Johan Söderberg

Johan Söderberg is a new discovery for me. I'm thrilled to bits. He's the bee's knees!


If someone has the ambitions to become a good editor studying music is necessary. An editor today has to known music. [...] You have to know how to edit music, compose and create sound effects. An editor has to know how to work with video and music simultaneously. Only editing is not enough. You have to evolve and learn about music and audio. Editors than don't take this in ten years from now will not get any jobs

The editors motto number one is to kill your darlings. If you can't do that, editing is not the profession for you.

A Closed Door That Leaves Us Guessing [Pedro Costa's seminar]

It takes a lot of patience, sweat, blood, tears and fatigue to begin to represent something that is close to life.
Jean-Marie Straub describes: if there's no fire in the shot, if there's nothing burning in your shot, then it's worthless. Somewhere in the shot, something must be on fire. This fire that must always be in the shot, it's the love letter in the bank. Very few people are going to see this love letter in the bank, and still fewer are going to write a love letter in a bank.
From 12-14 March 2004, Pedro Costa offered an intensive course in filmmaking at the Tokyo Film School (under the joint auspices of Athénée Français Cultural Center and Cinematrix).

Ossos (Bones), by Pedro Costa, 1997.

Additional films:

The Tramp (Charlie Chaplin, 1915):

L'argent (Robert Bresson, 1983)

Night of the Demon (Jacques Tourner, 1957)


Masterclass con Marcelo Pedroso

Uno de los maestros que vive en la ciudad que habito actualmente, maravillosas palabras de Marcelo Pedroso.

Director y editor de Pacific, una película de material de archivo. El director acompañó un crucero a la famosa isla de Fernando de Noronha, en el noreste brasileño. Al acabar este crucero, pidió voluntariamente a todos los pasajeros las imágenes que habían registrado durante los 7 días de viaje. Con ese material, hizo una magnífica película.
