David Fisher: Finding the Creative Edge

Editing covers a lot of different aspects which I love–first reading the script, getting rushes daily and assembling, working with a director in a fine a cut and then doing producer notes. Throughout these stages, storytelling is the key element, making sure the story is engaging.

Harry B. Miller III, ACE: On the Evolution of Storytelling

Shane Black’s sensibility is very rapid-fire. He feels the rhythm of the story, and can’t abide it feeling slow, so the cutting is like that, with hardly any setup in the action scenes. It makes an enjoyable ride.

Interview with Ryan Axe—Part One: The Adventure Begins

The main advantage Avid has over the competition is the ease of working in a shared environment with a team of assistants and editors. That is essential in a fast paced environment.
