Part of Ilex's groundbreaking series on moviemaking, each of which offers in-depth interviews with a host of the most distinguished practitioners of their field, this book offers an unparalleled insight into the hidden art that is editing. The value of the editor's craft to a finished film cannot be underestimated, and it's no surprise that directors rely heavily on the same editor over and over again. Seventeen exclusive interviews with some of the world's top film editors, including Walter Murch, Virginia Katz, Joel Cox, Tim Squyres and Richard Marks, explore the art of film editing; its complex processes, the relationship with other film practitioners, and the impact of modern editing techniques. This book: features a great collection of photos and anecdotes from the heroes of the global industry Jeffrey P. Nesker (Director/Editor); features sumptuous film stills illustrating the editors thought processes and decision-making; is presented with legacies of the greatest 20th-century film editors including Peter Zinner, Dede Allen and Sally Menke.
