90to5 Editor Bio: I’m a freelance editor working in a range of genres, such as documentary, TV and film, since 2005.
I believe the process of editing to be extremely systematic, however within the system there is a chaotic, organic substance called story that must be shaped, molded, and nurtured into existence – this is where the editor steps in, using creativity and intuition while remaining truthful to the material. I felt the limited location and shot size variations of The Little Shop of Horrors to be an interesting challenge to negotiate, while maintaining the offbeat and dark comedy of the film and sustaining a coherent story progression that is true to the original.
