In this class, a veteran Hollywood film editor will share his insider knowledge from 45 years in the industry. Vickrey began as an assistant and went on to meet and work with Peter Bogdanovich and others of the biggest-name directors and actors in the business, winning an A.C.E. award for Ridley Scott’s The Company.  He will detail what it is like to navigate between the egos of producers and directors; how rewarding it is to end up with successful films or even a box office bomb; how editors take directors’ wishes and translate them into award-winning film experiences; his experience of working on the first season of SNL, and much more.
