An Interview With Academy Award Winning Editor: Paul Hirsch
"Next guest is an Academy Award winning editor his book a long long time ago and cutting room far far away. My fifty years of editing in Hollywood hits Star Wars Kerry Buehler's Day off mission impossible so many more I can go on ray planes trains and we'll deals. Please welcome Paul Hurst. I Paul thanks for coming on the podcast today. Hope Your Day as well my pleasure so I mean there's the history you have. It's amazing. I mean I'm going through some of the people. Oh you've worked for John Hughes. Brian Depalma George Lucas. Is it fair to say that Brian Depalma is your mentor. I mean I've heard you say on occasion is is that a fair as a statement to make absolutely yes. Yeah and and there's so much here Chris I don't want to jump too far ahead of myself but you know just going through your filmography and you know there's tons that I've mentioned but there's also work that you've had I haven't heard it interviews but you've I think you've contributor on like World War Z.. The Great Gatsby life of Pi. How does that work? Paul you just have a little bit of an influence. You do some work in that film and you're not like the leading editor. Hugs that work. Why why aren't you credited for the same way you weren't some of your other works right? Well h film is an individual case so but usually it's. It's a picture that the studio for whatever reason has some concerns about and They they say would you mind either looking at it and giving US notes and would you mind coming in for a few weeks or it's phrased you know differently but there comes a point where frequently that's On a picture even working for many months at the director and the editor and maybe even the studio executives the producers sort of what I call snow. Snow blind no not sure what they're looking at anymore because it's been working on it so long. They don't have objected to take on. What's there and any light to bring it? Excuse me like bring in what they called fresh eyes and sometimes just watching picture giving notes and sometimes sometimes it's actually sitting down and doing a version So that's how you know And then I find that Not taking credit is a way to make my suggestions more tolerable eligible that. I'm not trying to hog credit from someone yet. It makes sense to me. Yeah you know so that. The suggestions go down uneasily could easily because they're often as genuine efforts to help. I have a question down the road that steps on this topic. But I'll ask you now because it's just it's it's appropriate at this point. Do you find that studio executives as time goes by our. I don't WanNa say the word meddling because that's has a negative connotation to it but you find that their involvement is more were. The work should probably be left to those in the creative process. Director writer editor is is it. Is it more intrusive as time goes by Paul Well I'll say this that the most successful films that I've worked on. I've been the product of my collaboration with the director. Essentially just the two of us Making decisions incisions about the cat. Now that's well said and and you know I wanNA talk a little bit about your early life so you grew up in Paris. How many years were you in Paris for Paul? I was in Paris as a child for about four years. Now are you do you still can you. Are you fluent in French. Can you still speak it as something. You influence fluence. My accent is very good. I'm fluid to the degree washing. Sam Fluent I. I always impress french-speakers but equality. My accent hurry I hasten to tell them that might calculator is very small and and I don't have a real facility. Use it sound them. But I'm sure if I went over there and spent two or three Munson Johnson total immersion. I'd I'd get back to where I had been. You know when I was eight years old so I have the vocabulary of an eight year old child but you know I think I think if I stayed there pick it up you know. Yeah that's certainly flew in my book and then you were at your dad's a painter and I have to believe you get some of his his eye for things in art history major. You're the second art history major I've had and I think what two weeks which ages which is telling because I feel history major. Paul she was. She's a costume designer urine editor. I feel like history majoring in history. GIVES YOU LA. This supreme I for details. Is that kind of going overboard or do you think there's something to that. I really don't know One way or the other. I'm an art. I was an art history. Major not major distinction there right as she the average she she was also an art history major so it was like yeah she go ahead. I'm sorry but in my case as an art history major you spend a lot of times looking and yet projected images in dark rooms and critiquing them so I was sort of being prepared for a lifetime of work. Doing just that although I wound up doing moving images instead of still ones but I think my background is was useful in terms of developing an aesthetic about the elements of life of a style in visual arts. And there are many qualities that you you know you you try to achieve whether it's you know Symmetry your balance or a brace or certain a set of qualities that he strived for that are not necessarily only in visual arts. To 'cause I majored in music in high school I went to High School of Music and art and so my work in film. I find that very closely tied to my feelings about music for for me. Music is an essential elements of my work in terms of making presentations whether it's to the director to the public or whatever music than essential ingredient in what I'm doing yes well said you know. People that are listening to this. podcast cast many see editors and they think they know what it editor's job is but many times it's a teen involvement many times. You're working claburn as you mentioned with a director. How would