Podcast - In Love With The Process
Episode 88 | Film Editing: Mandy (Guest Brett W. Bachman)
"Mandy. If you listen to this show, you're probably as obsessed with that film as we are, and if you aren't: stop what you're doing. Go watch it right now. Once you've seen Nic Cage in an acid-induced chainsaw fight, I'm betting you'll feel the same way we do. The whole film has such a unique voice, and it's clear that this was purposely created by the director and editor. Host Mike Pecci has admitted that this podcast is an excuse for him to talk to people he'd love to work with, and when you add in the fact that we haven't had an episode focused on editing, our guest, Brett Bachman, was the obvious choice. In addition to Mandy, Brett has edited other ILWP favorites like Color Out of Space and Daniel Isn't Real. If you're as big of a fan of these films as we are, this conversation between Mike and Brett is just everything you could want."
