The Cutting Edge

“Once you start to realize that a film is the sum of its editing, then editing is the thing you’re always looking at.”
– Anthony Minghella

“For a writer it’s the word. For a composer or a musician, it’s the note. For an editor and a film maker, it’s the frame. The one frame off or two frames added (…) is the difference between a sour note and a sweet note, it’s the difference between clunky clumsy crap and orgasmic rhythm.”
– Quentin Tarantino

From: The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing (2004).
