90to5 Editor Bio: I’m a student, an assistant editor. I’ll become a film editor.
In the meanwhile: http://editorunderconstruction.blogspot.com.es/

I’m a student -partially an assistant editor- and I love cinema. I always wanted to do this exercise (to summarize a film) to myself, so I had to make the most of this opportunity (such an awsome idea!). Nonetheless, this was just an encouragement and more edits will come! I’ve chosen this film for several reasons: the structure, the footage, the message and the language (I love languages and I needed to brush up my French).

  1. Seus olhos são perfeitos Pablo. Parabéns primo!

  2. Very beautiful and poetical editing.

  3. For a few days I’ll be focusing on the cogrvaee of the dropping of the atomic bomb, which was a political watershed as well as a scientific one. Quite a lot of weirdness occurred in the aftermath, including a false surrender report, the real Japanese surrender, and some very odd (from a modern scientific perspective) claims that the atom bomb wasn’t that scary because not all the uranium in it detonated., though, and his death made huge waves all over the nation. Thanks for drawing him to our attention!
