Film editing has undergone a few major paradigm shifts since it’s inception with glue and splicers (and in-camera editing before that), but the greatest of them came in the late 80s with the mainstream acceptance of non-linear editing. This transition provided editors with a plethora of new tools that made their work more efficient and their means of accomplishing it more capable. But the most revolutionary thing...

Eat Pray Love, a new Columbia Pictures feature film based on the Elizabeth Gilbert novel of the same title and starring Julia Roberts, was edited entirely in Final Cut Pro. Apple has posted a page detailing the editing team's immense task of turning 70 hours of footage shot in four different countries into a two hour film--all on a tight time-frame.

The American Cinema Editors’ (ACE) third annual EditFest LA took place the first weekend of August at Universal Studios. It was a veritable feast of editing talk. The five panel discussions covered a lot of ground––from breaking into the business and making the transition from assistant to editor, to analyzing scenes and talking shop. The opening panel, Welcome to EditFest, moderated by the organization’s president, Randy Roberts, A.C.E., highlighted just how much the field of editing has...

"It’s a comedy about cancer, so there will of course be dramatic undertones to a lot of the material," says David Dworetzky one of three editors on The Big C, which premiered on Showtime on August 16. "But we have to keep in mind that we’re a comedy. It’s easier to forget than one would think." The Big C is a comedy about a woman (Laura Linney) with cancer who resolves to live life to the fullest. However, she doesn’t tell anyone she’s sick, so her family and friends are confused by...

Note that the award is called "Best Film Editing" not "Best Film Editor." That’s a crucial difference for me. Editing is truly collaborative, so it’s not really possible to say who made the editorial decisions that result in the film that we see. The editor/s accept this award as representatives for the film’s editing, but there is...

The movie, like the book, follows Gilbert from New York to Italy, where she indulges her senses; to India, where she explores her spirituality; and to Bali, where she finds love and the balance she has been seeking. But punching that ticket cinematically was a daunting challenge for director Ryan Murphy and producer Dede Gardner. And logistics were easily their biggest challenge. To faithfully translate Gilbert’s journey from page to screen, the filmmakers lobbied to shoot the movie entirely...
