SPACE DOGS – A Case Study on Editing for Documentary Filmmakers
Last but not least – that’s how editing for documentaries can be described. The editing room is where all the pieces are put together, here the story fully evolves.To support filmmakers in this process, producer Iikka Vehkalahti and editor Menno Boerema launched Rough Cut Service (RCS), a consultancy service for filmmakers with a documentary in rough cut stage. Through RCS, filmmakers get detailed feedback, input and specific suggestions to improve their cut and finalize the film they envision.
In this session the consultants Anne Fabini and Iikka Vehkalahti and the filmmakers Elsa Kremser and Levin Peter will give us insight on the editing and consulting process of their award winning Documentary SPACE DOGS.

Impressive archive material reveals the significance of Laika and the stray dogs of Moscow in the conquest of the universe. From their viewpoint, we accompany two dogs on their forays through Moscow’s streets. Poetic and occasionally brutal. Link to SPACE DOGS
