Behind The Scenes: Moonrise Kingdom’s Post-Production Process
Discover the editing process and techniques used for Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom.
Hollywood heavyweight Wes Anderson tasked editor Andrew Weisblum with executing the creative vision for his newest film, Moonrise Kingdom. Andrew brought years of editing experience to the project, from his past work with Wes Anderson and director Darren Aronofsky (he was nominated for an Oscar in 2011 for his editing of Black Swan). In a recent interview with Oliver Peters, Andrew describes the creative process, editing techniques and post-production workflow that went into crafting Moonrise Kingdom.
Moonrise Kingdom was cut both on location and in the weeks following production. Weisblum and his assistant relied heavily on an Avid based workflow, with all Super 16 files transferred to the Avid DNxHD format.
