FILM EDITING, THE INVISIBLE ART: AN EVENING WITH RICHARD CHEW
Thursday, January 27, 2011
Perhaps best known as a co-editor of the original Star Wars, Richard Chew’s extraordinary body of work includes One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Conversation, Risky Business, Clean and Sober, My Favorite Year, Goin’ South, Shanghai Noon, Waiting to Exhale, I Am Sam, That Thing You Do! And many, many others. Mr. Chew will present a selection of clips of his work, followed by an onstage discussion of his career, his cinematic influences, and the uniquely important art of film editing in storytelling. The evening will conclude with a screening of one of the films most influential to Mr. Chew, Michael Roemer’s 1964 Nothing But a Man. The evening is made possible thanks to the cooperation of the Department of Communication, Wayne State University. Tickets for this very special event are $12, $10 for students and DIA members.
