“Not all treasure is silver and gold, mate”
– Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean

Film editing is why people like movies.  Because in the end, wouldn’t we all want to edit our own lives?…take out the bad parts, take out the slow parts, and look deeper into the good parts.” – Bob Cohen, Director of Triple X
