Director Daniel Hymanson and director/editor Isidore Bethel on the process of fine-tuning the documentary edit.
Director Daniel Hymanson and director/editor Isidore Bethel first collaborated together on Hymanson's directorial debut, 2020's So Late So Soon. Before beginning their work together, Bethel developed a methodology for exploring a director's ethical and artistic priorities through their raw footage and determining my potential contributions to them – a process he's since adopted as standard practice before agreeing to work on a given project.
Bethel is currently collaborating with Hymanson on a first-person film that he's directing (Wind Up), while Hymanson is co-directing and photographing a feature about how Bethel and his mother responded to the sudden death of his father. In this talk, moderated by Filmmaker Magazine director of editorial operations Vadim Rizov, the two will discuss how their specific editor/director, friend/friend and co-author/co-author relationship sits within the contemporary nonfiction landscape and consider working models for finding meaningful collaboration and long-term fulfillment.
