Hereâ€™s part two of my interview with David Moritz, originally recorded during Editors Retreat 2015. Davidâ€™s work began after he started as a music editor and transitioned to editor under the mentorship of Richard Marks. He began working with Wes Anderson when Wes directed his first feature, Bottle Rocket. Since then his career has taken off and heâ€™s become one of the top editors and fixers in the industry.
David has worked with Wes Anderson on many projects and in this episode we explore how this relationship developed and how Andersonâ€™s respect and devotion to those he works with ensured that David worked with him on Bottle Rocket.
We discuss how through this relationship David got to watch Andersonâ€™s style develop and evolve.
Watching Bottle Rocket is a peculiar experience, especially after seeing Andersonâ€™s career become what it has since his debut feature. Itâ€™s like listening to your favorite band's first indie album - you can see Anderson's future in the notes that are played and you can see the unique creative relationship between Owen Wilson and Wes Anderson developing.
Towards the end of this episode we discuss a scene from Jerry Maguire in which Cuba Gooding Jr. gets knocked unconscious after catching the ball for a touchdown. David showed the moments leading up to the catch during a talk, and I referenced the cross cutting. I tried to find the moments leading up to the catch and it appears, every video available on YouTube is just after the catch. You can watch it below and youâ€™ll get a sense of the cross cutting, but we mostly focused on the stuff before.
