Walter Murch, who will come in November to Bydgoszcz to meet the festival’s participants and accept Camerimage Special Award to Editor with Unique Visual Sensitivity, is one of the most fascinating figures of American cinema and a true master of film editing and sound design. Still working today and wonderfully outspoken about his craft and experiences gathered throughout the years, Murch is a perfect lecturer and interviewee. Thus, before we will have a chance to share our own videos from his visit at Camerimage, here’s a couple of films dedicated to Walter Murch’s talent and professional ethos. Just to give you a hint of what’s going to happen in November. Enjoy!
