#3) Not having what you need can be a blessing.
Some of the coolest parts of movies I've made have come from when I had to create a sequence to tell part of the story because I didn't already have it.

I have been a working editor in Los Angeles since 1997. After spending a lot of time in short form documentary, I cut my first long form project in 2001, it was a television documentary called The Channel, about swimming the English Channel.
Since then, I've cut several feature docs, the most widely acclaimed have been Torn From the Flag, executive produced by Vilmos Zsigmond, and shot by Lazlo Kovacs, about the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and Incest-A Family Tragedy, also a multiple award winning film. The first award it won was for Best Documentary at the Beverly Hills Film Festival. Most recently I've edited/cowritten and facilitated a beautiful doc called Journey Home which you can see here: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=1188417944211 And "Bridges of My Father", a film by Raina Manuel, that I edited and wrote just got sold at Cannes.
This is from last year's premiere of Torn from the Flag. View video in full size here.
