Editing Ninja begins Editing Abandoned

Jason Paluck has begun editing Abandoned.

Writer-Producer-Director Terry R. Wickham talks about watching the first 6 minutes of footage so far on Abandoned, “Jason started putting together the movie from Scene 3 going forward 6 minutes.  What really strikes me about it is how clean, fluid and economical the film plays.

That was the approach that DP Adrian Popescu and I took.  It’s tremendously cinematic and at the same time there’s no wasted shots.

I actually can’t stand watching movies that are all covered the same way.  To me those are directors that don’t know what they want (i.e. don’t have a vision) and try to find their movies in the editing room.  I don’t believe it that clueless approach.

I also didn’t have any extra time or money to squander time shooting unnecessarily, so Abandoned is very precise.

My favorite directors John Carpenter, James Cameron and Michael Mann all bring a super strong vision for what they want and I subscribe to their tactical way of thinking. ”
