2019 Wisdom from Art of the Cut

A year in quotes from the best editors in the world

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, these images won’t be new to you – though I’ve never put them all in one spot before. If you don’t follow me on Twitter or Instagram, I pull little tidbits of wisdom out of the Art of the Cut interviews and post them there. Usually, there are two or three quotes per interview. Here are almost all of them for the year. (Some of the 120 wouldn’t upload for one reason or another.)

If there’s some awesome piece of wisdom that you love, make sure to go back and read the whole interview. Also, most of these will be making their way into a new “ART OF THE CUT: Conversations with Film and TV Editors VOLUME 2” book, hopefully coming out by the end of 2020.

The first 50 interviews in the series provided the material for the book, “Art of the Cut: Conversations with Film and TV Editors.” This is a unique book that breaks down interviews with many of the world’s best editors and organizes it into a virtual roundtable discussion centering on the topics editors care about. It is a powerful tool for experienced and aspiring editors alike. Cinemontage and CinemaEditor magazine both gave it rave reviews. No other book provides the breadth of opinion and experience. Combined, the editors featured in the book have edited for over 1,000 years on many of the most iconic, critically acclaimed and biggest box office hits in the history of cinema.
