Whew! I have to admit that sometimes it’s really hard to cut these scenes. The sound was actually recorded as in documentaries. So if the actors interrupt each other’s sentences you can’t really do anything about it. Besides, each take of a scene very often has a completely different content than the other takes. But that’s also what makes it more interesting, of course :-). By the way, Matze and I have now split the scenes amongst us. We are doing shift work now.

Barbara asked me if I wanted to co-edit the movie – something I definitely did not expect! I had cut a few scenes and was very happy to hear that she liked them… At first I wasn’t sure if Matze would be okay with it, so I wrote him an e-mail in order to ask him. But when he wrote that it was alright with him of course I gratefully accepted the offer :-)
After weeks of trying out editors and even starting to edit scenes myself, I discovered the outrageous talent of my assistant editor. All these weeks she was right there and I didn’t really see the talent of hers. She definitely is a talented, patient, ambitious editor of high quality. When I asked her to edit my movie she couldn’t believe it and was super-happy. When I told her that I was unhappy with what had already been edited and I wanted to start from the beginning with Scene1, she almost fainted. – Well, only 190 more scenes to edit. J
