The South African Guild of Editors (SAGE) and In the Bag – a Wits Film and TV initiative – present a talk by Catherine Meyburgh and Susan Scott, celebrated South African editors and members of SAGE.

Documentary films are known for high shooting ratios. The editor may work through hundreds, even thousands of hours of raw material before arriving at the final film. How does one begin to think of a structure for a feature length documentary?

How do you keep it all organised? Is working on a wildlife documentary different to working on a documentary with human subjects? These are the questions Meyburgh and Scott will consider.
