Hollywood's finest editors, directors and stars came out for the ACE Eddie Awards to show their support and respect for another year of hard work and great movies. Michel Hazanavicius
and his co-editor Anne-Sophie Bion hit the red carpet with high hopes after all the time, energy and effort put in to one of the most uniquely outstanding films of this year and possibly this decade, The Artist
"Editing is something really, really important and it's one of my favorite parts of the process," said Michel. "I really love editing. It's like a mental construction game and I think it's really fun to do."
Michel considers editing the end of the writing process, which for The Artist took both Sophie-Anne and him about six months. That's a pretty lengthy amount of time for a silent movie! While the movie had its memorable moments, they were on a tight deadline. This was something that really stood out to Michel.
"On set, there were a lot of best moments, but we had to shoot this movie in 35 days, so we had to make the day," he said. "That was really my main concern was to finish the day, so I have a lot of wonderful memories on that movie."
Anne-Sophie didn't say too much during the interview, just that she had her fingers crossed for the Oscars and that being a part of the ACE Eddie Awards was such an amazing honor. Check out the full interview for more exclusive details about The Artist.
