“The Martian”: An interview with its editor

Margot & I liked the bejesus out of The Martian this past weekend, so I really enjoyed peeking behind the scenes with its editor, longtime Ridley Scott collaborator Pietro Scalia. I especially enjoyed hearing about his pre-digital work on JFK, characterized by its mashing-up of numerous footage types (“16mm, 1.85, Cinemascope, black and white, color, different forms of video, Super 8mm”). “Editing is writing with visuals,” he says.
