One of the best sci-fi films of our generation might be the perfect inspiration for up-and-coming film editors.
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is a beloved film for most children of the 80s, myself included. I fondly remember that weird green VHS tape and my stuffed E.T. doll.
So I was pretty excited to see that CookeOpticsTV recently interviewed the film’s editor, Carol Littleton, about her experiences working on the movie. She discusses some great behind-the-scenes memories, too.
Check it out below and continue on to see our takeaways:
Littleton has amassed many impressive credits throughout her long career. She has won ACE Eddie Awards and worked with directors like Noel Baumbach, Lawrence Kasdan, and Jonathan Demme.
E.T. was among her earliest credits and earned her an Academy Award nomination.
