In Conversation: Eddie Hamilton PART 2
Yep, Eddie’s back! One of the coolest guys to ever sit in front of a timeline has returned to impart more wise words, insight and advice on crafting a career in feature film editing.
In part two of this fascinating interview, Eddie tells us how he communicates with directors and creates the perfect environment for creative collaboration. He also talks about many of the films that taught him the intricacies of pace and timing as well as how to edit archive footage. And his insights into how we should make ourselves incredibly valuable on any production are extremely useful.
Yet again, listening to an editing artist who has risen to the very top of their genre is very inspiring and I’m sure you’ll get a lot out of it.
