    Check in when you're not in front of FCPX

    June 15, 2012, 8:21 am

      Singer And Cruise Reduced Valkyrie Editor To Tears

      February 20, 2019, 10:38 am
      Watching movies can certainly be an emotional experience, but so can making them. When people pour their heart and soul into their job it can be emotionally taxing. Sometimes, however, your co-workers just drive you to break down. That's apparently what happened to John Ottman, the editor on the Tom Cruise World War II drama Valkyrie. Apparently, the star would come in and work with Ottman in the editing room, then writer Christopher McQuarrie would come and make changes to what Cruise had done, which would then be followed by director Bryan Singer making more changes.

      11 Youtube Channels Filmmakers Should Follow

      February 19, 2019, 1:43 pm
