Crew Call: Film Editor Lynne Willingham

Two-time Emmy winner talks about her "invisible art."

Our latest Crew Call visits the edit bay with film editor Lynne Willingham, known for her work on The X-Files, True Blood, Breaking Bad, Ray Donovan and most recently The Red Road for the Sundance Channel.

A veteran of editing for television, Willingham talks about the thousands of decisions an editor has to make daily to whittle hundreds of hours of film down to a 45 minute episode.

Lynne loves working in television, stating that it’s a "wonderful place to be," and “a really great place to practice your art.”  She received two Emmys for her work on Breaking Bad.
