The Ghosts In Our Machine

Edit Phase One: Complete

The most challenging and laborious phase of any big documentary is creating a cohesive Assembly and Rough Cut edit. A skillful editor carefully reviews all of the footage, edits selects, makes critical sense of the material and works closely with the director to shape the vision for the film. Since June I have had the pleasure of working with editor Roland Schlimme (Petropolis; Manufactured Landscapes; Gambling, Gods and LSD). We recently completed the Assembly Edit. Here we are in the suite last week, wrapping up. Roland has moved on to edit Jennifer Baichwal’s new documentary Water. The next intensive editing phase begins soon, I am excited to work with editor Rod Deogrades to complete the documentary.
