Edit & Making Movie Magic w/ In The Heights Editor Myron Kerstein!

Liz Manashil & Alrik Bursell • January 5, 2022

This week Liz and Alrik invite editor of the musical, In The Heights, Myron Kerstein on the show to talk about his two years editing the film, re-opening the edit during the pandemic to make some key changes to the film and how making this film with a 50 million dollar budget felt like a big studio crew making a movie on an indie budget. Myron gets into a lot of details with us, including the amount of VFX shots that are in the film, the challenges of editing a musical that was shot on location and what he and director Jon M. Chu changed when they reopened the edit. Don’t go away after the interview, because we have another Australian filmmaker on the show to talk about their short film, I’m Your Fool, and Liz and Alrik talk about the Get Shorty segment and what purpose they hope it’s serving!
