Helvetica on PBS

The US television broadcast date for Helvetica has been set. The film will air January 6th nationwide on PBS, as part of the awesome Independent Lens series. It’s a shortened version of the film (54 minutes versus the original 80) but the edits were done by myself and original editor Shelby Siegel. It’s funny, but by going back and re-examining the film and being forced to cut things out, we actually figured out a few ways of handling certain parts differently that I sort of wish we would’ve done in the original film…

Helvetica will also be included in ITVS’s Community Cinema program, with free public screenings in 65 cities across the country in December. Stay tuned for more details.
