- Richard Francis-Bruce

You don't cut any differently for a comedy than you edit for a drama. You edit the way it should be put together. In other words, you edit the best way to make the scene work. A story has to play, a scene has to work.

- Peter Zinner

The essence of cinema is editing. It's the combination of what can be extraordinary images of people during emotional moments, or images in a general sense, put together in a kind of alchemy.

- Francis Ford Coppola
