On Saturday I was very lucky to attend “TriBeCa Talks Industry: The Cutting Room - An Insight to the Edit Suite,” a talk with Thelma Schoonmaker, at the TriBeCa Film Festival. Ms. Schoonmaker has won 3 Academy Awards for film editing & is Martin Scorcese’s long-time collaborator.

She based her talk around Raging Bull, discussing the editing process but also highlighting the acting, sound editing, & photography. It was wonderful to hear her break down a few select scenes, frequently showing them twice to make sure we caught what we may have missed the first time around. A highlight was hearing first-hand what Ms. Schoonmaker considers one of the most difficult scenes she has edited, one that not only included a large amount of improvisation by the actors, but it also contained two (sometimes crying) young children & was shot with only one camera (for those of you who have seen Raging Bull, it’s the scene in the kitchen where Jake, Joey, Vickie, & Lenora are discussing his upcoming fight against Tony Janiro, seen above).

An interesting fact we learned was that TCM is frequently kept on (muted) in the background of the editing room, which I liked because it’s also a habit of my dad’s (altho not muted & usually too loud).

One of the most fascinating talks I’ve ever attended. If you’d like to read more  about the talk, check out this list of highlights on Indiewire.com.

A huge thanks to VDKA6100 for the passes :)

San Francisco’s SFpark gradually adjust rates on parking spots based on demand. One of the benefits is that “cruising” for parking — driving around and clogging up streets after you’ve already reached your destination — is down by 50 percent.

No Surface Without a Seat

Berlin isn’t the warmest of places, so I was continually surprised by the amount of outdoor seating around the city.  In some neighborhoods, sidewalk cafes, public benches, beer gardens, or terraces seemed to be at every turn.  But what surprised me even more than the sheer amount of seating, was the seemingly ad-hoc, improvised, or innovative nature of many of the options.  Anywhere there was a surface or some extra space, you were bound to find a cushion, a folding chair, a crate, or some recycled materials inviting you to sit down and take a break.  It wasn’t limited to restaurants and bars either - cushions and chairs could be found on the steps, ledges, sidewalks, and street corners outside of clothing stores, gift shops, and all sorts of other random places.

My visit was in April, presumably the time of year when these chairs and cushions first emerge from winter storage.  I’d be curious to take walk through the city in summertime to see them in greater use, and to see if even more sprout up.  It must create an impressively vibrant street life.

Take a seat!
