I am a strict adherent of discipline in the edit room. I’m not particularly precious with my material. There’s something exhilarating and liberating about editing material and seeing what happens. For me, the short film taught me that I can tell a really powerful story in 30 minutes. Essentially, every minute has to count. So with this film which is 79-minutes,I wanted to make sure that every one of those 79 minutes counts. I wanted to make it feature length only because the story requires it.
We talk to the documentarian about The Kill Team and finding his film in the editing room.
