, what you intended ends up on the screen. Panelists will screen clips to illustrate.

Moderated by Virginia Bogert, President Women in Film Seattle
