Today’s announcement was made by Josh Apter, owner of Manhattan Edit Workshop.
“This program gives our students a unique opportunity with an amazing company, just as they are graduating from our Six Week Course,” said Apter. “Not only will students get a first-hand look at a working production facility, they also will have the chance to apply for a real-world, paid position. Helping ‘six-week’ students prepare for a career in editing has always been vital to us; now, Leftfield’s partnership propels this even further to help students with that critical transition.”
Added Danielle DiStefano, vice president, post production, at Leftfield Entertainment, “We realize how important it is to gain both the required skills needed for a post career, and access to jobs in the real world. All of us at Leftfield are delighted to be part of an innovative program designed to bridge the gap between training and professional status. This partnership not only helps the MEWShop students, it’s also geared towards helping our current junior editorial staff move up by providing a steady pipeline of incoming talent to replace them as they promote out of their current positions.”
