In Conversation: Eddie Hamilton PART 1

You really won’t want to miss this week’s episode!

What do X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass 1 & 2, Kingsman 1 & 2 and Mission: Impossible 5 & 6 have in common? Only one thing… master film editor and long time Inside The Edit fan, Eddie Hamilton. I’ve loved Eddie’s work for many years and so I’m super excited that our very first guest on Once Upon a Timeline is one of Hollywood’s most successful editors.

From humble beginnings on the south coast of England, Eddie has built a career ladder that has placed him at the very top of Hollywood. I recently caught up with him as he was finishing off the much anticipated Top Gun: Maverick. Listening to his story, his advice for young editors and his overwhelming love for editing was an absolute joy.

In the first of a two-part series, Eddie talks through how he rose from quick turnaround sports news programs and low budget movies up to sharing an edit suite with Tom Cruise and Jerry Bruckheimer. He tells us about his drive to succeed, his meticulous creative process and how he cultivates relationships with some of Hollywood’s biggest names.

There’s a ton of wisdom, inspiration and insight in this episode and I know you’ll enjoy it.
