About this book

Most of the Directors I've worked with needed someone to talk to who is deep inside the heart of the movie. - Mick Audsley, Film Editor Film editing is understood by the industry to be one of the most crucial contributions to film-making. World-class British editors such as Antony Gibbs and Anne Coates have received recognition of their importance in Hollywood and experienced British Editors have important roles in a surprising number of major American movies . This book attempts to explain this mot elusive of roles by allowing editors to describe in their own words what they do and to bring them into the critical and public spotlight. It is the most comprehensive survey of its kind to date and is based upon interviews with many distinguished editors who have worked on films as diverse as Blade Runner and Carry on Up the Khyber, Die Hard 2 and Blow Up, American Beauty and Performance. The British Film Editor also provides a detailed history of editing, together with extensive filmographies.
