FULL VIDEO!! Editor Conversations V2: A Conversation with Legendary Film Editor Susan E. Morse, ACE



Susan E. Morse ACE, known as “Sandy,” graduated Yale with a degree in History before going to Film School at NYU. She never graduated film school, though, because she took an internship that turned into a job and she never looked back.

Early in her career she was an Assistant Editor, working on "Annie Hall" and Interiors. After assisting on a handful of films, she became Woody Allen’s film editor, across the 22-year height of his filmmaking career.

But her career isn’t all Woody. In 1980, Sandy was Associate Editor alongside Thelma Schoonmaker on "Raging Bull," worked on Marc Lawrence’s "Two Week’s Notice," "Music and Lyrics" and "Did You Hear About The Morgans?," and cut episodes of "Louie" and "Billions". Right now, she’s working down the hall here at Light Iron on a feature called "Novitiate."

She has been nominated for an Oscar, 5 BAFTAs and an Emmy. When she was honored with a Muse Award in 2005, she publicly thanked every one of her Assistant Editors as part of her presentation.
