Film Editor CV

The theatrical and home DVD releases of movies are the immediate work of Film Editors who create a seamless cinematic continuity out of disparate outtakes and rushes filmed by the director.  The Film Editor often collaborates with the director and the producer to arrive at an edited version for commercial or theatrical release to attain the required classification from the movie ratings board while editing a DVD or director’s extended or “uncut” version for private home viewing.
