Making Movie History: Edouard Davidovici

| 4 min

In a long and happy career at the NFB, master editor Edouard Davidovici witnessed the evolution of editing techniques. Before non-linear digital technology became the norm, Davidovici and his colleagues were adept at handling the raw material of cinema, cutting and splicing film on stand-up Moviolas or flatbed Steenbecks. As chief editor at the NFB, he oversaw the picture and sound edit of hundreds of productions in a range of genres.
