Quote Maryann Brandon has worked with Abrams many times, and reunited with him for The Rise of Skywalker, due in December. But it’s a much quicker process than when they made 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, meaning Brandon actually had to be on set with Abrams to start cutting footage together as they were still shooting. “When we did The Force Awakens we started in May and we finished shooting in October, and we were out [the following] Christmas. For this film, we didn’t start until August, so we weren’t done until February shooting - so we have four months less time, and it’s a very big film. So I convinced JJ to let me cut on the set. He was like, ‘no, we never do that’.” I was like, ‘just try it, so I can start turning over shots’. "So I was on the set the entire time, and he got so used to it that he was like, ‘you need to be less than ten feet away from me at all times’ - so if the camera would move 10 feet, I would move 10 feet." https://www.express.co.uk/entertainment/films/1136655/Star-Wars-9-Rise-of-Skywalker-editing-post-production-editor-filming-on-set-tight-schedule She goes on to discuss the benefits of this approach, including getting pickup shots and inserts while the main production was still underway (this was done much later in post-production for TFA with reshoots -- a contributing factor to Williams constantly rewriting TFA as the edit kept changing). bollemanneke, Holko, The Illustrious Jerry and 4 others 7 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
