I have nothing against the director being in the room, so long as he keeps quite.
People often ask me if I have a style of editing.
I usually say I don’t, but one day my daughter said, “Oh yes, you do! We were studying it in class”
Anne V. Coates
Sometimes you have to cut because somebody blew a line or you have to switch takes, but you always want a cut to look as if you did it for a reason, rather than to hide a mistake. Every cut should have some motivation behind it, as if it is conveying some new information.
Movies become art after editing. Instead of just reproducing reality, they juxtapose images of it. That implies expression; that’s art.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
I’ve said this to many directors: You’ve gone too far. You’ve got to stop. Often if something’s not working, people will put more cuts or shots in, and it’s almost always better to take shots out and calm it down. If something doesn’t seem quite right and you don’t really know why, SIMPLIFY. That’s something I’ve learned through trial and error.
Anne V. Coats
I sometimes look at the performances in other movies and come away thinking, the director didn’t really protect that actor. I am very aware of the sacredness of the trust I am being given in terms of an actor’s performance.
Located in the heart of the city, our studio is a private and spacious place designed by editors for editors. After years of working long hours in tiny, depressing rooms, we decided to build a studio where one can actually enjoy the process of shaping their dreams. The studio holds two fully equipped editing suits with an extensive music and SFX library, a cinema projector and a surround sound system for a pleasant editing/screening environment. And of course, there is always good coffee. So swing by whenever you can.
*Civil Editors are cutting w/ Avid Media Composer running on Macintosh Operating Systems.
Civil Editors design, direct and produce theatrical film trailers, teasers, viral or tv promos and pitching videos for feature films, video games and television dramas.
If in demand, the editors collective will be more than happy to execute the whole post production process, or even include all fields of planning to their services.
