1. This is an attempt to make an entertaining teaser using sequences from work new and old.

  2. A solid script requiring a very focussed edit - concentrating on the bare bones of story and character. An intriguing plot and interesting character performances needed a simple, uncutty style. Director Marc Jobst had a clarity of vision reflected in the quality of material I had to work with. An abundance of riches in fact!

  3. Lovely American Director John Erman is elegant and sophisticated with an abundance of good taste and this was reflected in the dailies of the two productions I collaborated with him on (the other being Victoria and Albert).
    John prefers to allow the performances to play largely uninterrupted within the frame resulting in an uncutty style and who needs to cut away from such class performances from Marisa Tomei and Mathilda May.
    The sequel to 'Love Story', Rob Morrow plays a medical student who falls in love with Mathilda then marries Marisa when Mathilda's father objects to their union. Fast forward to a time when the student is now a doctor treating a dying first love with the knowledge of his wife.
    I find the piano/oboe sequence so moving - it is all said without words and Marisa's face says it all. What a performance!
    When editing I always lose myself completely in the story
    so there were lots of tears during this one!

  4. I am proud of the BAFTA Award I won for editing this production. Working from such an outstanding heartfelt script was a great start. David Blair's sensitive direction brought the blend of tragedy and comedy into a mix that targeted straight to your soul. My task was to be true to the performances and keep the blend accurate. Music editing such a collection of world famous tracks was daunting - I often had to manipulate the music track to fit what was going on with the pictures but without anyone noticing. That was tough.
    David Tennant's debut appearance made it quite clear he was destined for stardom.

  5. The brief here was to keep everything tense - well, with a group of sweaty submariners coping with a disaster that could have started World War Three that was straightforward.
    I tried my best to choose parts of Rutger Hauer's performance that showed him to be a caring master to his crew so that we totally sympathised with him.
    The hard bit was coping with the parallel action in rival submarines as their crews experience dangerous situations at the same moment, without short-changing either side's dilemmas.
