    DUNE 2

    Today on Art of the Cut, we’re talking with Oscar winner, Joe Walker, ACE. I interviewed Joe in person just before the ACE Eddies at his home on a rainy Los Angeles day… you may hear some of that in the background.

    Joe was one of the very first Art of the Cut guests on March 18th, 2014 - a decade ago - when he was nominated for an Oscar, a BAFTA and an ACE Eddie for his editing of 12 Years a Slave. Since then we’ve talked about his work on Sicario - another ACE Eddie nomination - Arrival - BAFTA and Oscar nominations and an ACE Eddie win - Bladerunner 2049 - BAFTA and ACE Eddie nominations -, then Widows, then Dune - for which he was nominated for a BAFTA and an ACE Eddie and won the Oscar - , then, most recently we talked when he cut The Creator, and now - Dune 2. Eight great discussions that you should go back and have a listen to!

    Joe has a lovely ability to edit instinctively, but be able to explain where that instinct is coming from, plus, you just want to grab a beer or a cup of tea and listen - just to feel part of a great, fun conversation.

Incredibly Valuable Podcast. Thank you Steve!

I discovered Art of the Cut a couple of days ago and I have quickly become obsessed. The Mission Impossible, Asteroid City, Yellowstone, and Tar episodes blew my mind with how much insightful information they packed. I’m a film student and I have learned as much if not more from one episode of this pod than I have from entire semesters of some of my classes. The podcast isn’t just educational either, it’s a real pleasure listening to Steve and his guests talk editing and film.

P.S. Jennifer Lame please come on and discuss Oppenheimer!
