THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DIRECTOR AND EDITOR
To be frank and cut the matter with a “machete” you need an editor. The editor takes all the production footage and observes it in order to choose objectively what can work in the narrative.
The type of relationship between a director and an editor is comparable to the meeting between two directors who talk about the transposition of the film shooting and how the final film will be. In the dialogue between editor and director there are often many heated disagreements, but nevertheless it can be defined as one of the most creative moments in film making.
Editing is a moment in the making of a film in which the work can be saved, rewritten ore even ruined forever.
It is clear that if the director does a good job and the production guarantees an optimal performance of the filming, the editing task will be simplified. Only with high quality material can a masterpiece be obtained from the assembly.
