Woo Hoo! As many of you know, my son, Matthew, is a film editor in Hollywood. He has been there twelve years, and has had some wonderful opportunities to travel, meet interesting people, and work his butt off! Little did I realize when he began his career that he would work an average of 60-70 hours a week, many weekends, and sometimes straight through for a year without a vacation. if you have been to see The Out-of-Towners, Paulie, The Substitute, Booty Call, Mission Impossible 2, Price of Glory, Scooby Doo, Scooby Doo 2, Catwoman, Bad Santa, The Lake House, or Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers, you will have seen some of his work, mostly as an assistant editor, and occasionally as a visual effects editor. His effects unit won an Emmy for the Sci-Fi Channel’s Dune mini series. Am I a proud Mom, or what?????
He completed a film over one year ago, and it will be released on October 24. The film stars Anne Hathaway (The Devil Wears Prada) as a counselor who is working with survivors of a plane crash, and discovers more than she bargained for. Click on Passengers, and take a look! AND, this is the first film for him to have an additional editor’s credit – a major step forward in his career!
