Working with 12 Years of Footage for Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood.” Interview with Mike Saenz.


Bryant Frazer interviewed me for StudioDaily. It’s my first interview as Assistant Editor of anything. I wrote once that I should write an article on the “Boyhood” Post process, which would be fascinating to like…4 or 5 Assistant Editors in the universe.

Bryant at StudioDaily saw that and offered to give me a leg up on that process with an interview. So here it is. Thanks, Bryant!

Highlights include arcane descriptions of our matchback procedure from 29.97 DV dailies to the 23.98 final 2k DCP that the world has seen and adored.

Also a blatant plug for “Up to Speed.” God, I hope we get to do more of those.
