Check out the new video on the Kartemquin YouTube channel of David E. Simpson discussing his editing philosophy with Kartemquin interns and showing exclusive clips from our in-progress documentary A Good Man, about the award-winning choreographer Bill T. Jones and his attempt to translate the legacy of Abraham Lincoln into modern dance.
As part of our commitment to nurturing the next generation of documentary filmmakers, Kartemquin runs a respected internship program, featuring weekly educational workshops in which staff members and associates share their wisdom and experiences of working in the industry with the interns. We're also giving them the chance to cut their teeth on some of our web videos: this video of the workshop was filmed and edited by Spring '10 intern Lesley Onstott, who we think did a great job.
A Good Man will air on PBS' "American Masters" in 2011, and is a co-production with Media Process Group and Ravinia.
