'From the Cutting Room' to feature VFX pros Legato & Russell
NEW YORK — On November 21, Manhattan Edit Workshop will return with the next installment of its “From the Cutting Room” speaker series. The Thursday-night event will feature visual effects veterans Rob Legato (Hugo, Avatar, Shutter Island) and Mark Russell ( The Adjustment Bureau, Doubt, Minority Report), who collaborated recently on the upcoming Martin Scorsese film, The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Legato and Russell will give attendees a behind-the-scenes look at the techniques used to create many of the stunning visual effects featured in the film. They will also discuss how they take full advantage of the performance of HP’s Z Workstations, which are powered by Intel Xeon processors. The 7pm event will be moderated by MEWShop’s Josh Apter, and will take place at the French Institute in Manhattan.
