A few weeks ago just after the Toronto International Film Festival, the Bell Light Box held a screening of Apocalypse Now Redux.  The Special Guest was one of the cinema’s greatest film editors, film theorists and film artists, the legendary Walter Murch. Mr Murch was on hand to discuss his collaboration with Francis Ford Coppola and the remaking of their milestone war epic into its newly expanded form.

In addition Walter Murch also gave a Special Address on “The State of Cinema,” mapping out his intriguing speculations on what would have happened had the cinema been invented in 1789, a hundred years prior to its birth.

While Mr. Murch was in town,  I was contacted the Art of The Guillotine to shoot an exclusive interview him. I jumped at the opportunity to meet the legendary film editor in person.

 

Below  you can view Part 1 and 2 of the exclusive interview with Mr. Murch. The interview was conducted by the Art of the Guillotine’s founder Gordon Burkell.

Special Thanks to Bryan Atkinson for coordinating, and editing the interview.
