The COVID-19 pandemic and the recent rise of streamer-oriented documentary films have both had significant influence on post-production processes. Remote editing, often with extensive input from different international funding partners and often with an editor from a different country, has become a standard feature of international documentary production. Featuring two filmmaker-editor teams from the films Transactions (Director, Rumbi Katedza / Editor, Ronet Van Der Walt) and Girl, Taken (Directors, Simon Wood, Francois Verster / Editor, Bob Caldwell) that worked in this manner, this panel explores the practical challenges involved, as well as the impact of international market demands on storytelling style and content.
PANELLISTS: Rumbi Katedza, Ronet Van Der Walt, Francois Verster, Simon Wood and Bob Caldwell.
MODERATOR: Sam Soko.
