Editors Julie-Anne De Ruvo and Nick Holmes will join performer Nicole Nabout for a discussion about the elements of craft and the technical skills an actor must execute to avoid the cutting room floor and the decisions directors, producers and editors make based on an actor's performance. Audience members will leave with a better understanding of the process of editing a one-hour dramatic episode  and how the actor can best serve that process.
