EDITING ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT
When shooting wraps on an episode, the toughest part of the work is just beginning. Each episode of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT seems to require about twenty hours of intense editing work from Mitch and he often wants me to be a part of it. Why? Because I was there for the shooting, so I know all the footage and I also know where the good takes are.
This is more complicated than it sounds, because you rarely get a perfect take all the way through. You get good pieces. I find myself saying “I liked it when he said this line in this take and I liked this reading of this other line in this take…”
It requires a lot of patience.
