Why Props Matter

A look at the hidden power of props, by Rishi Kaneria of the Raging Cinema Blog.

At a Q&A I was at once with editor Arthur Schmidt he was asked something along the lines of "How do you choose what to cut out when you have a great actor like Tom Hanks and a great director like Robert Zemeckis?" I'm paraphrasing Arthur's answer. It was something like "when you have a great director, a great actor, great cinematography, costumes, sets, composers, and when basically everyone around you is the best at their craft you just don't want to screw your part up." I love this humble attitude. As editors we get to appreciate every department's craftsmanship. One of our jobs is to make it all shine.