you? What's your cliff notes? Version of what editor is for those listening in probably aren't sure exactly what it is. How would you define an editor's job? Well I can read to you from the introduction to my book which is essentially a chapter devoted to answering exactly that question but No I I have to say I have ordered on Amazon and I did read an excerpt I think it was on entertainment magazine. Entertainment Weekly Weekly. It was a really beautiful excerpt they printed and people said some really nice things anymore. Campbell talkie movies are made in the editing room and so much of your book I want to get into. It's really an amazing. It's an amazing story. Your life is there's been so much to it you are our consensually. What the editor is doing is putting together? The experience that the audience is GonNa have and everything that's done on a film the writers the actors cinematographers the production designers. The costume designers the makeup people. Here people everything the all their work is Toward one end an s to provide the editor with raw materials. Everything they do do is in service of the cut and the editor takes everything that they have done and uses it to bill. It'll be experienced the audiences. Yeah and do you find as you because you've been so effective for so long. I mean that's a testament to your abilities. Do you find that much of your. Your work is is is with the directors. You find that a lot of it is I know George had faith in you clearly Brian has yes. I had faith you clearly. Do you find that typical or is it. Not Typical of of the job varies as much as human beings very Taylor. Is there ever a time. Where director says you know what I completely trust? You have at it and and do what you have to do or as a director always kind of in some way have to monitor the process like I said everyone's different Are Comfortable having having any drive in some of the likely take the real themselves you know so it varies from person to

"But so they still hadn't cast this part. So I bought this black wig. And I'm standing there. And I'm saying me student. He'll and I I understand will looking to cast it if of that speaks wench and all of a sudden the DP stands up ago. Peter look at her eyes. They look just like PJ's. And I'm like darn it. What are you doing? And he gets PJ's that you. As I want the part of the French Ville darling has been cast so he'd been cast, but you will model this like okay anyway. So that we use later on when I dish ind for a private Benjamin. And I had gotten the role and then Goldie Hawn decided she wanted to fire the director and get another director. And so my agent called and said all you lost the park has now there's an indirect ri- said. Well, let me audition again. Are you kidding? No, no, they don't. They're throwing out all the castle. I found out the day that are auditioning for my part. I went there. I put the wig on because the point was used busted, just look different. And also that they didn't want any blondes and. Goalie on the produce. She wanted to be the only blonde. And so she had thought about it. And now peaches Cup, long Teheran. So she's out. So I went in I busted in red for him. And it was I mean, it was a pretty forceful entry. I have to say and he's all right. You got the part. Okay. I said, I'm not get the part of wanna keep the part. The straight a wig the word totally nothing that have gotten you rolls. Let's talk a little bit. You have to make a difference. And you have to do something just a little, you know, maybe not pushy. But outstanding maybe to just wasn't there. Also, a red ball cap that diploma really responded. Exactly all my props are coming in handy. Liberty in vernacular my first audition, and I did I was I had moved from New York to LA only been out here two weeks, and I only had a modeling agency. And they said there's this mass audition, George Lucas, and Brian depalma, they're both casting. They're just going to look at people. So we should get this straight. So they George Lucas, and Brian depalma we're sharing the same casting session for Star Wars. And Kerry initial the initial auditions for the voice, you know, every teenager in town every young person come to this. And so we waited like three hours in the hallway then you walk into this office. And there's one desk two chairs George Lucas, Brian depalma, Brian looks at George. She's I'll put her on my list, George k I turned to go. I have my red baseball hat on. I'm wearing overalls because I didn't wanna look pretty I wanna look unusual again a little bit of thing. Don't go trying to be the prettiest girl have a little character. You know, so had the red baseball hat because I heard there was a lot of sun out here. You know, make sure you don't burn. And as I turned to go he said for the next audition where the hat, I said, my red baseball Howdy said where the hap- so I did and subsequent three auditions. I wore advert every time. I laughed. He said bring the hat. I wanna got the call that. I had the part. He said don't forget the hat and lucky. I don't have the hat. It was a many a couple of fans have made me a couple of hats, including the pins rainbow pins and rainbow patch and a cloud patches, a really cool habit was made a felt and I washed it found felt who knew back then I mean that was a long time ago that these things would become coveted in that there would be an e bay or there would be a Facebook or any things now how. How was diplomas a director? He seems very serious is the case he was very serious. But I think the serious part of him was because like a painter he was painting a canvas, and it was his canvas. And he wanted it to come out the way he wanted it. So there wasn't much chance for ad-libbing. Even though it wasn't an ad lib. Verbal ad-lib, but I was really only put on initially for the first week and just for the volleyball game, and because of my red hat, and.
