Tour de 'Source

August 14, 2008, 02:04 PM


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. For me, that wish was answered when I discovered MasterSource’s online music library and accompanying MasterSearch...

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. Following his unconventional path, this past year the 28-year-old served as assistant on three features––all of them due for release this year: Choke (September) and Blind Date (TBA), both of which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and Lake City (TBA), which had its first screening...

Film Editor James Haygood on 30-Second Stories

August 9, 2008, 02:54 PM


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).

Dan Lebental interview Part 3

August 5, 2008, 09:42 AM


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".
