The four-day retreat will be held at the Deauville Beach Resort Hotel, and will give accomplished editors a chance to participate in discussions and presentations on emerging trends, technology and workflows.

Nelson got his start in the 1970s, editing the television mini-series, The Captain’s and the Kings, and has gone on to receive six “Best Editing” Emmy-nominations. His work on Lost, Six Feet Under, China Beach and The Greatest American Hero all garnered recognition. More recently, Nelson has worked on The West Wing, House and Madmen. In the keynote, he will discuss his approach to the creative decision-making process, as well as outline his past and current experiences of editing and producing over 50 television movies, pilots and series episodes.

The Retreat is produced by Future Media Concepts, in association with the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), and is sponsored by both Adobe and Avid. Registration is still open for editors with a minimum of five-years extensive professional experience.
