Rad with Mr.Srinivas Mohan, VFX Expert
We have to work day & night to complete the project on time to meet the industry standards. 24 hours won't be enough for any editor.
Editors should have patience & concentration on their works, and they should know how to express their views politely on others.
Director and Editor should be in sync, otherwise project won't succeed.
» Special mention
First Indian who is gonna get OSCAR for best editing is none other than me !
