Editors of 'Brokeback Mountain' and 'Crash' To Keynote NAB Post|Production World at NAB2006

WASHINGTON, DC -- Dylan Tichenor, editor of Academy Award-nominated "Brokeback Mountain," and Hughes Winborne, Academy Award-nominated editor of "Crash," will be featured speakers at the NAB Post|Production World Conference.

Tichenor will share his experience cutting "Brokeback Mountain," show clips from that film and others to illustrate key points and challenges, and discuss his approach to the craft of editing during the Post|Production World Conference keynote session Saturday, April 22.

Tichenor's big break into the editing business came when he served as apprentice editor on "The Player" followed by assistant editor positions on "Short Cuts," "Prêt-à-Porter" [Ready to Wear] and Alan Rudolph’s "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle." He later worked as technical coordinator, co-editor and post-production supervisor. Tichenor edited award-winning features "Boogie Nights" and "Magnolia" and, most recently, Academy Award-nominated "Brokeback Mountain." His other credits as editor include "Hurlyburly," "Unbreakable," "The Royal Tenenbaums," and "Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events." Tichenor is currently working on "The Assassination of Jesse James."

During the Post|Production World Conference keynote session Sunday, April 23, Winborne will share his experience cutting "Crash" and show key clips from the film. In 15 years of editing, Winborne has cut more than 20 TV and film projects. Starting in documentaries and continuing to work primarily on independent films, Winborne served as editor on Billy Bob Thorton’s debut feature, “Sling Blade,” Toni Kalem’s “A Slipping Down Life,” starring Lili Taylor and Guy Pearce, and Mitch Rouse’s comedy “Employee of the Month,” with Matt Dillon and Steve Zahn. He is currently working on “Pursuit of Happyness,” starring Will Smith.
