“Yellowjackets” Editor Kevin Ross, ACE, Joins Manhattan Edit Workshop as Artist in Residence

MEWShop’s Six Week Intensive Art of Editing Workshop Next Class Starts March 4th!

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Manhattan Edit Workshop (MEWShop) is thrilled to announce that Editor Kevin Ross, ACE, will be joining us as our next Artist in Residence. Renowned for his outstanding contributions to the acclaimed series “Yellowjackets,” Kevin offers students an exclusive opportunity to glean insights from his firsthand experiences. During his time with the workshop, he will draw upon his diverse industry background to delve into the intricacies of entering and excelling in this dynamic field.

Hailing from a small town in Missouri, Kevin Ross, ACE, earned his Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Missouri, before following his dream of working in the film industry and heading west to Hollywood. He attended the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, receiving his Masters in production, and basically fell into the world of post-production by pure luck.

Kevin has spent the entirety of this 30+ year film career in editorial. From his first paid job as a second assistant editor on the non-union feature “Kickboxer 2” to his most recent work on “Yellowjackets” season 2 and the Netflix live-action series “One Piece,” he has watched first-hand how post production has evolved from 35mm film shows to the latest in non-linear productions. The transition from assistant ranks to editor was not always smooth sailing, but along the way, he has amassed more than 160 episodes of tv and ten features to his editor resume. Kevin has been nominated twice for Emmy and Eddie editing awards, and he is currently editing the 7th season of Paramount+ “Seal Team” and will return for season three of “Yellowjackets” later this spring.

When not editing, he is busy enjoying life with his wife, twins, and two dogs.

MEWShop’s upcoming Six Week Intensive Workshop is scheduled to commence on March 4, 2024, and will be conducted live, both in person and online. Classes will run Monday through Friday, beginning at 10 AM ET and concluding at 5 PM ET.
