Attention everyone! The Time Traveler’s Wife opens everywhere tomorrow! Yahoo! Based upon the wonderful best-seller, the film stars Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams, AND it will be a biggy in my house because my son, Matthew, is one of the editors!!!!!!!! Rounds of applause, please! It was filmed in Toronto, so that meant that Matthew spent a few months last year in Canada. Tough duty, huh?! Then, after the shoot, they all returned to Los Angeles, where they worked for months to get it juuusssstttt right. When you edit, you are pulling all of the strands together — following the outline so that you know which scenes to use (there is always a lot more shot than actually used), putting in additional dialogue which might have to be re-recorded, putting in the musical score, putting in special effects, etc. etc. etc. That’s what my son does, and he loves it. Currently, if you are a reader of my blog, you know that he has been working on Jonah Hex. I blogged about that a short while back and put up the poster for that movie, due out next year.
OK – so here’s the deal! The first weekend is the big one for numbers on any film, so I want all of you to go to see it! Then, write me and share your thoughts! And, here’s a link to the official website for the film: The Time Traveler’s Wife .
*****At the end of the film, when the credits roll, look for my son. It will be something like this: Additional Editor…………………..Matt Diezel ! That’s my boy! See you all at the movies! Enjoy!
