and I finally meet the Legendary Walter Murch

After 159 days from moving to Los Angeles to persue a career in post production I get to meet a true legend in the world of film. Walter Murch, one of the world's most prominent editors and sound mixers. His filmography includes but is not limited to most recently editing "Jarhead", "Cold mountain", " The English Patient","Talented Mr. Ripley", " The Godfather" and many many more.
What makes Murch such a great person is his view on things, and how he approaches editing. His book "In the Blink of an Eye" is a must read for any avid film fan or professional, and to get to know more about how he thinks and operates " Behind the Seen: How Walter Murch Edited Cold Mountain" is an excellent window into the legend of modern film editing.

I'm excited that i finally got to meet Walter Murch, the number one person on my "must meet"
list.

Here is a pic of me with Murch
