First Cut 1, Ch 3, Pg 59. Tom Haneke, documentary editor.

"To be an editor, you need the ability to see connections between things and a desire to order them. Life needs an editor sometimes. If we could only montage this party, cut to the core of this graduation speech. If we could only get this next to that, everything would be clear. You can't do that, but it's appealing to think about."

First Cut 1, Ch 4, Pg 77. Carol Littleton.

"When I'm in the dark, alone, and I'm looking at the film for the first time, it's very exciting. Then when the director comes in, you're dealing with the mind and heart of the person who has the most intimate knowledge of the film. You go through problems together, talk, hash it over, find solutions. It's you two at the end. It really is magic. We're sort of alchemists. We put a lot of elements together, and we're hoping to make it gold."
