Editing Marvel Films

Like everyone else in the world, I would love to work on a Marvel movie one day. (Now where is my Iron Man t-shirt?)

How To Edit With Silence, From TV Editor Chris McCaleb

[Y]ou can’t figure out how to get into somebody else’s head unless you spend time watching them not talk and just being with them and staying on their face.

The silence is not a blank space but filled with the imagination of the audiences.

And what’s cool about visual medium, movies and TV, it’s so many different paintbrushes coming together to paint something that is often totally different than what you imagined it would be. Sometimes it’s better, a lot of times it’s worse but it’s always an interesting journey to get there.

This is why I believe computers/AI will never replace us, editors.

ART OF THE CUT with Evan Schiff, editor of John Wick 3

The other interesting thing that we do is that when we’re in the middle of the director’s cut, we give Chad an Avid with access to all the fight dailies... Being the incredibly knowledgeable martial artist that he is, he’ll go through and he’ll do his own cuts of the fights and then we’ll compare. He’ll see that somebody didn’t get an elbow in the right position in the take that I chose and he’ll find a take where they did.

A great interview about editing one of the best action films in recent year.

the Debt We Owe to the Truth #ChernobylHBO

The lesson of Chernobyl is that lying and ignoring facts comes with a deadly cost and we can do it and we can keep doing it. We can keep electing reality television stars to office and we can keep believing what we want to believe and reading things on Facebook and deciding that they’re true, but we are accruing a debt to the truth and that debt comes due one way or the other.

This interview with the creator Craig Mazin is fascinating on many levels, not just the show itself. First episode alone made Chernobyl my favorite TV show of 2019.
