Apologies to thse that have ben visiting this site for the last month. We have been very busy in the edit room, and I guess we have been guilty of ignoring the site. Editing is a process that often is one of trial and error
And of course it is not like filming, where so much money is being spent n the day that there is little time for discussion. It is easy to make decisions on a shoot, merely because you have to.
But when u get into the edtiing room, several points of view come into the film. Not just the editor’s and mine as a director, but also the producer’s and the writer’s. It is a difficult process sometimes as sometimes there is a very thin line between judgement and prejudice. In almost everything we do.
I do have what I believe though, is one of the best editor’s in the world. Her job is a difficult one. To negotiate everyone’s opinion, to evealutae and not be prejudiced about any opinon, and yet to hold on the her instincts about the film.
It’s a tough time in the process of film making, and is often a frustrating time. But in the end it is probably time well spent. It’s a time to hold on to your instincts when u are faced with very diverse opinions.
