Kim Roberts (A Shine of Rainbows), and Elizabeth Yake (It’s All Gone Pete Tong). Exploiting Sound, Exploring Silence, on sound design and editing, will replace the Frame by Frame editing master class on September 29; it features Craig Berkey and Skip Lievsay (No Country for Old Men ). Also added, on October 3, is a session on cinematographers Frederick Elmes (Blue Velvet, The Ice Storm) and Ellen Kuras (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind ).
