A MUSIC EDITOR FOR ALL GENRES

Sometimes music editors, more so than composers, find themselves working consistently on similar kinds of movies at different times during their careers. Rarely, however, does a music editor work on projects of such vastly different genres within a short time as Brian Bulman (pictured) found himself doing recently. The hugely diverse results of his efforts will be seen in the August release of two movies — the R-rated potty-mouthed animated comedy, 'Sausage Party,' and the third theatrical feature adaptation of Lew Wallace’s Biblical epic, 'Ben-Hur.'

Deluxe Technicolor Digital Cinema Employees Vote to Join IATSE
By a vote of 43-20, employees of Deluxe Technicolor Digital Cinema on Thursday voted to join IATSE and its postproduction local the Motion Picture Editors Guild. This comes a year after postproduction technicians and artists at Deluxe’s Culver City unit on the Sony lot overwhelmingly jumped into the union game. For the approximately 70 technicians involved in the digital equivalent of film print production, promises were made by both Deluxe Entertainment and union officials of improved wages and other benefits – which ultimately by a margin of 68% the DTDC employees chose to go the union way.

JACQUES GRAVETT
PICTURE EDITOR:
"The biggest challenge in my job is dealing with producers who don’t let me be creative and just want me to be a pair of hands for them. The way I deal with that is by being incredibly patient and then showing them an edited scene or two in a way they haven’t seen before and that makes the scene better — thereby earning their trust."
