Walter Murch – Damn

Via Metafilter are links to Walter Murch’s work. He’s the guy that edited Apocalypse Now, The Talented Mr. Ripley and Jarhead and was a sound supervisor on the Godfather.

Opening of Apocalypse Now. Coppola, Sheen, the Doors and lots of napalm. Oh yeah. Play it again and again.

Baptism scene from the Godfather which was edited by Peter Zinner:

One Response to “Walter Murch – Damn”

  1. Mr Mulley,

    The lone voice that shouted out to me in the wilderness. Good on you Sir.

    Wierdly Enough I’m in the process of editing a documentary and have just finished

    ‘The Conversations: Walter Murch and the art of editing film’

    Him and Michael Ondaatje (The English Patient) talk film and techniques – fantastic read I can’t big it up enough