"brian depalma" Discussed on She Who Persisted
"But it's like superpower turns into this like animal who like fights the patriarchy, but she she has sex with people, but it's like on her term, then she turns people this. There's this one scene where one of the guys had sex with ends up pissing blood. And it looks like he's getting his period because he's. Perfect. Naps a need to watch this to watch it. And there are three of them. There's like there's like a handful of who they are totally worth watching. I I've really, you know, the special effects on it or are, criticized. But it's a I I think it's a great movie. Yeah. I really really enjoyed it. Yeah. It sounds like the female and empowering version of this mailings IT around ministration. Yeah. Exactly. And this whole idea of her turning into a where wolf as she gets her period is the same idea of like a metaphor for purity. But it's not like this Negga. It's they have power and they can take revenge instead of instead of being victimized. It's great via talking about animals creed creed. Also, I mean, this is I don't know how to bring it back to the topic. But yeah, that's fine. I think it wasn't that bad. Creed. Also says interesting I didn't really know what to make of it. But she says that in the film, and apparently this is something that comes up out of the horror films. There is this link between women pigs. So in the exorcist, we have the scene. What Reagan shouts the size mine? I think carrying she stretching pig's blood and also in the scene before prom when the girls actually get the pig. Blood bay, keep referring to women's pigs. And then she says well as because both pigs and women bleed, and then also pay kind of associated with the critique discussing body. So yeah, find that interesting. I know what to make of it. If you think about the kosher and Islam ick hall restrictions on eating pork. And they talk about pigs being kind of dirty animals, and they did have diseases most pork. These days doesn't have noses and other types of diseases because they're raised differently and cleaner in whatever. But but yet I mean, we've seen that women who have periods are also shunned by these same cultures told not to be part of religious ceramah. Oni? So this kind of connection between pigs and women, particularly in terms of menstruating women. I can see what she's saying, especially because the flow of blood is I think in immagination connected to pigs because we also the saying to bleed like a pig, at least we have it in gem. Yeah. And so the film is very much about bleeding and about the terrifying powers of blood menstrual blood and also about blood flow is kind of one of the initiating moments for women into womanhood. Yeah. And there are many instances in fill with blood is very prominent does of 'cause the first flow of menstrual blood. We have the pig blood in the end than we have the washing off of blood in the very end, which offend also very very interesting. I talked briefly about this because it's not just Mira full to the showering thing. But it could also be analyzed in religious terms. And we talked about menstruation to booze. We talked about the. The symbolic. Ritualistic cleansing that women have to go through in some cultures. So and it also reminded me of that. So she goes home. She lies down in this fetal position of top in washes off both blood and makeup, which of both sides of womanhood. Then this mixture of blood and Wolter, and she kind of cleanses herself. And I think that's interesting. So another incident of blood vary end is mother's wounds. Right. And then cheese rooms. Yeah. Yeah. No. I mean, I think it's a I think a lot of Mirroring and a lot of symbolism that can be drawn in this film. I think that Brian depalma actually does a pretty good job of showing that Mirroring symbolism in the movie despite the the other kind of shortfalls like really kind of voyeuristic male gaze. That's to be expected in most films in the seventies. So I have a question does sure English language version of Kerry have a subtitle. There is a subtitle. There are subtitles story. Yes. Because the German version is cold. Oh. Oh, you mean. Oh, you mean, the title does have a subtitle? I don't believe..
