The Basic contents of an editing workshop disk

Finding the scene
To create an editing workshop for dialog editing, you need a scene which stands by itself. It must make sence when pulled out of the rest of the movie.
The overview movie
The overview movie is more than just the dailies cut apart and placed into chronological order. The overview movie is also a tour of the movie set and the most entertaining part of the disk.
The audio edit
In a conversation, the audio edit is the first step. This can be shown after the fact or the selection process can be shown, either as part of the overview movie or as a separate story.
Possible picture edits
You must decide if the editing workshop should show multiple possible edits for the picture which emphasizes one actor over another.
