The University of Arizona Department of Media Arts presents
Colloquium on Editing for Film
Working with the Director: An Editors Perspective

Tuesday, September 5, 2006 (NEW DATE!)
10am-11:50am in Harvill104 (Second Street- East of Park Avenue)

From a Variety review of Street Thief (edited by Nadav Kurtz):
"From the very first, the artful placement of cameras and the suspenseful
intercutting between long-shot and close-up, as well as the thoughtful jump
cuts, sudden angle-changes and sophisticated montages belie the idea of an
on-the-fly documentary."  Ronnie Scheib, Variety, April 30, 2006

NADAV KURTZ is a film editor, sound designer, and director. He graduated
with honors from the University of Chicago with a degree in English
Literature and a focus on film theory. His editing and sound design work
for national advertising campaigns have won Hugo, Addy and AICP honors and
awards. In 2006, he was nominated for the Best of Chicago editing award
from the AICE for his work on a campaign for Boeing. Outsider, Inc., an
editing and design boutique based in Chicago, currently represents him as a
commercial editor.

Nadav's film editing and directing work has shown at international film
festivals including the Tribeca Film Festival, the L'Etrange Festival in
Paris, the Edinburgh International Film Festival, the Chicago Underground
Film Festival, and the Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival. He spent two years
collaborating as an editor, producer, and writer with director Malik Bader
on Street Thief, a feature film that premiered at the 2006 Tribeca Film
Festival and played to sold-out crowds. Street Thief is currently in
negotiation for distribution.

This event is open to the public and sponsored by the Academy of Motion
Picture Arts and Sciences Media Arts Visiting Filmmakers Program and the
