A Look at the Hidden Power of Props
By Rishi Kaneria of the Raging Cinema Blog.
At a Q&A 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?" We're 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." We love this humble attitude. As editors we get to appreciate every department's craftsmanship. One of our jobs is to make it all shine.