"brian depalma" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind
"Hey, welcome to stuff to blow your mind. My name is Robert lamb and I'm Joe McCormick and Robert. I wanna talk about a certain kind of movie scene. Okay. I know you've seen movies like this. I was trying to think of examples and for some reason, the only really good one I could think of was the Brian depalma mission impossible movie. Okay, there there are tons of examples. So here's what the scene is. A character is having a realization about something that happened in the realization takes the form of remembering something from earlier in the movie and suddenly zooming in on some detail in the background of the shot. That was not noticed the first time around. So in the Brian depalma mission impossible, there's a scene where Tom Cruise is remembering scenes that happened earlier, but like zooming in on people in the background and being there were other agents, their agents there all along which in the in the structure of the film, it is basically the character. Remembering scenes that were already depicted in the film yet maybe with a zoom or something, but but but now they have they have additional information regarding what they were looking at. They're able to think back and essentially remember detailed that they had overlooked. Yeah, and that that is often how memory is portrayed in fiction right there in there's this great kind of drama to write like, oh, it was right in front of my eyes. It's right where I was looking, but it was, you know, I didn't realize it until now. It's like they, they posit that memory works like a camera where you can take a picture of a scene, and then later go back and look at that picture again and pick out different details in the background of the picture that you didn't notice the first time. Yeah, it's it's depending on this, like you said, if this fallacy of of memory as recording. Yeah, as recording that can be replayed and then studied again for detail the same kind of fallacy. Honestly, that is a that has been utilized in remembering, quote, unquote, remembering ritualized, satanic abuse. Oh, yeah, other such things. Yeah. All the idea about re recovered memory at highly problematic concept. But yeah, it's not just what I want to emphasize today though, because we've talked about problematic concepts of memory all the time about like the idea that you can retrieve information you didn't have before the very, very doubtful. But I wanna talk about the idea of seeing itself because another thing that's involved in this movie scene where somebody takes a picture of what's in front of their eyes. And then later they go back and zoom in on different elements is the idea that whatever is in front of your eyes is recorded in some way because it, you know, it's apparent. It's obvious that you have access to the information because you looked right at it. And so what we want to talk about today is whether that's actually true and. What it means for information to be obvious visually or otherwise, and what it means to see and in doing so we're, we are going to discuss the invisible gorilla. Classic psychology experiment, but it..
"brian depalma" Discussed on Whimsically Volatile
"Yeah, wouldn't it be good if the in in an action film where they're just sticking. Ages die and they cycled through like fifty fifty leading, right? Yeah, and the cutbacks emission control looking at the little scanner that somehow tells them that they're alive or dead, and they're like, now that one's gone again. I don't get get get what char ski on this. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. It's. I just think it's so crazy, and that'd be a good chunk of the film. They just keep sending people to do this one procedure that just kills everybody. Yeah. And then at the end, the go, I don't know. I think we're burning through a lot of personnel. I mean, maybe we should just wrap this whole thing up. Yeah, and then credits. Yeah, yeah, mission, impossible mission. Impossible, literally full. Yeah, mission really wasn't possible. Yeah. And so that movie was really fifth or sixth one, I think, right. Yeah. I get to see the first one, which I can't believe I haven't seen because it's directed by Brian depalma. Oh yeah. Interesting, right. Yeah, boy, they, I mean, I'm telling you is action packed? Yeah. Who an action scene? He knows how to do suspense. Also with an action film, you need a touch suspense or else. It's just like big blasts of things happening. Yeah, at one after the other. Yeah, they had. They had Scooby doo mask reveals, oh, in the first one? No. In this one. Oh, really? I guess it's like a, is it a thing at the thing. Yeah, it was the dad also tickled me very much because I'm like, oh. So. There doesn't exist in this world. A prosthetic that is realistic. Our see she put over human head. That's right. Make it look like another human head. That's right. As we've discovered by looking at the fem skin phenomenon and there certainly isn't one that you can just rip off also true also. True. They're not easy to slide off. No, they don't. It's not Halloween mask. That's right. You just take off of mannequin just stick it on your head. 'cause those don't look like people know. They don't doubt. Looks like a mask. It looks like a mask like, uh, again, the fem skins out. I guess I had a problem with my suspension of disbelief because I just like, well, see, it's funny because suspension of disbelief is critical to so many films any film really? Right. But sometimes there's these things that stick out his so jarringly annoyingly impossible even with its mission, impossible nece that it taints the whole thing..
