While traditionally a script editor is the middleman keeping the screenwriter and the producer happy, the modern film-making and production world is as varied as any other profession. A good script editor is versatile and often wears a number of hats, working with video editors, directors, producers and other writers in both large and small productions. In this seminar, Abra Pressler explores different styles of script editing, how to create a story, and how, most importantly, storytelling can be weaved into other skills and increase your marketability as an editor.

Abra Pressler holds formal qualifications in screenwriting and has been working in production since 2016. She is professional writer and previously edited fiction for lit mag GORE journal. In 2018, Abra was elected as a Board Director for the ACT Writer’s Centre, where she advocates for writing and supports writers to further their craft. In her spare time, she writes fiction and enjoys good coffee.
