Film Editor Christopher Tellefsen In Interview
Oscar nominated film editor Christopher Tellefsen is fast becoming one of my favourite editors having cut so many great films like Smoke, Blue in the Face, The People Vs Larry Flint, Man on the Moon, The Village, Capote and Moneyball (for which he got his Oscar nomination). Here is around up of interviews with Tellefsen on his approach to the craft.
Christopher Tellefsen in Conversation
This interview comes from the AOTG archives and comes from The Edit Fest NY discussion with Bobbie O’Steen focusing on his approach to cutting Metropolitan.
Here Tellefsen joins the crew of Moneyball on DP/30 to discuss the film. You can also read an interview/scene breakdown with Tellefsen on the NY Times blog page again on Moneyball. (Which by the way is based a really great book by Michael Lewis.)
These gems come from Tellefsen’s EditFest NY workshop. If you live in/near NY you’d be crazy to miss these opportunities to hear from great editors on their craft!