"brian depalma" Discussed on Night Call
"It's kind of part of this larger argument that she has just about like what actually constitutes feminists film or like feminist oriented film and it's not usually the thing that's being called a feminist film and also the title feminist film usually doesn't mean anything especially when you're talking about a film directed by man like the most like a film can really only be feminist like a medicine as far as like how it's being made and whose point of view is being prioritized and that brian depalma movie about harvey weinstein he just announced he's making maybe not something that i'm like expecting laws yeah all i mean it's hard because i love carey and i think it's a very feminist where i also am like well i mean it's better than not doing anything i guess but it's really hard when you hear a man a white man in their seventies be like you know i really want to show a woman's perspective like we'll able to do that pretty effectively a woman makes doing this interesting experiment why can't men have opinions of those like you can have opinions you just also have fifty million movies made by mad about this and maybe because anna biller is also saying like she's making bluebeard movie all we're all big fans bluebeard but that's that's my man was like some men the robots just replace women because then you don't feel bad about putting them in the junk room it's a horror movie so you have to be able to show the horror i get that right but she was just saying like horrors become so narrow that like nothing has advanced genre even like the meta thing meta critiques of final girl genre and it just like reinforce this one girl is better than all the other girls like i think the thing that's like more gracious to me is like sure you can you can have that structure but like when you can feel the film is trying to be like look girl power after watching you know.
"brian depalma" Discussed on Q: The Podcast from CBC Radio
"A bunch of kids how these think that these trailers would already be kind of preselected and i don't know how that happened but i loved it happened i mean it's really good pr i is great it's funny because i i don't see the trailers being that scary i i love the trailer i think eight twenty four has done an amazing job with the marketing and it's been so so exciting to watch as a first time filmmaker but it is funny that that even the trailer has gained that reputation are you get scared by films i mean when i was a kid there were few films that really like rex may and sometimes i do get scared by films but when i was a kid you know brian depalma's carrie really really upset me and a very very deep way i saw it when i think eleven or twelve also resolution there either like no great no great resolution there no i mean it's deeply sad horror film it's also very funny it's very campy i watched it again recently i was shocked at how campy it was but my memories were of just the heaviest film imaginable so you can relate to that experience of leaving the theater your heart still kind of racing and what am i pretty you told me i was kinda pale when it came but you can relate to this well in that case i watched the film wasn't that upset by it that was good and then it was when i tried going to bed that the images were like really not going away and they are getting worse and they're preying on my i mean that's really insinuated itself into my consciousness and then there's another phone called the cook the thief his wife and her lover by peter greenaway and that film isn't technically a horror film but it is deeply upsetting dealing with very ugly human behavior but that that film i saw when i was too young and that that really affected me at images really stayed with me i know that that that film was rated nc seventeen it was the first nc seventeen film and he asked what he could do to to change the rating to an art and they said nothing it's the tone and that makes sense to me because the tone is so punishing end just it it's a film that feels evil and so when i said.
"brian depalma" Discussed on The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith
