Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Removing significant things, part of Creating a Short Film: 08 Editing.
- [Narrator] As an editor you absolutely must…make peace with the fact that you will be cutting out…important things from a film.…Things that mean a lot to the director…or that cost everyone tons of time and money.…But your job is to not care about that at all.…You have to be a guardian of the story first and foremost.…On the assurance, a model friend of mine Kelsey Tiger…volunteered to come to this Japanese garden…and get this footage.…And we had to schedule and cancel a few times…because the leaves had to be just right…and we had a very tight window…before the blossoms were gone.…
Kelsey had to awkwardly change…into this complicated wardrobe in a public park bathroom.…It was a long walk to this spot…from the entrance to the garden…and she didn't get paid anything, we filmed it on a hot day,…but I really wanted this shot…to show how the world used to be beautiful and abundant.…However in the re-edit we had to cut that scene…and also that entire story line out.…There was no place in our tightened,…more compact story for beauty and abundance.…
