How do you get to be Christopher Nolan’s editor? By cutting critically acclaimed films back to back (Manchester By The Sea, Hereditary, Marriage Story) and then sharing a common creative language. Or at least that’s what Christopher Nolan said when he was asked about his hiring of Jennifer Lame, ACE for Tenet and then Oppenheimer. “For me, hiring is about looking at the work people have done in the past, but not necessarily in relation to what you’re looking to do. I look for excellence and judgment. When meeting, it’s more about discovering if there’s a common creative language, which is e ..read more

The Best Film Soundtracks To Work To Film soundtracks are one of my favourite things to have on in the background when I’m working. That could be writing a blog post or issue of Cut/daily, when doing video editing tasks that don’t require listening to sync audio such as colour grading, titles, subtitles etc. Film soundtracks seem to help me focus and often spur me to get in the creative zone. My go-to music service is Amazon Prime Music Unlimited because I’m a long-time Amazon Prime member and I had all my playlists and such set up back when Amazon Prime Music was still useable.
