Editor Tony Kearns presented a fascinating workshop about his contribution to the Emmy winning Black Mirror interactive film Bandersnatch on Saturday 25th January at The Element. He took us through the challenges involved in a complex interactive narrative and the resulting workflow during this hands on workshop.

We are delighted that our own Tony Kearns has been included in 2109's Variety Magazine's Artisans Elite list of cinematographers, costume designers and editors. This is a great recognition of his work. See the full list here.


We had a great workshop with documentary editor Mick Mahon on Saturday 27th July at Piranha Bar. Mick

discussed his workflow and process in this hands-on workshop, with particular emphasis on his recent project Gaza, describing the evolution of this project from inception to completion.

We had a great response to our launch event on Wednesday night, 13th March, with an estimated sixty to seventy editors and assistant editors making the trip to Foley’s on Merrion Row. It was an eye-opening experience to see so many attend, and it make it clear that we are moving in the right direction. As we said on the night we are in the early stages of planning some training and mentoring initiatives, and we’d also like to hear from you, the members, about what you’d like to see us doing going forward. We also hope to build on the success of Wednesday night by having more social events over the course of the year, so watch this space.

Thanks to everyone that made our launch such a success; hopefully this is the first step on the road towards a thriving community.
