Walter Murch, hero of mine

I really like Walter Murch. I've read his book probably a dozen times (In The Blink of an Eye) and he's worked on some of my absolute favorite movies (Godfather, American Graffiti, Apocolypse Now, Talented Mr. Ripley, THX-1138, etc.). The man is someone to be listened to.

I was filled with delight to hear him on All Things Considered the other day and it boggles my mind how he works. I finally found the link and advise all of you to check it out.

This man cuts films standing up, on Final Cut and without sound.

Read this and listen to the segment.
He's a marvel to behold and you'll learn something.
