I love hearing people talk about their creative process. This article, about the process Aaron Wickenden, ACE followed to cut Penny Lane’s new documentary, “Hail Satan?” is fascinating. I particularly appreciate the analogy he draws between cutting a documentary and putting together a puzzle (corners first!). I’m pretty excited to see the film, too.
Steven Soderbergh is a fascinating director. I really admire his willingness to push boundaries, whether it’s in the development of “Mosaic,” a show released as a TV drama and an app-based, interactive experience or in using iPhones to produce feature-length work. This interview previews some of his upcoming projects and provides a deep dive on a wide variety of subjects, from his lighting philosophy to his feelings about power windows and perfectionism.
