The Making of a Motion Picture Editor
Thomas A. Ohanian
Thomas A. Ohanian is an Academy Award and three-time Emmy recipient. He is a recognized business and technical expert in the media and entertainment industry.
What does it take to be a motion picture editor? Learn from some of the most decorated editors in motion picture history over the span of 551 films, 360 Academy Awards® and another 785 nominations.
Film, Broadcast, and Media students, film lovers, aspiring motion picture editors. The book will appeal to students, instructors, and people who love motion pictures.
Book cover type
The competitive book has all film titles on the front cover. I can't copy that approach. The book is an interview book of motion picture editors who have won an enormous amount of awards.
What to avoid
We cannot use the Academy Award or Emmy award statuettes images for legal reasons.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.

And then… they selected a winner!
Alex captured my genre very well with the cover of "How to Get Government Contracts". I showed a lot of people the cover and they were floored with the goodness. I believe this book cover will "steal" buyers. Thanks Alex.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
