Only a handful of insiders really know what Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte have been up to these past few years. It is tantalizing to think about: the gossip, the canoodling, the shoes. These four beloved characters, who became pop-culture icons during the series' six-year run on HBO, will be a welcome sight for millions of ardent fans when Sex and the City: The Movie hits theaters this May.

It’s like some kind of dream for an editor — you get an endless supply of tapes, or digital files, and your job is to shape the content into a winning TV program that will engross skads of viewers once it’s passed muster with your producers, your director and the network. But there is no script. And you have to turn out a fresh, great-looking show every week. And the competition for those viewers could not be more fierce. And the tapes just keep coming and coming.

As a music editor, one of my most time-consuming tasks is just finding music, and I have always clung to the wish that I could find a one-stop place to shop for source music. And, taking that wish a step further, that after finding, cutting and clearing those obligatory "name artist" soundtrack tunes, I wish I could type in a few keywords and then head off to the beach.

Assistant editor Kyle Gilman’s career path has forked in many directions, including a series of roads less traveled, as he works his way toward his first, inevitable, full editor position.

James Haygood got his big break back in the mid-1980s, when he connected with a young music-video director named David Fincher. The happy collaboration led to A-list editorial credits for Haygood, including Madonna's "Vogue" and The Rolling Stones' "Love Is Strong," a number of TV commercials, and eventually feature-film work — The Game, Fight Club, and Panic Room. More recently, he worked as co-editor (with Spike Jonze regular Eric Zumbrunnen) on Where the Wild Things Are, and took up...

They say everything comes in threes. On September 9, Warner Home Video releases three home entertainment packages—a high-definition Blu-ray and two standard-definition boxed sets––of the restored How the West Was Won, MGM’s 1962 all-star Western epic that was one of only two narrative features shot entirely in the original Cinerama three-panel widescreen process (The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm was the other).
