I would like to edit narrative films. I know this is a long and winding road to get there. But I'm looking for some inspiration along the way. What editors (currently working or past) do you find inspiration from and why?
Copy the link below to share this page:
Sam O'Steen, Verna Fields and Chris Dickens.
Transparency, complexity editing vs continuity editing, energy.
Great list! They have edited some amazing films. I look forward to studying them more.
Forgot to add Reza S. Badiyi who directed TV and created title sequences for a number of shows, including HAWAII FIVE-O. That open zapped me. It's was the main influence behind me becoming an editor.
I love well-done title sequences. It combines both my disciplines of study, film/television, and graphic design
Stuart Baird for action, who I know and love from Lethal Weapon but did a crap ton more (not all good); random, but Franco Arcalli for drama who worked with Bernardo Bertolucci, who I know from The Conformist but again is known for so much more - although Franco stopped working in the late '70s.
