The Movie Crypt

PUBLIC VERSION. Editor Fred Raskin (ONCE UPON A TIME… IN HOLLYWOOD, THE HATEFUL EIGHT, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, THE SUICIDE SQUAD) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his career journey so far. From an NYU student considering directing as a career… to his realization that his love of editing was a better and more realistic fit… to paying his dues (like many of this podcast’s previous guests) at the school of Troma… to working his way up as an assistant editor to some of the industry’s titans of the craft… to finding himself in the incredible position of working in the most creatively intimate position possible with filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino and James Gunn on some of the biggest films of the last decade. Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a filmmaker looking to do things the right way and the boys absolute geek out in one of the most enthusiastic conversations about post production that you’ll ever hear!
