Nominations for the 68th annual Emmy Awards were announced on July 14. The Motion Picture Editors Guild congratulates all of the nominees in the post-production categories. The awards for those categories will be announced at the Creative Arts Awards and Ball, which takes place on two consecutive nights — September 10 and 11 — at the Microsoft Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles, and will air on ABC-TV on Saturday, September 17 — the night before the Primetime Emmy Awards. Leslie Bloome (pictured) earned two nominations in the Outstanding Sound Editing for a Nonfiction Program category — as a sound editor on "Cartel Land," and as a Foley artist on the "Lack of Humility" episode of "Making a "Murderer."

Sometimes music editors, more so than composers, find themselves working consistently on similar kinds of movies at different times during their careers. Rarely, however, does a music editor work on projects of such vastly different genres within a short time as Brian Bulman (pictured) found himself doing recently. The hugely diverse results of his efforts will be seen in the August release of two movies — the R-rated potty-mouthed animated comedy, 'Sausage Party,' and the third theatrical feature adaptation of Lew Wallace’s Biblical epic, 'Ben-Hur.'

If you're in New York and involved in post, the daylong Sight, Sound & Story is a not-to-miss annual gathering that you don’t want to mix. Now in its fourth year, it is organized and run ably by Josh Apter and the Manhattan Editors Workshop staff.
One lovely Saturday this summer, over 300 editors, filmmakers, and post-production professionals opted to pack the NYIT Auditorium on Broadway for a full day of panels focused on the art of editing documentary films, episodic TV and visual effects.

Deluxe Technicolor Digital Cinema Employees Vote to Join IATSE
By a vote of 43-20, employees of Deluxe Technicolor Digital Cinema on Thursday voted to join IATSE and its postproduction local the Motion Picture Editors Guild. This comes a year after postproduction technicians and artists at Deluxe’s Culver City unit on the Sony lot overwhelmingly jumped into the union game. For the approximately 70 technicians involved in the digital equivalent of film print production, promises were made by both Deluxe Entertainment and union officials of improved wages and other benefits – which ultimately by a margin of 68% the DTDC employees chose to go the union way.

The New York Times Endorses Hillary Clinton for President
In any normal election year, we’d compare the two presidential candidates side by side on the issues. But this is not a normal election year. A comparison like that would be an empty exercise in a race where one candidate — Hillary Clinton — has a record of service and a raft of pragmatic ideas, and the other, Donald Trump, discloses nothing concrete about himself or his plans while promising the moon and offering the stars on layaway. (We will explain in a subsequent editorial why we believe Trump to be the worst nominee put forward by a major party in modern American history.)

"The biggest challenge in my job is dealing with producers who don’t let me be creative and just want me to be a pair of hands for them. The way I deal with that is by being incredibly patient and then showing them an edited scene or two in a way they haven’t seen before and that makes the scene better — thereby earning their trust."
