#174 - Three Lessons on Dealing with Other People from Star Wars Editor Paul Hirsch, ACE

Many editors know a lot about their craft.

Some editors are really good at talking about it.

One of those editors is Paul Hirsch, ACE. His credits include:

Carrie, Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, Footloose, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Planes Trains and Automobiles, Steel Magnolias, Falling Down, Mission: Impossible, Ray and many others.

In this issue of Cut/daily we'll take a look at three quick lessons from Paul, focused on the art of dealing with others in the filmmaking process; namely the top brass, actors and directors.
