Editing Beetlejuice With Jane Kurson, A.C.E. @ EDITFEST LA 2016
American Cinema Editors (ACE) launched EditFest in 2008 in Los Angeles in response to a need to put the industry’s top editors in conversation with other editors and post-production professionals.
In this episode I speak with Jane Kurson, A.C.E., about her experience editing the hugely popular (and now a classic) movie, Beetlejuice. She talks about how actor performances not only help the movie, but the edit as well. She also tells us about some challenges she had in editing it and how she overcame them. We also talk about another big movie she edited, Monster, with Charlize Theron.
