[prMac.com] New York, New York - Manhattan Edit Workshop (Mewshop), the cutting-edge authorized digital-training destination for postproduction and content creators, recently hosted Keith Reamer as this month's Mewshop Artist in Residence. Reamer's editorial resume includes, Cherien Dabis's Cannes prizewinner, Amreeka; Mary Harron's award-winning indie breakthrough, I Shot Andy Warhol; the Jim Kohlberg drama, The Music Never Stopped; and Maggie Greenwald's upcoming magical fantasy, The Art of Love. The Artist in Residence (AiR) Program invites award-winning, distinguished editors and filmmakers into the classroom to share behind-the-scenes filmmaking tips, techniques, and advice with the industry's aspiring talent. Keith screened his latest project, The Music Never Stopped, with Mewshop students - taking them behind the scenes to the cutting room floor, where the magic really happens.
"What I really love about coming down to Mewshop as their Artist in Residence is the blast of unbridled enthusiasm and vitality of my dialogues with the students," comments Keith Reamer. "It's so unfettered. It's all about the doing, the exploration of the great 'what if's' in editing, the celebration of achievement and creative growth. I am sure I get just as much out of this experience as do the students!"
