Tribeca Film has recently released a short, two-minute clip of Keanu Reeves, the central figure in The Wachowskis’ seminal Matrix trilogy, sitting down and discussing the importance of film editing. Lana Wachowski expands on how editing in post-production is as vital as the performance itself.
This short sit-down is part of a web series called “Side Swipes,” which is releasing daily videos featuring cinematographers and directors discussing elements of film. Past interviewees include Michael Chapman, Steven Soderbergh and Martin Scorsese. “Side Swipes” are outtakes from Tribeca’s upcoming film Side by Side, which opens in select cities Aug. 17 and will release on on-demand platforms Aug. 22.
