In this segment Dan gives us some great insights into the feature film editorial process. We discuss topics such as what it’s like screening the "first cut" with the director and starting out on the directors cut, bringing the length of IRON MAN down from 3.5 to it’s final running time of 2 hours, exploring variations of the film and reinventing scenes, and something he fondly refers to as "index card death row".
